 Best Post of the Day 3-3-15
Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 3rd, 1995. The Indiana Jones Adventure, and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye attraction is officially opened to the public in Disneylands' 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.


To watch some scenes from the opening ceremony:

Great write up!  I rode it a lot that first year.  I think that was one of tthe first rides to have a more interesting pre-ride, with the bat cave, pole, rope, etc. And back then they used to give out the decoder cards. I still have a small stack. Great ride! πŸ˜€ - redsoxcarlos  4891.4 #31 6:16AM
Thanks! Yes the decoder cards were cool! Happy they came up with those to keep us busy in the long line. ;) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 4:47PM
And in the early days, the lines sure were long! - redsoxcarlos  4891.4 #31 8:51PM

I was a freshman in HS and went with my church's youth group. We waited for what seemed like forever to ride it. I remember the hallway with the spikes that came out of the ceiling being the coolest part. I remember being disappointed that there wasn't any huge drops etc but still a fun ride. - Wreck-It-Ronnie  9.8 #12201 7:55AM
Hey I was a freshman in 95 too! Cool! Those spikes ARE cool! We'll you COULD count that part where Indy is hanging from the ball as a drop....but I totally get what you mean! Thanks for your comment! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:05PM
I love reading these. Thank you. Back in class :) lol - RickChavez  3685.2 #48 8:04AM

Rode this when my niece and nephew were little. They screamed the whole time, couldn't hear them just saw terrified faces and open mouths.😱 - WishIWereThere  330.1 #839 8:47AM
bhahha it really is quite thrilling! Is that that the only time you rode it? - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:08PM
No, we got to ride it many more times, it became one of their favorites. 😘 - WishIWereThere  330.1 #839 5:44PM
Love this attraction!  It holds a dear place in my heart. If I hadn't learned Indy, I wouldn't have met some of my closest Disney friends!  Wish I could be there today to help celebrate, but I'll be right next door instead!  Have fun to those who make it to the temple today! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2677.9 #62 8:57AM

well gosh thank you! I love doing em! It's just been harder these days with baby number 3 and homeschooling! I really appreciate you letting me know you like em! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:13PM
Can't believe it opened that long ago. Seems like just yesterday. - sheraemccoy  10.4 #0 9:52AM
right?! I'm feeling old today! LOL - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:14PM
I was there opening day. It was CRAZY. A mob of people all rushed to then endless rope queue that was all throughout Adventureland. The CMs kept saying the ride was broken down but not too many people got out of line and it kept moving. I think it was their strategy hoping people would get out of line. I think we waited almost 2 hours to get on at rope drop. I was a bit late to work that day. - DLKenCA  3330.9 #51 9:56AM
s0 you are over 40 yrd old omggggg. - pikaplaid  7274.1 #17 10:14AM
That's some serious dedication! I'm impressed! AND you were late for work?! LOL Well, happy it didn't end in a sad story....like you getting fired because of it or something! and pikarich you're silly! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:17PM
back before the fast pass days, the line during its opening weeks stretched all the way down to main street and had an average wait time from 4 to 6 hrs. the ride vehicle is first in its class and is used for wdw dinosaur .the giant snake has been official named Fluffy. there is a hidden mickey in the offie room after the safety video of a life magazine and under the magnifying glass is mickey. even though there is 3 rooms of destiny*****Spoiler look away if you dont want to know) many believe that is are 3 room which its the door themselves that move .look behind you next time you ride and you can see this in action. the ride got an upgrade and months long refurb which upgraded the face of mara and remember the creepy kiddy voice which was change after voiced and email showed that guests didnt enjoy it as much. SUPER SPOILER ALERT SKIP THE BOLD -----THE BIGGEST SECRECT TO THE BALL ROOM IS A SHOCKER BUT DISNEY DID OFFICIAL REVEAL THIS ON ON OF THERE ATTRACTION BEHIND THE SCENES NEWS VIDEOΒ  so here goesΒ  a hint do you thinkthe ball actually moves or something else. in the ride itself a pair of mickey ears was placed on a pair of bones and thus gave that skeleton with the hat the name bones. thank you for the history post. indys average wait time is 40 to 60 standby on an average day and up to 90 + on busier days - pikaplaid  7274.1 #17 10:08AM
My understanding is the ball doesn't move. It uses the same effect that the Toy Story zoetrope uses with flashing lights to just appear that it's moving. - turkeylegman  915.2 #235 10:43AM
ill send you a dm - pikaplaid  7274.1 #17 10:52AM

