I'm not very fond of this parking lot.. The kneeling buses are just... Weird to me! Now that I hear of fecal seats I'll park at the Simba lot and walk if ever the parking garage is full 😂 - Madgesty 68.1 #3956 1-25-15 1:37PMLikeReply
It's a terrible risk, everyone should stay away as long as they can. Let's see that mid day below 30 crowd index
Honestly this measles and disneyland thing is giving me a headache. I have friends telling me I shouldnt be going and I better becareful and blah blah blah...this can happen anywhere. It all boils down to...people need to take proper care of themselves and get children vaccinated. It's not a Disneyland problem like people are making it out to be. - luxkitty 2070.6 #59 1-20-15 6:44PMLike(26)Reply

Disneyland I a very dynamic place, it's a living and breathing animal. For it to remain as great as it is, it HAS to be down times that are longer than the 3rd shift can handle. I agree it can be a let down, but if these tasks More...
The ride closures are necessary to ensure that rides are properly maintained so that they don't break down throughout the year. There are still plenty of things to do and plenty more attractions to ride. Paying customers can also check the Disneyland website in advance of their trip and see what attractions are closed so they can chose when they want to visit. - thatgirljenn 1159.9 #127 1-18-15 9:24AMLike(13)Reply
I think we often forget how many people only are able to visit DL once in their whole lives. I agree that it would be a huge disappointment if you had saved, booked, and paid for a DL vacation before these were all announced (some people have to plan years in advance to make a DL vacay possible, long before closures are announced). Refurbs are a given this time of year, and they are necessary for safety, but it does seem like a whole lot of things are closed. I guess the best advice to people traveling would be to book during the high season to avoid refurbs. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 563.7 #316 1-18-15 9:42AMLike(6)Reply
I would be upset as well if I had not known about all the referbs prior but that's why it pays to research before planning trips. But then again there are always going to be things that don't go as planned. - luxkitty 2070.6 #59 1-18-15 2:34PMLikeReply
Disney is always changing and rumor always fly around the net so we call them rumors until confirmed by disney, but are far as the matter horn it is only said that regular maintenance is being done but strong rumor support that it may get some new effects and lights and possible upgrade on Haroldand the one everyone Iis wanted to be true is the structure support re added to have a Christmas star put back on top of the matter horn which did happen in the early years of disney. As far as a utopia it does have the biggest land as well as Nemoto make a whole new land. At this point and time there Iis no 100% assurance what may become of this ride, maybe re themed or replaced or upgraded, maybe at some layer time we may know for sure - pikarich 3352.3 #31 1-13-15 7:27PMLike(1)Reply
We get one almost every trip and well worth it. The photographers will take plenty of extra pictures and poses with you. It seems like they take a little extra time with you when they know you have the "plus" card.
Definitely worth it! Get the most out of it by having lots of pictures taken. And if you have reservations for Goofy's Kitchen or Ariel's Grotto, your pictures will be included from there, as well. (And no limit. So if you go both places, or more than once to ether place, all hard copies and digital pix are included!). When you get home, be sure to take the time to add different frames to your pix and save them in the different sizes (4x6, 5x7, 8x10) so you don't lose your frames when you have them printed out inexpensively at Costco! - MeridaFan 3475.5 #28 1-13-15 1:43PMLike(2)Reply
Totally worth it, but a lot depends on how well you utilize the service. Be sure to use your photo pass at attractions that take pictures. Look for photographers at character meet and greets and at scenic photo spots in the parks. Most photographers are willing to take shots with your personal camera too. Once you are home be sure to upload your personal photo to the photo pass site. On that site you will have access to lots of free borders and embellishments to create multiple versions of your favorite shots. I think I nearly quadrupled the number of original photos I uploaded. There are also lots of products buy to create albums, calendars, cups etc... I hope this is helpful. Enjoy and have a wonderful visit! - DreadPiratesRogers 835.1 #191 1-13-15 1:46PMLike(2)Reply
We LOVE photopass plus! Would not go to DL without it! - MJmouse 273.0 #1026 1-16-15 7:02AMLikeReply
Thanks for the great info! I was just trying to decide about photopass+. My only concern was lines for the photographers...but it sounds like there are plenty of opportunities for pictures! Getting it for sure - azcoolmom 211.2 #1755 1-16-15 11:03PMLikeReply

