Three years ago today MouseWait was approved by Apple and made its debut in the App Store! Several weeks before that, we went to Disneyland to test the app, and I remember sitting in the lobby of the Grand watching as the test wait times More...
Its crazy to think that its been 3 years. It honestly feels a lot longer..Its amazing at how big the community has gotten since the very first meetup..The life long friendships, the dreams that have come true, and the laughter that we all have in the parks on a daily basis.Its so neat to see all these meetups on a daily basis that get up to 80 people and happen not only at the parks but all over the state of California..Its pretty crazy to think that none of us would probably have ever met if it were not for this app...There are not many of us from the beginning who still actively post on MouseWait or attend meetups but I know that each and everyone of them is extremely grateful for the people who have been brought into their lives because of this app....I know some people might get annoyed at times by people posting in the lounge and their countdowns to the park, what is your favorite ride, etc etc but you have to remember, you were once that new kid on the block that was just as excited to post in the lounge and join in on the fun and not read the FAQ....I look forward this weekend seeing old friends and meeting new ones and finally getting the chance to meet some of you that I've seen in the lounge for sometime but never had the chance to meet in person....Hope everyone has a fun a weekend!!!

Thanks to Mousewait: I think leggings and uggs are a viable fashion choice, I tried (and failed) to eat a Matterhorn sundae by myself, I know who Denny Hamlin is, I know where all the bars are in the resort, I've had many sleepless nights and a phone fall on my face more than once, I know about penny wise and honey badgers and Rebecca black and gangnam style and hidin yo kids, I witnessed a banana peeled, I own vinylmations and pins and earhats and about $1000 worth of crap from company d. Yeah, thanks. 😏 Actually, I have a lot to thank MW for: late night craft frenzies, staying up all night talking in our hotel rooms, going to WDW with people I barely knew 6 months, realizing that we know everyone on our floor, pizza parties, group texts, squeezing 40 people on a jungle cruise boat and making the skipper laugh too hard to spiel, going to gay days and bats day and dapper day and Harry potter day, answering "80" when the cm asks "how many?" and then watching them panic, reading about the MW babies being born and watching them grow up and finally being tall enough to ride the big kid rides, skipping down main street arm in arm like a bunch of doofuses, ☔ on pirates, dressing up like plaids and getting a talking to by security, meat babies, laying on the ground to watch fireworks, having someone text "are you home safely?" at 2am, and always being there for you, even when life sucks. Thanks MW, you're alright. 😉 - bluefairy627.0 #174 10-21-12 4:42AMLike(3) Reply

Thank you for writing this app. I remember being jealous of my daughter because she had the app. When I finally got an iPhone the first app I download was MW. Once again thank you. Love the app - susiet239.6 #6878 12-13-12 7:26PMLike Reply
As the day ends for me, I look at this view and simply feel so thankful for this app coming into existence 3 years ago. I wouldn't have the memories, the fun moments, the friendships, the best friends, nor the extra gigantic love I now I More...
::tears up:: Awesome Marsha - all the best for everyone that got to share in the weekend and all of us that get so much from the community and app. - MrsMears212.0 #1449 10-20-12 11:27PMLike(1) Reply
You are such a special person. I want to thank you for taking my daughter under your wing. I was so worried with her being so far from home, but after meeting you and the other great Mwers I know she is in good hands. - ladylikesdisneysmom267.1 #852 10-21-12 7:42AMLike Reply

Since I can't be there today I thought I'd wish MouseWait a very happy birthday with a collage of some of my favorite MW moments. Thank you Admin and everyone who has made this not just an app community but a true Disney family! I love yo More...

Birthday Bash Meetup Oct 20, 2012 04:00pm Location to be announced, we will meet up outside the Park and then go in together for ride takeovers and other fun things.
Just a quick reminder of something I posted back in May after my first (and only) big MW meet up at the reunion: The meet ups and weekend were fantastic partly because I took the initiative to step outside of my shy comfort zone and introduce myself and meet others. Don't miss the opportunity...everyone is very, very nice...no matter how long they've been on MW. Just say Hi, I'm ____, who are you? I wish, wish, wish I'd get to be there for all the fun this weekend...but I'll be checking my phone for updates and pictures :) - Darlingwendi627.0 #173 10-19-12 11:23AMLike(3) Reply
Ride takeovers! I love it! Have a blast MWers. I will be there in spirit from Vegas. ENJOY IT ALL AND EACH OTHER! I'm so excited for all that can go. - smileslikeChesh11.5 #6338 10-19-12 1:18PMLike Reply
I really wished that I could go to the MW Bday Bash! It's my birthday on the 20th as well. But I can't go. Bummers. Just got AP's last month for my whole family and had a whole week at DLR. We will be back in the ending of May. For now, this cool MW app will have to do for now. I love this app! Now I wish I had a smartphone to post pictures and stuff. - kaukris111.3 #6366 10-19-12 1:27PMLike Reply
Birthday Bash 2012 Gear Has Arrived! Special thanks to chris. for hand drawing this really cool design that incorporates a Mad Tea Party Unbirthday theme along with a MouseWait themed "MagicRace" happening in the foreground. Order your t- More...
Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to design the 3rd birthday bash logo! It was a really fun project to work on, I originally was only designing a tea party themed table. But admin wanted to incorporate the magic race as well. The family at the table is admin and his family, and the people at the bottom are the top 5 mousewaiters. - chris.2507.1 #24 9-27-12 3:35PMLike(19) Reply
