(Guest Assistance Cards). I want to share some information regarding Guest Assistance Cards. Disneyland is not only required to comply with ADA standards but also strongly desires to make the park inviting, accessible and enjoyable for “all guest of all ages from everywhere”. This is a monumental task of course but one that we are up too. The challenge is to give all our guest the best experience while not infringing on their privacy or dignity. There is no doubt that the system gets abused. I am sure I allow guest through the GAC access that do not belong there however, that is a small price to pay for making the park accessible for those that truly need some additional assistance. Also, the number on the card is for the maximum guest in the party. It is NOT a license to find people in the park and make magic of your own. This only adds to the abuse and slows down the stand by line for the rest of our guest. It is also not appropriate to allow members of the party to use the card while the guest needing the assistance stays behind. The GAC card is not meant to reduce the wait time for the guest in most cases (there are some exceptions E.I. green light cards) but are meant to make the attraction accessible. Most attractions are being converted where possible to queues and ride vehicles that are accessible by all therefore eliminating the need for alternate entrances. Please do not judge those using the GACs that do not have any apparent reason for using the card. But please me mindful when using the card of the reasons it was given. I am writing this as a ride operator that deals with GACs daily, an attractions trainer responsible for teaching other CMs about GACs, a working lead and an orientations facilitator that teachers new CMs about GACs. (My intension is not to start a debate but just to clarify)

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!
