Good Morning MouseWaiters! Wishing everyone a Tiggerific Tuesday 😎 A fun pic I came across back from 2012: the Ornament Valley Butte in #DCA & the #HiddenMickey that blends in oh so casually...Three weeks until our trip, yay!!! 😊
This is from @JohnnyCarr's photo of the Butte in ornament valley. A close up I took on my phone of the #HiddenMickey, not too far down from the bird perched at the top. I would have just posted this pic in the comments of his original post but unable to do so. I love all of the hidden Mickeys, thanks for the photo @JohnnyCarr!
#HiddenMickey We found a hidden Mickey on the POTC but did not take a picture because of it being dark...When you are passing the Blue Bayou, look to your right and you can barely see the lily pads in the water. The last one is a hidden Mickey!
For all my Disney fans, I finally caught a hard to catch on film #hiddenmickey! This is on the Monster's Inc Ride in the sushi restaurant scene. This Mickey is in the running silhouettes on the left hand side. 😊 It's in the official book, and I always see it but can never catch a good picture. Haha.
#HiddenMickey on Winnie the Pooh ride. This hidden Mickey is at the entrance of the ride on the right side. We spent about 35 minutes in this spot Sat eve. The ride broke down and all the other riders did a walk off but we were in a wheelchair accessible vehicle and they had no ramp to take the chair out. We waited in the vehicle until the ride was fixed then a CM rode with us to the exit. It's re More...
Groundbreaking for the Temple of the Forbidden Eye occurred in August 1993. More than 400 Imagineers worked on its design and construction. Tony Baxter led a core project team of nearly 100 Imagineers.
Several early concepts were considered for Indy including a walk-through adventure and a high-speed mine car adventure within a temple. To avoid a long queue, Imagineers even considered using Jungle Cruise launches to shuttle guests to the loading area. The team tested key show elements in a Burbank warehouse on a full-sized elevated track that resembled a freeway. This enabled the team to test set pieces, lighting, effects, transport clearances and motion profiles.
To create space for the 0.5-mile queue area and the 50,000-square-foot show building, an area of the former "Eeyore" parking lot was demolished, and the Monorail and Jungle Cruise attractions were rerouted. As I'm sure some of you know, an old Eeyore parking sign is hidden up in the rafters high above the projection room (in the queue). The sign pays homage to the Eeyore Parking Lot.
To watch some scenes from the opening ceremony:
Happy 19th birthday Indy!
Have you been on this attraction? If so, what is your favorite part or scene?
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a magnificent Monday!
