 Best Post of the Day 11-6-13
There is one thing that has been constant in mylife amd always will be and that is Disneyland and Disney as a whole. I grew up Disney, I had family who worked there, I worked there and I have met a lof of my best friends on the earth since I was a little kid because of the mouse. I've fallen in love, I've lost love, I've watched myself grow, watch my friends kids grow, I've witnessed life long friends meet there, new loves form there, and spent time there giriving the lost of a love one on a few occasions. The memories that the parks have given me are something that I will always cherish since a lot of what has happend since I was born has happend at the parks or had something to do with it. Its truly a magical place and it has not and never will lose its magic with me and I cant wait to create new memories until the day I die there....Here is a little vid I have posted a few times but is a great reminder to me of how special this Kingdom is...

Looooove this all, and I needed this tonight. Thanks for posting this and the video. 😊❀️ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #35 12:32AM
Wow. If I hadn't gone to sleep at 7:30 last night, I would've commented then. I want to thank you, Dave, for re-igniting my passion for Disney and Disneyland..,growing up in a Disney family with so much history that I'm just now beginning to cherish and appreciate...when I walk into the parks I'm transported to the happiest times in my life and feel like my grandpa is always there watching over me. It's been amazing meeting others as passionate and full of life as MWers...I know some of you will be lifelong friends and I wouldn't trade that for the world!!!! Thanks so much for posting. 😊 - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 8:17AM

Yeah, it was a rough week 😁 - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 12:14PM
tell me about it - Dave   13820.5 #4 12:44PM
I still love that video. Okay, so there were a few people and posts that got me hooked on this app before I made an account. The first was Dahulagirl and the other was a video of you dancing in DL (yeah lame, but it was funny). You both radiated fun and happiness and had so much love for the parks, I got hooked like a fish who just found a fat worm. Ugh I'm crying now dammit. You have inspired many of us and I believe your history, passion and admiration for Disneyland trickles down to all of us. You've been pretty blessed being able to grow up around the magic and have come away with some pretty amazing memories and friends...with plenty of room for more, thank you for letting us be a part of it all. - Linzee  1402.0 #138 1:35PM
:: hands you tissues:: - dumbbunny  627.6 #348 2:22PM
Well said Linz! 😘 - TinkerSchelle  2073.4 #84 8:39PM
Made me cry; that was really heart-felt and adding this song/video is the cherry on top! Thanks ;) Here's to a life full of Disneyland memories. Thanks for reminding us why the magic lives on, and always will. - TinkerSchelle  2073.4 #84 12:21AM
glad to see you here, was just asking Molly about you recently.  - Dave   13820.5 #4 12:25AM
Sorry-I took a few to get back on here after going to wash my teary face and blow my nose after that video! It is like one of my favorite ever-watched back in the heart of raising my boys with Disneyland in their hearts!!!!I know they will never have Disneyland imprinted on their lives like you have, but even a fraction of that is life-changing for us! How fortunate you and your family are-and thank you so much for sharing what you've experienced and is part of your journey with all of us who haven't had the same privileges---it really enriches the experiences we DO have!Sorry I'm so sappy right now-just feeling emotional, sentimental and grateful! 😘 - TinkerSchelle  2073.4 #84 12:34AM
And glad to see you too! I miss all of you guys! I even bumped you a little while back for old times sake!  Just booked a trip down Jan 2nd-I'll text Molly and see her holiday plans! - TinkerSchelle  2073.4 #84 12:38AM
TINKERSCHELLE!!! - MEHlanie_Mouse  1117.3 #176 8:17AM
Hi sweetie!!!! How many Fantasmics have I missed???? - TinkerSchelle  2073.4 #84 10:14AM
I have the same feeling for DL. I don't come from a Disney Family but I remember my first visit! My 13th Birthday! My Senior Year in HS! Grad Night! Our subsequent visits from Washington! Our move to SOCA and our APs starting from 1993! When I retire I will go to work for DL and start my second career! - Boundin  812.3 #245 12:29AM
Thank You Dave. - friendlymouse  728.0 #290 12:33AM
Dave, you have shared many wonderful moments here and to see the amazing memories you have help others experience is Magical. Growing up Disney has made you a great person and some day I hope to at least say Hi. Thank you for all that you share with all of us!  - yellowtonka  244.7 #1486 10:11AM

