What an amazing weekend I had in Disneyland with my mom! She did not know what to expect and was thrilled to be shown around. We got her a First Visit badge, went on a train ride around the Park, and got her some Ears. Strolled down Main Street and went around Disneyland. By chance we stood behind PikaRich and OhanaStitch &fam at the HM. They had wonderful gifts for us. Sunday I heard something like, "Are you Churro?" I turned and answered Yes- it was ninodj_CM. So nice of him to stop up and say hello- very nice MWer:)
Sunday before the meetup I had butterflies, like a first date or something 😂😂. As my mom and I walked down the ramp to POTC, from Adventureland, I could see a HUGE group of MWers! just then MrsMears and her husband greeted us. They had JUST gotten off a cruise ship, came to DL for this meetup and were headed home after. I was so touched! As we made our way through the POTC queue that nearly extended to the Golden Horseshoe (well, kinda) I said, "Hi everyone! It's me, Churro!" to what seemed about 35 people. There were cheers (and tears from me) What a fantastic group! You may have seen the post that ScooterMike posted with me holding the cutest statue of Minnie as a Plaid. ( thanks SO much to the Strawberries, CAB, LaPearleNoir, CyndelGrace, Duchess, and ScooterMike). On POTC we Tapped, cruised, and then chatted for a while. Then Vegan7LuvsStitch presented me with a little box of 4 delicious cupcakes- enjoying them now. Thank you so much. My mom and I talked about this meetup and all the wonderful people we met most of the 365 miles back home. THANK YOU everyone! Especially Admin! (hope I didn't forget anyone)

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!
