#MWStory - okay, sorry for the long post but it's a doozy. Today is my one year MW anniversary. To say I had a rocky start would be, well,… an understatement. I came into the community, did not read the rules, and I'm sure (well, I know I'm sure)...ticked some people off. The reason I joined the community was because it was a very, very, very bad day at work, and I was looking for something to bring some joy into my life. I just encountered earlier that day and accident that claimed the life of a mother and her two young children. I found MouseWait and thought "hey this is great, I love Disneyland and all things Disney." I saw people posting pictures and thought again, "this is great,... I'll post some of my drawings." Well... that wasn't a good idea, I got scolded, and I got bitter. But in the darkness that I was heading towards, some MouseWait members stepped up to the plate, talk me down from the ledge, and help me to see the error of my ways. I'm eternally grateful to people like HMACIF, PikaRich, MrsSchnooks, secretagentangel, and many more for encouraging me to stay. It then became my goal to become a productive member of this community and to give back as much as I could. In the past year, I have learned that this is not just a place to come and talk about Disney,… It's a place where we open our hearts, our souls, and our lives to complete strangers and share a love of our neighbor. This is been one of my best years since finding this community, and I thank you so very much for allowing me to part of your lives, and for you to be a part of mine. Here's to every minute, every hour, every day, and every year that I get to spend in this community going forward. You all are in my hearts forever!

Aww! That made me tear up. How sweet. Those were rough days. But now the Lounge is a MUCH better place. It's happier and healthier. Thanks for all you contribute and, I have said to you many times before... Glad you stuck it out. Happy one year!! *hands you a *™ - misschurro...  7116.7 #15 1:55PM
Thank you for the endless supply of 's, and the endless supply of your kindness!   - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 7:35PM
I'm so pleased to read these post! The reason being I remember those days and it was tough, I was struggling to have people see you don't have to be mean to help someone in the lounge. Your story truly did bring a tear to my eyes because it shows how much the lounge has changed and I'm so grateful for it because you don't truly know who's behind that screen name and what they are experiencing and what they need from this community. Especially grateful we have someone like you in here. Your kindness is evident and you're a true friend to everyone! Happy anniversary!! So glad you've stuck it out and met amazing friends  - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 4:28PM
Thank you for those very kind words!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 11:04PM
Thanks for sharing, David. I'm glad you decided to stay, and I am equally grateful to the people who showed kindness to you.  - Admin 1:19PM

David, my dear friend, I thank God for people like you that give so selflessly of themselves. You are amazing. I'm so glad you stayed, actually, that many of us stayed!!! You are so positive and caring and helpful to this community. You also have the craziest sense of humor that makes me wake up the neighborhood when I start laughing at your comments. You are such a great friend and I am truly blessed to have you in my life. Congratulations on your MWaversary!  - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.3 #43 9:59AM
awww give him a mega hug when u see him - pikarich  5748.2 #22 10:02AM
I can't wait to meet you in person, get a serial hug... And hear you laugh!!!   - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 12:27PM
Happy first ( Drawwait) anniversary David!!  Best thing about that night is that people were pretty welcoming, but lots of us said to check out the rules and we didn't know how stressed you were and then you wigged out on us.  Once we were all on the same page, it was beautiful.  I'm glad you've hung around and continued to post and make friends.  I hope mw will continue to provide you with a small escape when your work gets crazy to process.  FTR, I really think you should post a drawing for today, you are very talented!! - Linzee  1340.2 #135 4:49PM
Yes! Post a drawing! - dumbbunny  627.2 #333 5:57PM
Imma scared to post one! 😳😁😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 6:33PM
That is great. We all work so hard out there and one of the best parts of Disneyland is it gives us that break from the " rat race" and allows us to ke loose and have fun 😀. Mousewait is the connection that allows us the live views of the park and stories from fellow MWers enjoying while we can't.  For me , living way way out on Long Island it is a real great way to stay connected. Great post Dave !! - polo33  80.2 #4009 7:51PM
I think you're a very sweet and genuine person @DisneyDavidEMT! It comes across in all your post and comments. I too had a horrible start and still trying to connect with people. This gives me hope to keep pushing through and stay on! Thanks for all that you do! Have a magical day! - BriarBeauty  121.7 #3232 7:52PM
Disney and MW are about hope, magic and the ability to overcome an obstacle.... You've got me on your side!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 9:03PM
Thank for letting us all in on a beautiful story!!!!  And thank you for sticking around!   - cmogo  74.4 #4117 7:55PM
Happy Anniversary @DisneyDavidEMT ... Thanks for sharing your story ... Thank you too for the job you do! Blessings! - pamntink  54.2 #4697 8:37PM
Congrats on your one year MW Anniversary✨David! ❤love your story!!! Like many of you I'm sure I too am so thankful for this happy place! It comforts me in a way that only all of you can understand & appreciate! I know my MW story someday will be a emotional one. Thank you for being you! So glad you stuck with us! - MinnieMyLove  207.5 #1941 9:19PM
Made me cry.  It seems that beneath our happy Disney exteriors lies all sorts of real life issues...and isn't it awesome that MW brings us all together and makes life fun!  I hope I get to meet you someday! - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 12:40AM
so happy you stayed! - OhanaPhoto  6283.3 #20 9:25AM

