 Best Post of the Day 8-28-13
Last night I was on the bridge for WOC and I was talking with a family and the Dad told me that the family had been saving for the past 3 years just to come to the resort for 4 days. I asked how their trip was and the Dad started venting about a few things he was disappointed with (none of which Disney has control over) and it broke my heart a little. Being from SoCal I sometimes forget how fortunate I am to live so close to the parks and be able to go (as a guest) as often as I do. I didn't want this family to go home and feel their trip was just "ok" so I asked my lead if there was anything we could do for them to add a little magic to their night. After a little discussion we decided to get them ice cream! I walked the Dad over and he chose the Mickey ice cream sandwiches. When he went back to his family the kids were so excited. They had a great view for WOC and now a special treat. It made my night knowing I was able to do something to hopefully turn their trip around. It wasn't much but it was enough-the family thanked me and the Dad gave me a hug. A little later I had my check in with my manager and he presented me with my ears! He also told me that he swore I had been working for Disney at least a year and was surprised to learn I had just completed probation. He said he sees me as a leader and is impressed with me and pretty much said I could cross train at ANY attraction on the Pier!!! It nice to be recognized for working hard. I love working at the Resort and I'm truly blessed! I've had an amazing 4 months and I work with some amazing people! (Ok-this post is long enough! Lol)

That brought a huge smile to my face. You were meant to be a CM and I am happy to know that you are there doing what you love.  - ItsADisneyLife4Me  211.2 #1912 8:17AM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  159.1 #2631 3:57PM
Hi @@@@@@Admin I filled out the form for 2/28 at Hojo and haven't seen any Credits. I also sent you a Support Ticket last week. Would you please look into this? As always, Thanks  @@@@@@Admin - Winnie111286  18248.9 #3 10:50PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  64.0 #4433 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  6905.2 #17 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2764.8 #54 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.5 #257 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  245.1 #1463 6:54PM

Good job!!   - Ilovegoofy  70.1 #4264 10:28AM
I think one of you were just ahead of me today.  Most of the rides had the right wait time posted so they didnt need updating. - sallen848  186.7 #2218 10:51PM
Go ahead and update it as admin needs them posted as current time as possible. You can have ten people with you inputting times themselves and it still helps the app! (As long as all are on their own account I should clarify)😍 thanks for doing wait times, it helps us all!! - secretagentangel  6905.2 #17 1:19PM

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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 #330 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7482 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #517 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  176.8 #2350 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75891 12:12PM
