Haven't watched monsters university yet... :( mrtooooodles watced Mulan for the first time a few months ago and his favorite Disney song is from that movie and I'll be honest I watched NBC for the first time the night before the Friday the 13th party. There are so many Great movies on here people have to watch, put aside ideas and watch some amazing stories! What a great post. Good one. Love reading these all. Thanks everyone! - mrandmrstooooodles 37.8 #4805 10-12-13 10:39PMLike(1)Reply
I sent out emails today to all the participants, let's meet at 9 AM at Coaster Corner. Make sure you have the app installed on your phone, and login with your MouseWait account. You should get the invite to the game shortly. - Admin 5-17-13 5:13PMLikeReply
My bf and I just started a tradition last time we were at the parks. We both picked out a lanyard and a pin for each other. Now we can only purchase pins for the other person :)
Make sure u also get the book that tells u how to spot fake pins very important to have there are alot of fake pins out there - alphathedog4 145.2 #2634 3-23-13 4:54PMLike(2)Reply
Guilty of also being a pin hoarder. We go quite often and the one souvenir we take from each trip is a pin. Each family member picks one that represents something special from that trip. - fab5 25.4 #5657 3-23-13 5:12PMLike(1)Reply

Is it a free breakfast? I got confused on that... It says "Premium Character Dining Experience
for each Guest in their party". So I'm wondering if its actually free or if its like an upgraded "premium" character breakfast? - SPandEvLover 2925.4 #34 3-22-13 3:13PMLikeReply

Thanks Willierose for posting this, my sister just sent it to me too and I thought it was so sweet I checked to see if it was posted and you already took care of it. Hope you don't mind the bump! - piratelife4me 808.7 #191 1-31-13 1:27PMLikeReply

The limited time magic will have special castle effects at dusk according to the disney parks blog. "At dusk, hues of red and pink will bathe Sleeping Beauty Castle, with projections of flowers and hearts."
I'm sure a search will show lots of other posts about proposing at DL. Some popular ones seem to be in front of the castle, by Snow White's wishing well, and in the plaza between DL and DCA. Wherever and whenever you decide to do it, good luck and best wishes to both of you!!! :) - jmgphx 323.1 #691 1-30-13 9:04AMLikeReply
if it's at night Court of Angel's would be a great choice. http://tinyurl.com/b89gfxg - chris. 2510.4 #41 1-30-13 9:08AMLikeReply
I think blue bayou for dinner right near the water would be lovely. If you go there call ahead for reservations for the special table. Maybe do it after the proposal so the may have something special editing for you 2. Congrats. I hope to one day find my prince. - aidensmama 340.1 #613 1-30-13 9:54PMLikeReply
You can easily do a 5k and run the entire thing if you start training now! I would recommend running on both a treadmill and out of the street. When you run a treadmill make sure to set the incline at 1. Good luck to you! I know you can do it! - AshleyLynn22 791.2 #196 1-23-13 6:56PMLike(1)Reply
I love both versions. It's nice to have a little change once in a while. - PixiePirateMaid 293.9 #840 1-22-13 5:12PMLikeReply
I wish they'd gone a bit darker with the NBC and used more of the music from the film. There is some darkly romantic imagery that would have fit in better with the setting. Still enjoy it while it's here, but I prefer the original. - bluefairy 643.3 #259 1-22-13 5:28PMLikeReply
Why can't they do a "Zumba dance with Disney" or something like that? I'm also NOT a runner so I admire all of you runners out there! - MissAmericaSings 350.7 #586 1-19-13 11:14AMLike(7)Reply
Count us in! Me and my mini (18) are going to run! It's our first, and we started training in earnest this past week. We are so excited, but we are also sure that plenty of pixie dust and encouragement will be needed! Let's do this! - mrstoad 256.1 #1161 1-19-13 11:27AMLike(2)Reply

For those MWers who wanted to sign up for the half marathon or 10k....you can still sign up through get travel. I was able to get a spot in the 5k for my boyfriend after it was sold out through run disney. - SBsnowwhite 506.3 #358 1-27-13 5:58PMLikeReply
Am I the only one who can just scroll past the things I don't care to see and move on? I know there are rules for a reason but it isn't going to ruin my mood if I see someone posting a photo that isn't live or seen as acceptable.
LittleMermaidLover, I understand where you're coming from but inside jokes and friendships are why most of us stick around this app! (And why soooo many others have left...they want to joke around with their friends and are a little annoyed by people constantly telling them to not act like friends) the thing is...a lot of us have become friends. Real life friends! I'd say if it makes you feel excluded, maybe ask! or like Friendly Mouse says, do a little research! I joined just under a year ago, didn't get a lot of the banter but enjoyed people's personalities so much that I made an effort to figure it out. I guess I'm trying to say that the lounge would be a boring, vanilla place if no one could ever mention a funny thought, inside joke or mention something funny from the past. Is that how you are with your friends?!? We've actually gone through a lot together!! Every single one of us is waiting with open arms for a new person to bond with and share things with...you just have to be willing to bend a tiny bit and shake things off sometimes. I really don't think that's too much to ask. - MissMolly 1221.3 #109 7-7-13 3:22PMLike(23)Reply
@Cesium55, it is funny that the What's Opera Doc is a compilation of Tannhauser, Der Fliegende Hollander and Die Walkure! (Being the overture of the Hollander is used more) - otilegna 1791.7 #69 1-15-13 12:38PMLikeReply

