 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 #53 2:35PM
Thank you! I know right?! Makes me feel πŸ‘΅ - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 6:49AM

πŸ‘‹ hi there! Thank YOU for always telling me you enjoy them! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  5753.2 #22 8:50AM
Daaaaang pikarich, your thumbs must be tired. 😳😜 teehee, thanks for adding all that! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  2531.0 #59 10:52AM

First and only!   - MeridaFan  4243.8 #36 10:00AM
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  2992.2 #47 10:21AM
Those decoder cards were rad huh?! 😎 love the interactive stuff in line as well! Thanks for sharing!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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 #75 10:30AM
Oh and thank you Duchess! - missariel33  2115.6 #75 10:31AM
😳 no way! How lucky! Thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 6:56AM
Wish I was there . Sorry Dr. Jones - ChristopherRobin661  274.0 #1155 10:36AM
😊 I heard the lines were nuts!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  2033.3 #82 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  6475.6 #19 6:58AM
Can't believe it's been that long.  - Disneyland-4-life  42.2 #5213 11:08AM
Right?! Crazy!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  15842.9 #3 11:33AM
Me too! Bet that walk off was cool! - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  355.1 #679 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  6475.6 #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  7855.7 #11 11:57AM
Yes!  This! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2531.0 #59 12:06PM
Thanks for adding that! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 7:04AM
Thanks Duchess! We love this attraction. Such a joy in my favorite  Adventureland!  - misschurro...  7120.6 #15 1:12PM
πŸ’— hi churro! We should try and enjoy it together sometime! πŸ‘― - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 7:05AM
Oh goodness! LET'S!!!! - misschurro...  7120.6 #15 7:15AM

Thank you! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‹ - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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 #1865 2:31PM
I watched something on one of the travel channels about this. So awesome!  πŸ˜Ž - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #18 2:48PM
πŸ‘ yes! Thanks so much for adding that!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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 #53 2:34PM
We Disney fans don't seem to mind the lines when something's new huh? 😊 thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  99.4 #3651 3:08PM
😳😩 oh my gosh! I would have been freaking out! That part is by far the scariest!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #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  16.6 #8313 5:19PM
Awe! Happy belated birthday! Hope it was amazing!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 7:10AM
I remember the tv commercials for this, too! Ah I hope it's open next Monday!! - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #18 6:50PM
I forgot about those! I should have added one lol! I hope you get to enjoy it Monday as well!  - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 7:11AM
I waited like 2 hours for Indiana Jones during Grad Night in 1998 - Chumash28  1220.0 #149 6:55PM
No way! My grad night was that year too! 😊 - Duchess_SMK  6475.6 #19 7:12AM

My memory is hazy, but I do remember being in the line for the ride the month of the opening, and it extending all the way to Main Street!!! - Grindcore  565.9 #371 9:09PM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127107 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5755.1 #21 8:10PM

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 April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM



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  643.2 #323 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7386 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 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  175.6 #2343 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.8 #1180 5:04PM
