#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 *™ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5460.8 #17 1:55PM
Thank you for the endless supply of 's, and the endless supply of your kindness!   - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 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  4703.7 #22 4:28PM
Thank you for those very kind words!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 11:04PM

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!  - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:59AM
awww give him a mega hug when u see him - pikarich  4315.3 #27 10:02AM
I can't wait to meet you in person, get a serial hug... And hear you laugh!!!   - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 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  1095.1 #154 4:49PM
Yes! Post a drawing! - dumbbunny  626.9 #300 5:57PM
Imma scared to post one! 😳😁😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 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  65.5 #4113 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  117.8 #3178 7:52PM
Disney and MW are about hope, magic and the ability to overcome an obstacle.... You've got me on your side!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 9:03PM
Thank for letting us all in on a beautiful story!!!!  And thank you for sticking around!   - cmogo  74.4 #3908 7:55PM

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  190.4 #2039 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  645.0 #289 12:40AM
so happy you stayed! - OhanaPhoto  3714.1 #34 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  69.9 #4012 10:12AM
Thank you! There is definitely lot of love here!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 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  1297.4 #119 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  - philliprocks  1167.6 #139 10:59AM
Such a trouble-maker! 😂😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 7:45PM
That is a great story!!! I look forward to getting to know you! - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #304 11:00AM

Thank you for sharing, glad you are here and stuck around! Thanks for giving me some tips too in the past!  - ACSantos  125.9 #3010 11:22AM
Thanks for sharing your touching MW story.  You have been a wonderful addition.  Happy MW Anniversary!  - snowwannab  733.6 #239 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  151.9 #2608 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  547.8 #351 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  1256.9 #124 11:46AM
I'm trying to cut back!  😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 12:29PM
Thanks for sharing your story...glad you stuck around to make lifelong memories and friends. Happy MW Anniversary! 🎉🎉 - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #561 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 #14518 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 #258 1:07PM
I'm nothing special...I just do my job.  But I feel special to be part of this community. - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 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 #258 1:15PM
******SaWeet  story, and happy that you stayed☺ Happy Mouse Waitversary!😃 - MadameLeota  3081.4 #41 1:17PM

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  350.5 #626 1:43PM
Oh Happy MW Anniversary!! - Witchie77  350.5 #626 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  20.5 #6753 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  342.8 #654 2:02PM

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  308.9 #805 6:37PM
Well, I'm gonna test that theory here shortly!  😂😂😂 - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 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  423.1 #481 6:47PM

Such a wonderful MW story, happy anniversary! - PrincessLeia  306.6 #822 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  1628.2 #96 7:07PM
Thank you for being a great friend on here.... And of course for my !   - DisneyDavidEMT  2306.7 #56 7:41PM
I have enjoyed what you add to MW! Happy MWversary! - mrscttlemstr  308.7 #808 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  1947.0 #74 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 #1385 1:52PM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here

And don't forget about Food! Check out our real-time Food blog to see what's new at the Resort. POST YOUR IDEAS BELOW and they could make the weekly top 5!

Going to be in the park Dec. 29-Jan. 2. We've always been during the Summer and Spring so this will be our very first time there during the Holiday Season. What is the weather there like during Winter, what should Hubby and I be packing and what should I be packing for my two boys ages 8 and 9? I know the park is usually packed during the Holidays (from what I have read), would we still be able to park hop (we bought 5 days park hoppers) if we get our hands stamped? TIA. =) - MaryinVancouver888  5.3 #16532 4:17AM

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 week of July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



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  488.4 #403 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7117 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  383.0 #551 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  160.7 #2482 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1419 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4703.7 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.3 #10608 9:33AM
