MW was born in 2009 out of a deep love and respect for Disneyland. I wanted to make the Magic of the Parks available to anyone, 24/7. Connect with fellow Disney fans, watch live videos, images, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Thanks for your patience and kind words everyone! We're still fine tuning the main Lounge picture display. If you press on the picture it will take you to the full quality version. We found a lot of bugs over the past several days while troubleshooting this problem, so everything should run a lot smoother now.
That's it for tonight! Next week, the final two Magical Map Buckets from the BaseballMickey Collection, and more! Check the store periodically to get a BE MINE Sticker while you can, we will release a few more of these over the next few days and then retire it until next year!
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!
