I hate to ask, but my mom just passed away on the 20th suddenly. I have had no help from family in regards to services and everything. Not a single card saying anyone is sorry from family. It all just seems like a nightmare, like it didn't happen. I am hoping I can bring myself together to bring my mini to Disneyland this weekend as the both of us are having a horrible time dealing with my mom's death. I want to take her to get her mind into some happiness. Has it been super busy with summer crowds still? May I ask for pixie dust and well wishes during this hard time. I hate to ask. But I need all I can get right now. Being an only child I don't have siblings to lean on or much family that is there to help me. So I am turning to my MW family. Thank you in advance.

When my mom went to Heaven, i went through the same thing but I had siblings and no one wanted to help me because of a lot of issues in our family.  Plus it was sudden and all of a sudden I am now completely  in charge of a brother who is difficult at best to deal with his mental illness and disabilities.  so i am crying for you right now and know exactly what you are going through and if I could hug you right through the computer I would.  I am just so sorry, sorry, sorry, and you need to give yourself a day where you sit with her and have a coffee or snack or whatever just like you used to so you know you can talk to her at any time, it is just something that helps, my sister in law gave me that pearl of wisdom a year later.  she and her mom have "coffee" about once a week.  it helps you heal and the first few convos will be full of tears and hurt.  after a year or a few it does not get better, but you learn to live with it.  embrace her, talk about her with your daughter,( I wrote everything down in a book about her so I would not forget anything). that is what is so hard for me, I have no one rational to talk to who knew her and can reminisce with and it sounds like you need help with that too.  dm me for my number, I can meet you at dl or wherever if you just need someone to talk to about her. I will cry with you, whatever you need, just so sorry for your loss.  Dear Lord, please bless our sweet friend and give her comfort to remember all the wonderful times she had with her mom, and please let her know  You are there, she is not alone ever.  and help us be a comfort to her too.  thank You Lord, in Jesus's name, Amen. - secretagentangel  8073.1 #11 10:35PM
Lord, I pray for her and her daughter. Be with them as they are grieving. Please help them to find comfort and peace during this sad time. Let them know they are loved, and you will be by there side always. In Jesus Christs name, Amen. I'm so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers โคโคโคSending love your way - sparkleally29  8.4 #13063 12:18AM

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I cannot help with park info as I am not local but with school starting I can only assume crowds will be lighter. I sure can send you a heaping helping of pixie dust and prayers though ๐Ÿ™โœจ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ™ - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  473.0 #488 10:15PM

I wish I could answer your question about the crowds, but tomorrow will be my first day back in the park now that I am unblocked. Hope you are able to get to the park and find yourself a happy place as you cope with your loss. Hang in there. - DisneyFan77  839.6 #236 10:30PM
I am so sorry for your loss.  Hopefully some time in the parks will be a good distraction and you can have a little happy time.  Hugs and pixie dust being sent your way. - FanofGaston  227.3 #1712 10:36PM
My heart is truly breaking for you, and your daughter. I will be praying for your comfort . I hope you both can have a healing, and bonding time together at the parks as well. - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #654 10:37PM
I'm so sorry sweetie, I just want to ((hug)) you guys! Please know in your heart you are both loved and cared for by many. I hope a little Disney magic will give you some comfort from your loss. Sending pixie dust and prayers.  - piratelife4me  1069.4 #189 10:38PM
It devastating to lose a family member, and then have no help with taking care of any of the arrangements.  I'm so sorry that your immediate family has not stepped up to the plate.  As part of your MW family, please know that I am here for you and anytime you just need to vent, she'd some tears or have someone lend you a hearing ear... You can count on me.  Prayers and pixie dust to you and your mini.  โœจโœจ - DisneyDavidEMT  2786.4 #54 10:38PM
Thoughts prayers and some pixie dust to you...crowds today were pretty light  - greenalien39  426.8 #554 10:42PM
Wow, so incredibly sorry! Sending big prayers your way and I can't think of a better place than Disney to help you cope and cheer you guys up. Years ago, I lost my mom unexpectedly (on the 20th of a month, as well) and I feel her presence at the park on her favorite ride (matterhorn) and restaurant (carnation cafe). Maybe your mom's favorite things at DL will become that much more special to you, too. ๐Ÿ™((Hugs)) - Nala  383.0 #629 10:43PM
Disneyland would definitely help you. We went to Disneyland a week after my father died and it helped. Of course he died right before Christmas and so crowds were super crazy (we got there on New Year's Eve). My prayers are with you and I don't know how your family hasn't said sorry for your loss. It might be that they don't know what to say. Praying for you during this difficult time.  - warchanted  174.9 #2399 10:52PM
Sorry for your loss. Sort of the same happened with me in 2010, ironically APs were her last gift to me (she passed 2 weeks after my birthday). For me the parks helped, as did my daughter and wife. It's hard to realize that you are a parent first and a child second when that happens. Chin up, brave face for your child...besides your mom would want you to smile. Per your question, parks are busy but not overly.  - dizneedude  1807.5 #102 10:55PM
Cannot imagine what you're going through. So sorry for your loss. Prayers & pixie dust absolutely coming your way!!  - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #323 10:56PM

