I've been obsessed with all things Disney for as long as I can remember. I made my first trip to Disneyland at 2 months old and haven't stopped going since. I'm married to a CM and try to visit the parks at least once a week.

Hurray for your upcoming visit, there's no better place to celebrate! Unfortunately there is a large private event in DL that night and the park is closing early to accommodate event guests. Hopefully your day in the park will be one to remember despite the shorter hours! I'm always bummed as peak season ends to see such short hours but somehow it always works out to be enough time to accomplish e More...
Absolutely, guests of all ages are welcome. They have some specialty non-alcoholic beverages in addition to their adult menu that I hear are quite tasty. I prefer WOC viewing here over anywhere else. Good news, they discontinued the fee for staying for the show a while back. I'd recommend arriving at least 15-20 minutes before closing to make sure you can get a table. :D If you haven't tried them 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!
