Had an amazing day at CarsLand with the run in with John Lassater (sorry if mispelled) but it all came to a crashing halt when trying to get through a crowd with manners only to be called a jerk and a bast*** after a lady's hand brushed against mine. Really? Your hand brushed mine and even then I said excuse me.
Tonights story of the Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize is a MouseWait post without the drama. We invite you if you dare to post away. Because in tonights postings you don't have any drama.
What ever happened to being here for Disney? Yes, I'm rarely on this amazing app but, is drama really needed? I get people can be frustrating but almost every other post/comment/reply is an attact on someone who is causing drama...seriously? Yes, I'm acknowledging the drama now but, from someone who sits back and just scrolls its tiresome! Just leave things be, people are who they are, no use tryi More...
To my knowledge, Disneyland is the only place where you can be a part of royalty, get launched into space, slide down the slopes of the Matterhorn, explore the Frontier, discover the supernatural, be a pirate, and cross the street to experience everything all parts of California has to offer. Disney and Disneyland is my life.
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!
