BIRTHDAY BASH FAQs:

Is there a fee to attend the Attraction Takeover or the Main Event? NO! (MouseWait is not charging a dime, however normal Disney fees apply i.e. parking, admission, etc). 

I'm blocked out can I still attend? YES! You can attend our Main Event on Saturday 2pm in Downtown Disney.

Where do I park? Downtown Disney has 3 hours free parking, and 5 hours with validation. 

Do I have to be a member of MouseWait to attend? NO! These events are open to everyone and there will be a lot of people so you don't have to worry, just mosey on down and everyone will welcome you like family. 

I've heard MouseWait Events are fun, but I feel awkward because I've never been to one before. Don't worry about that, our events are family friendly, and everyone shares the same love for Disneyland. We won't embarrass you or make you do anything stupid--and it's not a structured event so you can come and go as you please. People have met lifelong friends at these events, you'll see what everyone's talking about once you get there. 

Where is the Main Event on Saturday at 2pm? Watch your email and the Lounge Saturday morning and we will reveal the secret Downtown Disney location!

Has MouseWait really been around for 5 years? YES! It's hard to believe but it's true. 

BOOK YOUR ROOM A THE HOJO! This will be a busy weekend at the Resort. Book your hotel at a discounted rate with our Hojo room rate (you get 100 MouseWait Credits for staying at the Hojo). Call in-house reservations today at 714-776-6120 and mention MouseWait -- staying at the Resort makes the weekend a lot more fun because you don't have to worry about wasting time with parking, and you're only steps away from all of the events. 



Watch this post for updates from the Event Team and myself. I look forward to seeing you in October!

I would like to echo what @Admin has said above. This will be the 2nd Bday Bash I've fully attended, even though I attended a Buzz meetup during 2012 & I'm so glad that I have. I personally have made lifetime friendships & by attending these events have been able to share both laughter & tears in person with these great people. I travel approx 700 miles to attend these events & I look forward to spending time with my MW friends & meeting many more in the future - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1901.2 #88 8:40PM

I just tried the link again from my email. I found that if I clicked directly above the red square for the ticket store.with the arrow, and not ON the arrow, a web site flashed on the bottom of my screen. so I clicked when it flashed and my curser was above the red square and not in it. It then took me to the ticket store. That might be the problem for others also. Thank you for the link and your efforts to help everyone attend!!! - snowgrey  6.8 #14448 6:37PM

I would love to go! I am leaving that Friday evening for Henderson NV for a family wedding and won't be heading home until Saturday night and wouldn't be home till midnight or so. πŸ˜”I would love to go the what ever the next event it though! I'd love to make more Disneyland friends! - Evalyn31Britt  47.1 #4906 8:50PM
My friend used to live in Henderson. Kody Brown is in Vegas 😊😊 - misschurro  6362.1 #17 10:29PM
Hi! I'm thinking of attending the event. I will be comming by myself and I am really nervous. I'm usually really shh and quiet. Will anyone else be attending alone? This will be my first MW meetup/event ever.  - DisneylandGirl  281.2 #1046 5:47AM
Their are a few of us flying solo. Please don't let that stop you from coming! It's so much fun. Tell you what, I will get there early and save you a seat so you have a least one person to hang out with!  - breathe_in_the_happiness  879.2 #207 7:17AM
This will be my 1st MW event as well.  I've recognized quite a few MW'ers but have always been too shy to say hi.  This will be a nice chance for us 1st timers to break the ice with others πŸ˜ƒ - DisneyPrincessT  165.5 #2485 8:26AM
Aww. Don't be shy. I will say one thing and speak for myself, I am a visual person so if you tell me your name, I might not get who you are right away.  But if I see your name written, or in the lounge or have a visual of your profile picture, I would know who you are. Or if you reminded me of a post or something. At the reunion in 2013, after the ride takeovers that Friday night, I was hanging out with a few MouseWaiters while waiting in queue for Space Mountain. Only when we got into our vehicle, did I ask one of the gals again, who I was sitting next to,what her name was, she told me. Oh dear! 😱 I started screaming and laughing because I did not realize for the past 45 minutes who she was and that we both always had fun chatting back-and-forth in the Lounge. We both laughed and had a great time. So, do say hello😊😊 - misschurro  6362.1 #17 9:02AM
And DisneyPrincessT-  I just realized I already told you the story on one of your postsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro  6362.1 #17 9:33AM
I will also be going alone,  but thsts not a bad thing.  Lol. Looking forward to meeting you and DisneyPrincessT. Breath_in, you better reserve an entire table for us solo gals.  Lol - MintJulep  237.5 #1501 10:16AM
@DisneyPrincessT and @MintJulep you got it!  - breathe_in_the_happiness  879.2 #207 1:35PM
I was going to be solo, but now it looks like my husband will be going with me that day.  I am hoping to stop by and finally meet you folks. - Winnie111286  12309.0 #4 10:23AM
Would love to meet you! Bring hubby along! You won't regret it! :) - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 11:28AM
Going to try. I told him. - Winnie111286  12309.0 #4 1:20PM