i dM'd you - misschurro  7743.6 #14 11:02PM
My heart and prayers go out to you because i understand. My father passed away 2weeks ago and i have had no family to talk with at all. I have family alive but very dysfunctional and i am not close to them.  There was no funeral just a get together that was for my step mother and step sisters that i was not a part of and i was his only biological daughter,so i have had no real closure.  i have tried to hold it together for my mini and finish the summer on a high note. It isnt easy and i have had many sleepless night. Stay strong for your mini and know that with MW you are never alone.  - TrampsLady  1641.8 #111 11:01PM
i have been thinking of you a lot. ((( hugs))) - misschurro  7743.6 #14 11:03PM
Thank you :-) - TrampsLady  1641.8 #111 11:07PM
We should find a day to go to Disneyland together and get to know each other. It would be nice to talk to someone who could understand more from where I am coming from. All that was had when I went to make arrangements for my mom, was her brother and wife and their grown adult kids having breakfast. Not even really mentioning my mom. They couldn't help me with a single dime when there for everything but they could afford to buy beer and get their nails done while I was there.  About a week before, they were able to purchase flowers and pay respects to a young close family friend who passed from cancer complications. There was one family member, my cousin Eddie who came to the hotel and spent time with me, talked about my mom and his memories and just made me feel closer to my mom. That was the only thing that stood out. I feel like I am not doing things right for her. I am doing the best I can, but it just doesn't feel right. I don't know. I am sorry about the loss of your father. :( - LuvsTigger  1675.8 #109 11:16PM
You are doing what is your best, and your mom made you so she would understand everything. I think we can all look at the horrible things that happen during this time and you can either forgive these people and try to forget it or let the anger eat at you. I totally know how horrible it feels to not have anyone who puts your mom or dad first and all you ask yourself is why didn't the world stop and realize my mom/dad are gone??? It will get better, kind of, not gonna sugar coat it, this is one of the hardest things to go through. I just hope you both can find a way to honor your parents in a way that helps you too, maybe plant something, make something, even a memorial page on facebook or another website, just hope it helps you heal. I will dm you two also, maybe we should have a memorial meetup at the bday bash on tom sawyers island to all just remember our family. I will come for you two. - secretagentangel  8073.1 #11 12:51AM
I am so sorry for your loss, sending hugs and prayers of comfort for you and your mini, just relax and have a wonderful time at Mickey's house. - Sleepingbeautysmom  334.7 #773 11:02PM
We are so sorry for your loss and are sending many prayers and pixie dust your way...we were at the parks today and it was busy but not crazy busy are you planning on going tomorrow? Also sending you hugs through the air, take it a little at a time, just know you have people out here to support you and lift you up in prayer. What was your mom's name? - montanadj  255.5 #1366 11:02PM
Not this weekend. We just got back from Las Vegas where she lived cleaning her studio out and making arrangements. Not sure when I get to go pick up her ashes, so that will decide when we get to go. Her name is Diana. - LuvsTigger  1675.8 #109 11:17PM
I am so so sorry to hear this!! I know the feeling all too well! Feel free to DM me for a shoulder to lean on, it was five months ago I was in your shoes!! I am sending you huge hugs and healing thoughts!!  - Deltachiq  1244.3 #152 11:05PM
So sorry to hear about your loss!  Sending you and your mini lots of pixie dust during this difficult time.  You both will be in my thoughts and prayers.  I hope that you and your mini will be able to find some comfort in going to the parks and knowing that you have an MW family to turn to.   - DisLUVney  637.7 #341 11:06PM
So sorry for your loss. Hope that the family can come together. Sometimes a day of getting away can help you think and relieve stress. Spending time with your daughter would be great. May God give you the strength through this difficult time. There will be many praying for you.  - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2301.4 #73 11:06PM
Thank you everyone. It truly means a lot. I just can't get over the sick feeling I have inside. I have to travel back to Vegas to pick up her ashes. It was the worst thing to leave today and not have her with me. I cannot wait to get back there to have her with me again. I need her here with me. - LuvsTigger  1675.8 #109 11:08PM
God bless and safe trip! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 11:19PM

So very sorry to hear of your loss. There is nothing more painful or difficult than losing someone you love so much. It helps to have a listening ear on the days when you just need to let it all out, that is something you'll always have within this community. My heart goes out to you and your mini, sending you both thoughts, prayers, pixie dust and hugs.  - makingmemories  311.9 #900 12:10AM
So much love, prayers and pixie dust are coming from my family to yours. May you be able to find happiness at Disneyland and feel love and security from this family called mousewait.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I went through a similar situation, but I had the support of my brother.  It's still never easy and I still have a hard time with it.  After my mom's passing, my brother and I took our families to Disneyland a week later.  At first I thought I shouldn't be going that soon, but it was truly the best thing that I could do.  It lifted my spirits so much, even though there were lots of tears from the memories.  You have lots of love and support here and if you ever need to talk, I know that many of us would be happy to listen anytime.  I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and sending you pixie dust and a big hug.   - snowwannab  759.0 #274 11:48AM
From the bottom of my heart, I thank each of you for taking the time to send us pixie dust, prayers and comforting words. I am not much for words right now. I am sorry. But please know I thank each of you deeply. - LuvsTigger  1675.8 #109 11:35AM

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 week of August 29, 2016. OK , I'll add some more for this week while admin is busy. ย ย starting with Monday August ย 29th we are getting ready to say goodbye to Paint The Night . This will be the last week for it to be run ย two times a night until it goes on hiatus for a while until the holidays. So expect crowds, especially at night, to be a little bigger. Last week the major crowds came in on Friday about 7 PM and the park really filled up. Expect that again this weekend especially because it's Labor Day weekend. ย it's also ย race weekend which means races on Friday , Saturday , and Sunday so there will be road closures during the early morning until about noon along Disney way. And downtown Disney parking will be very crowded since half the parking lot is taken up by event booths. Include with that it being Labor Day and Monday being the last night to see Paint The Night for a while, ย the the park will probably be very crowded. So bring your patience and bring some extra water. And have fun!ย  - secretagentangel Aug 29, 2016 11:51PM



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  643.7 #336 5:39PM

August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD ย  ice cream ย store till midnight.ย  - secretagentangel  8073.1 #11 1:41PM

I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 7:03PM
