I live in good old Washington state, but my sister lives in OC so I get to visit at least once a year. I have three kiddos that keep me super busy. I'm an elementary school teacher as well.

So is the grace period over for young MWers when they turn 18? I don't know if I'm just cranky tonight, but oh my!

My husband and I are possibly going to Hawaii this fall without the kids. Neither one of us have been before. We want to experience the beauty of Hawaii, snorkel, and visit the volcanoes. We are looking for hotel and island recommendations. Thanks so much!

I looked up DVC and they were quite pricey! It looked beautiful, however! - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 11:24PM
Oahu is amazing, there's Pearl Harbor and Waikiki and the Dole Plantation. If you end up there I recommend the Paradise Cove Luau, it's a fun experience. Also, take a tour of Ioloni Palace, the only royal residence in the US. Plus, Hawaii 5-O films on Oahu! - CaliGirlNiki  32.6 #6190 12:11AM
Oahu is not my favorite, but there is so much to do like CaliGirl mentioned. Try renting a car and driving up to North Shore....besides the Dole Plantation there's Kualoa Ranch. LOST and a lot of other TV shows and movies were filmed there. You can horseback ride, take a ATV or bus tour...and it's beautiful. There's also the Polynesian Cultural Center which is a fascinating look at the Pacific Island cultures. - Gia  802.2 #276 10:45PM
Sounds fabulous. It's definitely not a cheap trip! - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 10:50PM

Seattle to Long Beach.....159 dollars! I think that since my husband is taking a ten day hunting, well actually camping trip, I should head to the OC to celbrate my sister's 40th birthday with her at the Happiest Place on Earth in December.

Sounds like a great plan - Disneymomblessedx3  363.1 #710 6:35PM

In all seriousness, can someone with a higher rank let me know why my last post was reported? I try to be a good MW, and I would like feedback. ;)

What was the post? - KAA  357.4 #731 9:12PM
It was a pumpkin carving of a Disney character. - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 9:14PM
The guidelines for picture posts (if that's what it was) is that the picture adds value to the lounge and is Disney related. So if it was a pic post did it meet those guidelines? - BLG  1048.9 #209 9:15PM
I think so, because it was funny, at least to me! (and Disney related which I thought people might like to guess who it was) - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 9:18PM

Just want you all to know that we MWs that live thousands of miles away are extremely jealous of your nightly meetups and frolicking in the Park. Just saying.

That's why I'm hosting the Mouse wait Christmas gift exchange. Are you guys interested in joining in on it with us? -Jordan - tonyjord3  230.8 #1724 11:43PM
Online gift exchanges make me leary. Look how many people take from Locker RAKs! Maybe if there are guidelines, like need at least so many points, etc. It's awesome you're taking this on though! - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 11:48PM

Who else wants to be pathetic and ask for friends with me? If we keep it in one post, we can add each other. This is for those poor souls that aren't being sought after. :) I'll start.....add me!

I'll be your friend!! :D - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #280 11:31PM

Don't think oh it as being sought after. Met ups, chance met ups, and RAKs just helps make a lot of friends. You' ll be there sometime or another. This post here may be the tipping point. Any how. You got a friend in me. Lol. I couldn't resist, but seriously hi new friend. }:) - Evilstitch  338.5 #802 5:44AM
I live I'm Washington state, so meet ups for me will be rare, unfortunately...the lounge is all I got. - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 4:20PM

What are the qualifications for being a Plaid? Do you have to work for DL for a certain period of time? Do they make more than most cast members? See, everyone wants to know who is with the plaid. I want to know about the plaid. :)

Quite simple, any checked cloth pattern qualifies as a plaid. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #192 8:11AM
Really? No one knows, or is it a secret? - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 8:10AM
All that money to reseve a plaid and they get paid the same. It looks like such a prestigious position that should be paid triple. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #192 8:26AM
they can accept gratuities... I've heard some have been tipped quite handsomly - CaliCanuck  534.4 #441 8:32AM

Is there a Christmas party that you pay extra for too? I know they have one at WDW, but don't remember there being one at DL when we were there for the holidays a few years back.

And if so, do you think it's worth it? - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2896 10:15PM

So when you all joined MW, what was happening in the Lounge at that time? When I did, I believe it was Goofyjoe, was debating with others how it was not a ride, but an attraction. I loved how passionate he was! what was it for you, a popcorn bucket flood of posts, a sundae?

I can't begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed the Halloween pictures! Since I only make it to DL once a year, I haven't been able to go in October. I am amazed at how cool it is! Thanks to Mousewait I now know, and will plan for next year. Keep the pictures coming! (But I need to actually see the decorations.....anyone know what I mean?)

So my little boy, who isn't even 2 and a half yet, is tall enough to go on the Matterhorn. It floors me you only have to be 35 inches for that attraction. I wonder if it will change with the new bobsleds.

Wow! Has he gone on it before and did he like it? - princessVanessa  384.3 #660 10:49PM
I think they will keep it the same :/ The new bobsleds do have lap bars now..which makes them safer :) - Storybrooke  681.4 #341 10:49PM
My 3 year old went on Matterhorn last year and by the time we where done she had slide a good bit out of her original spot. Scarred the heck out of me. She loved it though. What amazes me is she is tall enough for Matterhorn but not jumping jellyfish. - Sasha513  286.6 #1114 11:10PM
