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  1723.5 #92 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  5.9 #15272 6:37PM

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  276.3 #1047 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  763.7 #235 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  108.0 #3400 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😊😊 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5728.9 #18 9:02AM
And DisneyPrincessT-  I just realized I already told you the story on one of your postsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5728.9 #18 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 #1454 10:16AM
@DisneyPrincessT and @MintJulep you got it!  - breathe_in_the_happiness  763.7 #235 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  6228.4 #16 10:23AM
Would love to meet you! Bring hubby along! You won't regret it! :) - Duchess_SMK  6197.6 #17 11:28AM

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  729.1 #253 8:52AM
Absolutely! - MeridaFan  3626.4 #37 9:14AM

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  290.5 #927 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  3626.4 #37 10:16AM
Thanks that helps!! - LittleMermaidLover  290.5 #927 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  1134.9 #151 4:52PM
Is there a location yet? - Winnie111286  6228.4 #16 10:39AM
Indeed there is. Will be announced Saturday at noon in the lounge.   - mini_MINNIE  1134.9 #151 4:53PM
Woot woot sounds like fun!! - robles6  449.1 #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  763.7 #235 1:03PM
That's ok i guess everyone wants to b r pika - pikarich  4741.6 #24 1:20PM
Last time we had name tags I ended up with 3 different names - philliprocks  1198.8 #139 1:56PM
Do you have a button that says 'Creepy Mickey Face,' philliprocks ?  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  3626.4 #37 3:05PM
I am hoping to stop by and would like to know if I can bring a donation at the last minute.  - Winnie111286  6228.4 #16 9:43AM

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.

unFORECAST for the week of September 29, 2015
Mickey's Halloween Party has an interesting effect on crowd levels. This week, Disneyland will close early on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to host the party. Disneyland Park crowds are usually lighter on party days (with the exception of Friday). Last weekend was very busy, while this Monday was not. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities. 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 Sep 29, 2015 11:33AM

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  558.8 #346 5:39PM
