And here is my MouseWait story.,,,video link is at the bottom.....My love for Disney has run deep since I was a little boy..I went to the parks every weekend and all I thought about was working there when I was old enough...Kinda crazy to think now that I am the 3rd generation in my direct family whom have been Cast Memebers...My Grandfather in 1956, my Dad in the late 80s until 2000s and then me...after I stopped working at Disney and got out of college I entered the corp world and my life away from Disney slowly but surly started to go away..I would not even go to the parks for years at a time....I had recently lost my job like many others did in 2009 and a friend of mine whom was still a CM asked me if I wanted to go one day...So he signed me in and I had the whole parks to myself that day and was like a little kid all over again..I was so happy about it my little sister bought me a pass so she would have somebody to go with for my Christmas...that is about the same time I downloaded MW and the rest was history....Lacey started the very first meetup in Feb of 2010 and we only had about 15 people show up but it was the beginning of what it has now become....60 people on any given Saturday for Astro Blaster meetup..I cant begin to thank Admin enough for what MouseWait has done for me in my life...I would have never imagined that I would have ever met all of the wonderful friends that I have over the past three years...Its funny how in the beginning we all had our MW friends and are Regular friends..now its just friends and has been for a long time...We have all laughed together, cried together and have always been there for one another in times of need..I dont think without MouseWait I would have been able to keep my sanity while unemployed..I cant express the gratitude I have for you Admin..What you have done for my life and so many others is beyond words...So beyond words that in my video I just left it with song and pictures of some of the wonderful people I have met, ALL the laughter we shared, the memorable times we shared, the dreams that came true and the life long friends we have made along the way...Thank you Admin and thank you all the MouseWaiters whom every day make this place what it is..its really remarkable where MouseWait has gone in just three years and the places its going....I cant wait to meet those of you this weekend whom I have yet to meet and look forward to seeing those ever so familiar ones....

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?
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a magnificent Monday!
