Hey Michael, no need to add me. This is such an awesome RAK and I just wanted to say what an honor it is to have an opening day CM from EPCOT among us! You're a great CM and an amazing person. I look forward to meeting you someday! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #66 4:58PM
Well-said:-) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:02PM
No need to add me to the RAK. I just wanted to comment to say that this is very sweet of you and i also just wanted to say hi. I've heard many wonderful things about you! Hope to see you on here more often:-) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 4:41PM
I forgot to mention my favorite epcot memory..lol..my fave memory was sitting with my family on our last night of vacation on the benches watching illuminations. After it was over,we sat there just tearing up and hugging before we got up to leave. We get a little emotional on our last night of a disney vacation:-( lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 4:52PM
Beautiful memory Stephanie! Epcot is so beautiful and there are so many memories thanks to illuminations and the candlelight processional, etc. It's easy to not want to return to reality after a magical vacation with such fabulous moments! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 5:11PM
Aww thank you:-) you're so right about wanting to return right away. i know you must feel like that all the time. I love how you go on frequent trips and that you can't stay away for long. It's so hard to stay away from there when we make such beautiful memories with our loved ones:-) i can't wait to go see the candlelight processional at epcot one year. Is it really beautiful? I heard amazing things about it - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:17PM
It is beautiful! I don't have many great photos but I can dig some up. If the holidays and Christmas carols are your thing then it's a must see! We had a wonderful time during the last one. We met up with Uppityempress that night! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 5:29PM
Yes! The holidays and christmas are my thing...i'm already counting down the days till the holidays..i get very excited like a little kid around this time:-) lol..that's very nice you got the chance to meet up with michael! I would love to meet him one day. I have heard nothing but great things about him on here. Hopefully,you'll get to see him on your upcoming trip=) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:36PM
Thank you for posting the pic of the candlelight processional john! So nice of you:-) I really appreciate that - mickeynme  178.1 #52 7:01PM
Don't mention it! I'll see if I can find a few more from an old digital camera I have. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 7:09PM
No worries! If you can,that would be great. If not,that's fine too. I appreciate what you did post. I showed my family too and they thought it was beautiful. Ao nice to see it. Thanks! Have a great night=) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 7:14PM
*So nice to see it - mickeynme  178.1 #52 7:58PM
Welcome back Uncle Umpity, we have missed you. My favorite memory is the year we first rode Soarin, I cried at the beauty of being able to soar over our beautiful USA and see it from a birds eye view. - MagicalFamily  65.6 #93 4:43PM
Can't wait to see you and the family :-) - UppityEmpress  786.9 #9 4:47PM
Hello there !! Please add me !!My best Epcot memory was when me and my hubby were waiting for illuminations and while we were waiting my kids were dancing for us and enjoyed the margaritas and beer and it was also raining. We had a blast . - yessy  232.0 #39 4:46PM
Hi Michael!!!!! No need to add me just wanted to say we are all so happy your back!!!!!! Oh and my favorite memory of Epcot is one night there were extra magic hours till 3 am and me my dad and younger sister were at Epcot going on all the rides and having so much fun then we decided to go on captain eo and even though I was extremely exhausted I was just so happy and a great night! - nodell111  166.4 #54 4:47PM
Hello Michael! Welcome back! It's so good to hear from you! My favorite memory is from back in 2006 when we had a grand gathering and huge get together of about 24 of us! My brother in law was spending some quality time with his family before being deployed to Bosnia with the US Army which he has proudly served with since 1994! Thanks for the great RAK and add me please! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 4:49PM
Sorry nice to see you. Sorry I didn't get back with you. Hope you can forgive me :-) Any idea when you will be up here again? - UppityEmpress  786.9 #9 4:57PM
We check in October 19th so if you're working between the 19th and the 22nd, we can meet up! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 5:06PM
Great RAK! No need to add me. I just wanted to say Welcome Back!! It's wonderful to hear from you. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - Schramke  680.9 #12 4:57PM
Please add me... hmm, it is hard to say my most favorite Epcot memory, or WDW memory in general. The only thing i can say is that during my last 2 trips to WDW, i fly "HanSoloStyle (solo trip)" and all the CM's are so nice and friendly to accommodate a  solo traveler :). Epcot side, i will never forget my experience at Akershus Royal Hall. The Princesses are so funny especially Ariel! (i was wearing a captain america t-shirt and she is like, capt america is my crush!, the mermaid man of the sea). and the manager (i guess coz she checks the crowds) offer to be "my personal photograper" with the princesses. That is really amazing and superb service :) - otilegna  2692.3 #54 5:49PM
Favorite EPCOT memory was stopping in to see you in Germany in December 2011. I still have the photo of the mini MW meet up. No need to enter me I just wanted to share. - BufftheBuffalo  74.0 #86 6:07PM
Hey Michael..missed you lots.. please add me..my favorite memory is in japan my youngest daughter got a hugh pink pearl for the oyster..when they bang on the drums she said i feel like a movie star.. it was so cute!!!! - dxcmama  336.6 #26 6:20PM
No need to add me i just wanted to say welcome back and thank you do much for sharing the magic of epcots birthday with all of us- one of my most favorite places in the world !! - LateforWonderland  21.7 #165 6:28PM
My favorite Epcott memory is my son watching the fireworks and being too young to talk so he pointed at the fireworks and said " ah ah ah " ... I think that was a good thing - MunetMorelloMouse  20.5 #172 6:57PM
Hi! Please add me. That is a great watch. My favorite memory of Epcot is the time our family was entering The Wonders of Life. A young woman from Met Life ask our 6 yr old son if he would like to be the "Kid of the Day". Being a very cautious and serious 6 year old - He says No! The rest of us very quickly said "Yes he will". Well after the super experience we had, all of us including our son,we were very happy he excepted. - Nasuti  3.2 #1065 7:00PM
Welcome back! I have heard SO MANY wonderful things about you, I feel like I know you already!! Great RAK! Please add me for Jalex. My favorite EPCOT memory was in April when we went, it was my kids' first visit. It was so great to see everything for the first time through their eyes...so special, I will never forget it!! - ncjal  291.5 #28 5:02PM
Thanks Nicole! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 5:07PM
You're welcome! Good Luck! - ncjal  291.5 #28 5:14PM

