As the day ends for me, I look at this view and simply feel so thankful for this app coming into existence 3 years ago. I wouldn't have the memories, the fun moments, the friendships, the best friends, nor the extra gigantic love I now I have for Disney! Thank you admin for dreaming of an app that brought sooooo much more!
::tears up:: Awesome Marsha - all the best for everyone that got to share in the weekend and all of us that get so much from the community and app. - MrsMears  217.3 #1937 11:27PM
Beautiful view! - HollyGolightlyPrincess  409.6 #644 10:44PM
I started thinking it was exactly one year ago that I went to the birthday bash and it was my first meetup! And your the first person I met. I was so nervous but you have such a wonderful smile and that put me at ease! - HollyGolightlyPrincess  409.6 #644 1:03AM
You are such a special person. I want to thank you for taking my daughter under your wing. I was so worried with her being so far from home, but after meeting you and the other great Mwers I know she is in good hands. - ladylikesdisneysmom  269.6 #1322 7:42AM

Since I can't be there today I thought I'd wish MouseWait a very happy birthday with a collage of some of my favorite MW moments. Thank you Admin and everyone who has made this not just an app community but a true Disney family! I love you all, or well...most of you anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for being such an important part of my life!

Three years ago today MouseWait was approved by Apple and made its debut in the App Store! Several weeks before that, we went to Disneyland to test the app, and I remember sitting in the lobby of the Grand watching as the test wait times registered in the admin panel. I was somewhat surprised because after a year of struggling to build the app, it appeared to be ready for submission. I remember te  More...
Its crazy to think that its been 3 years. It honestly feels a lot longer..Its amazing at how big the community has gotten since the very first meetup..The life long friendships, the dreams that have come true, and the laughter that we all have in the parks on a daily basis.Its so neat to see all these meetups on a daily basis that get up to 80 people and happen not only at the parks but all over the state of California..Its pretty crazy to think that none of us would probably have ever met if it were not for this app...There are not many of us from the beginning who still actively post on MouseWait or attend meetups but I know that each and everyone of them is extremely grateful for the people who have been brought into their lives because of this app....I know some people might get annoyed at times by people posting in the lounge and their countdowns to the park, what is your favorite ride, etc etc but you have to remember, you were once that new kid on the block that was just as excited to post in the lounge and join in on the fun and not read the FAQ....I look forward this weekend seeing old friends and meeting new ones and finally getting the chance to meet some of you that I've seen in the lounge for sometime but never had the chance to meet in person....Hope everyone has a fun a weekend!!!

Thanks Dave, well said, and it was great to see you there this weekend. Singing Happy Birthday to BBM was a blast! - Admin  8:59PM
Thanks to Mousewait: I think leggings and uggs are a viable fashion choice, I tried (and failed) to eat a Matterhorn sundae by myself, I know who Denny Hamlin is, I know where all the bars are in the resort, I've had many sleepless nights and a phone fall on my face more than once, I know about penny wise and honey badgers and Rebecca black and gangnam style and hidin yo kids, I witnessed a banana peeled, I own vinylmations and pins and earhats and about $1000 worth of crap from company d. Yeah, thanks. ๐Ÿ˜ Actually, I have a lot to thank MW for: late night craft frenzies, staying up all night talking in our hotel rooms, going to WDW with people I barely knew 6 months, realizing that we know everyone on our floor, pizza parties, group texts, squeezing 40 people on a jungle cruise boat and making the skipper laugh too hard to spiel, going to gay days and bats day and dapper day and Harry potter day, answering "80" when the cm asks "how many?" and then watching them panic, reading about the MW babies being born and watching them grow up and finally being tall enough to ride the big kid rides, skipping down main street arm in arm like a bunch of doofuses, โ˜” on pirates, dressing up like plaids and getting a talking to by security, meat babies, laying on the ground to watch fireworks, having someone text "are you home safely?" at 2am, and always being there for you, even when life sucks. Thanks MW, you're alright. ๐Ÿ˜‰ - bluefairy  643.8 #373 4:42AM
Ha! Good stuff! - Admin  9:02PM
Thank you Admin for creating an awesome app!! It's awesome to watch this app grow and grow! It's a beautiful thing!! Here's to another 3 years and more!! Cheers!!! - Wilaine  25.5 #7155 1:11PM
Thank you for writing this app. I remember being jealous of my daughter because she had the app. When I finally got an iPhone the first app I download was MW. Once again thank you. Love the app - susiet23  156.3 #2807 7:26PM

Birthday Bash Meetup Oct 20, 2012 04:00pm Location to be announced, we will meet up outside the Park and then go in together for ride takeovers and other fun things.
Just a quick reminder of something I posted back in May after my first (and only) big MW meet up at the reunion: ย The meet ups and weekend were fantastic partly because I took the initiative to step outside of my shy comfort zone and introduce myself and meet others. Don't miss the opportunity...everyone is very, very matter how long they've been on MW. Just say Hi, I'm ____, who are you? ย I wish, wish, wish I'd get to be there for all the fun this weekend...but I'll be checking my phone for updates and pictures :)ย  - Darlingwendi  1228.3 #178 11:23AM
Sad that you won't be here. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #212 11:27AM

Can't wait, but I can Mouse Wait! - Evilstitch  338.5 #830 12:14PM
I really wished that I could go to the MW Bday Bash! It's my birthday on the 20th as well. But I can't go. Bummers. Just got AP's last month for my whole family and had a whole week at DLR. We will be back in the ending of May. For now, this cool MW app will have to do for now. I love this app! Now I wish I had a smartphone to post pictures and stuff. - kaukris1  126.1 #3299 1:27PM
Birthday Bash Meetup 4pm Saturday: We'll be meeting near the fireplace in front of Trader Sam's at the Disneyland Hotel and then we'll move into the Park from there, get something to eat, and then do the Jungle Cruise Meetup. The fireplace is actually in the vicinity of where the Lost Bar once was, which is where our first Family Reunion was held! If you are blocked out, click the Admin link and find our discounted tickets page, or just swing by to hang out before we go into the Park. See you tomorrow! - Admin 7:28PM

Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to design the 3rd birthday bash logo! It was a really fun project to work on, I originally was only designing a tea party themed table. But admin wanted to incorporate the magic race as well. The family at the table is admin and his family, and the people at the bottom are the top 5 mousewaiters. - chris.  2511.4 #73 3:35PM
