 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.

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  5498.3 #26 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 #23 4:47PM
And in the early days, the lines sure were long! - redsoxcarlos  5498.3 #26 8:51PM

HEY YOU! Hope you're well! Thank you! Right?! So much detail! I Love it too! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 5:02PM
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 #12355 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 #23 5:05PM
I love reading these. Thank you. Back in class :) lol - RickChavez  3685.4 #49 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  331.9 #831 8:47AM
bhahha it really is quite thrilling! Is that that the only time you rode it? - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 5:08PM
No, we got to ride it many more times, it became one of their favorites. 😘 - WishIWereThere  331.9 #831 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  2739.1 #61 8:57AM

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 #23 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  3512.0 #50 9:56AM
s0 you are over 40 yrd old omggggg. - pikaplaid  7704.9 #16 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 #23 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  7704.9 #16 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 #240 10:43AM
ill send you a dm - pikaplaid  7704.9 #16 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 #23 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  44.5 #5382 10:33AM
OOOH! That would have been WAY cool! I agree! The queue is quite impressive! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 5:26PM
Thanks for sharing. - Pooh147856  453.4 #20 10:49AM
Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  146.0 #2936 11:05AM
HI buddy! Thanks! AND you answered my questions!? You ROCK! Good choices! Thanks again! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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 #236 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 #23 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  8917.7 #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  453.1 #547 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 #23 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  9342.6 #12 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 #23 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  9342.6 #12 5:34PM
Yes!! In fact, I am getting ready for the sticker party! Thank you! 😘 - misschurro  9342.6 #12 5:35PM
My favorite thing has yet to happen.  I think a walk off on this attraction would be EPIC! - HookemMickey  118.6 #3426 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  1149.9 #186 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 #265 8:31PM

I thought it was just me. Lol. Someone needs to hit the refresh button. :) - DeadliestPassholder  448.5 #554 2:10PM
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  11782.5 #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  10876.8 #11 9:55PM

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  4686.5 #38 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14372 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  946.2 #232 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.2 #232 9:06AM

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  11782.5 #9 9:06PM

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  1088.6 #205 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  11782.5 #9 9:04PM