Well I'm devastated!! I registered for the 10k at the last minute, only bc my husband was going to do it with me and I really felt like I could do it with his support. Then he didn't register! I don't think I can do it on my own!😔 - RCmom 5168.4 #15 1-22-13 12:48PMLikeReply
I was able to sign up at the Tink Expo. So excited for this! - MXPrincess399 646.3 #257 1-22-13 4:28PMLikeReply
I've never gone by myself but I think I would spend a lot of time watching the different performances and try to take in as much as possible. oh and Go Kings!!
I went by myself, but was never alone. Ended up with MWers all day!! Otherwise I would go to Jolly Holiday, grab a hot chocolate and people watch for a bit. - mousejedi 306.4 #772 1-9-13 11:45AMLike(4)Reply

I went by myself right before Christmas. I only went in the get a shirt for my brother, then desided to get lunch, then had ice cream and sat in carsland people watching. It was very relaxing. I really enjoyed the "me" time. - MelB 108.4 #3261 1-10-13 12:10AMLikeReply
I saw the post last weekend and was yet still too shy to say anything. Today is the day...HELLO!!!
I realized I never formally introduced myself. Yesterday was the first time I was able to get a post off in the parks!
I'm a lifetime Disney addict who recently got an AP. I'm from the Bay Area, and I'm excited to contribute and make new friends. - anirina 166.4 #2320 1-6-13 9:51AMLike(2)Reply

Hello. I'm not new but am definitely bashful! I love going to DL either with family or friends or solo. I really appreciate MW. It's such a great way to get a little dose of Disney magic every day. One of these days I will be brave enough to meet some of you person. Thanks for all the pictures and laughs! - BRabbit 529.0 #335 1-6-13 7:20PMLikeReply
This should be a rule of thumb in any situation. Just be polite and patient, not many people remember to do that.
THANK YOU! Especially those of us who are working 40+ hours the next couple of weeks with only one day off each week.... Ahh, vacation will be much needed! - IDVandalSkipperCM 2115.6 #54 12-22-12 12:28PMLike(4)Reply

I am on the Canon train. I have a T2i but I am looking to upgrade to a T4i. They are reasonably priced (about 700 for just the body) and will still get you awesome shots. I use mine a lot for shooting sports such as hockey and basketball More...
I personally use a canon t3, I've been shooting for about a year and a half now. I shoot for fun but I've spent more money on lenses, which cost more than the camera body. It's all preference for manufacturer, I would read up a lot before making a decision. - chris. 2510.4 #41 12-19-12 11:19AMLike(3)Reply
It depends a lot of what you're wanting to capture. Canon shoots much more vibrant photos straight from camera and usually has sharper high action photos. Nikon on the other hand typically has better low light photos, as lower light action. Sports photographers use Canon, NASA uses Nikon. Personally I shoot Nikon because I do a lot of low light photography, concerts, weddings, etc. but mostly I chose it because it felt good to use. Beyond capabilities get what you'll use. The most expensive/best equipment means nothing if you can't use it or don't love using it :) you can get the same results out of any camera if you learn it and use it. - Lola027 450.3 #416 12-19-12 11:24AMLike(2)Reply
I have never found TOT to be scary, the drops make me laugh uncontrollably though
its totally different that screaming. I wont do screaming but i love TOT. If you dont like drops you wont be a huge fan, but you should try it at least once! I love it and dont find it scary at all, but i can understand how some do find it scary. - Pixarprincess 539.3 #324 12-14-12 12:44PMLikeReply

I coach and teach high schoolers and I don't want to try and imagine the pain that community is going through right now. Prayers and vibes for all those affected.
I am an elementary school teacher and the mother of two young children.

My wife teaches sixth grade and my daughter is only three years old. Kids should be able to be save at their own school. In 2001 I lost a nephew who was four and a half. It's the hardest thing in the world to bury a child. We should all pray for the victims as well as their families and friends. RIP - ScooterMike 1961.4 #61 12-14-12 11:15AMLike(7)Reply
I teach high school. A few years ago we had a shooting on campus. In this case everyone involved belonged on campus. I don't think there is anywhere that you are truly safe no matter how hard we try.

This reminds me of the Rosetta Stone commercial with Santa and a little German boy. The kid was sad because he doesn't know English but got excited when Santa started speaking to him in his own language. Something like that can make anyone's day.
