When visiting theme parks, waiting is a big part of your day. This is no different at the Disneyland, where you spend the majority of your day waiting in long lines for restaurants and attractions--which can make you wonder at times is Disneyland is truly the "Happiest place on Earth." MouseWait allows you to view current wait times at Disneyland and California Adventure, and also provides a plethora of additional information and tips to users.

MouseWait also encourages users to interact socially with other users. It has live chat support, where you can ask questions and other can respond. You can also link to Facebook accounts, and there is also a built-in Twitter search for nearby Disney-related tweets.

Wait time data can be entered by any MouseWait user. Wait times reported by the application give you a general idea how long the lines are for your favorite attractions throughout the resort. This was extremely handy, and the wait times were pretty accurate. You can also peruse the wait times this before actually making your way to Disneyland or Disney's California Adventure for the day to help you plan your visit.

MouseWait provides all information needed for a visit to the Disneyland Resort, all in one convenient app. It was extremely helpful to have current weather for the city of Anaheim, operating hours for the resort, and even useful notifications when important information changes occurred. For example, MouseWait notified our party that Disneyland was closing early for the evening due to inclement weather before the announcement was actually made to Disneyland guests.

Users can also view restaurant menus for all the different dining locations throughout the resort, and Annual Passholders can even access a convenient calendar of blackout dates to accurately plan ahead. Passholders can even view a list of locations in the resort, where they can use their annual pass for discounts on merchandise locations and restaurants.

MouseWait provides a wealth of information for both casual and frequent visitors to the Disneyland Resort. It does exactly what it claims and more, and it does it extremely well. If you have plans to visit the Disneyland Resort in the future, or are an Annual Passholder, this app is a must.
