My name is Becky and I eat, sleep, & breath all things Disney. I love it so much that I became a CM. I'm usually at World of Color but can also be found at Midway Mania, the Challenge Trail, and elecTRONica. If you see me say hi! I love to meet fellow MW
The first time I ever saw "The Lion King" was in theaters (my first ever movie in theaters!) when I was 6 years old. I remember seeing it with my mom and being so scared during the stampede that I hid my head in my seat and wouldn't turn around until I heard the happy song "Hakuna Matata." Yesterday I got to see "The Lion King" again, but this time in 3D. Even 16 years later I find myself still sc More...
In the parks today? Want to see World of Color? Don't have a fastpass? NO PROBLEM!!! Stop by Grr & have ME get you yours. I'll be working the fp stations all night....or until we're out. Come say hi!! :)
Aww man the El Capitan isn't showing the new Winnie the Pooh movie! :( I was looking forward to seeing it there and after enjoying a sundae at the Disney soda fountain next door. Oh well, at least they're going to show The Lion King on the big screen!!!!
Are there any MWers in DCA tonight? I'm working WOC (by the churro cart near the challenge trail) but I feel like I never see anyone while I'm here :( If you pass me or see me yell out MW and you'll make my night!!! :)
Has anyone eaten at the Trattoria winery or Ariel's Grotto for the World of Color preferred dinning? I want to buy one for my parents as an anniversary present since they've never seen the show but I don't know which place is better. Any suggestions??
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!
