Going through major Disney Withdrawals... Our Passports expired June 9.... Last time we were in DL was April for spring break... Annual Passport Prices just went up again and my work may go on strike! We voted today but if we strike no Disney for me for even longer 😥 Keep posting MWers I'll live thru all your pictures and posts 😉
Good morning MWers. Just wondering when everyone's spring break vacations are? Planning a trip with my parents and my niece during her spring break. Nor Cal - Bay Area April 1-7. Wanna feel for how the crowds will be. Post locations and dates. Thanks
Any other MWers who ran or will run the Disneyland Half Marathon 2013, sign up for any other races during the year? Disney runs or non-Disney runs? In 2012, I did the DL Half Marathon and the NorCal Tough Mudder. For 2013, signed up for Tough Mudder Tahoe, planning to sign up for DL Half Marathon and looking into the Mermaid Series Sirena 18. Any good training tips I would love to hear from my f More...
Just made lunch reservations for Carthay Circle Restaurant for my son's birthday. I also have a back up reservation dinner for Storytellers Cafe. We've only eaten at Storytellers Cafe (character breakfast and dinner). Anyone eaten at the new Carthay Circle Restaurant? Suggestions, advice, must have, must not?
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!
