 Best Post of the Day 5-13-14
Good Morning! This day in Disney history, May 13th, 1992. Disneyland's Fantasmic! - is officially dedicated in a 22-minute presentation in Frontierland. Making today it's 22nd Anniversary!

To watch a advertisement  from 1992 and scenes from the opening ceremony: http://is.gd/iW9SUr


Shaun Slater wrote an interesting article for Disney parks blog in 2012. He shared his conversation with Barnette Ricci, Vice President/Show Director of Special Events for the Walt Disney Studios, who 22 years ago was senior show director for Disneyland park. She shared some of her memories of creating Fantasmic! To read: http://is.gd/rBew5k

A description of the show taken directly from disneyland.disney.go.com:

“Power of Imagination
Stunning effects erupt against the night sky while Disney Characters join the reverie—as projections on water and in live performances.
Join the Reverie 
While Mickey conducts a breathtaking water show on the Rivers of America, his active imagination begins to grow.
Using his conductor's wand, he guides whimsical scenes from Fantasia across enormous screens of water—while brilliant sparks burst overhead.
Pink elephants, massive puppets, princesses and more surprisingly appear on and around Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island.

Who Will Win?

When the Evil Queen calls for her Magic Mirror, Mickey's dream takes a dark turn. The forces of evil come out of the shadows as she invokes some of Disney's most dastardly villains—including an impressive, 45-foot, fire breathing beastly dragon!

Will Mickey triumph over this terrifying beast from the depths of his nightmare?
Technical Wonderment 
Be amazed by Mickey’s dream as it builds with high-resolution digital film sequences, music, pyrotechnics, fiber optics, lasers, video projected on water and plenty of special effects.”

😭😭😅👏 thank you for doing a Fantasmic history post Duchess! My all time favorite disney show. I still remember all the little changes they've made over the years, it always holds a special memory and I will always watch 100 times in a row if I could. I have so many favorite parts. If you watched it with me, you'd laugh at how many times I would lean over and say "oh this is my favorite part" 😂 thanks duchess! - mini_MINNIE  1165.8 #157 9:03AM
😂😂 me too! - PrincessDuckie  913.7 #206 9:14AM

You're so stinkin cute! I hope I get to watch the show with you someday!  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 3:50PM
🎉🎉🎉 So many great memories of Fantasmic!  The first few summers of Fantasmic we took quite a few groups to DL just to see this amazing show. I would camp out starting at like 3 pm lol with my blanket and a book to save space. I don't know why I brought a book I always ended up people watching!  I loved sharing the show with our nieces, nephews (Teen Mickey!) , goddaughters and little friends. Every show I had a twinge of sadness that we would never have kids to share the show with. But I did love watching the show with kids and first timers. It was the best feeling ever. Flash forward a few years when our first miracle came along. I think I watched her watch the show the whole time. Crying of course. So grateful we had a daughter to share the magic with. Flash forward about eight years later when Lil One came along. She is obsessed with Fantasmic just like I am!  We have watched it twice in rain because we could!  Who cares about getting wet. 😂😂😂 any who thanks for the memories Duchess! - PrincessDuckie  913.7 #206 9:14AM
Awe! Those are great memories!  - mini_MINNIE  1165.8 #157 9:18AM
Awe! So sweet! I did the same thing the first time my eldest watched. Disneyland through a child's eyes never gets old! 😊 Thanks for sharing that with us!  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 3:53PM
Time for my annual "Hey look, it's a picture of Evil Incarnate, and he standing next to Maleficent..." - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #802 9:24AM
You always make me laugh, what did you call him last year? A "clown shoe"?  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 3:53PM
Lol, he goes by many names... - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #802 5:46PM
I love fantasmic! It is the best show ever that never gets old. It will always have special meaning and memories for me! Like watching it with my parents as a little girl at the end of a long day at the parks. To watching it from the dream suite for my birthday last year with  MW friends! 💜💚💜💚 - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #122 8:59AM
Such special memories! I just love reading how Disney touches people in so many different ways! Thanks so much for sharing that! Miss you! Feel like it's been ages since I've seen you!  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 5:32PM
Fantasmic is my favorite!! Would choose it over WOC any day! 😊 Thank you for posting!  - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #308 9:12AM
AGREED! Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 10:25PM
Definitely the best show ever - - Grindcore  565.9 #370 9:19AM
Do you have a favorite part?  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 4:39PM
There are so many! A few parts come to mind: 1. The monkeys!  2. The goldfish  3.  The transition from Hook dangling from the boat to the Princess segment 4. The moment that Murphy emerges. - Grindcore  565.9 #370 9:12PM
We love it so much. We are actually doing the preferred seating twice this weekend! - garrlusdland  67.6 #4298 9:37AM
woohoo! How fun! - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 10:27PM
Great job! I personally didn't see the show in its entirety until about 3 years ago when I first got an AP. Now working in the area of the Rivers of America, I get to see/hear the show about 2-5 times a week (after doing the math, that's about 300-400 shows), but it never gets old. I think it has to do something with the live action characters and the music that underscores the entire show.  - BaseballMickey  7838.0 #11 10:25AM
Thanks Buddy! So blessed to get to be at the park as often as you are! I agree! It's quite the show! - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 10:28PM
😍😍😍This is my very favorite nighttime thing to do at Disneyland. We can't take a trip without seeing fantasmic. My favorite parts are the  princess and the monkeys. Thank you so much for all these great posts. - joyful_belle131  59.4 #4524 10:34AM
Love the monkeys! That's my favorite part too! Thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 6:08AM
Wow 1992!?!  I remember it's first showings and all of the ads omg I'm a 👵. Thanks Duchess!! For a great post and reminding us all how old we are lol 😘😜 - missariel33  2115.6 #75 10:37AM
You are SO not old! You were probably just a baby when those came out. 😉😘 thanks doll!  - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 6:09AM
I've only seen Fantasmic a few times. I tear up everytime cause the actual movie- Fantasia was my late fathers favorite movie of all time. - Superspacemountainfan  92.2 #3760 10:41AM
Awe how sweet! Well I highly recommend making time to watch it again. It really is a special show. 😊😘 - Duchess_SMK  6470.1 #18 6:10AM

Wow! Such a great show and I have only seen it twice! The last time was last November, I believe. I  don't recall Flotsam & Jetsam in it(thanks so much for that) it was a great show and it made me tear up. To see so many characters that we have enjoyed in films and  elements of many movies,  from decades, was incredible to see come to life! Thanks!!  Can't wait to see you on Friday😘 - misschurro  7092.5 #15 4:44PM

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 April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM



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 #321 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7404 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 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  175.3 #2345 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.6 #1179 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17901 3:45PM

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!!👏👏👏 - secretagentangel  5590.0 #23 9:06PM

MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127123 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5590.0 #23 8:10PM
