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  10295.3 #8 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 #271 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  1025.4 #190 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  10295.3 #8 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  880.6 #211 8:55PM
Thank you! Β Just hate that last year we had to spend $8k on legal fees, that could have gone elsewhere... - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 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  7310.8 #12 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  1025.4 #190 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 #220 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 #320 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  1025.4 #190 10:25PM
Yay Jack! Glad to hear things are going well for him in school. Cute Sheriff Woody bear.  - KermitFan13  658.1 #311 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  412.0 #550 7:51PM
Wonderful news, thanks for sharing! - ShariRenee  9623.2 #9 7:52PM
Way to go Jack!!!  That is exceptional news!  IEPs can be stressful to say the least.   - TiggersAndTinks  175.3 #2345 7:53PM
Very happy for you and your son! And that's a really cute little bear! - debbiev  1277.8 #140 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  2033.3 #82 7:59PM
Awesome news, great reasons to celebrate! :) - piratelife4me  1069.3 #179 8:03PM
Great news! It must be very difficult but he's lucky to have good parents that support him!!! - goofydad909  1992.3 #85 8:04PM
I'm lucky to have him and his sister in my life! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 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  10295.3 #8 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  1025.4 #190 8:29PM
Im happy to to hear this good news. One more thing to celebrate when you come. That bear is so cute.  - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  965.0 #197 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  1675.4 #105 8:35PM
Will do!  Give your daughter a hug from us! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 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  1437.4 #120 8:36PM

That's wonderful news! Yay for Jack!  - Geekery  409.4 #557 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 #510 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  1025.4 #190 9:01PM
I looked on their website and it shows nothing. Did you get this one from down town disney? - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #510 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  1025.4 #190 10:19PM
Such awesome news! Yay, Jack!!!  - ythdudette  1511.8 #114 8:55PM
This post made me smile!!!!! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1299.1 #137 9:04PM
Thanks, HMF for all the goodies you've sent our children! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 9:07PM
Great news! So excited for Jack's advancements! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  468.6 #476 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  682.6 #297 9:06PM
Yes it is!   - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 9:09PM
How exciting.... - MinnieMyLove  207.5 #1940 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  171.4 #2416 9:10PM
well done,  and the bear is so very cute !! - Sleepingbeautysmom  325.1 #795 9:16PM
That is such good news!! Yay! You deserve a trip to Disneyland! 😊😊😊 - misschurro  7092.9 #15 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  1437.4 #120 9:32PM
Ohhh! Believe you me.. i would LOVE that!!! Heehee - misschurro  7092.9 #15 9:33PM
If I hit the lottery😁 I'll send someone to pic you up! - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1437.4 #120 9:45PM
Sounds great! I'll start packing!! - misschurro  7092.9 #15 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  1437.4 #120 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 #5292 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  1025.4 #190 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  1049.7 #182 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  1025.4 #190 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 #373 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 #220 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  1025.4 #190 9:38AM
Fantastic news!!!!  - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.0 #43 12:11AM
Awesome!  Thanks for sharing! - drskookie  378.9 #606 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  159.9 #2600 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  1025.4 #190 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 #329 10:18PM
Thank you, were looking forward to our trip! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 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 #3881 10:56PM
Thank you very much! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 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 April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. 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 Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM



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 #322 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7404 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 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  175.3 #2345 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.6 #1179 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17907 3:45PM
Saturday's are less busy - DarthFairy  471.9 #468 2:18PM

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  0.0 #127126 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. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5590.2 #23 8:10PM