What a fun RAK! No need to add me. Just wanted to say for your kindness. 😊 - MeridaFan 3475.5 #28 1-10-15 8:27PMLike(1)Reply
Also this has changed a bit. "Gold" is now called "yellow" and there's a "green" viewing area now. The RiverBelle Terrace patio is also viewing for those dining packages. - IDVandalSkipperCM 2278.5 #53 1-10-15 6:13PMLike(1)Reply
So glad to see this, and at the same time, sad to see it. We've watched the late show from the bridge every year for as long as it's been showing. Now I'm not loving the idea of having to deal with getting the FP's...just won't be the same. - msdizmaui 632.9 #272 1-31-15 1:37PMLikeReply
AP holder who flies 15 hours from Australia once or twice a year!! Plan it out so get 2 trips with AP each time, usually for 1-2 weeks at the parks per visit. So fortunate to be financially secure and have the opportunity to have the parks in my life 💜💛 - RapunzelledColey 111.7 #3239 1-10-15 5:16PMLike(4)Reply
So not only do we need to post quality CONTENT, now we also need quality photography?
post pictures from phones and cameras, we want everyone to share their
pictures, however the camera does not make the photographer, it’s the
photographer that makes the picture. I use both and offer some
tips: It’s it a good idea to learn how to use your camera as Mousewait
is seen and enjoyed by millions all over the world, take a little time,
review and post to the correct land (Hub, DL Live and DLtalk) and
present the best pic possible. A phone camera takes a 2/ 3 seconds to
adjust a clear shot and then snap it. You can also take burst shots
(takes up to 20 pics within 3 seconds, then
choose the best pic). Sometimes having no flash is the best option.
Zooming in on the camera phones can produce blurry or grainy pics-they
aren’t design for clear pictures of objects close up. Instead, take your
pictures and use a crop feature for a clearer photo. Do *not* take
pictures from a screen( such as your computer) it shows the screen lines
and has a grainy look. Instead, if you want to share from and older,
say, throwback pic or past trip, you can resend your pic to your phone
and add to your gallery. If you do use a picture from google or other
source that is not your picture, please give credit. Regardless of how you take your pics, take the time to review and enjoy. I I hope this helps others as well. Thank you - pikarich 3352.3 #31 1-6-15 12:06PMLike(9)Reply

Thank you, Tania! Downloading this app and joining has truly changed my life for the better! There hasn't been one day that has gone by where I do not talk to or socialize with friends who I met thru MW, in the past 5 years! They really have become lifelong friends. Thank you @@Admin! I'll always be grateful for how this app changed our lives. - MimiMouse 1043.3 #150 12-31-14 11:01AMLike(5)Reply
Wow, thanks for posting this @Calypso! It warms my heart to see pics of you guys still hanging out after all of these years. You guys have definitely been a blessing in our lives, and you have done so much to help the MW community since the beginning. I'm grateful for all of you and my family is grateful for the generosity you have shown us. Here's to another five years of great friendships! - Admin 12-31-14 11:30AMLike(5)Reply
Happy MWversary! I love reading stories in the lounge of long friendship that started in this awesome App!! I hope one day to meet you at the parks! - ILuvSleepingBeauty 215.5 #1695 1-1-15 7:58AMLikeReply
We took my 4 year old goddaughter and she loved it! Won't stop talking about it. - mcramos925 383.0 #527 12-30-14 7:23PMLikeReply
Thanks everyone. Not sure what he's going to think. I'm not going to make him go on it since there will be others not going on it, but rather give him the choice. He hasn't done Matterhorn yet because he wasn't tall enough last January. We are hoping he will ride it this year, because he's tall enough now. - charliesmom 62.7 #4062 12-30-14 7:48PMLikeReply
Thanks for all the info, and remember to getyour restroom ffast pass early too😂😂😂 - pikarich 3352.3 #31 12-29-14 12:32PMLike(5)Reply
And pack for the cold! Lots of people who will stay all day rent a locker, and keep adding layers as the temps are getting into 40's and lower late night this week! Bwah! I hate being cold! That said, most people pick a park and stay in it by 4 as the park can reach capacity. Have fun everyone! - secretagentangel 1326.0 #105 12-29-14 12:34PMLike(1)Reply
Hi welcome to MouseWait! Please read the faqs admin gives you when you join. We try hard to keep this a vacation- y friendly place and though I know you are very frustrated at this point, maybe get a mocha, sit by a tree, people watch and just be happy you're there! Thousands on here would love to be there!!:) - secretagentangel 1326.0 #105 12-28-14 3:31PMLikeReply
Best bet is to get there as soon as the park opens and do the big attractions first. Also get a fast pass for your "must do" ride. When it is a super busy time, we do rides in the morning, then reserved dining and shows in the evening. Have fun - fab5 40.4 #4779 12-28-14 7:28PMLikeReply
