I used to be a CM, from 1999 to 2000! At Coke Corner! I'm an Artist, Singer and performer. I've loved Disney since I was 5 and now I have a daughter who will soon be 5 she loves Disney too!!! We are at Disneyland every month and love our annual passes!
Our AP's expire on Aug 5th, but are pretty much blocked out until then, I think my last pass payment is early July. I'm going to renew and get the premium passes, will Disneyland let me renew early and start our premium passes right after my last payment? Does anyone know? Thanks! ;)
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!
