# Happy two year #MouseWait Anniversary to me. February 20, 2011 was a great day for me. I found this wonderful app because of my love for Disneyland. Soon I was in the Lounge lurking and getting used to how we roll, the sarcasm the friendly joking, identifying trolls and learning about RAKs. It took almost a year to meet my first MW'rs even though I'd been posting and commenting on a regular basi More...

Desperately need a little assistance from my fellow MW friends I am upgrading my phone, I have Sprint, and I have narrowed my choices to the following two phones. iPhone 4s and the Galaxy S III for money reasons, the iPhone 5 is a remote possibility. Currently have an android and wife has an iPhone and I like it. My concern is which will be better in the parks. Thanks so much.
# It has arrived. Thank you Pikarich. My Minnie decamise cup is here and taking it's place next to Donald and my other treasured Disney memoriabilia. I still need the Mickey demitasse cup to the collection. Thanks again Pikarich and all the well wishers.
So I am watching the Military channel and the subject is France Falls showing the Maginot Line which was an underground fortress that stretched for hundreds of miles. It had dozens of hospitals as well as living quarters and dining halls for the troops. This is the artworks in one of them. This was filmed in 1939
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!