that must have taken you quite awhile to write buddy! Thanks for adding all of it! :) Always so helpful! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:20PM
Thanks for the post. Even though I like this ride, I always thought a mine cart roller coaster (like in Temple of Doom) would have been better. I will say, this is definitely my favorite pre-ride queue though.  - DLtrip  40.9 #5539 10:33AM
OOOH! That would have been WAY cool! I agree! The queue is quite impressive! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:26PM
Thanks for sharing. - Pooh147856  447.2 #21 10:49AM
Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:26PM
Brilliantly informative as always Duchess!!  πŸ˜™ Love this attraction, especially when in the front or back rows!!  Favourite part is a tie between the big snake and the final drop!  Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday πŸ˜€ - RapunzelledColey  145.4 #2936 11:05AM
HI buddy! Thanks! AND you answered my questions!? You ROCK! Good choices! Thanks again! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:27PM
20 years...wow!  I've been on this a ton the last few years as it's my oldest's fav.  So fun to read this and I'll show him the ceremony later too which he'll really enjoy, so thank you!!  My fav part is the bridge. - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #230 12:12PM
I know right?! I can't believe it! So cool you get to enjoy it with the kiddos! I look forward to that! I hope he likes the post too! Thanks for answering my question! That bridge is cool! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:28PM
I'll always remember the time where my fellow Adventureland CMs and I got to rise this after park closing, all in our Adventure costumes. We were a dressed for the occasion. It's always a fun experience to ride an attraction with your co-workers.  - BaseballMickey  8621.5 #14 2:01PM

Wow...you were up early when you posted this!! Thank you for taking your time to school us. ;) Don't really have a favorite part but I've always appreciated the scenic queue, especially when I learned about the Eeyore sign on MW!  - MissAmericaSings  449.0 #543 4:18PM
LOL YES I was! Baby wakes up at 4am every morning. :) Thankfully he nurses then goes back to sleep so I do too! Thanks for answering my questions! Not many did! The queue really is so interesting compared to most of the attractions! They really did a great job! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 4:44PM
Ha! Loved that short vid. My favorite scene probably has to be the part going across that rickety bridge. There is so much to take in at that spot, plus it's a little scary and fun. Thank you for the wonderful post.😘 - misschurro  8678.8 #13 5:19PM
CHURRO My love! HI! Great choice for a favorite! There really is a great view from there! Thank YOU for taking the time to comment! I'm sure you're very busy getting dolled up for your sticker party! xxx - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #22 5:33PM
I also like those two pics of Tony Baxter. It's very cool to see the then and now photos of him       - misschurro  8678.8 #13 5:34PM
Yes!! In fact, I am getting ready for the sticker party! Thank you! 😘 - misschurro  8678.8 #13 5:35PM
My favorite thing has yet to happen.  I think a walk off on this attraction would be EPIC! - HookemMickey  118.6 #3407 5:40PM
I went a couple of weeks after it opened. We waited in line for 2hrs. with our decoder cards. I had only been dating my hubby for a couple of months when he took me on a date to see it. Guess I should have known then he was a keeper. My favorite part is where you whip around and pause for fluffy to strike. Thanks for the great post.Β  - Bassplayerswife  1056.8 #204 7:41PM
Once again Duchess... Great job!!!  Love your history posts! When Indy first opened I couldn't wait to go through each door! My favorite part is the hall with the blow darts!!!πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨ - Boundin  827.1 #261 8:31PM

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  3467.1 #50 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14189 10:12AM
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  946.6 #227 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.6 #227 9:06AM
I had the same issues more so in the park  - Plumiegirl  10796.6 #9 5:42PM
