Is there anyway to discribe the Disney experience to a non Disney lover? My boss thinks I should go with someone other than my grandchildren so "you can just go from ride to ride". She'd think I was crazy if I tell her I mainly go to see the shows and all my Disney friends. Why do you go to Disney?

I tell people that Disney is about the MAGIC. Yes, the rides are great, the shows are great, and we love the characters. It's the whole experience though. From the moment you step foot on Disney property, you just feel that you are in a special place. It's a sad thing to not understand (and love) the magic of Disney. - BagGal  343.6 #25 10:01AM
Could not have said it better myself. But, you forgot one thing... THE FOOD!! Haha - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 10:31AM
Omgsh!!! How did I forget the FOOD?!?! My must-try-FOOD list is longer than my must-ride list!! Haha!! - BagGal  343.6 #25 10:51AM
Haha!! I can't wait to take pictures of all the food!! - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 10:52AM
That is, right before I eat it!! Haha - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 10:53AM
LOL is it embarrassing i almost cried reading your response? - Boardwalkgirl  58.9 #98 1:55PM
Girl, we all get it!! :) I was teary-eyed during our last trip when I first saw Cinderella in the Electrical Parade!! - BagGal  343.6 #25 3:53PM
Totally agree with all of you! Some people say you going again? What is there to see year after year? Some have no idea, and some do but are not addicted! I tell people it is Disney world and it truly is a world in its self! I go with my grandkids because I wouldn't have it any other way. They are the joys of my life and if I can put a smile on their face it puts joy in my heart. I live seeing Disney through their eyes! Then my husband and I go by ourselves once a year and we stroll the parks and shops see the shows and parades relax at some nice restraunts and around the pool and just enjoy each other and our passion for Disney. Have a great day - mmddgp  1053.1 #7 1:35PM
I don't understand the ppl who go who are not addicted...i know many of them and i don't get it!! If they haven't been there before to experience it,then i might be more forgiving...but if they've been there and aren't addicted to it...what kind of foolishness is that??? Lol..i just don't get those ppl... - mickeynme  178.1 #51 1:44PM
I know I think the same thing. How can you not like anything about it? - mmddgp  1053.1 #7 2:05PM
You can't describe it, you have to experience it. It's a magical feeling you can count on experiencing all over again every time you return! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1404.9 #3 1:39PM
I don't think there is an adequate way to explain the magic to a non Disney person. - ally  509.0 #18 10:16AM
Because my grandparents went in 1955 when DL opened. They took my mom every year, they went with me when I was little. Grandpa passed in 2006 but great grandma still goes with my girls!!! It is in our blood!! ;) - Deppsfan  37.7 #125 10:55AM
How wonderful! I tell my son in law that if he has to push around in a wheelchair I promise I'll still be smiling - lala03  76.5 #85 12:13PM
That's push me - lala03  76.5 #85 12:14PM
It is wondeful! She is 82 and we do push her in her wheel chair but she loves to go. We always go on TOT and a little girl in front of us in line asked me way I was forcing her to go on. I told the girl with a straight face, she was forcing me!! Lol. You should have seen the little girl's face...priceless! ;) - Deppsfan  37.7 #125 5:36PM
Don't think there's a way to tell a non Disney person . When you become a Disney person , it becomes part of you !!! We go to just get away , relax , & soak up that magical atmosphere !!!!!! - skcanfield  583.8 #13 10:56AM
Remembering Pretty Woman what Richard says about the opera - lala03  76.5 #85 3:57AM
Atmosphere. FOOD. I just love it. I can't explain it. I will work triple time to make a trip happen. There's no place like Disney. ( home) - 5disneylovers  1158.6 #6 1:19PM
The atmosphere,the music,the smells....and FOOD FOOD FOOD!!! :D - mickeynme  178.1 #51 1:26PM
Oh yeah, you got it!!! - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 1:26PM
That's why we go!!! Lol...and the smells..ahhh:-) ooo and the music and the welcome home atmosphere...love it all!! - mickeynme  178.1 #51 1:36PM

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 the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. 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. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127116 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  5590.0 #23 8:10PM
