I wanted to wish my other half a wonderful and happy anniversary. Thank you for being such a wonderfully loving, caring, generous and funny man. Your heart is pure gold and I love you more than words can say. Thank you for putting up with my crazy behavior at times and being my strength when I was weak. Thank you for creating so many amazing memories not only at Disneyland but everywhere! Four yea More...
A RAK for Captain America poster we got at the AP preview. I don't know the dimensions of it but it's a decent size. Only requirement is that you are not attending the preview for the meet and greet. You can add for others if you chose to.
So this was too cool I had to share. We weren't supposed to be here the rest of this month but came this evening to close out TLM since it's due for a long closure. All the CMs there were rooting for us to close out with it (we ended up riding the attraction straight for roughly 50 minutes). CM Kate gave us Honorary citizen buttons for "Mermaid Record" and happily ever after buttons signed by Arie More...
It's #RAK time again. It's for this Splash POH LE pin. I figure it's good timing since it's reopening soon. This time I am stealing an idea that looked interesting! You may ONLY add for another MWer, so no adds for yourself are allowed! You must say why you are adding for them! I'll pick a winner 3/9!
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!
