My grandpa was head of the Music Dept of Disney Studios for over 30 years and my grandma was an animator. I grew up going to Disneyland and it's one of my favorite places in the world! My family and I (husband, two daughters) live in Northern California
I thought you guys might appreciate this. My uncle just found this in my grandpa's things. Signed by Walt himself!!! I'm officially adopting "in the pink" as my new phrase. 😊 so amazing to see Walt's actual signature on his letterhead. I'm in awe!
For @antetr95...the inaugural 10K medal! It's beautiful. A word of advice, however. Take it off your neck if you go on Screamin'. It flew right off on the first drop. Luckily, it got caught on my ponytail and I was able to grab it just in time 😁😂
#GlassSlipperChallenge! Hi everyone...unfortunately, I won't be able to participate in the WDW Glass Slipper Challenge (10K on Saturday, 1/2 marathon on Sunday) this year. The dates are Feb 22nd and Feb 23rd. If anyone is interested in purchasing my bib for these races, please DM me ASAP!

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!