I would be honoured if you can add me for my husband Carl!! My favorite memory was taking my kids one year when they were very young and watching their faces during illumination!! I thank you sir, for this Rak!!! - ginastuckey  35.7 #128 5:43PM
Well hello! We have never met but I have heard so much about you. Welcome back. This is an amazing rak and would be cool to add to my somewhat of a watch collection. Epcot is my favorite park and the biergten is one of our favorite stops and I have many great memories two of my favorites are the tapestry of nations, the music and the parade gave me goose bumps and my grandson getting a kiss from snow white on the forehead in his stroller when he was 3 months old and he sported that kiss all day. He is 10 now and we still tease him about that kiss. Thank you for letting me share and thank you for sharing. Have a great night - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 6:39PM
Please add me for mmddgp!! My fav memory from EPCOT was walking around the world one night with my hubs and finding a monchichi monkey in one of the little shops - my hubs' all time fav toy when he was little. It was so special!! He hadn't seen one in years!! - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 6:59PM
OMG was just singing the jingle for monchichi. For no reason liks 20 minutes ago. - Bakerjars  252.7 #37 7:06PM
Aww thanks for your vote Maggie. Have a great day - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 5:39AM
Hi Michael, so good to see you again. I hope all is well with you. What a generous RAK. My favorite EPCOT memory is from March 2009 when my parents joined us. We all watched Illuminations together right at the Japan pavilion and my kids loved seeing it with their grandparents. We had a pretty good view too. Please add me for Jalex. Thanks! - DizneyGirl  959.7 #8 7:06PM
Thank you so much Diz! I appreciate that! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 7:18PM
You're welcome! - DizneyGirl  959.7 #8 4:37AM
It's great to see you back! It's been so long, I hope you are doing well! It's tough to pick a favorite memory cuz I love Epcot so much and we've had sooo much fun there. I think I'll pick seeing Billy Ocean last year during Food and Wine Eat to the Beat. He sounded wonderful and sitting there with my love Jacdanfan was just one of those special moments! Thanks for the awesome RAK!! Please add me! - goofygal  11474.0 #7 7:09PM
That's so sweet Nancy! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 7:27PM

Welcome back! Please enter me for Jalex239. What a wonderful and thoughtful RAK. Every trip to Epcot was an unforgettable memory, I simply can't pick a favorite. As a side note, I can't pass the Matterhorn without thinking "Das" and I have to chuckle. Hope all is well with you and your family. - jacdanfan  11872.9 #6 7:13PM
Gary, you are such a gentleman! Nancy has entered for YOU so I feel guilty about entering for myself! Thank you! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #23 7:21PM

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 theย android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.ย 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.ย Thanks for reading ย and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127126 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  5641.1 #23 8:10PM
