Well folks, you have all been great! Going to close up my account. Starting next month, I will have no income. So our AP's will cease to exist on Oct 15th. My boyfriend and 17 year old daughter and I are very, very upset. I've tried to look for work, but no one wants to hire a disabled person. I've applied for long term disability, but that can take up to 3-6 months to get started. I've never been so scared in all my life. Going to Disneyland with our passes for 3 years was a blessing. A blessing that we will have to give up. Now worried about a place to live and food. I'm not too proud to ask for help from the state. So take care all you Mouse Waiter's! I will miss you!

Definitely check into section 8 housing as soon as you can. Most towns (not sure where you live) in CA, at least, have a community action organization. They tend to move much faster than the government when it comes to immediate needs such as clothing, food, and shelter. They also typically have a contact that can put you in touch with a welfare agent. Disability can take a very long time, and most claims are denied (mine was). Fight for it!!! It's worth it. Also, check with your local edd to see if they have any programs for putting people with a disability to work. There was a program near me where the govt. Would pay the first 6 months salary as well as tax incentives. I do feel your pain, and will be praying hard for you. Sorry for the ridiculously long post, but hopefully something helps. - LittleAprilShowers  587.7 #372 11:18PM
Thank you April! - baby1218  264.6 #1291 11:55PM
Nor a problem. I feel your pain. And dont you worry. Disney and MW will both still be here when things turn around for you. - LittleAprilShowers  587.7 #372 10:55AM
I'm very sorry to hear that you are going through hard times. I was unemployed for the past 6 months, and believe me I know how hard it is to find a job right now. The market and economy are making it real tough. My advice to you is the following: stay positive and stay strong. You will make it through these challenges! In the meantime, I will be praying for you to find a wonderful job! I look forward to seeing you on here again soon! @Mermaid- You have a lot of growing up and learning to do...shame on you! - MariFICENT  195.2 #2132 12:13AM
It's true that no one wants to hear poor me from a stranger, but many of us have formed friendships akin to that of siblings. If my sister were going through this, I would want to know so I could console her, advise her, and help her if possible. I'm sorry that you don't feel like a part of this family yet. Once you open up your heart to others and experience true compassion, I bet you won't regret it. - - LittleAprilShowers  587.7 #372 8:06PM
I think sometimes people lose sight that DL is a luxury expense. I'm fortunate to be able to still afford AP passes for myself and family. You sound like you're making the right decision for your family. DL is not going anywhere anytime soon. I'm sure you'll be back when you get back on your feet. - MainStUSA  115.9 #3402 2:02PM
@baby1218 I am so sorry you are going through hard times... I know as I have been through it and still in it that it is hard to see better days when all seems to be going wrong but I am a true believer that when one door closes another door opens .... something will come your way!! you are in my thoughts and prayers.... dont leave MW it will help as distraction and maybe even at times brighten up your day.... Don't give up !!! - DISNYLV  176.9 #2368 12:54AM
I agree about not closing your mw account. You don't have to be able to go to Disneyland to be a part of the community. If you need some time to yourself just take a break but please don't delete your account. I will say a prayer for your family. I pray things will get better and that many blessing will come your way. - aidensmama  340.3 #747 1:13AM
I'm so sorry to hear about your struggles. I pray something positive comes your way. - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #409 10:51PM
Keep your head up! Hope things turn around for you sooner than later! - disneykimmi  117.0 #3378 11:18PM
I'm sorry to hear all of thisπŸ˜”. Keep your chin up and stay strong. I'll say a special one for youπŸ™ - ScubaSteve028  835.5 #237 11:49PM
Thank you very much. - baby1218  264.6 #1291 11:50PM
Best of luck to you. Not sure where you live but if in so cal try one stops (work source) centers for Internet & job development, 211 for assistance referrals. Calworks & CalFresh for gvmt. cash aid & food stamps. Good luck & remember that no one should be embarrassed for asking for assistance; you're helping your family! - pixiedreamer  231.5 #1661 10:28AM
Oh boy, Romney is going to have a field day with you. Hope it turns around for you. - Katrayher  781.0 #262 10:30AM
This is not a political issue. It's a real person with a real life problem and this family needs encouragement and positive thoughts. Wishing you and yours the best. 😊 - WishIWereThere  314.4 #884 10:50AM
I agree with wishIwerethere. What a horrible thing to say. This poor gal needs our support not some stupid political comment. Now with that said......my prayers and thoughts will be with you and your family during this tough time. I hope it all works out soon so your family doesn't have to deal with this unimaginable stress for long. - UmFromUmbridge  258.4 #1343 11:01AM
Wah! I said I hope it turns around for them dang! You guys need to lighten up. - Katrayher  781.0 #262 6:55PM
You and your family are in our prayers! Have you tried AAA.com? Click on careers and they are usually hiring for a bunch of positions. I also heard Amtrak was hiring, maybe check out their website too. Good luck! - kss4tink  218.0 #1837 1:55PM
