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!

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 August 24, 2015 Summer is over, according to the Disneyland Resort calendar. Hours have been reduced for the first time since summer began (Disneyland & DCA closes at 10pm M-TH). Most Orange County schools are back in session today, which usually points to smaller crowds. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity) -- it even dipped into the 50s on some days. This data points to lower crowds this week. If you've been waiting for the summer madness to end, this might be your week to hit the Parks! 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 Aug 24, 2015 11:03AM
