#retroday My dad, aunt, uncle and grandparents, 1968. On a trip a year later my Dad was asked by Disneyland security to please leave, due to long hair! Thankfully, it didn't ruin his love for the place!
Talk about retro! Just found my dad's pictures from his trip in back in '58. He went on Autopia with his brother and wasn't allowed to drive because he was too little. 40 years later, I wasn't allowed to drive and so he took over for me. He finally got his chance!
Pictures of my family at the castle with my parents and Grandparents, in front of the Matterhorn, w always got those big lollipops! Bottom right has the Swiss Family treehouse in the background. My Dad and Grandparents are gone now and these memories and pictures are priceless to me.
#RetroDay - I got the idea for this from Lumpia King Chris! I posted this on Instagram a couple months ago. It's not fully lined up, but it works LOL! The pic was taken in the Summer of 1995 during the 40th anniversary. I was 3, and my cousin was 6!
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!
Have you been on this attraction? If so, what is your favorite part or scene?
