Good morning! This day in Disney history, Oct 25th, 2000. 30 lucky Haunted Mansion fans dine in the popular Disneyland attraction as part of a $2000 a plate Fantasy Dinner offered by the park. According to doombuggies.com: "These lucky guests were given Disney's famous white-glove treatment & an evening to remember. In addition to the Mansion meal, attendees were invited to a private lunch @ Club 33 & were given tickets to a "Disney Divas" event the following evening. The night of the Mansion dinner, guests were picked up from their hotel by zombie chauffeurs & carried in stretch limousines through the back alleys of Disneyland Park until they ended up at the fog-shrouded gates of the Haunted Mansion. Greeted by a number of guest ambassadors, the diners wind their way through the deserted Mansion queue, noticing that each of them had a personalized tombstone emerging from the fog. Jack Skellington himself was the emcee for the evening & the diners found themselves eating alongside surpise guests Imagineer Rolly Crump, who shared stories of the Mansion's creation & Alice Davis, widow of Imagineer Marc Davis (& Disney legend in her own right.) Throughout the evening, Jack's beau Sally played classic rock tunes on a harp, & other characters provided ghoulish entertainment throughout the evening. @ the end of the meal, diners were presented w/their own death certificates: "Death by Chocolate." After dinner, the guests were taken through the Haunted Mansion - first in Doom Buggies as usual, and next by foot, w/the lights on, in a rare backstage tour. Finally, another trip was offered in the Doom Buggies - although this time, costumed entertainers hid amongst the shadows to provide unexpected scares. After a relaxed trip back to the hotel, each guest arrived in their room to find their customized tombstone waiting on the bed - along with a personalized charger created by Elisabete Gomes" (pictured below).

According to doombuggies.com dinner was served in "The Great Hall (the Changing Portrait corridor) where a long dining table stood set for thirty and heaped with dozens upon dozens of dead flowers. Each setting was graced with a severed Mickey hand holding a menu for the evening." - Duchess_SMK  6501.3 #19 9:05AM

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



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 #325 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7433 11:53PM

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 #105863 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  6439.4 #20 8:10PM
