Today is my 1 year MW Anniversary!!! I can't believe how fast it's gone by and how many new friends I have made along the way. So, here is my MW story: My family relocated to SoCal in 2011 due to my husband's job. I left my career of 10 years and my friends to move to a new city where I knew no one. Being a new stay-at-home Mom was an adjustment for me and I craved meeting new people with similar interests. That's where MW comes in. Between dropping kids off at school, cleaning bathrooms and laundry I found MW. At first I was a lurker. I used MW only to get information for our Disneyland trips and to find tips and news updates. Then, one day I had a question, so I mustered up the courage to post in the lounge for the first time 😁. I was welcomed with open arms 😊. From that day forward, I started making connections and have made some wonderful friends. I went from lonely and isolated to having an amazing group of people treat me like family. Shortly after, I decided to embark on my 1st meet-up. We attended a BBQ in San Marcos. That group of MW'ers sealed the deal for me! They were truly so welcoming and friendly. Since then, I have been to more meet-ups, done RAK's, won RAK's, attended the reunion and have met some of the nicest people in my life. Thank you Admin for creating this wonderful community. It has added so much joy to my life. And thank you to those who have welcomed me and my family into your lives. I appreciate the laughs, words of encouragement and the beautiful memories I will hold close to my heart. Sorry for the long post. I hope everyone has a magical day!

When I asked they said the 1st or 2nd week of October depending on if they stay on schedule. It sounds so amazing. The girl working there said it will be very interactive. - goofymom2boys  1507.2 #117 4:51PM

Happy MW anniversary. How neat that this app has helped with your move. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1851.7 #98 5:43PM
Thank you, it really has. It was so hard feeling alone. I have my husband and kids, but friendships are so important. Every time I posted Disneyland pics on Facebook, people would say, "oh, you're going again" or "do you live there now". They didn't really understand like MW'ers understand. It's nice to find people who enjoy what you enjoy and appreciate it. - goofymom2boys  1507.2 #117 5:48PM

Happy MWaversary!! I am SO glad you are a part of this app! You are the first MWer that I ever talked to through DM, cause I won your Valentine's day cards RAK. I was sooo excited to win a RAK being a new mousewaiter. I was in awe that this community was soo generous to just give things away to complete strangers. I remember contacting you before the reunion to ask if you were going to go, so atleast I would feel like I sorta knew one person there. I had such a great time at the reunion and am so glad I had the opportunity to meet you and your wonderful son. You helped me fall in love with this app and feel like I was apart of it! Thanks for your involvement here! I look forward to many more fun times ahead!!  - lohofosho  785.0 #245 7:48PM
Oh, loho! That is so incredibly sweet. I remember when you won my RAK. I fell in love with your username. Then when you walked up to me at the reunion, it was like seeing an old friend. Then we ran into each other a few more times at the parks the next day...so fun! It still blows my mind how many wonderful people I have met on this app. You are one of those special people I will always cherish. Thank you for the kind words. Can't wait to see you again soon 😘 - goofymom2boys  1507.2 #117 7:56PM

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. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  297.6 #0 2:46PM

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 #324 5:39PM

Easily manage the social side of MouseWait for Disneyland and Disney World with our new mousetopia app for iOS. Post to the DL or WDW side, use your Stickers, and utilize our new MouseWait Messenger. Optimized for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6! See what's new here


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 #105810 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.
