 Best Post of the Day 5-22-13
Good morning! This day in Disney history, May 22nd, 2008: The Indiana Jones Summer of Hidden Mysteries begins in Disneyland’s Adventureland, the same day Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opens in theaters. The summer-long Disneyland promotion included random appearances of Indiana Jones in Adventureland. A new “Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Stone Tiger” show at The Oasis in Adventureland. Guests joined the show by uncovering clues, deciphering codes & embarking on an archeological journey that culminated in an appearance by Jones. Collectible Adventure Maps gave park guests clues to artifacts & symbols hidden throughout Adventureland. These ultimately revealed special codes that could be used for exclusive Indiana Jones digital content on disneyland.com/indy. The Jungle Cruise attraction was also given “a distinctly Indiana Jones flavor.” In addition, a new Indiana Jones-themed photo location was added. To watch a clip of Indy roaming Adventureland: http://is.gd/H9ZRpm to watch the "Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Tiger stone" show: http://is.gd/mWHAkO Do you remember this summer in the parks? Anyone still have any of their decoder cards?

Me too! - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1143.5 #155 11:01AM
Hi sweetie! 👋 Happy to hear it brought back fond memories! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 4:08PM
I remember this, we got the decoder paper, translated the wall writings with it, looked for the hidden objects in adventureland, saw the indy show in the aladdin oasis - kinda violent looking since the lady character was in a mock fight with a guy(suppose to be like the movie). It was an exciting time. - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 9:28AM
Sounds like fun, I would have liked to have seen that! :) - piratelife4me  1047.3 #175 6:39AM
Me too! 😊👋😘 - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 4:09PM
I wish I had known that was going on! I would have nerded out big time! 2008 was the first time I took my daughter to DL, but we went on Christmas Day. The last time I had been at that point, was when I was when I was in 7th grade and Indy the ride had just opened. I wish I still had my decoder card from that. I'm sure my mom threw it away. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #286 6:42AM
Good morning. Thank you for this, I didn't really know about this - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 6:47AM
Lol I see a service dog below in middle picture - alphathedog4  154.3 #2651 7:07AM
Wished we had been there! - rickandyvonne  11.3 #10185 7:24AM
Good Morning Duchess_SMK. We liked seeing Indy fight on the treehouse bridge and the balconies above the Bazaar. That was the last time our granddaughter went to the parks with us. Thank You for history, links and memories - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 7:37AM
Oh wow! I didn't know any of this! Our family went in the spring of 98, in April I think, so we missed this! Thanks Duchess_SMK! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 7:54AM
I remember this! One time we were walking in front of the Bazaar towards POTC and Indy came running through and stopped behind my hubby, put his hands on his shoulders and said something like "it's now or never" and motioned for my hubby to come with him then started running again. We didn't know what to do so we just stood there lol. - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 8:02AM
This was Lil Ones first visit when she was two months old. :-). Thanks for the memories Duchess! - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 8:03AM
I vaguely remember this.. Like Indy running through adventureland. But that's about it 😁 - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 8:16AM
What a great promo for the attraction. That would be nice to see again in the parks. - pinkmonkeys  528.7 #393 8:21AM
So cool! Thank you Duchess - ribidib  1187.7 #147 8:22AM
I don't know this movie you speak of :) - fairyshley  479.8 #443 8:45AM
They definitely need to bring these appearances back to Adventureland. I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan-I've only seen Raiders 23 times. :) - DeadliestPassholder  314.8 #825 8:47AM
I wanted to see this so badly, but made it to the parks in Sept that year, a little too late. 😩 - MousekaNinja  422.4 #525 9:16AM
I was unfortunately not near the park at this time but it looks like a lot of fun!! I've always loved Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye. It seems just perfect in Adventureland alongside the Jungle Cruise. I don't have the decoder cards but they're easily found using a Google search. Thank you SMK! Great adventure in Disney history! You're awesome!! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 10:36AM
I wish they would bring Indy back for pics and autographs, that would be so cool! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 11:06AM
I agree!!! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 11:45AM
I remember this. My dad and I really liked it. - TraderJennsEnchantedTikiBathroom.  75.5 #4034 11:14AM
This might explain the random Indiana Jones spotting outside Bengal BBQ back then. I had no clue any of this was happening😂 - Linzee  1188.6 #146 11:26AM
😂😂😂mystery solved! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 6:40AM
This would have been great to see. Maybe even better than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 😁😄It wasn't that bad of a movie. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1569.4 #106 11:48AM
Yes it was : ) - joel83  388.7 #580 1:03PM
Haha! It was disappointing. - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 2:03PM
😂😂But the motorcycle chase in the beginning of the movie was pretty cool. Definitely ranked #4 - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1569.4 #106 7:23PM
Dang this looked awesome! Wish I had known about this! Pretty cool that Indy just roamed around adventure land. Wonder why they don't have him out anymore?? Thanks for sharing as usual! 😘 - CourtyAstroBlisters  784.0 #236 2:32PM
Indiana Jones is my favorite, finally hearing a history got my very attention thanks! - Goofy24  174.0 #2335 3:42PM
😱 Holy cow! I've been so busy today and haven't been around to respond to all of your lovely comments! Please know that I always read every single one and am so happy you all enjoy these posts! Thanks everyone! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 4:11PM
Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while, but I thought I would chime in here. Today as well in Disneyland history was the re-opening of Tomorrowland, named Tomorrowland '98. I know most fans hate Tomorrowland '98, and I could argue along with them, but I was there opening day, today, 15 years ago with my best friend for 25 years, and we had a blast. We rode the Rocket Rods as much as we could, and today will always hold a special place for me. I know most would like to forget about this period, but I am not one of those. Viva la Rocket Rods... - BroncoBob  38.0 #5325 5:31PM
I loved the Rocket Rods and one ride I'm glad to have on video tape so I can relive the memories!! - kueenofhearts  282.2 #1042 6:12PM
Welcome back. You should check out the post Duchess_SMK made on May 21st - Linzee  1188.6 #146 6:13PM
I remember the decoder cards. I wish they still handed those out. I remember always trying to figure out what the symbols all spelled out. - Tiggerific  341.7 #699 6:39PM
I think admin included a copy of them in MouseWait P - GrumpyPirateDad  1936.2 #86 6:54PM
Yup. They're under the 'Resources' tab. Lots of good info there. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 6:55PM
I heard you could also get a copy from the bazaar across from the attraction. Reportedly, they'll just copy it and its yours. If it's true, I am not sure... I have never attempted it. - TaraInDisneyland  25.2 #6502 7:50PM
I don't know how I missed this. 😱 - bluefairy  643.8 #313 7:31PM
As always... Love you posts!!! I learn something new every time!!!!! - Boundin  711.7 #272 8:36PM
Thanks for posting! Ugh..I had so many decoder cards.....where are they now? 😕 - indyRocks  373.7 #609 8:45PM
So cool !!! - snakeinmyboot40  394.0 #571 9:03PM
I missed the entire Summer of Hidden Mysteries somehow. Thanks for digging up these links. They were fun to watch. - GrumpyPirateDad  1936.2 #86 9:53PM
I missed this! We didn't go to the parks that summer so this was very fun to read about, thanks!! Great photos too. Man...my 8 y/o loves Indy so much, this would be so exciting for him!! - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 11:03PM
Sad to have missed this before our more than one trip a year. - PrincessAuroraMomma  596.0 #342 11:01AM
