Throwback Thursday: Found a few Mulan parade pics from 1998, enjoy! P.S. Since the promotion this year is Limited Time Magic, I'm hoping there might be a slight chance that Shang could come out with Mulan for the Chinese New Year.

Random Thoughts while watching Pinocchio for the first time in a decade - does anyone remember the name of the film strip series staring Jiminy Cricket? I watched them in elementary school in the 70's. The only thing I remember is the parts of the theme song that Jiminy sings "I play safe for you and me cause I'm no fool" - anyone remember the song "belly of a whale"? from the 80's?

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!
