Been a long time due to a fairly horrific year for me and mine, and I'm not sure how many people in here even know who I am any more; however, after a lack of Apple devices in my life for one reason or another I'm finally back online with a new iPad I got on points and I have to say MW looks AMAZING on it especially in the format it's in now! Anyway, happy Thanksgiving, MWers old and new. Hope yo More...
✨🌟Pixie Dust please🌟✨. I just entered a competition linked to the Once Upon a Time TV series which would get my three kids and me to Disneyland from here in Australia for 5 nights staying at the Grand. A few MWers know the trauma my babies and I have had to face recently culminating last weekend, changing our lives forever. This prize would mean SO much to us right now. It's a needle in More...
How about more video from the party? Maybe some interviews or something. That'd be cool for those of us who can't be there. Especially for those who, say, got up before 4am to be in the lounge for this...
I just want to say how magical it was to spend the entire day in the parks with Butterlina and then with PrincessCarmen this past weekend. I've made the most amazing friends on MW and nothing is impossible
ATTENTION MWers: Could we - just for this one day - NOT enter RAKs or other posts or make new posts that are NOT related to our friend LaceySue? Please? It's really not much to ask and it shows respect to the memory of someone who was truly pivotal in making the lounge what it is today, whether or not you were here to see it - and it shows respect to the community of which you are now a part du More...
May I just say how nice it is to see pics of foods that are 1) of items other than Matterhorn Sundaes and other foods that get repeatedly posted, and 2) photographed BEFORE the poster started eating it :)
Very excited that my favourite little nieces will be in the parks with their parents for their first ever Disneyland visit at the end of next month as the middle niece - Grace - will be dancing in one of the parades! They are SO excited!
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!
