Hi all, Hoping someone might know the answer to this before I start a long process of phone calls. While at DL three weeks ago, I became suddenly very ill and ended up having emergency surgery and spending 10 days in a random hospital in Anaheim. (We live in Arizona and had to ship our children home; it was awful.) I am now home and at the beginning of a very long recovery process. Unfortunately,  More...

Call them ASAP and they will put all passes on a medical hold. Ours have been on hold since July 2011. I call every 3 or 4 months to check on them, and have them annotate in the records that we will eventually get them out. We still aren't done with surgeries and such. We had the monthly plan. So we still had to pay for the remaining payments, but when they come out of hold we will have 8 months no payments. The effective date is when you call. Not when the incident took place. - Sugarbuzz  335.8 #827 3:36PM
I know what you meant. When I asked on MW the situation hadn't been brought up yet. We thought we were going to have to just "eat" that money gone. Having the tickets in hold has been really helpful in giving us something to look forward to as well. Keeps our spirits up. Just not sure when we will get them out. - Sugarbuzz  335.8 #827 3:49PM
It can't hurt to call. They won't refund but maybe they will suspend them. Good luck and I hope you have a fast recovery. - SueBayou  2019.2 #98 3:00PM
Princess Duckie, I am sorry about your MIL. That is so very sad. However, I am glad Disneyland was reasonable about the passes. I always wondered what would happen in a situation like that. I am sorry you had to be the one to find out. :( - Melody  21.1 #7858 11:20AM
I'm so sorry you went through that. How awful. I hope you get everything worked out and heal quickly. - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #442 1:56PM

Where is the FP kiosk for RSR located? Also, how many riders per car? Thanks, MW!

FPs for RSR are by the It's A Bugs Life theatre. They are usually all gone by 10 AM - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 6:54PM
Near entrance to bugs land and 6 passengers. - azcam08  212.8 #1988 6:54PM
Right at Bugs Land...actually, left at Bugs Land - misschurro  9880.4 #12 6:57PM
You will see the line long before the kiosk, wrapping around Carthay and down the street. - ShariRenee  14735.0 #6 6:58PM

Is it silly of me to think that DCA will be any less crowded next Friday during the Mickey Halloween party? Or will it actually be more crowded, because everyone is thinking the same thing, or couldn't get tix to the party?

it will most definitely be more crowded. - nicoleface  1753.2 #119 5:07PM
Parking is a challenge and believe it or not, people with AP forget there's a party and go and get stuck at DCA. And if its sold out, the party will be comfortable crowded, as I like to label it - MarshaMouse  5058.1 #35 5:37PM

Hello MWers, What's the secret to getting on RSR with the shortest wait possible? I'm hearing horror stories of 2-hour lines, and that's just for the FP. We're going next week, and I've been watching the wait times this week and they've ranged from 90-380 minutes! I even extended our trip an extra day today because I heard some people went and couldn't even get on. We have APs but haven't been si  More...

I waited 20 mins by doing the single rider line during World of Color! - LillyBelle  77.1 #4265 5:26PM

The Little Mermaid ride has been closed all day until tomorrow, but someone keeps posting wait times. Just FYI, it will reopen tomorrow, according to the CM there. :)

We were told the ride would remain closed until Friday by a CM. - pattyrocks  266.6 #1337 9:00PM
Yes I've also been told Friday - stratdad  291.9 #1104 9:04PM

Oops, yes, I meant Friday. I've been here for 6 days now so my days are all messed up! Back to reality today though. :( - Melody  21.1 #7858 8:20AM

Forgive me if this has already been, um, pointed out but my daughters noticed that the guy in this painting in the TOT lobby is holding a staff that is a hand with the signature Disney two-finger point. Cool touch, huh?

Hi MouseWaiters! I joined MouseWait two years ago, but haven't been on in a while. My 13-year-old daughter just joined yesterday but is hesitant to comment because she's afraid people will "yell" at her if she makes a mistake. You won't, right? I haven't been on in a long, long time so I'm sure it's a whole new crowd. Please be nice to her. Her name is pixiedust13. Thank you!

Nah we won't yell at her. We like to have fun, but we have lots of grace for young ones that have fun and can take seasoned advice well - Villescas8  607.0 #390 8:50PM
We are all warm and welcoming :) I have been a member for a year and haven't been on in over 3 months, so I know how you feel! Have her comment so we can all give her a MW welcome!

Since our daughters are all Words With Friends addicts,we thought this was a good way to tell them where we're taking them later this month! We haven't been in two years!

What a great idea! :)

Hi MouseWaiters! I just got an iPhone 4 for my birthday yesterday and I'm wondering what kind of case to get. I'm liking the Otterbox, but it seems so bulky. I usually carry mine in my purse. The Apple Store guy recommended a hard snap case from InCase. Any advice would be appreciated! BTW, I think I got the guy to download MouseWait. He was really impressed when I told him what a genius app it w  More...

I like the otterbox. - tinkfan  196.3 #2204 8:07AM
Congrats on your B-day, iPhone 4 rocks, just got ours couple weeks ago and lurve them, way better than the 3g/3gs - MrBlue  232.3 #1725 8:09AM
I had an otterbox and I loved it but my daughter broke the belt clip case so I am now trying a Seidio case it is just as bulky but has a locking clip. I dont mind bulky to keep me from having to dish out $800 to replace it! - MedievalMickey  699.0 #338 8:33AM
I wouldn't go with a hard snap, they are not forgiving if you drop the phone. I've been through three IPhones this year (yes, I'm a clutz) and the Bestbuy guy told me it's because I had hard cases. Soft cases absorb shock better. - CAWA  36.2 #5942 8:36AM

Aw, you do? Cool! How was your trip? I actually had to check in a few times in the middle of the chaos of the holiday break specifically to see if PeteandConnie actually made it there, and how their trip was going! Saw some great pictures, so I'm guessing it was awesome...except for the crazy crowds. My daughter's friend went for only two days and was shut out. :-( - Melody  21.1 #7858 2:31PM

Hello MW! I've been wondering, did the parks do anything special to commemorate Walt's birthday on Sunday?

anyone? in the past they gave out free cake. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #106 6:53AM

I kept reading on here about TimTams during BLGs visit and saw them at the store today. Is this them? They were sooo good. My kids devoured them after school tho. BTW, Can we count this as being Disney-related since it's BLG-related?

What store did u score those in? - JimW  1074.1 #213 6:54PM
Yea, that's the real deal! Good find. - Zooter  1414.4 #152 6:54PM
I wonder if World Market would carry that brand? I figured the Pepperidge Farm ones were somewhat Americanized. What brand are the ones at Target? - Melody  21.1 #7858 7:32PM

Does anybody know if you can take a collage made in Diptic and import it into iPhoto and make a 4X6 print of it? I'd like to do that to include in my cards but not spend a fortune. Or can you do it simply in iPhoto? TIA for any suggestions/advice!

if it create a jpg file you should be able to just pull it off and get a print. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #106 6:38PM
Yea the collage essentially becomes one photo that you can then print. I don't know about the resolution though, just make sure everything is at the highest resolution and you'll be fine. - Zooter  1414.4 #152 6:40PM
OK, thanks guys! I'll try the Diptic thing, and if that doesn't work, I'll use Walmart as a backup plan. - Melody  21.1 #7858 7:29PM
That's good to know. I never really thought about it. - PrettyPixie  760.3 #306 7:31PM
