Confused...Ok so I remember that Splash Mountain was down for a few months earlier this year for renovations. I went on the ride yesterday for the first time since it reopened and everything looked exactly the same to me...am I missing something??? What exactly was added/changed on the ride if anyone knows??
Re-newed my annual pass yesterday. I hadnt been back since April! I am a little bummed the passports no longer have a picture on the card itself tho :( but anyway, the parks look great! Especially Ca Adventure. Loved The Little Mermaid ride
Havent been on here in a while and just checked Mouse times for Dland. Is Splash Mountain still under construction? Does anyone know when it will open back up again? Last time I checked, they said end of May..guess not?
Probably one of the coolest models/replicas I've seen. This was taken in The Disney Gallery on Main Street USA. Speaking of Splash Mtn, does anyone know what exactly is being done to it at the moment? It's been closed for the last few weeks for remodeling...
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!
