Our very own MWer, JenAnneWho, rang bells in tonight's performance!! She was in the middle of the stage and on the far left (looking at the pics) of the group of 4!! She did an awesome job and it was fun to watch someone we knew!!!
I'm straining to think of Disney mothers represented in the park. So far I've got Brer Rabbit's mother in Splash, Bambi's mother in the Animation building during April Showers, and Sleeping Beauty's fairy godmothers (if they count). Is that all? Help!
#News- Exciting news here! Starting May 3-June 18, those good 'ol Country Bears are coming back to the park. They will be accompanied by Billy Hill and the Hillbillies in the Frontierland Festival Arena. More details will be announced as we get closer to May.

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!
