I started chatting with a guy from Yonkers who makes balloon animals for a living.
Dave Tavres, who describes himself as a “software geek,” told that he created the website because he “found it hard to find women who were as interested in Disney as [he is].” He notes that “Niche dating sites are more common these days,” but apparently Farmers Only and Oscar Mayers’ bacon-lovers dating app didn’t quite work for him.
The dating site, which is unaffiliated with the Disney company, registers new members by asking which parks are closest to them, whether they currently hold an annual pass, and if they’re looking for a romantic relationship, friendship, or a “Park Pal.” , “don’t have Disney questions.” Membership is free as long as you’re simply looking at profiles and photos.
If you’re having trouble finding your Prince or Princess Charming, this new dating website exclusively for Disney lovers might do the trick.
Mouse launched on Tuesday and is the creation of a former Disneyland Railroad engineer.
So what happens when a Minnie logs on to find her Mickey? Unlike swipe-style apps, Mouse Mingle takes a page out of the Ok Cupid playbook and prompts you to answer an obscenely long questionnaire to pair you with compatible “matches” to whom you can reach out at your own discretion.
So despite its off-beat theme, Mouse Mingle functions a lot more like a traditional dating site.
To engage in any sort of conversation, you have to upgrade your account to the tune of .55 per month or 0 per year.
To get around that, many Mouse Minglers include an email address on their profiles.
Even Disney fans may be wiser to consider using the annual chat fee on tickets to park IRL.
There’s no shortage of specialty dating websites—from the religious, to pet owner-centric, nudists and even the gluten challenged.
In order to contact someone, you have to pay a .55 monthly membership, the 55 being an homage to the year the Anaheim park first opened.
