This summer on our annual DL trip we met Jacob Brooks, he's the character cloth and hair lead for Pixar Studios, CA. We've been keeping in touch and I was able to order these shirts from him, their going to make awesome Christmas gifts for my kids! 😊
Well I was very exited about being a part of MW for two years now, however it seems every time I post on here they are being ignored- I'm not sure if I'm doing this wrong or what😔 I know I'm not a frequent park visitor, but with six kids we can only afford to take one child a year for a week. Living in Calgary, Canada it's very difficult to come for visits. I 💜having this app and DL in my po 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!
