Unfortunately there are a few people posting libelous and defamatory reviews on iTunes in an effort to hurt MouseWait. One of these users, thatwasmickeymouse, has done several illegal things to hurt the community, including trolling the Lounge with fake usernames, posting fake wait times while not in the park, posting defamatory comments on the MouseWait Facebook page, posting defamatory comments on the Internet and iTunes, making threats to MouseWaiters on our Flickr page, and more. He has even admitted some of these things IN WRITING (and I have proof of this). I will not tolerate this type of activity any more and I have decided to pursue legal action against this user and all individuals who intend to cause damage to the MouseWait app and community. In addition to this, this user's friends are helping him boost the fake reviews - I guess they are not aware of the fact that it is against the law to post false, defamatory information in writing online, and that they could receive a personal judgment which would require them to pay a monetary amount. I am also enlisting the help of Apple to help us fight this fraud as well. So the reason for this post is to put the people involved with this activity on legal notice - according to California Law, defamation could be written or oral, and communication to a single individual other than the plaintiff is enough for a defamation claim - and I will not hesitate to take action on this - because it is very important to me to have a community which excludes people who have no regard for the law or other people. I have only banned a handful of people from the Lounge in over a year, and each time it was for a very good reason. The second reason for this post is that I need your help in getting the truth out on iTunes - I am not going to tell you what to do because that is up to you but, I want to tell you how they are scamming the system. If you launch iTunes on your desktop and go to any app in the app store, on the reviews, there is an option that says "Was this review helpful?" and you can click Yes or No. The reviews with the most Yes votes go to the top. iTunes ratings are very important to an app and these people are deliberately trying to harm the MouseWait community by spreading lies and trying to hurt the app financially. If you could go to iTunes on your desktop and help us get the truth out that would be great. Thanks again and I hope this helps clear some things up.

Wow! I will head to iTunes now. - Missshelly  698.3 #282 7:44PM

Again Admin, I'm really sorry that you have to deal with Adults acting like children. I am glad that you have decided to take legal action because people need to learn that there are consequences to their actions. Thank you for clearing this up for those that have been in the dark as to what was going on. Thank you again for all the hard work and dedication you Hagen put into this app and making it a place where people can escape and experience the magic of the parks when they aren't able to go! I have found new appreciation for it being so far away! Thanks again. - PrettyPixie  760.3 #255 7:51PM
I'm reading some of the reviews and its fun that you actually recognize a lot of the names! I just gave MW 2.1 a 5 star rating! - BaseballMickey  7855.0 #11 7:51PM

Good for you! I'm glad you've gone farther than just a slap on the hands. What has been happening is absolutely unacceptable. I hope things work out for the best. Don't EVER worry.... the good in MW will always prevail. You have a strong army behind ANY decision you make, Admin. It's just a shame you have to deal with such immaturity.

I support you and will help in any way necessary!!! This app is amazing, with amazing people!!!! - Kenry  1298.5 #139 8:06PM

It's unfortunate that a few pouty members would go to this extent to slander the app they so loved not that long ago. Oh well, hope we can all move past this and keep on keepin' on what is great about this community! - Zooter  1405.8 #127 8:19PM
I agree Zooter. It was not too long ago that we were all friends. It makes me sad that it has come to this. However we'll move forward with our old and new friends and continue to have a magical time!  - PrettyPixie  760.3 #255 8:21PM

Wow! The nerve some people have!!! I will head to the computer right now. Can we post more than one review? - SPandEvLover  4707.6 #29 8:40PM
I'm reading some of these reviews and some are complaining that the wait times didn't load for them and others things were slow. But what's worse is that they are saying that the Lounge has too much "worthless" talk. Some people just don't get it... - BaseballMickey  7855.0 #11 8:41PM
Even if someone had issues with MW it is ridiculous that they would go to THAT extent. They chose to come they can choose to leave and move on. Or just choose to leave the lounge and just use the helpful info it is meant for. It is a very good idea admin and I agree with everyone on this. This app is awesome and worth fighting for. - Sassie_Cass  161.0 #2589 8:41PM
On my way to iTunes now - Minderella  299.3 #950 8:42PM
Also if you go on iTunes on a laptop or computer you can Report a Concern about that particular review! If it has enough "not helpful" ratings it will go to the both of the review list! So PLEASE report your concern on these reviews!!!! - WickedWench  579.9 #359 8:42PM

Just got done giving a five star review. I am sorry that you have had to deal with such negativity when this app makes so many so happy. Even though I'm just starting out, I can see that this is an exciting and caring community of Disney fans & I look forward to becoming more involved and getting to know more about the people on MouseWait. - chelle1318  436.7 #513 8:51PM

 Say it isn't so!! I know that MW has had it's ups and downs, but to go to this extent is absurd. I really don't get why someone would do that. Just to play devils advocate, I'm not sure if it is being done maliciously by just one person. To be honest there are quite a few people (mostly from other apps and Disney sites) who really don't care for MW or it's users. I know it's sad to think, but it is true. I witnessed this first hand during last years Gumball Rally. I am loyal to MW and admit to visiting other Disney apps/sites, but would never go so far as to disrespect this app or it's members. I have made a lot of really great friends and look forward to meeting many of the new users when I return next year. I hope that if any of u decide to leave this app ( I don't know why u would), that u do it quietly and don't cause a scene. Thank u Admin, and everyone who has made MW what it is today.

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 theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β 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.Β Thanks for reading Β 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  5637.4 #23 8:10PM

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 #323 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7400 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 7:32AM

I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.8 #1182 5:04PM
