A couple days ago I posted a shot of the castle arches. Many people hadn't noticed then before. I hadn't either until I took this picture and saw the arches. I totally overlooked them until this. Full size at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ More...
FINALLY!!! After months and months of being out of stock of this picture...I happened to walk in to see if they had it at one in the morning and pretty much fell on the floor when the CM told me it was in stock!!! 😱 I was soooo happy!! More...

So...I opened my box this morning and the pic is scratched 😭😭😭💔💔😡 I called the # on the receipt but they are closed on the weekend. StarWarsLove was awesome enough to go to that store right now and find out how I can get a new one. They said I can call on Monday and get one shipped. I hope it works!! I'm soooo bummed!!! TY Jas 😘😘 So, lesson learned....if you buy something in a sealed box, open it up before you leave to make sure it's ok!! I think I was just too excited last night and didn't think of it 😏😫😢😒 - caramiapoohAKAface1529.9 #53 6-8-13 1:36PMLike Reply
I went to a wedding this weekend of two friends I met on MouseWait. I couldn't imagine not being a part of their special day or the shenanigans before and after. It's amazing to me how lifelong friendships have developed all because of a phone app. The community that has grown because of MouseWait is remarkable, but Mousewait is more then an app or website. It's a place where people with a common love of Disney can meet in real life or virtually. The giving, the RAKs, people doing special favors for others to only be paid by the thanks of the person gifted. I remember the first meet up, carrying around a laptop so a friend from Australia could join the fun. I remember when I first met LaceySue and heard her say "It's Coaster" when she recognized me. I remember the first two people I met because of MouseWait. Lots of awesome memories, lots of new friends. I just wanted to thank @Admin for having a dream and creating this wonderful place we call MouseWait. I also want to thank @MrsPrinceCharming for the support she gives him. This is a video that not many of you have seen. Created by Admin and shown at the 2011 Birthday. - Coaster9295.5 #1 6-4-13 12:42AMLike(18) Reply
thank you Coaster, I love this post that reminds us of how blessed we are to just chat on an app and meet so many people (if only online sometimes) that become friends and family. You are part of our family and you are such a wonderful positive influence on this site so thank you for you and your wife being great MouseWaiters and teaching us all how its done. And thanks of course Admin and MrsPrinceCharming and your whole family, for sharing your love of Disney with us and giving us all a place to share it with everyone else!! Love ya all!!! - secretagentangel710.8 #143 6-4-13 12:47AMLike(2) Reply
I love the video.. I am still very new to mousewait, but that video gave me goosebumps. My grandparents would put us up in the disneyland hotel, cousins, aunts, uncles... then my parents too carried on the tradition, it was our family vacation every year, and now we continue it with our kids. It was our first date as well :) .. When we lost my mother two years ago, where else did we take my father, but disneyland, he rode my mother's favorite rides just for her, it was such an amazing trip for healing... thank you for sharing!!! - JeanaLeigh5.4 #10133 6-12-13 2:14AMLike Reply
Its great to be reminded every once in a while how a lot of us were brought together by this app. Thanks Coaster! - djbreakdown567.1 #200 6-12-13 9:33AMLike Reply
And now, here are 23 fun facts I discovered, paraphrased from Disney Trivia from the Vault: Secrets Revealed and Questions Answered.
1. Beauty and the Beast was not Disney’s first movie to be adapted into a stage production in Manhatta More...
You can people dancin' in the streets with their kids and others. It was very sweet. I was surprised how many people didn't know about the tradition of the lights going at sunset. I imagine in a few years, regulars will come in and start taking over the street and dance with each other as The Cords play on. - RadioMaverick673.8 #160 5-31-13 6:23AMLike Reply

