I don't know if any MW'ers out there like to cross stitch but Thomas Kinkade and the Disney Company released a collection of four different cross stitch kits. It is called The Dreams Collection and the prints are beautiful. They come in two sizes 16 x 12 and 5 x 7.
Finally got to watch The Princess and the Frog on one of the Starz Channels. The movie was great!!! But is it just me but I'm finding the Starz Channels kind of racist. They have a channel called Starz in Black and that is the channel they showed the movie on!! I don't get it.
Hey Marieeezy!! Did you know that there is an app you can download called "ABC Player". It shows past episodes of shows on ABC. Well I wanted to let you know that your episode of Wipeout is on the app.
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. One week ago tomorrow I lost my sweet sister in law. She went down south to take her children (ages 14 years and 2 years) to Disneyland. On Monday morning she woke up in the hotel room not feeling well. She thought it was an asthma attack. She then mentioned to my father in law her chest was hurting. He called 911. She was looking out the window to watch fo More...
August 6, 1961 - Flying Saucers opens at Disneyland Park
It was the dawn of the Space Age. Yuri Gagarin had become the first cosmonaut to orbit the Earth, but man's dreams of outer space still drew largely from comic books and campy science fiction movies. Leave it to Disneyland to envision a futuristic version of the bumper cars: individual pods styled after the UFOs of sci-fi lore that hovere 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!
