We're finally here! We spent 5 days in Burbank and did all the "LA" stuff and saved the best for last. We've checked into the BWPP, unpacked, and next thing I know hubby's now sound asleep. I went out for some ice, came back 2 minutes later and he's out. I'll give him another 30 minutes and then time for some magic!
This is my first time posting so for forgive me if I'm not doing this correctly. My husband and I are arriving in Anaheim on December 4th and we fly out early on the 8th. What is the chance that the Indiana Jones ride will be running? I know it says that it doesn't reopen until the 8th but a few years ago when we where there Splash Mountain opened 2 days before it was scheduled to after its refurb More...
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!
