I took my son to the parks on Tuesday for his birthday and we had the best time. From a birthday call from Goofy and breakfast at Flo's to dessert at the Bayou and closing our trip with a trip around the world, my mini and I had a great trip celebrating his birthday. So much so, that we will definitely be saving up for APs for next year. I can't wait to be back in the parks!
I love this app! Thanks to a recent RAK by @rdaann I've learned so many new tips that will make my trip in June so much better. A special thanks to @steamboatminnie and @goofymom2boys! We are going with a tight budget and didn't think we would be able to do any special dining to celebrate the occasion. Now thanks to you two, we will be celebrating my son's birthday and my in-laws' 20th anniversary More...
Hi Everyone! I've been a lurker for a little while and wanted to introduce myself. I've always lived about an hour away from the parks and really enjoyed my family trips that we took every two to three years. I've been lucky enough to continue the tradition and have been at least once each year, for the past four years, with my own sons. I'm hoping to get our first AP next year.
I've decided to 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!
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!
