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!

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
