Oh. My. Goodness. I am going to Disneyland Paris the beginning of next year. I am so dang excited!!! Has anyone had the pleasure of going and if so, any tips and advise? I have never been out of the country before.
Why yes, that is a blimp over Cars Land. We were so so lucky to enjoy the media event yesterday. For those inside, have a blast and try to take the time to enjoy everything you see. Tere is so much detail!
Had such an amazing time at DCA today. Everything is beyond amazing. I didn't want to leave. Buena Vista street, entertainment, attractions, food....EVERYTHING makes this a true Disney park and sets the bar for the future.
Question to those MWer's that won tickets to the cars land preview through the Coca Cola/Krogger contest. Has anyone rcvd an email verifying that they won and how the tickets will be sent? I know a few people won so just comparing notes. Thanks!
Just won 4 tickets to the Cars Land sneak preview event on June 14th!!! Just read that the park will be closed to the public that day and will be open for media/winners only!!! I am SO excited. Still can't believe it and had to share. Play here for a chance to win: https://cocacola.promo.eprize.com/familyfun/ralphs
Just upgraded to a premium pass. My deluxe pass was getting old and I wanted to go this weekend. Geared up and ready to go for a jam packed summer of fun at Disneyland an the new DCA!!! I'm going to be brave and finally say hi to some MWer's. Hope to see some of you there :)
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!
