I really wanted to thank the incredible MWer Zendurella for this amazing RAK! As I'm sure most of you know, POTC is my absolute favorite ride at Disneyland. Zendurella handmade this mat, framed it, and put these Disney dollars of Pirates of the Caribbean in it. I am so beyond grateful for this, and just really wanted to let her know by posting this on MouseWait how much I really really really rea More...
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (aka: Mark Twain) has always been one of my favorite authors. As Disney lovers, I think we could all appreciate this quote of his: "Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." (Pic taken tonight just before closing)
Travolta slaughtered one of my favorite singers name during the Oscar singing of "Let it Go". Here is my "Travoltified" MW name....hmmmm....at least it's still Disney related! 😂😂😂. What's your Travoltified MW name?
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!