Happy Mousewaitversary to you! I recall some of that going down last year back when I was a reader only due to junk phone that wouldn't post! Glad you found kind MWers to support you! Its wonderful to know that MW luv gets spread through you to the people you help as an EMT!  That's what its all about & Mr. Disney would be proud! - JediCOTA  93.4 #3743 10:12AM
Thank you! There is definitely lot of love here!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 7:43PM
Happy Anniversary!  I had a post all written out then it went poof! EMTs are among my favorite people in the world. While in their day jobs our EMTs at the arena deal with what you do, at the arena they don't (for the most part a TON of ETOHs at concerts!), so I have the chance to really get to know them and I hope I get to meet you sometime! You are an incredible person!  - ythdudette  1511.8 #114 10:23AM

I joined about a week before you and I remember your firsts posts. My story is kind of the opposite. I posted some bad posts on purpose just to cause a ruckus, but then everyone's comments really cracked me up, I wasn't expecting everyone (most everyone) to have a sense of humor. That's what kept me coming back and then later I realized there was awesome people like you that have a sense of humor AND a kind heart. Now you guy are stuck  with me  - phillip..  1357.1 #132 10:59AM
Such a trouble-maker! 😂😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 7:45PM
That is a great story!!! I look forward to getting to know you! - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #339 11:00AM

Thank you for sharing, glad you are here and stuck around! Thanks for giving me some tips too in the past!  - ACSantos  146.3 #2822 11:22AM
Thanks for sharing your touching MW story.  You have been a wonderful addition.  Happy MW Anniversary!  - snowwannab  759.0 #256 11:34AM
This is such a sweet story! I think the best part of MW is the connections you make and the feeling of family that you just can't get from other apps. Even though I haven't met a single MWer face to face, I feel like I know some of you better than I know people that I see every day! - lassengirl  159.9 #2601 11:37AM
I remember the beginning. I never felt there was a problem. Sooo glad you stayed. You make this app a great place to be.  - sewedna  578.9 #361 11:43AM
😍😍👏👏awww!! This is your once a month tear jerker...no more until November 😁Happy Anniversary!! I'm sorry you had such a rough start..I completely missed what was going on during that time, because I had to step back from MW after a very painful situation with another person. I'm so glad that you were able to jump back in so quickly (it took me almost a year to come back). You are such an inspiration, and you always always so kind and positive. I know what you deal with at work, and I love that you have a way to decompress 😃I how to meet you and your beautiful wife in person!! Hugs😀 - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1440.6 #121 11:46AM
I'm trying to cut back!  😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 12:29PM
Thanks for sharing your story...glad you stuck around to make lifelong memories and friends. Happy MW Anniversary! 🎉🎉 - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #612 11:57AM
That's a very nice story.  And I continue to make mistakes here, but everyone seems perfectly wonderful (and forgiving).  Happy anniversary! - Cyette  6.1 #15972 1:01PM
So glad you stuck it out! And this really has nothing to do with your post but as a fellow mesical professional I want to say you rock. I could NEVER do what you do. 👍👍👍👍 - lostgirl7988  697.8 #283 1:07PM
I'm nothing special...I just do my job.  But I feel special to be part of this community. - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 1:12PM
I beg to differ sir. I couldn't even handle urgent care. I work at a nice calm endocrinologist where the scariest thing is low blood sugar. I hope to meet you one day! - lostgirl7988  697.8 #283 1:15PM
******SaWeet  story, and happy that you stayed☺ Happy Mouse Waitversary!😃 - MadameLeota  4423.1 #33 1:17PM
Your story was so nice. I'm glad you stayed because you are an awesome part of this community. - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #660 1:22PM
Glad you stuck around!...Now if you would go to DL more so we can see you once in a while!   - JollyRoger5  3907.2 #39 1:25PM
I just renewed my pass this last Sunday!  You'll see me more now!  😉 - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 2:43PM
I am so grateful for you and all the EMT's and Paramedics out there. No matter the time or place, you guys are our 24 hour safety net.  Always ready to help our families in our times of need. You are so caring not only with our MW family but with our community.  Thank you @DisneyDavidEMT  People like you make this world a better place! - Witchie77  377.5 #613 1:43PM
Oh Happy MW Anniversary!! - Witchie77  377.5 #613 1:44PM
It's weird, but I remember that exact day, as I was losing my Dad, and one of the nurses told me about this Disney site that I might really like, kinda a Disney addict site to share with like minded people.  So I went to check it out, and thankfully I read the rules first, so when I saw your beautiful drawings, and the following admonishments you got, I was a little unsure if this was the right place for me.  I am so glad that I did give it time, and I have been dying to meet any of you guys ever since.  I am actually going to be at the Birthday event, so hope to meet some of you then, can't wait!!! - ValsLaughingPlace  21.3 #7289 1:45PM
Thank you for sharing your story @DisneyDavidEMT you are an amazing example of how a MWer should be for newer MWers like myself  - spaceranger916  383.1 #598 2:02PM
It's my privelege to be here! - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 2:44PM

