Add me please! Seeing people think of others before themselves this time of year ( and anytime really) warms my heart! Thanks for the RAK! My kids would love it.
What a wonderful RAK. Please add me for 2BON2B. I am happy that I can be with my family. Never want to take that for granted. - RadiatorSprings4Ever 647.2 #246 12-1-13 7:46PMLike(1)Reply
Please add me for 2BON2B for Bleyn.. It warms my heart everytime I hear about how Bleyn is wanting to donate his gift to the victims in the Phillipines in the name of The Lord. His compassion is the true spirit of Christmas😍. Thanks:) - hatgal76 399.6 #473 12-3-13 9:41PMLike(1)Reply

I got the RAK from wickedlyraven and its awesome! This is my first time doing anything like this since were from Utah so I figured I better leave something. But I didn't have much so I just left 2 pins. Nothing cool but I felt guilty lea More...
If anyone takes advantage of this, PLEASE don't put anything valuable in there! There are lots of eyes 👀 on here that don't actually post - SPandEvLover 2688.8 #34 8-12-13 7:42PMLike(4)Reply
I got the RAK from wickedlyraven and its awesome! This is my first time doing anything like this since were from Utah so I figured I better leave something. But I didn't have much so I just left 2 pins. Nothing cool but I felt guilty leaving it empty. I'll check it before we leave at the end of the day. If no one else takes them I'll recover them. - chuswo 328.4 #651 8-12-13 8:29PMLike(2)Reply
Yayyyy! Glad to see the locker got put to some good use! 👍 - SaVilla 31.3 #5086 8-13-13 11:23AMLikeReply
@secretagentangel I thought of that afterward. I was leaving the park for the day & phone was near dying. But I'm glad to see it got used to provide more RAKS! - SaVilla 31.3 #5086 8-13-13 2:45PMLikeReply
If you're there at the end of breakfast, they will often gather the group together for pictures with the guests so you get them all in one shot, with the photopass photographer as well. - bluefairy 643.3 #248 8-13-13 10:24PMLikeReply
Fastpasses normally run out within an hour & a half after park opening, so get them fast by the entrance of A Bug's Land! The earlier you & your party get there, the earlier your FP
window time will be. Now, as mentioned, single rider is the best way to go in the morning, IF your party is above the age of 7 and do not mind splitting up. It picks up more around noonish, so the earlier the better...single rider line is usually shorter than the wait time.
Keep in mind, day & night wait times vary from day to day, so don't always expect that the lines die down at evening to night time or vice versa. Just read everyone's suggestions and you'll be good to go!! ^_^ - iPoca. 916.9 #155 7-26-13 12:16AMLike(1)Reply
Thank you everyone for the great ideas! I think we'll be able to put together a game plan from all the tips to help minimize the time we wait. Your help is much appreciated! - chuswo 328.4 #651 7-26-13 5:59AMLikeReply
We stopped using a stroller around 7. But we really brought it mainly to lug stuff and then when it got late the twins would crash in it while my oldest and I rode Splash Mountain over and over!!!!
as a mama...take the stroller unless you wish to carry a sleepy child. Great place to stash snacks, too. Tie a scarf on handle for quicky identification, as strollers are moved around by CMs. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 3401.9 #26 10-10-12 10:42AMLike(4)Reply
I'd bring it unless you are prepared to do a lot of carrying when the little one gets tired. I wish I could use a stroller forever, just so I don't have to carry all my stuff! Have fun! - MeridaFanHasNoAP 3190.1 #28 10-10-12 10:43AMLike(2)Reply
We so glad we brought an umbrella stroller with us when my younger one was 4. There was so much walking even us adults feel tired also. And we loaded lot of stuffs on it like jackets,bottle water, backpak, etc . Really appreciate we had it, saved our backs! Even my 7 years old wants to rest on it. Can't image without it. - RapunzalK 195.8 #1909 10-10-12 11:22PMLikeReply
Bring it. I milked it out as long as I could. I miss the storage and having a cup holder. Three is way too young to expect them to walk all day. - HalfCaff 374.7 #513 10-10-12 11:32PMLikeReply
Besides the drop, this is my favorite part of POTC.. gives me the chills. :) Even remembering how I felt as a kid, I was always wanting to sit up on the porch with him and talk about the "olden days". - DaisyDork 198.7 #1863 8-8-12 10:23PMLikeReply

Please add me!! My favorite thing about the Haunted Mansion is the credits that are put in to honor the imagineers that made the ride!! - GreenLantern 746.4 #200 6-12-12 4:23PMLike(5)Reply
Please add me and thank you. My favorite part of the ride are the ghost dancing and the ghost playing the organ. Also love when they turn into NBC for the holidays! - LoneRAYnger 4113.1 #21 6-12-12 3:57PMLike(4)Reply
To be honest I'm not sure where he got all of these buttons. But I do know you can usually ask for them if you do a character meal or similar. Thanks for looking!
Do you ask CM for this? I always wonder if they are free. I got my niece a happy birthday one when we bought her ticket I thought only those were free lol - lina1990 123.0 #2952 4-11-12 8:35AMLikeReply

Happy birthday Cody! Glad we could celebrate with you. Much MouseWait love to you!
And thank you for bringing such happiness and joy into the Lounge today. I felt like I was celebrating with Cody today and I saw Disneyland in a whole new way! - cynDOLEwhip 1175.5 #108 3-4-12 9:00PMLike(6)Reply
If I was close by we'd stop by and give Cody a whole bunch of high fives! I'm glad you all enjoyed the visit , thanks for sharing it with us. Safe journey home. - PrincessDuckie 712.1 #211 3-5-12 7:49AMLikeReply
I wish I was there to give him a high five. Glad you had fun. - VfxGenie 1504.0 #80 3-5-12 7:50AMLikeReply
I just bought the Zagg Sparq. I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it looks like a life saver in the park. I just checked the New Trent website and the Trent is on sale for $39, which seems like a sweet deal.
Lol Freddy you're so awesome I bought one to RAK off too! I'll do it after yours is done! Good luck everyone, I'll have mine ready after so you can have a second chance after this one. - MarshaMouse 3640.4 #25 1-29-12 9:54AMLike(5)Reply
What a great example of what MouseWait is all about. Way to go sugarbuzz!
Yea! You got them. I thought the beanie would be a nice surprise. The thumbs fold back for texting (most important feature). I had fun making them. Thanks for all the nice comments as well. - Sugarbuzz 131.8 #2813 1-25-12 3:20PMLike(14)Reply
Awesome seems to be completely inadequate in this situation. I feel like I want to be like that lady in the cell phone commercial The "I now feel like I can buy the crown jewels because I'm feeling richer effect." HOW MUCH FOR MY VERY OWN?!!? lol - mandigutterrose 156.5 #2448 1-25-12 2:52PMLike(4)Reply
I love two parts actually. First is the part were the are dunking the guy in the well and his wife says "don't be chicken" with a Spanish flair. The second is the auction scene. "We wants the redhead!"
Our twins started when they were 4. It was so great and they have loved it ever since. Now that they are 8, they have a ton of pins to show off from their trips and they even take them to school for show and tell.
My husband and 7 year old love to pin trade. We started her out at age 4 and now she has 100's of pins. We now have a 20 month old son that just started. Your never too young! My 20 month loves to pin trade. We just got him a small lanyard, tied a knot in the back to make it fit and started him out with 4 pins. The cast members love to trade with him and see that he actually understands how the trading works. Your kids will love it and be hooked for life! Plus it gives you something fun to do when the parks are crazy crowded. - Familyof4LoveDisney 6.7 #11845 12-9-11 2:35PMLikeReply