This is true, my brother works for CalTrain aka Amtrak, they are hiring. - mrscttlemstr  317.2 #871 8:18PM
Thank you to everyone for your warm wishes. I've started to break down a couple of times today, but then I get that little notification sound on my phone, and it's another well wisher. I even want to thank TLM. She just doesn't want me to feel sorry for myself. I don't, I just feel lost, and I feel like I disappointed my daughter. We can't go to the Halloween Party this year, and when I told her, she started to cry. I felt so worthless. The first time in my life I haven't had an income. It just makes you feel 2 inches tall. Well, again, thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, suggestions, and warm wishes. - baby1218  264.6 #1291 7:45PM
If you live close to DL...this might be the light you need in your life? They hire disabled people :) God bless - mrscttlemstr  317.2 #871 8:21PM
Don't be too proud to ask for assistance if your family is struggling to eat, have utilities and maintain a residence. It's called transitional aid because it's there for people who are transitioning in their lives, and it sounds like you are doing just that. Start at this website www.benefitscalwin.org It will link you up to your county's social service dept. Some counties accept applications via the Internet. I'm a social worker in Ventura county, and our county does. - tballzz  558.2 #395 8:06PM
Remember that God will never give you anything you can't handle. You (and your daughter) have the strength to get through this. Don't be afraid to ask for help (MWers have provided great resources for you!), and when you're back on your feet, I'm sure that you and your daughter will be ready and willing to help others. God bless you--you are strong and you will find your way. There is light in even the darkest corners of life: love and compassion for others :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  648.9 #332 8:33PM
Dear Baby1218--I know exactly how you feel about letting your child down. My husband was out of a job for almost a year back in 2001. We struggled to stay afloat but we let our kids know what was going on. (We even had to cancel our visit to Disneyland that year and didn't make it back again until 2006. )At the time they were 11, 9 and 3. They were amazing and even though we couldn't do all the fun things we had wanted, we were together. I believe we learned about sacrifice and love for one another. We are a close family now and our kids are very kind and considerate of others. They know what it is like to go without and they are very thankful for what they have. Keep your chin up and hug your sweet angel. She will love you forever no matter what. ;) - imjustsayin111  247.8 #1450 8:36PM
Stay around so people can stay in touch. Best wishes to you! - templeclan  54.8 #4778 10:51PM
It'll all work out, Walt had a lot of bumps in his road before reaching his paradise, but he did :) - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3631 11:05PM
@baby1218 Keep your head held high! Something great will come along. Believe it! Praying for you and your family. - BelleLuver  47.7 #5074 10:51PM
im really sorry to hear that i hope things get better for you! hopefully when all is well we see you on here again :) well all still be here - Hendizl  2873.6 #52 10:54PM
Thank you for your kind words. - baby1218  264.6 #1291 10:54PM
Times are tough. Don't give up on looking for another job. Stay positive - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 10:54PM
No reason to close your account. Believe you me, having an outlet to escape online from those troubles IRL is always a relief on the stress levels. Best of luck to you and your family. - Dipper_Pines  123.5 #3241 10:55PM
You keep your chin up and hang in there, and better days will come to you! - debbiev  1470.6 #126 10:56PM
I won't have an iPhone or Internet connection. Or a car for that matter, and if I can't pay rent, my daughter and I won't have a home. Thanks to you all for your warm wishes. - baby1218  264.6 #1291 10:57PM
Um, kinda rude comments? :/Good luck Baby. Best wishes to you and hope life gets moving your way. - templeclan  54.8 #4778 11:13PM
Not dramatic, honest and sad. I'm very sorry I will prayfor you - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3631 11:16PM
Thank you templeclan and PiratePrincess. And @Mermaid, I pray that you never have to go through what I'm going through. - baby1218  264.6 #1291 11:46PM
I'm sorry TLM had to chime in with that comment. Maybe they should raise the age requirement around here. - ScubaSteve028  835.5 #237 11:51PM
No problem, my ap expired in march :/ we're in it together ;) - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3631 11:51PM
@Steve, there are a lot children in here. @ Pirate, thanks for being with me. It makes it easier. - baby1218  264.6 #1291 11:54PM
I really wish there was a way I could help you. Please contact your local churches. Many churches can help you find a place that will help with food and clothing at the very least. - aidensmama  340.3 #747 1:20AM
No problem, we're a disney family right? We all share the good moments I think we should all share the less fun as well - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3631 10:35AM
Who hurt you TLM? - vincentchase1  672.9 #321 10:48AM