Way to hang in there David! I bet you'd get a different response to your pics now. Thanks for you quality posts and Happy MW anniversary.  - NascarDave  323.6 #807 6:37PM
Well, I'm gonna test that theory here shortly!  😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 7:40PM
I read your story earlier and really wanted to respond... but first I wanted to scroll way back and see the pictures - then I got super busy at work... anyway, #1, your drawings are amazing. I can barely do a stick figure, #2, you were jumped on and you were so great in your responses, #3 I am so glad you stayed around - your posts are great, your comments have, more than once, made me laugh super hard.. #4, not sure if I will ever have the opportunity to meet you in person but I love having you on MW and IG.  Thanks for your story... "see" ya later.  - CallMeFlower  424.0 #533 6:47PM
Happy mwversary! Seriously, one of the pics in your collage should've been a drawing 😜 - princessb5  190.9 #2142 6:49PM
Such a wonderful MW story, happy anniversary! - PrincessLeia  312.7 #865 6:59PM
You can't write a story like this & not expect me to scroll to the beginning of your profile to check out your drawings & they look great. I to  EMTs & all though you think you're just doing your job it is well more then that to some of us. I'm glad you stuck around & I know that you really care about others & that is what this site should be about. Thanks for sharing your story & letting us be a part of your adventures.  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2000.5 #85 7:07PM
Thank you for being a great friend on here.... And of course for my !   - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 7:41PM
I have enjoyed what you add to MW! Happy MWversary! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #846 7:21PM
so sorry I did not see this sooner, I just want you to know it was great finally meeting you and I am glad we all got to find our happy place here on MW.  You are a wonderful person, and a wonderful contributor to this community.  I believe God made special people to be the first responders, it is in your "gut" to help others.  and even though I am posting 2 months later on this, once again last night on your own time you stopped to help accident victims.  I get why you did that though many just drove by without  thinking hey, maybe I could help.  so Congrats on one year but also congrats on keeping your heart open to helping others always.  see you real soon!!!  and lots of love!!!!:D  (heart sticker, heart sticker) - secretagentangel  5754.2 #21 1:28PM
Hi David, my name is Jeremy Szuder. I've been here for over two years and the first year was really hard and intense, I can understand too! I don't remember the exact day I started, but your post gave me pause to contemplate. Congrats on your stay, perhaps we shall meet in the parks sometime soon. Cheers! P.s., I think the lounge is wonderful, warm, and very welcoming these days... Thanks to ALL of you guys! - littleoysterz  242.3 #1481 1:52PM

Here are the latest Disneyland Real-Time Land posts. If you're at the Park, please post in Disneyland Real-Time Land, thanks for posting live pics!

Well it was #live when I was trying to upload it from Paint the Night. We got a table at the Plaza Inn and had a great view, and as an added perk they had patio warmers turned on so we were nice and cozy with great food and a perfect (uncrowded) view! - jalensmommy

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 the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. 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. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127123 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  5754.2 #21 8:10PM

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 #323 5:39PM
