Seriously was a sight to be seen early this morning. I love all the surprises and fun Run Disney puts into these events. 5k last year 10k this year, half....lol someday. I'm still recovering from today.
Thinking of going on the 4th. I only have a deluxe pass so I will need a blackout day pass. How do you get those and what time do you think I need to get there by? I know it's busy, is it like New Year's Eve busy? Thx all.
World of color picnic question...
How is the seating area determined? Do you get it when you pick up the food or how does it work? Thinking of doing it for my birthday which is also Sunday march 17th. The first show. Thoughts?
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!
