Random Trader Sam's question... I got a light-up ice cube in my drink, was I suppose to keep it?? I did because the service was terrible and sometimes I'm a bad person, but, ya know... For next time? :-)
☀☀Good morning MW friends! I could use some of your prayers and pixie dust this morning! Last night was my last day at my job, and this morning I'm starting a new one! I'm a little nervous, my last job I wasn't a huge fan of, but the people were my family! It's always scary to jump into something new! Hope you all have a great day!
My new wallet came in the mail today - totally stoked! If anyone is thinking of ordering it, do it! It's good quality and very lovely! My only complaint is that I have a lot of cards (I'm a chick, it kind of comes with the territory! 😝) and it's a little too stiff yet to close with them all inside! Hopefully it will give a little with time. :-)
Got this off of Twitter from Stephanie J. Block. She's a Broadway actress who apparently played Belle at some point in Disneyland. It made me 😂 so I thought i'd share: "Just remembering when I played Belle at Disneyland years and years ago... I'd be so tan during the summer, they called me Taco Belle."
Well, MW family, the time has come. For the last 5 days I've been home sick in bed with a brutal sinus infection, and while the infection rages on, it's back to work anyway! But I wanted to say ✨✨Thank You✨✨ to everyone here who kept me entertained when the outside world seemed so far away! Grand prize must go to the guy who reported the poop-n-run in NOS. That was quite a load you gave us More...
To all fellow MWers who don't live anywhere near the parks: does being on MouseWait make the wait until your next trip a little more bearable? Or does seeing all the pics and hearing all the stories make the wait more difficult for you? I can't decide which it is for me, so I figured I'd ask the masses. :-)
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!
