#DapperDay Mark Twain... My favorite part of Dapper Day! It was easy to envision days gone by with so many wearing vintage clothing. A couple got engaged at the front of the boat as we took off. It was amazing to look at the dock and feel like you went back in time as dapper passengers waved and came aboard.
OneDayAlice and I trying to be cute and Fall Dapper Day 2013. It was my first Dapper Day experience and I have to tell you it was amazing and tons of fun. If you haven't gone you must. I love you baby (Nicole) and thank you for taking me.
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:
Happy 19th birthday Indy!
