My boys, aged 5 and 6, were and still are so thrilled to have gotten these during our time in the parks (Aug. 19th - Aug. 23rd)! And they were thrilled to have received extra badges and stickers from the CM's! Made their first visit so memorable! Thank you CM's!
Hmmm...was it just me or is it fact that yesterday, Sun., the park was relatively quiet but being a Mon. today, the park was quite packed? We have found that on Sub., the rides were either walk ons or 20-30 mins wait. Today (Mon., lines were 35 mins wait max.
Does any MW know if the Double Tree Guest Suites have a Disney View room? We will be there next month and since it will be hubb's and my two sons' (5 and 6 year old) very first time there, I thought it would be nice if we could get a Disney view room.
This is for @MissShelley I just want to say thank you for writing such a great article on driving from Vancouver to Disneyland! 👍❤ I have read it numerous times and I admire your writing. Thanks for writing such great articles and I hope to read more of your articles in the future. Keep up the excellent writing that you do! 😊
Did you know... Have you ever wondered where Disney get all their scents from? Right from Main St. to the rides? Well, guess no more. http://www.tampabay.com/features/humaninterest/whats-the-smell-the-mahaffey-theater-gets-a-signature-scent/1203774
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!
