 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!

Great post! I remember going to the AP preview of Indy, can't believe that was 19 years ago! - Admin 10:27AM
I can't believe it either! Seeing 19 years ago makes me feel old.  - Atora  2702.2 #56 2:35PM
Thank you! I know right?! Makes me feel πŸ‘΅ - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 6:49AM

πŸ‘‹ hi there! Thank YOU for always telling me you enjoy them! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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 ...????? - pikarich  6223.5 #22 8:50AM
Daaaaang pikarich, your thumbs must be tired. 😳😜 teehee, thanks for adding all that! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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  2596.9 #59 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  3827.7 #42 10:21AM
Those decoder cards were rad huh?! 😎 love the interactive stuff in line as well! Thanks for sharing!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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 #80 10:30AM
Oh and thank you Duchess! - missariel33  2115.6 #80 10:31AM

😊 I heard the lines were nuts!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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  2034.2 #86 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  6549.5 #19 6:58AM
Can't believe it's been that long.  - Disneyland-4-life  95.3 #3759 11:08AM
Right?! Crazy!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 6:59AM
Love this ride. Don't know what happened to my decoder card. Have had to walk off, but never miss it. - Winnie111286  20000.7 #3 11:33AM
Me too! Bet that walk off was cool! - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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 #695 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  6549.5 #19 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  8006.9 #11 11:57AM
Yes!  This! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2596.9 #59 12:06PM
Thanks for adding that! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:04AM
Thanks Duchess! We love this attraction. Such a joy in my favorite  Adventureland!  - misschurro  7612.3 #12 1:12PM

Thank you! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‹ - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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 #1901 2:31PM
I watched something on one of the travel channels about this. So awesome!  πŸ˜Ž - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #20 2:48PM
πŸ‘ yes! Thanks so much for adding that!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:07AM
I remember waiting in the longest line EVER for this attraction! I was a junior in high school, and was super stoked to go on it, the wait didn't matter at all. Thank you for another great post! - Atora  2702.2 #56 2:34PM
We Disney fans don't seem to mind the lines when something's new huh? 😊 thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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 #3631 3:08PM
😳😩 oh my gosh! I would have been freaking out! That part is by far the scariest!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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  18.7 #7966 5:19PM
Awe! Happy belated birthday! Hope it was amazing!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:10AM
I remember the tv commercials for this, too! Ah I hope it's open next Monday!! - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #20 6:50PM
I forgot about those! I should have added one lol! I hope you get to enjoy it Monday as well!  - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:11AM

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  7416.9 #14 9:06PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.7 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7519 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  446.1 #522 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  182.3 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.6 #1045 5:04PM
