I just read a nice article in the Contra Costa Times, about the opening of Carsland. In the article, the reporter, Tony Hicks, had a paragraph noting the wait times as posted on the app Mouse Wait. It was a nice little bit of promotion for the app.
I'm surprised that there hasn't been a mention of a meet up for tomorrow, what with all the non stop Carsland talk. Even if you're saying to yourself, "Nah, it's gonna be a madhouse, I'll go another day." If you live relatively close to the park I'm sure you'll find yourself down there at some point during the day, because you just couldn't resist that urge to go on the first day that it finally More...

When the clock strikes 12
and Cinderella starts to quake.
Mousewaiters come out for a swinging wake.
Happy haunts materialize,
and begin to vocalize.
The Midnight Hour comes out to socialize.
Now don't close your eyes and don't try to hide,
Or a silly IAD may sit by your side.
Shrouded in a daft disguise,

“To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world."
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!
