 Best Post of the Day 3-3-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 3rd, 1995. The Indiana Jones Adventure, Temple of the Forbidden Eye attraction is officially opened to the public in Disneyland's Adventureland.

In attendance for the attraction's debut is filmmaker George Lucas, Michael Eisner, and several celebrities: Dan AykroydCarrie Fisher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wayne Gretzky and Dennis Miller to name a few.

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.

Happy 19th birthday Indy!

I can't believe it either! Seeing 19 years ago makes me feel old.  - Atora  2702.2 #64 2:35PM
Thank you! I know right?! Makes me feel πŸ‘΅ - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:49AM

πŸ‘‹ hi there! Thank YOU for always telling me you enjoy them! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 9:25AM
*clear throat- indy and the temple of the forbidden eye is a very complicated and awesome ride. its has so many ride elements so it can be know to shut down a bit.its average wait time is 60 but 40 up to two hours can be expected.ride offer fastpass and single rider options.a few hidden mickeys are in the ride and the skeleton know as "bones" a skeleton that has a pair of mickey ears with bones name on it.a few details about this ride is on the load station on the walls there are two snakes whos eyes glow red. the vechicles are still state of the art and can be programed to move more than 1,000 ways and engineers did a great job in making the cars be the star attraction. many argue that there are 3 rooms to enter but there is one door its the door when working that moves left to ride to the selected room. look back after you enter and you can sometimes see the door slide. last year we saw new lights and visual upgrades and mara voices but was quickly changed back.last but not least the room with the rolling ball...... all i can say is look at the wall..........and last but not least you can find idvandalskippercm working this attraction frequently although with btrr opening soon ...????? - pikaplaid  7878.7 #17 8:50AM
Daaaaang pikarich, your thumbs must be tired. 😳😜 teehee, thanks for adding all that! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 9:32AM
Haha thanks Pikarich. I don't know BTMRR anymore and now having a little one at home it'll be difficult to train there based on the training schedules. So I'll be pretty much at Indy :) - IDVandalSkipperCM  2752.5 #63 10:52AM

That was my first year with a pass, and rode it a bunch. Got a whole stack of the decoder cards they used to hand out. And I always pulled the rope! - redsoxcarlos  5858.2 #25 10:21AM
Those decoder cards were rad huh?! 😎 love the interactive stuff in line as well! Thanks for sharing!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:55AM
We were there 2 weeks after it opened on a random Wednesday and I remember it practically being walk on lol!!! The CMs didn't even make us go through the whole queue there were so few people riding it! I still have my decoder card too! Sigh...the good old days... - missariel33  2115.6 #91 10:30AM
Oh and thank you Duchess! - missariel33  2115.6 #91 10:31AM
😳 no way! How lucky! Thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:56AM
Wish I was there . Sorry Dr. Jones - ChristopherRobin661  281.1 #1184 10:36AM
😊 I heard the lines were nuts!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:57AM
I used to love this ride (kind of hard on my back sometimes but the ride design is quite amazing). My favorite part if either the bridge or the rolling boulder - missmimi90  2079.9 #92 11:06AM
It is kinda hard on the back...but when they added that extra cousin last year it helped a bit I think. Thanks for answering my question! I think you were the only one! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:58AM
Can't believe it's been that long.  - Disneyland-4-life  95.3 #3877 11:08AM
Right?! Crazy!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:59AM
Love this ride. Don't know what happened to my decoder card. Have had to walk off, but never miss it. - Winnie111286  37731.6 #1 11:33AM
Me too! Bet that walk off was cool! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 6:59AM
I was there!!!!! With my mommy. The end if the line was in front of Coke Corner on Main st. We waited in line 4 hours. We each received the decider cards and made attempts at deciding while waiting in line. That queue was the scariest/most intimidating of all. The ride did not disappoint in the excitement of the hype. This also would be the last "opening day" experience I would have with my mom. Memories to last a lifetime! Happy Anniversary Indie!    - PixiePirateMaid  355.6 #756 11:50AM
😳 whoa! Now that's a long line! That queue could totally be intimidating and scary if you don't know how far till it ends! Awe! Thanks for  sharing that with us!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:04AM
Don't forget that with Indy coming in, the Jungle Cruise also had to be changed, with the addition of the upstairs queue and one of the early scenes were taken out (it was in the area of the Indy exit, where you can see the boats go by before the jumping tiger). Also, the time period of Indy fit perfectly with the story of Adventureland- being it a 1930s-1940s era in the exotic jungles of Africa and India. - BaseballMickey  9025.0 #14 11:57AM
Yes!  This! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2752.5 #63 12:06PM
Thanks for adding that! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:04AM
Thanks Duchess! We love this attraction. Such a joy in my favorite  Adventureland!  - misschurro  9700.3 #12 1:12PM
πŸ’— hi churro! We should try and enjoy it together sometime! πŸ‘― - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:05AM

Thank you! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‹ - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:06AM
Another thing most people don't know about Indy is that for each ride, the system makes lots of small, different movements and changes. Altogether, there are over 160,000 different ride possibilities, so you'll most likely never get the exact same ride! - Mickeyfan816  212.9 #1977 2:31PM
I watched something on one of the travel channels about this. So awesome!  πŸ˜Ž - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #24 2:48PM

We Disney fans don't seem to mind the lines when something's new huh? 😊 thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:08AM
We got stuck recently in the bug room, except the lights were out and it was PITCH BLACK with all the big noises.  It was super freaky and scared my niece so bad she didn't want to go again when they offered us a repeat ride! - Normstar  102.8 #3745 3:08PM
😳😩 oh my gosh! I would have been freaking out! That part is by far the scariest!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:09AM
Awesome, Indiana Jones and I share the same B-day.  It's fitting that this was my first ride of the day!! - DivaDeVil  21.0 #7849 5:19PM
Awe! Happy belated birthday! Hope it was amazing!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:10AM
I remember the tv commercials for this, too! Ah I hope it's open next Monday!! - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #24 6:50PM
I forgot about those! I should have added one lol! I hope you get to enjoy it Monday as well!  - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:11AM

You play games against people to earn points on this list, and you make points for a monthly total playing individually but those points don't cross over.  - secretagentangel  12863.1 #9 1:05PM

Easily manage the social side of MouseWait for Disneyland and Disney World with our mousetopia app for iOS. Post to the DL or WDW side, use your Stickers, and utilize our MouseWait Messenger. See what's new here


Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  377.4 #0 2:46PM

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  5171.2 #30 11:41PM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.2 #238 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.2 #238 9:06AM
I had the same issues more so in the park  - Plumiegirl  10886.1 #11 5:42PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  12863.1 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10886.1 #11 9:55PM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  12863.1 #9 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  5068.7 #33 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1457.1 #141 7:07AM

I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1123.6 #196 1:19PM
You're allowed to do it from the sign in front of each attraction or if you go on it a lot and can see the line is shorter/longer you can post that.  - secretagentangel  12863.1 #9 9:04PM
