For 26 yrs I visited Disney at least once a year. In Feb 2009, my BF and I bought APs and have been going at least once a month since! In Jan 2011 I became obsessed with Vinylmations and MW and started going to the Parks more like twice a week!
At the Fantasy Faire preview, a CM told us that everything that is reimagined at Disneyland, has some sort of tribute to what used to be there. See the CPG above the walk-through to Frontierland? That's the tribute to Carnation Plaza Gardens! I love the details and nostalgic qualities of Disneyland!
I haven't seen this posted yet.. At the entrance of Big Thunder they have this really cool poster all about Walt and his horses! It has some really cool trivia and the pics of Walt aren't harsh on the eyes either 😍 Go check it out!

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!