Add me for Armenda please. If you have a child that is too small for a ride ask for a "when I get bigger pass" it allows up to 6 people to return to the FP line when they're tall enough. - UTDISNEYFAMILY228.5 #1292 5-27-13 2:34PMLike(6) Reply
Does anyone know how I'd find a list of gluten free options for both parks and downtown disney?
“Eating gluten-free in Disneyland is very possible but always a chore. This time, we obtained the special gluten-free menu from City Hall on Main Street. It turns out that eating gluten-free in California Adventure
really means manually eliminating the gluten yourself: that is, eating the hamburger without the bun, etc. We’d rather find a hamburger served on a gluten-free bun. To find that, you have to go into Disneyland park or to one of the outside restaurants. Here are the choices that particularly appealed to us inside the park:
* Club Buzz will serve a hamburger on a gluten-free Kinnikinnick bun. We eat these every time now.
* The Plaza Inn will serve gluten-free pancakes during breakfast hours.
* Coke Corner will serve hot dogs on a gluten-free tapioca bun.
* Pizza Port has two gluten-free selections: gluten-free pasta with your choice of sauces, and pizza served on a gluten-free crust (probably Kinnikinnick brand).
Instead of waiting in the long lines, we decided to wait while sitting on our bums in our favorite resort restaurant: Storyteller Cafe in the Grand Californian hotel. We’ve always had wonderful luck here finding
gluten-free alternatives, and this time was no exception. The chef actually came out to chat with us several times. One of the waiters later told us that this particular chef had been with the restaurant since the hotel had opened, and that he had been the one to push for gluten-free alternatives on the menu. Anyway, he helped us eliminate questionable items from the grilled salmon meal, and he also made us gluten-free macaroni and cheese , and two different pizzas made on gluten-free Kinnikinnick crust.”
I found this on a Disney Food Blog online hope this helps - Redman148.1 #2362 5-28-13 8:09PMLike(2) Reply
My boyfriend has celiac disease and he likes to eat at Rancho del Zocalo Mexican restaurant in frontierland. The chef actually comes out to talk to him and makes it himself to make sure it's prepped gluten free! Very good food as well! - DaisyDuke1412.3 #6307 5-28-13 9:27PMLike(1) Reply
The flat bread pizzas at the Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta are gluten free in DCA - Plumiegirl3521.3 #11 5-28-13 11:45PMLike Reply
My cousin and her daughter have Celliac. If you make it known when you get seated at the Plaza, the Chef will come out and go over your menu options. They take this business seriously. - chelebee237.1 #1170 5-29-13 7:26AMLike Reply

Good morning & happy Memorial Day! A very special THANK YOU to all our soldiers & veterans on MW! 🇺🇸 This day in Disney history, May 27th, 1977. After 2 years of construction, Space Mountain is officially dedicated in Tomorrowland. More...
Another awesome memory! A few of us who were attending UCI at the time, ditched classes (and right before finals!) to ride Space Mtn. on opening day! No lines back then so we rode it over and over again. We were given free tshirts (I still have mine, just don't know where it is) and bumper stickers commemorating opening day. No music back then, and the queue had windows where those waiting in line could see the "rockets" zooming around. When I was hired as a CM the following year we had a tour of the attraction then rode it with the lights on...which is quite scary! The tracks seem soooo close to each other! The best memories I have are riding it with my dad...seeing him with his hands in the air and laughing made it even better. - Gia794.2 #122 5-27-13 11:38AMLike(12) Reply
This is my favorite attraction in Disneyland! Did you know there are 14 right turns and only 3 left turns on the ride? Yes, I've counted them! Also, I do remember watching shows on the Tomorrowland Stage! Thank you SMK! This is such a great tribute to this attraction and the history behind it! You're awesome!!! - MyPark946.4 #94 5-27-13 6:36AMLike(5) Reply

Something about walking into California just doesn't feel the same without the letters I gotta say I really miss them.... Any of you guys?
I don't miss them at all. The park is much more tasteful now, and it begins to show that when you first walk up. - MousekaNinja372.5 #381 5-20-13 10:58PMLike(5) Reply
I think they were neat, but I love the ever changing landscapes at DLR. Also, I used to get major panic attacks watching parents perch their little ones up high on the letters. Yikes! - iwantdisney259.6 #929 5-20-13 10:53PMLike(2) Reply
I enjoy the new entrance. The California letters can still be enjoyed at the California State Fair Grounds. Disney was very generous in donating them to the state - Tealtownfan701.8 #145 5-21-13 6:39AMLike Reply

Wow, I had forgotten about the moving walkway that went to the monorail. I think his vision of Main St was pretty spot on, down to the taped second floor 'happenings'. What a nice read, thanks Gia. - Linzee534.1 #218 5-20-13 11:59PMLike Reply
