Morning mousewaiters! I was wondering what everyone does for a living? And do you enjoy it? Do you have time to go to Disneyland as often as you would like? I'll start, I'm a stay @ home Mom, but I'm also a massage therapist, and help out my Hubby a few times a week @ our auto registration service. I <3 my jobs! I've been able to squeeze in DL once a week since Christmas. I'd live there if I could! Lol

I work at a coffee shop and go to school full time. My major is either engineering or physics. I get to go pretty often even though I have my educational and financial responsibilities but I wouldn't say that's nearly enough. - Mark and my lady  -0.2 #166105 6:35AM

I'm mostly a SAHM but used to teach school and now volunteer once a week and am uniform co-ordinator (which I hate). I'm also a pastor's wife - and believe me, that's a job! In recent times we've spent2-3 days at DL at a time in 2004, 2005 and 2007. Probably won't get back for a few years - and that's nowhere near enough for me! But I wouldn't mind betting that I am the farthest MWaiter from DL. Quickest route takes 25+ hours by plane if you're lucky! :o( - BLG  1049.5 #153 9:01AM

I am a store manager for kragen/o'reilly auto parts. I have been in the automotive feild for about 12 years and i love cars. My finance normally get to the parks a couple times a month. - Nitrobug  1469.3 #95 10:05PM
I know I'm late to this post, just enjoying everyonrs answers! My bro and I service and inspect exhaust systems I'm industrial kitchens, weird I know, but supports the DL habbit. Also a Kung Fu instructor 3 days a week. - Name(required)Cd9  -0.1 #164837 12:04AM
I write music and television scripts in LA. I've been really lucky, met some amazing people, and thankfully can visit Disneyland whenever I want. An extended illness has kept me on the down low for 4 years, but this year I hope to return to work and make even more friends within the Disney company. I was lucky enough to escort an ederly imagineer to Disneyland's 50th Anniversery gala, which was probably my single happiest memory. So many talented, accomplished, and dazziling people that night. So many stories, so many memories. It reminded me what people can accomplish when they still have that spark of curiosity and the burning desire to share their work with the world on such a grand scale. It meant so much to me and the memory gives me hope for the future after a difficult period. - Kayoss  82.7 #3702 1:56AM
A Unix/Linux system admin. Formerly an Oracle database admin. I live close enough that we would go 3-4 times a week during the summer. It is tougher when my kids started school though. They have to go to bed early, so we only go 1 or 2 times a week - ZombieJerky  372.1 #557 2:42AM
I am a Registered Nurse. I work ER's on the weekend and run a clinic in LA during the week. I love all my jobs, and adore being a nurse. We go to DL about 2 x a month on Sundays( blocked out on Sat). I looked into working at the park, but you must be Part time (no Per Diem). And commit to 6 shifts a month. If I could work 1 or 2 weekend a month, I would work there in a second. - Out numbered mom  -0.2 #165832 3:17AM
I teach elementary school in Northern California. Since I districts around here are not hiring full time teachers right now I am a substitute. Currently I am a long term substitute teacher in a 3rd grade class. I have been with those kids since December and will be with them until the end of the school year. I absolutely love teaching! It is so rewarding! The district I work in has year-round schools, so I get whole months off at a time. I am off now and will be off again in May. Love, love, love the year round schedule! It provides lots of opportunities for vacations without crowds. DH and I are AP holders right now because we went in mid December for the holidays and we will be returining in May for our 1 year anniversary. Hoping for a great AP rate so we can stay at PPH or DLH! - Cutedisneygirly  2.3 #56642 7:21AM
Had to bring it back! So many new MouseWaiters lately I figured they would want to read/share. - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:38AM
My family owns a circus in which I do the pyro and music for, alongside performing in it. I also do promotional work for various companies such as Cirque Du Soleil, Ringling Bros., Disney On Ice and other companies and shows. I am blessed to do what I love most. - Aubrey  0.0 #137075 8:50AM

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 week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!