Why'd you want to go and make me cry for?  Yes. I remember when. I remember the Flying Saucers. I remember the People Mover. I remember the Skyway, the Country Bear jamboree, America Sings.  I remember Walt talking to us on Sunday nights to introduce the night's episode of the Wonderful World of Disney.  And none of that means a thing without the friends and family that we shared it all with!  Nobody knew how to bring together families and create memories the way Walt Disney did!  I grew up in NorCal, but had lots of family in SoCal, so we went down several times a year to visit relatives, and even though money was tight, we never skipped a trip to Disneyland as part of those visits!  So many wonderful memories were created back then, and I hope that my girls feel even a small part of that magic in their lives today.  Thank you, Dave. Love this video! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #39 11:38AM
You mushy banana. Your silly side cracks me up and your sentimental side is sweet. Thank you for sharing your Disney passion with those of us too far away. 😊 - Darlingwendi  1228.1 #155 12:24PM
thanks, I'm an open book and been sometimes my emotions get the best of me - Dave   13820.5 #4 12:48PM
Thanks for sharing Dave, you are truly blessed to have Disney in your heart for your whole life and to be so close to the magic. I work in a environment of "manly men" and belong to social groups of "manly men". We share camaraderie and brotherhood but none of them understand my love of Disney, in fact is often the butt of jokes. Β That doesn't bother me though, I relish in the fact that I am man enough to embrace my inner child, believe in the magic and be transported to other lands. Β I feel sorry that they are unable to do the same and I'm glad that I've found others to share our love of Disney with. Β Thanks for helping remind us why. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #181 1:12PM
A real man is not afraid of his Disney side!  πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ You, sir, are a real man! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #39 1:16PM
Great post. You know I've been a few times to the parks before kids with just my wife and I and had a great time. But Disney changed my life when I saw how my kids reacted to a surprise trip last year for my daughters birthday. It was so amAzing to see it all again through their eyes. Now I'm not only hooked,and counting the days till next December, our next trip but I'm going back to school to finish my degree and hope to work for this fabulous company in the near future. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts. I'm sure most all of us can relate in many ways.  - Danierob  87.3 #3913 1:47PM
This is beautiful. You've expressed just how so many of us feel. Bless you and your Disney heart.  - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  473.0 #488 8:38PM
I wish they would bring back The Wonderful World Of Disney...as a child I remember once the show was over it was time for bed but I went to sleep a happy child dreaming of Disney! - mrscttlemstr  317.2 #870 8:43PM
This times 100 - Bo22  394.4 #606 9:08PM
The world would be a better place with it back in it! Can you imaging how much our kids would appreciate watching it? It would be like a history lesson in Disney! 😊It gives me warm thoughts... - mrscttlemstr  317.2 #870 9:20PM
Whoa. Are we getting a "After 1901 tipsy feelings" post? j/k...Thanks for sharing how much DL means to you. I'm glad to have met you and learned new DL history from you that day - SpiritOfAdventure  1071.0 #186 12:40AM
Im very open with my feelings and always will be - Dave   13820.5 #4 12:49AM
Many feels. I don't have the extended family history that you do but Disneyland has been a source of joy for me. I am forever grateful that I'm blessed enough to experience it as often as I have in the last two years. - missmimi90  2034.3 #86 12:47AM
So great. So many things I have learned of Disney from you. Pretty great how you are keeping that Disney love going that your family showed you.  - RickChavez  3672.1 #45 12:55AM
Thank you for that!  Brought back so many memories!  Loved the music too.  One of my favs. - Sandy  245.8 #1470 1:38AM

That made my morning a little brighter. Thanks so much. - kskating  690.8 #310 4:48AM
Thank you Dave!  That was beautiful,  and the vintage parts brought back lots of memories.  I have a rich Disney history too, that one day I will share.  It's wonderful that the magic continues for us all, and has been a part of every aspect of your life. - snowwannab  759.0 #273 6:01AM
Very heartfelt. Thanks for posting! - goofygal  12259.0 #7 6:04AM
I love the heart felt sentiment. Well said..... - LaPearleNoir  2566.5 #61 6:25AM
Ok had to watch the video on mute or I would cry😒 I too can't imagine what life would be like without the Mouse! Like you said it's a special place for so many in so many different ways! So much history and wonderful memories✨Thank You for the post! - MinnieMyLove  235.2 #1610 6:36AM
What a beautiful post and a wonderful video! You so perfectly put into words how many of us feel about Disneyland, thank-you I needed this today.  - adisneyfamily  1004.0 #203 7:39AM
Great post Dave! I share your sentiments entirely! Sounds like my life too. My 17 yr old told me DL holds a special place in his heart because we've been so much as a family. I used to go there and ride all the rides when I was pregnant with each of my five kids! When I was a kid we would go once a year, and it was my fav day of the whole year. I never dreamed of having passes and going often!  I was engaged there, had many times of happiness there. And many times of healing during deep times of loss and sadness. I hope to go there for the rest of my life too! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #653 7:45AM
awesome dave, and hopefully they pack up duffy and keep him overseas since they seem to love him there- such a poor marketing and failed strategy and feels so forced on us for years now - pikarich  6322.7 #22 7:47AM
πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Disney for life and generations to come. Our oldest said when she is ready for marriage her prospective husband will have to be a Disney Lover too!  I hope it works out ☺ - PrincessDuckie  931.0 #213 9:12AM
Very cool Dave! During the clip I memories started flooding back, from childhood, adolescence, love, lost, grieving, thank you for this!!!!!! - goofydad909  1999.8 #91 9:38AM

Thank you for posting this and thank you for sharing all your Disney knowledge both historical and personal. I love hearing about others lives, where they've come from, where they've been and what they've seen. I couldn't imagine being part of Disney as long and as closely as you. I still feel that same excitement when I walk through the turnstile as I did the very first time. ✨ - dumbbunny  627.6 #348 6:10PM
made my night! I love this.... sniff sniff  - elisadisney  196.0 #2124 6:59PM
Who sings this song!?  Gotta have it!!! - Sfarrell  104.6 #3610 7:04PM
It's LeeAnn Rimes and it's like one of the best songs EVER! One of the bedtime songs I sang my boys πŸ’— (gonna cry again!!) - TinkerSchelle  2073.4 #84 8:45PM
Thank you for this post.  This is one of my favorite songs, and helps show the many ways Walt Disney and Disneyland can touch your life ! - SBsnowwhite  522.6 #432 7:31PM
Oh man, was that an amazing tribute.  My eyes are welled up with tears.  Thank you!You are so lucky to have so many memories there! - sujojo  19.7 #7775 7:39PM

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  292.9 #1022 7:03PM

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 #335 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7585 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #521 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 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  292.9 #1022 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  21.3 #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  7930.3 #12 1:41PM
