There is some lovely classical music happening while I wait for the call to begin. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 10:54AM
The first 20 minutes will be exclusively will Alan Menken. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 10:58AM
Coolness indeed :-) - uscdisneyteacher  8403.8 #10 11:01AM
Jeffrey Epstein from D23 is speaking. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:08AM
Q: Can you talk about the Disney Songbook and what you're most looking forward to playing on Saturday? A: The great thing about Disney songs is that they all live in a context. the ones i grew up with are the ones that most stick with me, like pinocchio. like i've got no strings. your mother and mine from dumbo. it's hard to differentiate them because they were so part of the movies they were part of. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:10AM
he's now singing some of "be like you" from jungle book. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:10AM
Ooooooooooooo :-) - uscdisneyteacher  8403.8 #10 11:12AM
I think you mean 'ooo bee doo'. πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 1:37PM
what is it about the disney songbook that catches people? a: for me, it's the fact that they're tied so specifically to movie. they're not just songs that they slide in randomly. the disney songbook, each song really encapsulates the movie, a different character, a different era, a different time in a person's life. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:12AM
a: there's no cynicism in the disney songbook. there's heartfelt storytelling in these songs. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:13AM
q: what's it like to perform in front of people who eat, sleep, and breathe disney? a: it's great fun. it's a shared experience. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:14AM
a: there's a lack of cynicism with the D23 audience. they're there to love it. no one's sitting there with their arms folded. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:14AM
q: when you're writing a disney song do you feel you have to approach it differently? a: the process for me is very much the process of writing a musical. disney has been the studio that has been the most supportive of writing songs in that way. where the difference comes in in it being disney is a sense of responsibility to convey the message of the song and approach to storytelling. this is an audience that will embrace what you do and take it to heart entirely. so you kinda have to cherish the audience as you write these songs and care about them. the disney tradition is a #1 great america tradition. you don't wanna cross lines. you wanna poke fun but you don't wanna poke fun in a way that's hurtful. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:17AM
a: we're among the writers telling how are we gonna tell the story through song? we're very involved. you wanna make sure the audience is very clear what the songs are going to do. sometimes they're very tongue-in-cheek like in enchanted and aladdin...making sure the attitude is clear and the genre is clear. "oh, i get it! you're doing a maurice chavleir number but it's for a candlestick!" - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:19AM
q: is there any fanboy nervousness about performing with him? a: richard is such a nice man! he's been an extraordinarily supportive presence in my life ever since i started at disney. he was just welcoming and generous and warm. i consider richard sherman to be a dear friend and i'm really looking forward to the two of us performing. i presume we're gonna have a lot of fun. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:21AM
q: obscure disney song you're most proud of? a: i'm proud of "will the sun ever shine again?" i wrote that around 9/11 and it captured the emotion of us and the studio. i loved "the gospel truth". i think that song was a lot of fun. "if i never knew you". we lost it the first time around, we got it back. i think it's a very emotional song that i'm very proud of. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:23AM
richard is now on the line with alan!!!!! - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:24AM
q: was it difficult trying to select certain songs for the concert? a: it's always a challenge picking out just the right material. we did have some requests from our hosts. maybe the biggest challenge is which of the unknown songs so i wanna do? r: we have so many to choose from. what we try to do is a potpurri...a sampling of various things over the years. it's like looking at all my children and figuring out which one you will take on an outing. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:26AM
sherman and menken say there won't be many "little known" songs at the D23 expo concert. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:29AM
r: there's a couple of things i'm looking forward to coming to stage. jungle book is on its feet! i have a couple of other things but i don't wanna talk too much until it's a reality. a: it would be neat to see hercules. we're working on a cruise ship version of tangled. enchanted, again. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:30AM
r: when we did poppins people asked which is the song that's gonna take off? i remember my brother saying the one that's gonna take off is "stay awake" *chuckles* - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:32AM
a: during little mermaid we thought "kiss the girl" would be our single. "part of your world" we almost lost. r: i love that song. beautiful. just beautiful. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:33AM
a: we both are a part of a very exclusive club. r: we both have long histories with the disney company. i was lucky to work with the genius himself, walt disney.i always felt honored that i was working for his company...walt set a high standard for us. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:37AM
favourite song the other has done? a: supercala, but there could not have been an under the sea without a supercala. the exuberance and catchiness of it gets in your system. r: the song that gets to me more than i think "suddenly seymour" and "part of your world" gets to me. it just really does. if you just try to pick one it's impossible. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:40AM
q: what are you looking forward to at the D23 expo? r: there's a world of wonderful wonderful experiences to see at that exhibit. i know we'll be watching and looking at a lot of things. a: there'll be a lot of friends there. r: experience the joy that'll be exuberated by all the people. a: EXUBERATED??? r: you like that? a: I DO! - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:43AM
r: this man can carry on a wonderful tradition. this team: alan menken and howard ashen. a: there was a graciousness and generosity in richard that's unique in our business. it's truly unique. it's something until my dying day i will cherish. it's something you sense in his songs but it's there in the man. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:45AM
now just time with Richard Sherman!!!! - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:46AM
q: which of your songs do you feel was the most challenging to develop and why? r: everytime it's a blank page it's a mess and a challenge. i think we were trying to top a song we had done in poppins. we were trying to top a pre-song. we were told this song wouldn't work, it needed pep in it. we were trying to come up with a slogan, like a stitch in time saves nine or an apple a day keeps the doctor away. my brother's son jeff came home from school one day and said he had to take medicine. he asked "did it hurt?" and he said "no, they put the medicine on a cube of sugar" - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:49AM
R: it doesn't take much to give love and smile. Walt got it immediately. giving one's self and it doesn't take much to do that. that's why i love feed the birds. it was Walt's favourite. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:51AM
r: you write what's appropriate and every job is a challenge...when we first say animatronics coming up in something called the enchanted tiki room we came up with a little calypso number called "the tiki tiki room"...you have to write a song that sounds like them. everything is its own challenge whether it be a building, a character, or a marvelous make believe character like mary poppins. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:53AM
Richard confirms he'll be performing both attractions and movies music on Saturday! - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:54AM
"i have a good time." -richard on the secret of his longevity - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:56AM
r: 90% of the songs that we wrote for disney films were written for the characters in the screenplay, in the story. 5 or 10 percent would have been that we knew maurice chevalier would be cast and write for him...we wrote for mary poppins to sing, not for julie andrews to sing." - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 11:58AM
at the concert: first, richard will play then alan. at the end both will come together and talk about their roots and play songs that are very special to them. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 12:00PM
Richard Sherman: disney fans already know but there's a wonderful thing about being positive instead of negative. both alan and i have been blessed to be chored with writing upbeat things...with good will in them. we've both been blessed with that. there's nothing cynical in our work. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 12:03PM
Thanks everyone for following. Both men are an absolute delight who have nothing but amazing things to say about the other and who truly revel in the optimism that Disney and Disney fans love. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 12:05PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.2 #325 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7435 11:53PM

I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1185 5:04PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge.

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105871 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6441.7 #20 8:10PM
