Just another reason why I love Disneyland so much...... As an example a few years back while at Six Flags Magic Mountain I had an allergic reaction and went to first aid. They refused to do anything unless they called the paramedics to take me to the hospital! Yesterday at Disneyland my daughter Alexis was being very quiet. After taking her to first aid, they took her temperature it was 102.7. The More...
Ok my MW family! This is your friendly reminder. "Once Upon A Time" airs this Sunday night! For those of you heading to DL this weekend DON'T FORGET TO SET YOUR DVR! I saw the pilot back in July. It is AWESOME! And it is done by the guys that brought us Lost!

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!
