The new Disney Visa Meet and Greet voucher (and rules) as of this month. You must redeem at Kingswell Camera on the same day that you took the picture. Not valid on any other photopass or ride pictures, non-transferable.
I knew that I had seen "Weekday Ping" dressed as Mulan before! I had to steal the left pic from another post (iamdugsmaster, maybe?) since I didn't see her last week, but the one on the right I took with her for Lunar New Year.
#WANTED! Last week I was able to take pictures with all of the 10 Long Lost Friends group, but somehow I missed getting a card from the Sleeping Beauty fairies. I've got extras of many of the others, if anyone has an extra to trade. Thanks!
An interesting thing I never noticed before, but learned from the Dave Smith presentation the other day...the Plaza Pavillion (now home to Jolly Holiday) has two completely different facades. The Main St. side is the white Victorian-ish part on the left and the Adventureland side on the right is part of what is now the Enchanted Tiki Room. Those trees in the middle help disguise the illusion.
The Ariel Undersea Adventure ride at WDW is virtually the same, down to the un-dole-whipped hair, but of course the exterior and queue are completely different. I didn't expect the mural to be different as well.
I don't really consider this a spoiler, as you can't tell very easily where each egg is located, but I'm going to post it in games anyway. ;p The most challenging eggs for me were the Hollywood Backlot and the Wharf.
#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" penn More...
The line for the Princess Royal Walk is thiiiis long. If you want to meet the princes today, the line closes at 4:30 at the latest, no matter what. If the line reaches the "Brave" sign, it will close early. The next group of characters will not appear until 4:30.
My New Years loot! Calligraphy (supposedly it says "Good luck in the year of the snake" and my name, I haven't read Chinese in a long time), a zodiac caricature, lantern, and snake chain. Next year, I want red envelopes, but instead of money, they can put fast passes and arcade tokens in them. ;p
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!
