Good morning! This day in Disney history, Sep 2nd, 1979. The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction opens. Imagineer Tony Baxter (pictured below) modeled the "wildest ride in the wilderness" attraction after the scenery of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Do you enjoy this attraction, and why? Has it been awhile since you've enjoyed this attraction? For a ride through video: http://is.gd/ZBq0fh (on the app version, click "detail" on the bottom of this thread to make the link "clickable")

In Zoolander voice: "What is that? A BTMRR for ants? It has to be at least 3times bigger.... - Radius  502.7 #444 11:24AM
hahaha!!! - OhanaPhoto  6397.5 #21 11:32AM
I remember what a big deal it was when it first opened. They had long lines similar to the first days of Cars Land. I also remember they kept the "E-Ticket" sign up for several years after the ticket system was done away with. I love the old west theme of BTMRR. Probably since I love western movies and history so much. Oh, and I last rode it way back on Tuesday night. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #89 7:33AM
I LOVE the info you always add ScooterMike! Thank you! Do you by chance remember the average wait time back then? - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 7:39AM
I was five years old, but I recall it being a couple of hours. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #89 7:41AM

What a sweet thing to say! It's my pleasure, really. Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 7:20AM
Love the trivia. You've even found a few that I don't know. My kids love this ride so I have been on it tons. It's also one of the few fast rides that I can take my two kids on by myself after the wife poops out in the evening and I take the kids back to the park for a few final hours. - justme2012  142.5 #2899 7:15AM
Yay! Happy you like these! I'm envious that your kiddos like this attraction. My 6 year old refuses to. ::sigh:: maybe in a few years. Lol - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 7:27AM
QC right there! Haven't been on that ride in about 11 years. Love the simplicity of the ride! Not over complicated and just pure fun!! - joyfulmomma  266.2 #1242 7:20AM
Thank you! I so agree! One of my favorites! Hope that 11 year streak ends soon! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 9:20AM
Thanks for posting, I enjoy reading these! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1624 7:34AM
Awesome! Thanks for letting me know! Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 9:20AM
This is one I can't remember I was only one years old. My son and I love this ride! - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 7:41AM
I'm so jealous he likes it! I gatta get LilSweet to try it again!! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 10:32AM
I've always loved this ride! I remember being a bit torn because I missed the original Mine Train. My dad on the other hand, used to tease me because he liked BTMRR so much better - " Disneyland needed another roller coaster ride!". It still has some reminders of the old ride - the town of Rainbow Ridge and the Rainbow Caverns. I don't remember ever waiting more than 45-60 minutes to ride it in the early days. - Gia  802.0 #237 8:00AM
I so love it when you share your stories with us gia0330! Thank you! 60 minutes isn't bad at all considering it was a new attraction! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 9:22AM
I really enjoy your trivia...especially the park stuff! It brings back so many wonderful memories! - Gia  802.0 #237 3:21PM
This is my favorite attraction in Disneyland because I love the outdoors, the theme is perfect, and I live for drops. Day or night (but mostly night, with the fireworks going off) - it's so much fun. Oh, and who can forget going on this and doing the goat effect?! It's definitely the wildest ride in the wilderness.. big thunder from down underrrrrr! - Jacqueline  580.0 #363 8:08AM
Riding this at night is magical! That down under comment made me giggle! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 10:34AM
I'm from Utah so this brings a touch of " home" for me. I love all the history stuff you do! Thank you!! - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2230 8:29AM
That's awesome, a little piece of home in your happy place! Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me so! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 10:36AM
I haven't been on since may. It was my son's first roller coaster when he hit 40". I have priceless video of his face during the ride. - Mouse4life  1681.4 #104 8:30AM
Isn't seeing your kiddos face on attractions the 1st time amazing?! ::sigh:: hearing that made me feel all warm and gushy inside! thank you for sharing! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 10:39AM
Thanks for the Trivia! So glad my son finally likes to ride this. Lost count of the number of times I would wait in line with my 2 kids and then my son would back out. I didn't feel comfortable leaving him alone so I didn't get to ride. 😞 ✨ - IBelieveInFairies  707.0 #285 8:31AM
OMGoodness I feel your pain! It's one of my favorites an my 6 year old never wants to ride with me. I look forward to solo trips for just that reason! Hopefully both our kiddos will learn to love it soon! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 10:41AM
One of my favorites! - WishIWereThere  303.1 #926 9:10AM
Mine too! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 11:20AM

::high fives you:: thanks my friend! - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 11:21AM
This has to rank #1 favorite ride for me. As for the classic rides that is. Reason for that is my family use to go every year to Disneyland and my mom can't ride the rides (she here very sick) so my dad rode every ride with me. He passed away when I was 15 (quit a few years ago) but this is the one ride that he likes the most and every time I ride if I still get tears in my eyes cause I know he is screaming his head off up there with me. Thank you for these great posts. They bring back some great memories. ;) - 2mousears  16.1 #8510 9:25AM
This made me cry! I'm so sorry for your loss but overjoyed you shared this and that my posts bring back happy memories for you! :) - Duchess_SMK  6501.5 #19 5:49PM
I didn't mean to make anyone sad with my post. I do love all of you factual posts. Thank you again :) - 2mousears  16.1 #8510 10:05PM
I still vaguely remember the commercial they played for it's opening. Awesome commercial back then to a 5 year old, kinda cheesy now. http://tinyurl.com/8rlpd7k - Grindcore  568.8 #374 9:26AM
Thank you. I always look forward to your posts. I have 4 trips planned between October 4 and NYE. I really hope to meet you on one of these trips. I will DM you this time πŸ˜ƒ - LaPearleNoir  2250.7 #73 9:26AM

Thanks Duchess. I love this attraction, especially during fireworks. - NickDoubleyew  1094.0 #175 9:31AM
Bryce Canyon National park is so unusually beautiful. It nice to have it added to Disneyland. And Tony did a great job rendering it for guests to enjoy - E-Ticket  1472.5 #120 9:31AM
This one is my favorite attraction! I'm sad that it goes down in January. Can't ride it now and then it closes for a long time (9+months) :( Enjoy it now while you can! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2579.8 #58 9:42AM
This is one of Kyles(my son) favorite rides..Last week during the Fantasmic AP event my whole family did this ride 4 times in a row without getting off - JollyRoger5  3950.4 #39 9:53AM
By far Bellas favorite ride. She even talks about it in preschool. This attraction has brought me so many great memories over the years. Thanks again for the quality post SMK. Its Sunday and I've been schooled :) - RickChavez  3671.6 #43 10:03AM
What inspired him to create an attraction based off the Bryce Canyon-look was when he found an article in National Geographic saying that this scenic view "should be an attraction at a Disney park" and so, he designed one - BaseballMickey  7890.3 #11 10:50AM
One of my faves! - ScarfGirl  644.8 #323 10:53AM
BTMRR is still one of my favorites,from the famous goat, to the stalagmites and stalactites and Nature's Wonderland pools. My most memorable experience at Disneyland is still the time my sister and I rode BTMRR during the fireworks. That was an unforgettable moment of Disney magic as we were going up the second lift before the goat's turn. It felt like sprinkles of color were within reach in the night sky. - Alicewhoareyou  2708.7 #54 10:53AM
Another awesome post! Thank you - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1853.0 #98 10:59AM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

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  0.1 #105866 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  6439.5 #20 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 May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. 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 May 9, 2016 5:42PM
