Paging all of my MW family! We had Jack's annual IEP (individual educational program) meeting today! All went well for the first time in nearly 2 years! No attorneys were involved for the first time in a year! Money saved will be spent at the parks I'm sure during our trip during Veterans' Day weekend! His new teacher, new aide and new therapies are showing results for him succeeding in general education classes while living with high functioning autism. Jack got this bear at build-a-bear, dressed him up like Woody from Toy Story! Please notice the bear's paws...they have the autism awareness puzzle piece, Jack knows the symbol and picked this bear all by himself! Sorry for the long post, just so happy for him!

It is so nice to hear good news at an iep. My son's iep's were so stressful and even with a lawyer it amazed me how much folks were inconvenienced with my son's autism. The best iep was the last one when I highlighted all the parents rights/laws they were breaking and enrolled in private home school. Never been happier and jimmy improved 3 grade levels in one year. Wow was I stupid for waiting so long to change - Plumiegirl  10383.3 #9 8:04PM
I always have problems with my son's iep. They put him in regular classes and he's doing horrible. I keep telling them to change him back to his RSP classes but they are not listening to me. I was also considering home school but I work full time 😐 - nicealex77  727.6 #291 8:11PM
I'm glad Jimmy made that jump!  I might do that if/when the time comes.  So far Jack is a grade ahead in math and 2 ahead in reading, it's just the social.  Last year his teacher snuck a union rep in the IEP meeting saying she was a specialist when she was not...that's when we got an attorney who specializes in these matters.  The teacher last year said it was too much work to deal with Jack and wanted to just send him to a different school that has a special day class...guess she didn't realize Mrs.Frog and I each have more degrees than her and we aren't afraid of anything when it comes to our children.  She just didn't want to be bothered by him. - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 8:13PM
My mom is retired but a credentialed teacher, I really lucked out on this. I have taken care of her with whatever she needs. - Plumiegirl  10383.3 #9 8:15PM
This is wonderful news!  Jack is so fortunate to have two such loving and devoted parents. Well done all the way around.  - DisneyGrandma  882.7 #223 8:55PM
Thank you! Β Just hate that last year we had to spend $8k on legal fees, that could have gone elsewhere... - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:06PM
I am so glad it is going well for your son! As a teacher I'm really sad to hear about all the problems you and others have with the IEP process and teachers that didn't want to work with you and listen to you. It really needs to be a cooperative process with the same goal in mind... The best interest of the child! - CobbPR  7314.7 #16 9:50PM
I completely agree!  We could let Jack skip a grade academically, but he needs to learn social skills with those his own age... - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:58PM
Very well said! I have the Opportunity to sit on both sides of the table when it comes to IEP and rest of the Special Education process. It is not easy process, for parents, specialists or educators. When the needs of the child remain the focus for all parties and drives the process - then the likelihood for success and good outcomes increases tremendously! - DreadPiratesRogers  852.9 #232 12:01AM
On the flip side, what if you were a regular ed teacher with 30+ students, all equally deserving of your attention?  Yes, accommodations must be made in order to mainstream students with special needs, but sometimes the least restrictive environment is simply not a classroom that is already bursting at the seams.   - bluefairy  643.8 #335 10:14PM
I would agree with that, but that was not the case.  The class sizes are 24 students. Jack has a one on one aide.   The other teacher took him and he did well, the original teacher wanted him sent to a different school in a special day class.  We wanted the least restrictive environment and Jack's RSP agreed with us.  This teacher snuck in her union rep under false pretenses and we did file a protest against her and it was accepted by the school district's attorney. - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 10:25PM
Yay Jack! Glad to hear things are going well for him in school. Cute Sheriff Woody bear.  - KermitFan13  658.1 #327 7:50PM
Wow that is great!! Yes IEP's can at times be stressful. I'm so glad that the school is fulfilling their duties and your son is improving because everyone is working together. Congrats for Jack in such an impressive accomplishment. - BellesLibrary  419.8 #567 7:51PM
Wonderful news, thanks for sharing! - ShariRenee  11396.4 #8 7:52PM
Way to go Jack!!!  That is exceptional news!  IEPs can be stressful to say the least.   - TiggersAndTinks  183.5 #2291 7:53PM
Very happy for you and your son! And that's a really cute little bear! - debbiev  1476.9 #126 7:55PM
Wonderful to hear that Jack is excelling! I know my cousin gets super stressed with the IEP for her daughter so I am glad it went well. - missmimi90  2034.3 #87 7:59PM
Awesome news, great reasons to celebrate! :) - piratelife4me  1069.4 #189 8:03PM
Great news! It must be very difficult but he's lucky to have good parents that support him!!! - goofydad909  1999.8 #91 8:04PM
I'm lucky to have him and his sister in my life! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 8:22PM
The biggest issue is I got the lawyer, had the iep exactly like I wanted but they put the same folks that could not change, were not creative, and were so negative. Home school allowed me to enriched his learning environment so much more with less stress. - Plumiegirl  10383.3 #9 8:19PM
My son's school contacted the school district's lawyers...turns out the attorney they sent served in Iraq with the 1st Air Cav, he knows who I am and who I served with...this got a lot done in our favor really quickly.  What can I say, don't make an EOD dive officer angry...nobody likes to see a frogman angry. - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 8:29PM
Im happy to to hear this good news. One more thing to celebrate when you come. That bear is so cute.  - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  978.2 #207 8:34PM
My mini and I are always thinking of him and your family. Glad to read this and feel the happiness radiate from it. Tell Jack, he made a great bear!! - LuvsTigger  1675.8 #109 8:35PM
Will do!  Give your daughter a hug from us! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 8:44PM
πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰whooo hooo!!! Way to go JackπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ your mama and papa sure are looking out for you😍. You are going to be on top of the world when you grow upπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1518.1 #123 8:36PM

