My sister and I were headed to Earl's in DTD for b-fast and stumbled upon a Nintendo promotional event. Here's Luigi kicking me right in the dome. There wasn't a rep around, so I have no idea when the event starts.
Thought I would share something I haven't seen before. There's a penny press in the back of Starcade featuring the stars of Wreck-it Ralph. Too bad I didn't have the change to get any. I like how the machine is different from the others around the parks.
3 fastpasses (3:20-4:20) for RSR behind the fence area guarding Slim in the entrance to A Bug's Land. The tickets are currently located where the posts intersect as shown by the red circle in the bottom pic. Please post if you find them. Good luck to those in the park.
Greetings guys and ghouls, although not directly related to Disney, the Lego Store in Downtown Disney will be doing their monthly mini-build today at 5 pm today. This is an event where children aged 6-14 can get a FREE Lego figure based on the month's major holiday. Today's mini-build will be a black cat (Google: October Lego Mini-Build for an idea of what the figure looks like). So if you're in t More...
Greetings friends and fiends, my sister "sinderemma" suggested I join Mousewait a few months back when I got my smartphone. It was actually my first downloaded app, but I am far too shy to actually post anything. I figured today would be a good day as any to go from lurker to ummmm.....non-lurker. Have a magical day and hopefully I'll meet some of you at the parks.
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!
