I remembered I have an animal story too, Mrs. I! This cute little guy was hanging out in World Showcase at Epcot of Nov. 2010. He looked cute and well-mannered, but he was fooling me!!! After walking around a little, I sat down on the ledge you see here, ready to eat a hot, fresh, yummy pretzel I had just bought. So, I sat down, set my pretzel and napkin on my leg, set my soda down on the ledge, then... BAM! This sneaky little guy came up and took my pretzel OFF OF MY LEG! I couldn't believe he wasn't afraid (I had 2 loud, hyper little girls right next to me!) to get that close to us! Luckily, I acted quickly because I was HUNGRY, and I snatched the pretzel back from him! Of course, after I fought the duck for my pretzel, I felt bad for him. So, I gave him the piece he had bitten on to plus about 1/2 or the rest. Now, in 36 days, my girls want to go look for "the duck who tried to steal Mom's pretzel"!

I was telling that story last week! He was so cute! - lala03  76.5 #85 2:27PM
Yeah, cute... for a pretzel thief! ๐Ÿ˜› - BagGal  345.2 #25 2:52PM
Do not pet the duck aka pretzel crumb snatcher. Lol - 5disneylovers  1160.5 #6 2:28PM
Haha! Little stinker! - BagGal  345.2 #25 3:08PM
That's so cute!! - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 2:53PM
You fell right into her trap. She stays there calm and unassuming. Then *BAM*, good-bye pretzel. - Lelundrial  710.7 #281 3:42PM
You're absolutely right! Tricky little quacker! - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:46PM
Lol...thats to funny...how dare a duck come between a women and her food.. - dxcmama  338.3 #26 3:51PM
Haha! That's right! ๐Ÿ‘Š - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:47PM
Lol, that is a great story!! Cute little pretzel theif~ - Jazdaz88  66.1 #92 4:02PM
If you were armed with your soft-soap, that little ducky would never have taken a MW avenger by surprise! You must have wanted to maintain a low profile so as not to blow your cover!๎„ - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #24 4:31PM
Hahaha!!! LOL!!! Maybe by our next trip the ducks will have heard of Softsoap Girl and they'll know not to mess with her snacks! I don't mind sharing, but don't try to take my whole pretzel Mr. Duck! ๐Ÿ˜ - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:53PM
Yeah, keep a good distance. He might be poisonous. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 4:35PM
LOL!! She isn't afraid, she has soft soap powers!! - mrsincredible  1317.7 #4 5:06PM
Haha! Back away from the duck!! - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:14PM
Haha! Not sure if they're poisonous, but Epcot will have the cleanest ducks around if they come after my snacks again! ๐Ÿ˜œ - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:56PM
That is awesome!!!!!! I would have felt bad and shared with him too, lol!! He was totally brave - he deserved a bite, haha!! - mrsincredible  1317.7 #4 5:05PM
I know! That's what I told everybody! After all that work Mr. Duck did, getting up the nerve, waddling all the way over to us, waiting for just the right time to grab the pretzel off my leg... I figured he deserved a big piece for all of his efforts! - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:58PM
He didn't deserve it! He glamoured you with his quackness! He's not a homeless duck BG! He lives at DISNEY! I think I would have kicked a field goal through astro orbiters with him!๎”ก๎ซ๎€‡ - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #24 2:18AM
I got bitten on the leg by a duck at world showcase. We were sitting down to eat fish and chips in England and when I did not aknowledge him and share he made his presence known by biting my leg. - poohbr1205  21.2 #167 5:11PM
Omgsh!! That's crazy!! I guess I'm glad I shared with mine or he might have bitten my leg! Hope you were okay!! - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:59PM
Yes, I was fine. Luckily I wad wearing jeans since it was December, so it did not hurt, it was just funny. And needless to say he got my attention and I did share after that. But that just started something because then we were instantly ambushed be 2 more ducks, several squirrels and countless other various birds. My hubs says when he dies he wants to come back as any one of the wild animals that lives at WDW. They have the life. LOL - poohbr1205  21.2 #167 10:09AM
LOL!! That's so funny and so true! They do have THE life! - BagGal  345.2 #25 10:14AM
Awww...we love the ducks! I have pics of a lot of the ducks..we think they're cute..we tried feeding them a few times (even though we know you're not supposed to....lol),but that didn't go over too well because they almost bite your fingers off! Lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:14PM
We think they're cute too. They're tricky little guys, but cute! ๐Ÿ˜‹ - BagGal  345.2 #25 8:00PM
Funny story btw:D lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:14PM
That is so cute got to love the duck - jeri814  162.2 #57 5:37PM
Great story I love the ducks! It's those birds in frontierland I can't stand. They are always stealing food - Schramke  682.7 #12 8:23PM
Love the duck !! - skcanfield  585.2 #13 6:55AM
Even little pretzel thieves seem magical dont they? I once saw a cat in animal kingdom . He was hiding in some bushes. I thought it was really odd. He looked hungry so I threw him some of my snacks. I joked with my husband that I would take him home and have a Disney kitty - LateforWonderland  21.7 #165 7:02AM
Hahaha... Magical pretzel thieves! Yes!!!!! Aw, I would've been tempted to bring home a Disney kitty too! I like to bring home anything Disney... Napkins, shampoo bottles, stray animals... ๐Ÿ˜‰ - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:47AM
We saw a squirrel at Epcot trying to open a lunch box inside a stroller once. He was fearless! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #24 7:10AM
SQUIRREL ! He he . Yes they are so fearless sometimes they scare me - LateforWonderland  21.7 #165 7:35AM
OMGsh!! That's a brave little guy!!! What is it with these Disney animals?! A frog that likes to be petted, a duck who grabs a whole pretzel off a MW Avenger's leg, a squirrel opening a lunch box?!!! *~*~*It MUST be the magic!! *~*~*. ๐Ÿ˜‰ - BagGal  345.2 #25 7:44AM
Wow. You really have to watch out for the wild life. - 5disneylovers  1160.5 #6 2:21PM
I got dive-bombed by seagulls in Tommorrowland in 1995. I was putting a French fry into my mouth and the crazy bird ripped it out of my hand. His feet scratched my hand and almost got my face. Scared the pixie dust outta me. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 5:20PM
No way!!!!! That's crazy too!! Forget about being afraid of TOT... Everyone watch out for the stray animals! :) - BagGal  345.2 #25 5:25PM
I totally agree - 5disneylovers  1160.5 #6 9:57PM
@BagGal...yep, it happend. My mother screamed bloody murder when it happened and a CM came over to see if I was ok. We went inside the Lunching Pad after that. We laugh about it now. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 5:34PM
That's unbelievable! I'm so glad you were okay!!! Next time I'm eating outside at WDW, I'm going to watch out! You be careful too out there! 9 more days! Wooohooo! - BagGal  345.2 #25 6:24PM

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 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  0.1 #105817 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  6429.1 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127458 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! ๐Ÿ˜€ - AngiMouse  104.9 #3565 1:02PM