We will be there you, Kenedy and Bleyn! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 8:45PM
Love hearing positive news. Hope Jack has a wonderful school year. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2300.6 #73 8:43PM
That's wonderful news! Yay for Jack!  - Geekery  409.4 #581 8:51PM
Yay Jack. Such awesome news. Where did you get his build a bear from? I would absolutely love to order one for my best friends autistic son.  - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #534 8:53PM
The Build-a-Bear workshop started carrying them last April for Autism Awareness. Some stores carry them but you can order it off their website and have it shipped to a store near you to assemble there... - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:01PM
I looked on their website and it shows nothing. Did you get this one from down town disney? - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #534 10:08PM
I know that the Build-a-Bear Workshop in both Hillsdale and Valley Fair Shopping Centers can order them as of last Thursday... - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 10:19PM
Such awesome news! Yay, Jack!!!  - ythdudette  1527.5 #121 8:55PM
This post made me smile!!!!! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1335.6 #143 9:04PM
Thanks, HMF for all the goodies you've sent our children! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:07PM
Great news! So excited for Jack's advancements! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  473.0 #488 9:04PM
That's great news!! I fought for years for my Son's IEP. It's a hard battle but one worth fighting for!! Time for some Disney Magic to celebrate!! - WhatTiggersDoBest  687.4 #312 9:06PM
Yes it is!   - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:09PM
How exciting.... - MinnieMyLove  246.7 #1465 9:08PM
Good job Jack. Hope he continues to improve. One of my friends is an aide and works with children with autism daily. She says the most frustrating thing is some teachers who will not change. Luckily she has had a couple of great ones recently. - warchanted  174.9 #2399 9:10PM
well done,  and the bear is so very cute !! - Sleepingbeautysmom  334.7 #773 9:16PM
That is such good news!! Yay! You deserve a trip to Disneyland! 😊😊😊 - misschurro  7743.2 #14 9:16PM
Agreed!!! He's going to be there at the same time as we are.. I think you need a mini trip before the one you have planned😁 - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1518.1 #123 9:32PM
Ohhh! Believe you me.. i would LOVE that!!! Heehee - misschurro  7743.2 #14 9:33PM
If I hit the lottery😁 I'll send someone to pic you up! - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1518.1 #123 9:45PM
Sounds great! I'll start packing!! - misschurro  7743.2 #14 9:48PM
I know! After I won Atora's super ariel RAK I got all cocky and went out and bought lottery tickets.. I figured if I was lucky enough to win that super awesome RAK, well then the lottery must be nextπŸ€πŸ€ I'll keep trying😁 - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1518.1 #123 9:52PM
Congrats on the successful IEP. I work with an autistic student and always feel so bad when his mom has to bring in the attorney to his meetings. Love the bear, I have one too. - Mommadisneyfan  40.7 #5413 9:17PM
Everyone said it was the "best" interest of the student but in our case last year the teacher did not want to do one thing out of her norm nor anything more than what the union said she was required to do... - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:56PM
Great to hear he got great results! Can't wait to meet him and the rest of the family during Veteran's Day weekend! Thanks for the HJ sticker also! - SpiritOfAdventure  1073.7 #187 9:20PM
No worries, we'll see you then!  It was funny when the school district's attorney showed up at the second IEP meeting last year...he was a JAG officer for 1st Air Cav and knew of me from comments I had made at a RoE briefing... - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:47PM
That's great news! I seem to recall my brother having IEP meeting though I am sure his with my parents weren't anything stressful. That's great that he has a teacher and workers that are able to help him succeed!  - starwarsmamma  561.4 #393 9:24PM
Best wishes for a successful school year for Jack!  So glad that you had a good IEP meeting and managed a good outcome without the stress and expense of needing legal counsel. - DreadPiratesRogers  852.9 #232 12:08AM
Jack is such a smart boy, very observant. He started watching The Big Bang Theory and Sheldon is his favorite character. I asked him why and he told me because they like the same things. - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:38AM
Fantastic news!!!!  - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 12:11AM
Awesome!  Thanks for sharing! - drskookie  378.9 #635 12:49AM
As a mom who has attended IEPs for autistic kids, I know how stressful going ton those annual meetings can be. It's great news that he is doing well and that mainstreaming is an option for him. It should be the goal of any student with an IEP to reach that goal if possible because mainstreaming offers social skills that a special day class just can't. So happy for you guys!! - lassengirl  166.5 #2545 12:53AM
We want Jack to be treated no differently than any other child in the class.  Yes he needs an aide but that us to keep him on task.  His own teacher said if you give him a math test that takes the class 39 mins that he finishes it in 5 mins (all correct).  She has him read to other members of his class.  We were told that academically he could easily skip a grade but socially we are keeping him with his peers. - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 9:43AM
One thing I know is you, the parent has to fight for the child. I am so happy for you and your son. Good luck at the park.  - Midasgold  633.3 #345 10:18PM
Thank you, were looking forward to our trip! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 6:44PM
So glad to hear all went well!! My son has Asperger's and we had our share of IEP's when he was in elementary school, but we were lucky and never had any issues.  My best friend's husband is an attorney specializing in special education suits and tells us of some of the horror stories he's heard. I hope that this school year will be a great one for your son!! 😊 - nerdgirl  86.0 #3954 10:56PM
Thank you very much! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 11:07PM

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  643.7 #336 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7592 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #523 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  183.5 #2291 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
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 Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8067.2 #11 1:41PM

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.2 #169 7:44PM
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
