Which would you pick? Upper level theme park view at Paradise Pier or Standard View room at the Grand CA. Additional perks at PP include use of pools at the Grand and DL Hotel since the PP Pool is under construction. Yes, I know I wrote PP pool.
Discovered this morning that we are blocked out on the first day of our trip in Feb and the PP hotel can't slide the res over by a day. Wondering what might a good option on our black out day? We could buy tix but I am thinking this might be an opportunity to show my 8 and 10 yr old something else cool around LA. Suggestions?
I need a break from reality so I went on Priceline this morning and "stuck it to the man. Got the Crowne plaza for 45 a night tonight an tomorrow. As soon as school is out I am throwing the 10 yr old in the truck and we are driving down from the bay area. Should be some good father son bonding time
So it appears DL and DCA have instituted new policies regarding guests with disabilities. A number of rides in DL and most in DCA no longer allow immediate boarding for guest with disabilities. If the queue is accessible you can stay in your chair or ecv and go through the line. If you can't do the line then they give you a pass that allows you to return at what the current wait time states.(essen 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!
