Hey everybody. If your in So Cal be careful for the next couple of days with the downpours we're going go have. If you going to the parks be safe coming and leaving and while your at the resort. And if your in the hills or burn areas our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sorry didn't make it up late last night. I love reading all your trip times. I wish I was close enough to visit weekly. Last year I did a company trip in the spring that my hubby, girls and two grandkids surprised me and we spent the weekend together and all flew home together then our August grandkids trip which is always atleast 7 days but is perfect when it is 10. Then hubby and I drove down for a week in oct. So we generally go atleast 2 times for 7-10 days and sometimes we make a 3rd or 4th trip. If all goes well with my daughters follow up we will be heading to WDW in march for a week. It's all booked, just keeping fingers crossed - mmddgp  1621.1 #2 3:25PM

Evening and welcome to UpLate with MouseWait this Saturday night. I glad to be hosting and hope you're having a great weekend. So with the announcement this week about Disney Max Pass what do you think about it? You will be able to get fast passes on the Disneyland app. You must be in the park and no advance getting them. Of course it comes with a price, $10.00 a day per person. So come on in and  More...

Ok, I already have photopass on my AP, so I don't need that MaxPass feature.  I have 2 legs that work pretty well, I can walk to get a paper fastpass, so I don't need that MaxPass feature.  $10 a day is basically a beer and I'm not willing to give that up.  Did nobody watch WALL-E...what's next...mobility scooters for all or moving sidewalks so people don't have to walk anywhere?   - Linzee  1926.0 #100 9:51PM

clawton yes you can start pestering me and Tay wasn't able to go.  She had to be in the hospital for close to a month.  Her Drs and I had to break the news to her, she was crushed, but she's better now.  Things happen that change your path, it's all about making the best of your situation and she did.  She was at school when the band returned from the trip congratulating them and getting hugs.  I'm super proud of her.

Clark W. Griswold is my name and parking a bajillion miles away is my game. 😜 - OhanaPhoto  6992.5 #20 11:18PM

Hi! We've been having some discussion about it. First, if you're not an AP and you are at Disneyland for the day, the $10 fee may be worth it. First, if you take just a couple pictures via Photopass (like in front of the Castle, Partners Statue or even with Mickey), the price for the digital downloads of those pictures are already covered from that fee. Β From there, you can use the app all you want for that day. Β Also, if its crowded, you may not want to walk across the park to get a FP, or maybe you want to claim them ahead of time for later that day. Β Now there's a lot of info still not available yet (like pricing for APs) but its a great idea and things could change.Β  - BaseballMickey  8704.2 #14 9:35PM
Thanks for the input. Yes pricing for those who have AP's still to be announced  - Goofytom  4141.1 #43 10:13PM
Thank you .  We all chose how we spend our money.  I don't drink, but I will paying for certain conveniences.  Good to have choices.BaseballMickey - Taunton  2427.5 #71 4:36PM
As an "out of towner" I see the value in this with the photopass. I liked to prepurchase the photopass plus for $70 so to use this for $10 a day if you just wanted to use it for photopass could be worth it. I would think that only one in the party would need it. The issues in the fastpasses for us is the lack of wifi. It's a big ordeal for us to get a data package that works in the U.S. - MJmouse  349.0 #758 8:09AM
I'm going to try it. Just out of curiosity, to see how it works and to try something new. I don't get to go often, so maybe it will be worth it for us. We'll see! - happiestplace  421.3 #589 5:03PM

Ok since you all put up with my Rose Parade posts here's one from the parade this morning. Walked down and got to the route around 10:00am. Was at the end of the parade where the bands turn off and go to Victory Park to get their In-N-Out lunch. Floats continue on Sierra Madre Blvd to the post parade area. Did manage to get a shot of my Trojans band

Not this year but maybe next parade. It's really amazing how the crowds react. Especially when you're shoveling. Did you enjoy the parade? Was it the first time in person?  @@JenGwen323  - Goofytom  4141.1 #43 3:13PM
Scott and I enjoyed our first time viewing it live. I loved seeing the floats in action, but I think we'll go back to just viewing the floats parked the next day. I love to get an up close perspective.  - JenGwen323  2190.7 #85 6:22PM

#NEWSDisneyRoseParade. Ok so this is my last post sharing the Disney and Rose Parade tradition. In 2013 Disney wowed the crowd with its entry titled "Destination: Cars Land". The 125 feet long float showcased the road side town of Radiator Springs.

#NEWSDisneyRoseParade In 2006 Disney broke another Rose Parade record with the longest float at 150 feet in length. Titled "The Most Magical Celebration on Earth ". The float celebrates Disney Parks around the world.

So does Disney enter a float every year? I am sorry I usually don't watch the parade.😬 - RadiatorSprings4Ever  3048.7 #53 2:26PM
Me either. I don't remember the last time I've seen the whole parade. - sultan  219.7 #1858 2:33PM

You can watch it on replay on channel 5; they usually run it 2-3 times. And it is worth seeing it live at least once; TV doesn't quite capture it the same, and it can't capture the smell at all. πŸŒΊπŸŒΈπŸŒΌπŸŒ·πŸŒΉπŸ’ - redsoxcarlos  4925.6 #31 4:21PM

So is anyone in the parks that wants to share how the crowds are at noon. From wait times DCA doesn't look to busy yet but DL looks to be getting crazy. M&F shows closed.

#NewsDisneyRoseParade. Here's another fun fact for Disney and the Rose Parade. All the photos I've posted are from So in 1966 Walt Disney along with Mickey Mouse serve as Grand Marshall of the Tournament of Rose Parade. In the crowd is a young John Lasseter, future Jungle Cruse operator and Pixar co-founder

#NEWSDisneyRoseParade. Do you remember when Disney Resort presented a parade float inspired by the parks newest attraction "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror". The 2004 float stands nearly 100 feet tall "the tallest float in the parade's history" and is titled "A Sudden Drop in Pitch".
