I know I'm late in writing this, but better late than never! #mymwstory #mwstory I grew up in Anaheim, frequenting Disneyland whenever friends and family came to visit. My mother instilled in me: get to the parks before it opens and not leaving until it closes; it's ok to run in the parks & it's acceptable to go on the same ride over and over; there's no time to sit down at Disneyland, get a pickle and get in line!!! For the longest time, even into adulthood I abided by what my mom taught me! When we moved to Sacramento when I was twelve, I was broken hearted. Not only was I leaving friends and the beach, I was leaving my magical place. I was devastated because my dream was to work at Disneyland when I was old enough. Years passed where I didn't go to the parks even once!! When I was in college a few friends and I went for a few days - it brought back so many wonderful memories and I had truly missed the magic of the parks! I then decided to buy an annual pass! I downloaded mousewait soon after to use for ride times. I found myself checking ride times at least three times a day longing to be in the parks on days when ride times were minimal! One day I accidentally clicked on the lounge link at the bottom of the old MW version. A whole new world opened in February of 2013! I could experience Disneyland as often as I wanted through live pictures!! I thought for sure this would help with being so far away! It did, but it made me want to go even more - I felt like I was missing out on so much! In April 2013, during my Bachelorette Party, I did my first in park RAK, and I was hooked. Sunshinegates and her family found me! I began to post weekly mystery vinylmation raks to try to pass the time between visits. In August of 2013, I was invited to attend a wonderful celebration for Mickeyat's return to the parks after having her kidney transplant. My husband was so nervous about me going to the parks by myself and meeting 'strangers'. I met the most wonderful friends whom I talk to on a regular basis: Mickeyat, SpiritofAdventure, Lohofosho, Missariel33, and lotusflow3r. I got to meet Dave and have lunch at Club 33 with this lovely group of MouseWaiters. Since my first experience, I have met even more wonderful people- QueenMiranda, RCMom, Mrsschnooks, missmimi99, goofymom2boys, Dlkenca, jengwen, cinderell-1979--gosh, there are way too many to list, especially after going to the Birthday Bash in October! And there are so many that I interact with and haven't had the pleasure of meeting!!!! I've hosted a few meet ups, one being a DisneyBound and a couple at Tower of Terror! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't check mousewait or think about Disneyland. I really thought this ap would help with my withdrawals. But it has made me postpone getting pregnant another year because I just can't get enough of the parks - Because I've been going so often, I've learned to slow down and not rush around like I had learned to do when I was little. I've also begun to sit down to eat and not have anxiety attacks if I'm not on a ride every moment! I've enjoyed attractions I hadn't ever taken the time to try. I rode Dumbo for the first time since I was five! I've ridden the Mark Twain! I've even sat down and learned how to draw the Cheshire Cat at DCA. This ap has taught me so much and has put wonderful people in my path who love Disney as much as I do. I know I will meet so many more of you soon! To those of you I have had the pleasure of meeting, you've all had such a positive impact on my life! Disneyland is my get away from everyday life where I teach students with special needs. I love my job, but there are times when I need to get away, so my monthly trips to Disneyland are my way of rejuvenating and coming back to the classroom refreshed and more patient than before. I don't know what I'm going to do when I do become pregnant--- guess we will just play that by ear!! To the creators of mousewait - I cannot thank you enough! #ijustwroteanovel -Disneyland, I will see you soon!

I swear we are like kindred spirits!! Although I'm not postponing getting pregnant, it is taking much longer than anticipated!! But I will keep enjoying my ap and Disneyland while we impatiently wait.  - mrstrmiller  522.1 #425 9:02PM

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  643.2 #330 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7482 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #519 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  176.8 #2350 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75896 12:12PM
Have Saturdays been less busy then Tuesdays or Wednesdays recently? - TiDoubleGuhErr  0.3 #88537 12:07AM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  64.0 #4433 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  6908.2 #17 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2765.0 #54 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.6 #257 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  245.1 #1462 6:54PM
Wow! I made it to the top ten! And while pushing a wheelchair this trip...  - Jathanis  382.1 #615 3:18PM
Good job!!   - Ilovegoofy  70.1 #4264 10:28AM
I think one of you were just ahead of me today.  Most of the rides had the right wait time posted so they didnt need updating. - sallen848  186.9 #2218 10:51PM
Go ahead and update it as admin needs them posted as current time as possible. You can have ten people with you inputting times themselves and it still helps the app! (As long as all are on their own account I should clarify)😍 thanks for doing wait times, it helps us all!! - secretagentangel  6908.2 #17 1:19PM
