On Oct 1st 2009, nearly 4 years ago, I received an ipod touch for my 16th birthday. One of the first apps I downloaded was MouseWait. I loved Disney and I wanted to use my new piece of technology to support my addiction.
I didn't realize then how much MouseWait would be a part of my life.
Unfortunately after two years of using the app I lost my ipod. This was right before (or around) the switch of having to login in. So my username and all my past interactions were gone, but no fear! I remade my account in 2011 with a fancy new iPhone.
For the most part I just lurked (obsessively). Lately I've had the courage to get more involved. I've also moved to LA so I can make the trip to Disneyland more often.
It's been nice seeing names and remembering them from my first months on MW.
I couldn't be more proud of this app. It's nice not having to post a link to a photo and just being able to post it directly! And it's nice having a login so you can sign on from all your devices.
I do miss the first year of MW, when I was able to read every single post. Everyday I made it my mission to read all of them. But that was when there was less people.
I'm also glad that the midnight posts still happen. With someone new hosting though, correct?
I'm also surprised that there isn't a roll call post everyday like their used to be.
Thank you admin for letting me experience the growth of MW and it's community.
And thank you fellow MWers for posting, informing, asking questions, welcoming everyone with open arms, and bringing Disney magic to everyone around the world!
Now I'm a week from turning 20 but all I keep thinking about is my 4 year MouseWait anniversary.
With all my life changes, friends and family passing, graduating from high school, going to college, 3 annual passes and so so much more MouseWait was always there. I knew that I had this little app right in my pocket and I could escape anytime I wanted to. So thank you for letting me ask questions, live vicariously through you, for supporting me, making me laugh and giving me the best 4 years. I love you MouseWait.

unFORECAST for the week of June 29, 2015
Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM
