 Best Post of the Day 5-3-14
Last night while working Fantasmic I noticed a marine in dress blues hanging out near Haunted Mansion taking pictures with his girlfriend and talking to some other guests . With my deep respect for members of our Armed Forces, I walked over and thanked him for his service and talked to him about life in general and handed him some readmission passes to enjoy some of his favorite attractions before I had to run off and help with the oncoming rush of the crowd.Later on after my break I noticed the same marine and his girlfriend standing around in a terrible location trying to watch the 10:30 Fantasmic show. Without saying anything to them, I went and asked my lead if we had any room in our VIP section that's dead center over by Pirates for a party of 2 and got the ok. I walked back over to the couple and get their attention and tell them that on behalf of Disneyland, we'd like to extend our thanks for his sacrifice and service and lead them to a better viewing location. On the walk over I notice that the marine's girlfriend is now carrying red roses and catch a sparkle of light on her finger. I ask if my suspicions are correct and recieve an affirmative, that he had proposed to her that night. I gave them a big congratulations and told them to enjoy the show. Little did they know I had more surprises in mind if I got the ok.Again, I go running to find a lead to ask if we can do anything more for this couple and explain the situation. It took a trainer and a lead to get the needed NSA card but we finally found one and my frantic run to finish my task before the show ended was under way. I ended up getting them a set of "Happily Ever After" buttons, a bride and groom set of Mickey ears and made out a couple more readds for them and got back right before the prince and princesses scene, perfect timing! They both couldn't stop thanking me, the fiance is on the edge of crying and the marine grabs my hand, shakes it and goes "You really didn't have to do all this you know. Thank you!" All I could say in response was "Yes, I did , it's what we do. We as a country owe you so much more, this is the least I could do for you guys."It's moments like this that make my job stand out from any other in the world. Being able to make magical memories that will last a lifetime on the fly and having the support of the entire team to help make these moments possible is one of the greatest benefits of work we have. I can't think of anywhere else that goes far and beyond the expected on a daily basis in order to make someone elses day that much more memorable.

As a veteran, a wife of a veteran, the parent of a veteran, and two sons still serving; your kindness made me tear up. Thank you for showing them kindness, and appreciation. Their sacrifices are great, and they ask for nothing in return. I know that this act will be remembered and talked about forever.  - Sugarbuzz  203.8 #1870 7:55PM
That is such a special story. TY. A CM. named Tammy stopped and talked with my husband and I about our love and memories of Disneyland. She remember a friends of my family (my parents who are no longer with us). The friend was Dick Hansen, who was a glass blower at Disneyland yrs ago. He did swans. I believe he knitted the castle for DL.  She Tammy has such class and her love for her job so evident. TY Tammy - susanray5  14.5 #0 4:27PM

Best Post of the Day!!! Thank you for sharing and making wonderful memories that last a lifetime! - AriellesMom  91.8 #3594 2:32PM
A wonderful story. I am a Marine serving on recruiting duty and I wear my uniform everyday where people would least expect someone in a military uniform.  It may seem like a simple thank you, but to a service member it reminds us what we are serving for.  It makes the long deployments away from families and missed memories worthwhile.   - cmg82  7.5 #12368 2:52PM

This must have been the same guy I saw sneak by me in the middle of pyro last night. He had a pyro lead escort him from Main Street to the walkway to Fantasy Faire, holding a bouquet of flowers. Maybe he surprised his family?? We'll never know. But great job Matt! Truly a magical moment!  - BaseballMickey_CM  7045.7 #9 7:42PM

Old post I know, SORRY but felt nobody would mind a "re-run" Β This hit me in a very soft spot and want to make sure everyone had a chance to see this and realize what makes DLR our "HOME". I was just doing a search for "Fantasmic VIP" for my four year old daughter. We just realized that she has never seen it and wanted to make sure she did this October. - MermaidHunter  121.2 #3099 1:37PM

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 June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



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  428.2 #472 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7066 11:53PM
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  130.6 #2942 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  237.2 #1438 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM

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
