Good evening MWers! Over the last few days, our traffic has skyrocketed with a lot of new users. If you're new to MW, Welcome to our MW Community! Please feel free to use this post to say hi and introduce yourselves!
For all you san diegans. Just got home from the Disney store outlet. They have a Disneyland clearance section. All the ornaments are 5.99, even the 3 pack. The Donald and Duffy bear are 3.99. Oh yeah, vinylmations are 1.99!
I didn't get anything good, but my boyfriend was at the Mickey and Friends parking structure and got this. Because of the angle he was at he said he couldn't get any pictures with Disneyland in the background.
I got these two pictures at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree. I just got lucky and was at the right place at the right time!!! Full size can be downloaded now. Top pic can be found at http://tinyurl.com/78j74op and bottom pic is available at http://tinyurl.com/84q3u2l. There are other character pics uploaded on my stream, feel free to access any of those you want as well.
This video is hilarious! It's a parody of all the annoying guests at Disneyland. Brings up all the pet peeves for all of us that go to the park a lot! I've experienced a lot of these things and really wonder how people think this stuff is ok haha. Watch this if you need a good laugh! http://tinyurl.com/73mxvwb
Disney Family Fun has a Mexican Hot Chocolate recipe. Does anyone know if Disney sells Mexican hot chocolate. I swore I saw it on a menu somewhere. In Walt Disney World a restaurant sells it as Chocolate con Churros.
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!