@TLM- Who are you to judge and say how a person should react to a situation?! Your experience and the way you reacted was YOU! But she isn't you! We are all individuals and react to things differently. You were fortunate enough in your experience that it didn't fall on you to support a whole household, and that your mother was able to work. That's obviously not the case in this situation. I don't think she wants people to feel pity for her and she's not asking for handouts. She's sharing her situation with a community she has become close to. And I don't think us offering prayers and support means that we pity her at all. Quite the contrary, I am impressed because obviously she is willing to give up anything she must to provide the basics for her family! That shows true strength and courage! - MariFICENT  195.2 #2132 4:26PM
TLM, I'm pretty sure I read in your reply to someone that no one needs to hear a poor me story. Must apply to everyone but you. - ima-pirateswife  846.2 #235 4:42PM
Sorry to hear that Best of luck to you - thumpur  325.8 #819 12:04AM
Sometimes when the days are the darkest, that is when you need a little ray of sunshine and maybe if you can keep your account here, you can find that sunshine, even if online at the library or wherever you find a computer. So many people are hurting right now and I know how scary it is for you and everyone out of work. Don't give up on getting disability, fight it all the way. In the meantime, think of all the things you can do, and see if any of those can turn into income. If it means moving to a city where there are more opportunities for disabled people, don't be afraid. And don't be afraid to ask for help from your church, friends, where ever you need to, and one day I am sure you will be right side up again. Praying for you and your family. God bless. - secretagentangel  8058.8 #11 12:11AM
Best of luck to you and your family. Just keep going...don't give up and know that everything happens for a reason. I will keep you in my prayers, and I hope that this moment of your life will be short lived and the next great moment will come around soon. - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #256 12:14AM
Best of luck to you. Have you looked into WorkSource? I wish you well. - PrincessKristin  780.8 #263 12:32AM
I am so sorry your going through this tough time! I hope you stuck around Mw Atleast! You and your family are in my prayers! God has a plan and he won't let you fall :) - BubbaLoo  870.6 #228 12:58AM
I wish you luck. I know how you feel. I had to have back surgery and was told to apply for benefits but was denied because they said I would be able to work after the surgery, but now it's hard to find a job that won't be to hard on my back and when I do apply they seem to lose interest as soon as I mention my surgery to explain why I haven't been working. Just be patient and budget carefully. - jmotajr  7.8 #13715 1:13AM
My parents are going through the same kind of thing right now. Waiting to hear from permanent disability... Unfortunately it takes forever! They also will have no income. You just have to take it one day at a time. You know there has to be rain before there can be a rainbow. Get through the storm and something great will be waiting for you. Best wishes and lots of pixie dust being sent your way ! - PoppinsWoo  342.0 #742 9:43AM
So sorry. We were in a similar situation many many years ago, but we emerged from that whole thing stronger then ever. I wish the best for you and your daughter. Take care and please come back when you can. - Linzee  1402.4 #138 10:22AM
I'm so sorry to hear that! I do hope something positive happens for you soon! Good luck! And assistance is there for those who need it. Use it and hold your head up high! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #39 10:23AM
Sorry to hear about your struggles, keep your head up and I wish you well! - MoniqueLovelle  10.8 #11047 10:41AM
Praying for you and your family! You are not alone, we're all here praying and believing for better days for you ((big hug)) - Luvvdisney  384.3 #624 11:41AM
I'm sorry to hear about your struggles but why close your MW account too? - MrsMears  217.3 #1849 12:32PM
I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. Your in my thoughts and prayers . - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #685 1:57PM
I'm do sorry to hear about your troubles. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Something to consider is going to a local parish that gives food to people in need. Where I live, our church gives food to locals in need. They don't have to be parishioners or anything. Just a thought. I hope all will be well soon! - ima-pirateswife  846.2 #235 4:46PM
Sending you pixie dust! - DisneyVacationLover  506.4 #452 6:59PM
Remember, you're more than just your job/paycheck! You'll get through this tough time! - mswendybe  193.7 #2154 7:52PM
Let's try to remember that this is supposed to be a positve place where we can support each other...my prayers are with you and all those who are struggling...know that you are in my family's prayers - montanadj  255.5 #1365 7:54PM
My boyfriend of 7 years has been out of work for over a year and it is very hard because I don't make enough for the both of us. We made the very hard choice to move back in with our parents. You are not alone and I hope that you will find something. I don't see why Disney would not hire you :) Always worth a shot! - tiggertwin  332.9 #778 8:00PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge.

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.2 #169 7:44PM
I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1024 7:03PM

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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  643.7 #335 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7586 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #521 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  183.5 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1024 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8058.8 #11 1:41PM
