Thank you Churro and all you other well wishers. That comment about being born with no pants and a wristband is a true story and it made me laugh, 😂 see? - philliprocks 1297.2 #130 11-17-15 7:51AMLike(5)Reply

I think many like my husband and I, could not find an open street into the parks at 10am and left. The traffic jams were horrible. We shall try again tomorrow :) - DeadliestPassholder 297.0 #913 9-6-15 5:24PMLikeReply
I'll toss in a coin for everyone who wants and wishes to come to Disneyland. Everyone deserves to go to the happiest place on earth. :)
I'm tossing in a coin for mental illness. Love these posts! 💕✨ - luxkitty 3222.0 #41 8-5-15 8:12PMLike(8)Reply
Throwing a coin in to wish for less pain and suffering, no matter the cause. And for more love in the world...mostly because I like to believe in sunshine and rainbows. - DarthTinkerbell 684.7 #276 8-5-15 11:40PMLike(7)Reply
Send her in the mail a special letter from Mickey Mouse saying that she is especially invited to go to Disneyland with her family. It would be a great keepsake!😊
you could tell her that she was adopted and your taking her back to her original parents and then go to Disneyland and say....HAHAH just kidding! - Dave 13397.8 #2 7-28-15 10:30PMLike(14)Reply
All good ideas. Thank you very much! I'll run them by wife. Once we decide, I'll make sure to share the fun. I'm leaning towards the adopted route though. Haha - bortso 47.2 #109 7-28-15 11:20PMLike(8)Reply
I vote for a scavenger hunt! Can even do it like a easter egg hunt. Doesn't have to be Easter to hunt for plastic eggs with clues! - Bobbierocha 14.7 #8447 7-29-15 4:39PMLikeReply

Go see Fantasmic! I don't care if you say, "I've already seen it at WDW" No, see Disneyland's show and you will be blown away in the middle of Nee Orleans Square! (Also get a fast pass for it for good seating. Early in the morning near bi More...
Disneyland is obviously smaller and it's right in the middle of a busy city, unlike Walt Disney World! I would say to spend the extra money on staying at a Disney hotel. There are many hotels that are close but if you stay with Disney, you won't feel like you're ever leaving, until you really do! - MamalovesMinnie 21.9 #6807 7-11-15 9:30AMLike(2)Reply
do the blue bayou/fantasmic FP meal. great to have a seat for the show and fireworks. - MsTikiMermadam 679.2 #283 7-10-15 7:18PMLike(1)Reply
Go land by land. Make sure to go on the walk throughs of Sleeping Beauty's Castle and Tarzan's Treehouse. These are quick attractions that are magical and unique. Also don't skip any rides that there are duplicates of in WDW. Our IASW is different because we have the Disney characters and the facade is outside. And overall there are differences in all the rides when you compare them to the WDW sister versions. No matter what you will have a blast! - BlackCanary86 68.9 #4133 7-12-15 12:32AMLikeReply

Hi! Welcome to Mousewait! Anyway, the crowd index is a great way of seeing what the parks will be like crowd wise. I tend to avoid the parks, unless I'm there, if the infect is above 90. Hope it helps! ;)
Welcome to MouseWait! The Crowd Index is on a level of 1 to 100 - the higher the number, obviously the higher/larger the crowd at Disneyland or DCA. I always check the Wait Times on the Dashboard to gauge the crowd size. If the wait for Pirates is 45, I stay away. LOL. - DeadliestPassholder 297.0 #913 7-8-15 1:45PMLikeReply
Thanks everyone. It was Splash Mountain next to the sign for the fast pass distribution. For those interested, Grand Ca Hotel has scavenger hunt papers you can get at the guest services. They give a prize when you complete them and turn them back in. - jenjim8 26.0 #6225 7-8-15 2:55PMLike(1)Reply

That is so cool!! Can I ask how exactly it works? Like do you go through fp line of every ride without a fp then? And I'm assuming they tell you facts that you may not know... Just curious how the day goes. And - brodysmommy 422.6 #505 6-17-15 7:35PMLikeReply

Disney gives away tickets to just about any legitimate non-profit that requests them. I am the Director for JDRF in Northern Nevada and we get tickets every year to put in our Gala silent auction. I am sure they do that for the local community as well. - AKMouse 489.4 #417 5-29-15 8:57AMLikeReply
Cant wait to experience this. Didnt the last time we were there in june of 2012. It was so packed with carsland opening and we were there for a short time. So happy they brought them back. - dsnylvr1975 88.2 #3762 5-29-15 8:00AMLikeReply
They also have the balloon buckets in DCA, blue (buena vista street), red (grizzly), purple (paradise pier). And red is also available near toon town. - thatgirljenn 1682.2 #98 5-26-15 8:42AMLike(4)Reply

Sorry for all the shouting I was just excited. I also get emotional when I take my pass out. I'm fortunate enough to be able to have a pass that gets me a lot 😪😪😪 - raul32393 25.4 #0 5-26-15 8:36AMLikeReply
its a combination of both. My dad, Fantasmic Fan1, has this Camera that has blue tooth and connects with his phone. So he can post on Mousewait after taking a very cool shot. :) - Disneypirategirl 192.8 #2057 5-16-15 12:15AMLike(1)Reply
i’ve done both but a phone camera is the easiet but DSLR’s are beautiful. - Plumiegirl 9814.5 #7 5-16-15 11:43AMLikeReply
My two tips are don't over saturate picture using apps on your phone and don't use flash! With a good eye and some creative angles you can make great pictures without super fancy edits or cameras (though I do have a DSLR and have taken it to the park but carrying it around all day can get cumbersome... Especially if it's really hot. - missmimi90 2014.5 #75 5-16-15 11:47AMLikeReply
But see, someone like my mom, who is very trusting, always sees the good in people, not internet savvy and is on a fixed income might go for this! Ugh! Or my daughters teen friend who wanted to buy his ticket this way in order to come with us during a visit. I SAID NO WAY! - PrincessDuckie 884.1 #201 5-16-15 8:30AMLikeReply

Great photo. Look at the size differences in some of the trees. Some are definitely more mature down at the Hub. And that old truck! 😱😍love it. Scaffolding around the castle, too. Thanks for sharing - misschurro 6192.6 #18 5-15-15 7:31AMLike(2)Reply
