Hey MW'ers! We got tix to Mickey's Halloween party, but don't know how it works. Does the park close down early and then reopen? We're flying down in the morning, and only staying for 2 days, so I'm trying to plan the visit. Any help is appreciated!
Well MouseWait friends, it's been an amazing week at the DLR! To be honest, I got the MW app to track wait times and never thought I'd be posting to the Lounge. That's actually been a super fun part of the Disney experience this week! I can't wait to live vicariously through everyone in the Lounge until I'm able to post from Disney again myself.
See ya real soon!
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!
