This time two days ago I was in Disneyland. Now I'm back at the office in my cube. The amount of sadness cannot be measured. Anyone else feel empty after visiting Disneyland and getting slapped in the face by "reality"?
It was one year ago today that I joined MW. I had no idea the impact that joining a wait time app/Disneyland message board would have on my life. I attended a couple if meet ups early on but never introduced myself. The MW Family Reunion is when I first met some MWers, them being The Strawberries, SueBayou, Vinylchaser, Song and Dawna.

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.

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!
