Finally! Get to be in the parks this afternoon! Flying down in a little bit! So need a Disneyland vacation! Works been tough especially after I put in for this one!! Almost got fired for taking this time off! Definitely got reprimanded! Had no idea that going to Disney every few months was a faux pas with my coworkers.
Not live but I will say I found the perfect spot to see him up close and personal! My son Luc is a huge Star Wars fan, well not just Star Wars but Disney as well. Except that when we meet any characters at all in DL he hides. So we thought we would watch the Jedi training from the side . So during the show Vader comes and stands literally right over us, Luc freaks out and just points his gun at Va More...
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!
