MW member since we got our AP in July, I love everything Disney especially seeing my kids faces light up when they see the characters! Wish I could make it to the parks more often but it's kind of a drive from AZ to Disney :(

Disney Magic strikes again! We asked if Belle would have a meet and greet today, the CM apologized and said she wouldn't be holding one today because she had a busy schedule, kinda bummed about this we got in line so our little one could meet the rest of the princesses, just as we were halfway a CM came and pulled us our of line because "someone really special would like to meet the prince" the re More...

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!
