Advice- I know that on super busy days Dland (like New Year's Eve) may stop selling tickets at the booths for crowd control. What about if you have ticket vouchers? Any thoughts/experience with this? Thanks!
Feeling a little nervous about our LAX to HOJO transfer due to reviews I have now found..didn't find before although I looked :(. I booked a private van through Prime Time Shuttles for our family. Thoughts???
It looks like we can possibly suprise our kids with a Dland trip about Dec 14-18. Nervous about the crowds/weather but origionally thought only later in Christmas break would be a possibility due to my teaching schedule. Advice on where to find cheap Disney stuff for our kids to open when giving them tickets. We are in WA state. Thanks for your thoughts!
We only get to go to Disneyland once a year, if we are lucky. I am a teacher so unfortunately only the busiest times of the year are an option for us. In your opinion, which would be better to visit the parks this year: January 1-4 (Christmas Break) or March 24-27 (Spring Break)?
Does anyone know when Small World will close down to remove the holiday overlay this January? I know that the majority of other stuff is closed starting Jan. 7 but can't find anything on Small World. Thanks!
Thank you so much PinkElephants for the RAK! My Lil Guy kept saying WOW is all this for ME??!!! Couldn't have come at a better time. Our area has been ravaged by a Wild Fire burning over 20,000 acres, 70+ homes, etc all within 2 days and it is still burning. We needed a pick-me-up! So thank you a million times for your generosity! You made his day and then some!
Not live but from our trip in June. Just found this pic of one of my daughters, hubby, and son. It was my son's first trip on Splash Mountain. He loved it! Just this morning he told me Please don't make it a lot of days until we get to go to My Dizzyland! I agree buddy!
When is the best time to visit Disneyland? I teach September-Mid June so it is very difficult to go during the average school year. Also, what are some must see sights near Disneyland that can be reached by a short drive (i.e. beaches, etc.). Planning our next trip!
New to MouseWait after visiting behind the scenes for a bit. I hope that it helps fill the void since we can only visit Disneyland once a year, if we are lucky. I grew up with magical memories of Disney and love doing the same for my 3 mini ChurroChompers and Hubby. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Disneyland and can't wait to go back! And, yep, I have visited the FAQ page! ;)
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!
