Got caught up in the Disney magic last year (had been to the parks before but wasn't obsessed like now)! I got an AP and try to find any reason to travel from Central Cali to the DLR. I've also been studying up on my Disney history. I love to find out a
He is pretty reserved and shy. So when he's at a new place he sticks by me or his mom. Add to that he gets freaked out fairly easy (he wouldn't do "It's A Small World" because he got frightened with the clock). Even with the mild rides it's a constant battle. He doesn't even want to take pictures with the characters, well except for Mickey. So far the only thing he's liked so far was Mr. Toad's Wi More...
Fresno/Clovis represent! I just renewed my premium AP and will be heading down to the Parks on the 29th! My monkeys can't wait... There should be a central Cali meetup at the Parks while everyone's there!
I'm pulling my 2nd grader and kindergarten kiddos out on leap day through the week to go to the parks. The way I see it, they would have had to go an extra day! I can't explain the other two days except for chalking it up to a sociology Lesson! ;-)
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!