Not sure if we will be attending, but will be donating for the raffle like always.  - LuvsTigger  1630.9 #103 3:37PM
Awe! Hope you get to go! And very generous of you to donate! I'm sure Admin appreciates it greatly!  - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 6:13PM
I hope so. Would love to see you and your mini! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 8:32AM
Hope you two can make it - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1901.2 #88 9:19AM
Looking like Saturday afternoon we will be around. :)  - LuvsTigger  1630.9 #103 10:32PM
Probably a dumb question,  I'm assuming since this is a family friendly app that this event is also family friendly? I'm bringing my smallest mini with me. - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 8:52AM
Absolutely! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:14AM
Very family friendly - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1901.2 #88 9:10AM

Hello! I had a question about the timeline- how long is the raffle? Does it start right at 2pm? Just trying to get an idea of how the afternoon goes. Thanks! - LittleMermaidLover  290.6 #971 10:09AM
You will have time to buy tickets and look over the raffle items. They should announce when time is almost up, so you have time to get your tickets in. Probably not for at least an hour, I would say. (Just my unofficial two cents. πŸ˜‚). I would plan on hanging out for a couple hours or so.  - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 10:16AM
Thanks that helps!! - LittleMermaidLover  290.6 #971 3:09PM
We start selling tickets and open up the raffle after it's all done being set up. Then draw the winners closer to the end of the event. There's a good 1 and a half hours of buying tickets and putting them in bags.  - mini_MINNIE  1140.1 #157 4:52PM
Is there a location yet? - Winnie111286  12309.0 #4 10:39AM
Indeed there is. Will be announced Saturday at noon in the lounge.   - mini_MINNIE  1140.1 #157 4:53PM
Woot woot sounds like fun!! - robles6  450.0 #0 11:03AM
Are we getting nametags this time? I inadvertently called Stitch "Pika" by accident when I ran into a group of MW'ers at the Carthay Circle Lounge!!  - breathe_in_the_happiness  879.2 #207 1:03PM
That's ok i guess everyone wants to b r pika - pikarich  5232.4 #23 1:20PM
Last time we had name tags I ended up with 3 different names - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 1:56PM
Do you have a button that says 'Creepy Mickey Face,' philliprocks ?  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 3:05PM
I am hoping to stop by and would like to know if I can bring a donation at the last minute.  - Winnie111286  12309.0 #4 9:43AM
I also would like to know where and when I can bring my donation. I filled out the form.. - MinnieTinker  617.4 #330 11:25AM
Hey Winnie111286 & amyb1076 that is what I will be doing. I would reach out to Sonja she's been a big help around here :0) - FrankenweenieVelinee  3017.9 #44 11:31AM
Yes you can bring donations last minute, I also have more to donate amyb1076 Winnie111286 - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1901.2 #88 12:05PM

Yup I sent money to Amy since I couldn't be there and I won two prizes! - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 9:58PM
Do we at least know if the 2 pm event is going to be at a place that has food?  Hungry Tummy's want to know! 😍 - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 10:02PM
You can eat while there although food will not be provided during the event. Except for cake. There will be cake.  - mini_MINNIE  1140.1 #157 12:02AM
Thanks. Please clarify, we will be able to buy food there or bring food to the event? - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 12:51AM
Thanks!  Please clarify, is the event somewhere we can buy food or bring food into?   - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 12:53AM
You can bring food to the event if you'd like. But no food will be sold. We picked 2pm as it is after lunch time. :)  And there will only be cake for a handful of people on a first come first serve basis. After the judging sold at $1 a piece. The more desserts people donate the better!  - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 6:44AM
