Looking for advice on what day to go DLand this week. Will there be lighter crowds on Monday with only Deluxe and premier pass holder access to park, but being a holiday or Tuesday with no black outs for anyone?
Hi MouseWait land. First time back in a long time. Been away because of illness. Tough fight but outlook is good. With Thanksgiving this week it gives me a chance to reflect on what I'm "truely" greatful for. For me it's just being alive and getting to see my kids one more day. What are you thankful for?
Interesting video about Disneyland Cast Member Costumes. Copy and paste it into browser. Did not work direct from MW.
The Disney Cast Members never cease to amaze me! Special thanks to CM's Ed and Gordon at the Disney Railroad. Got to ride with them up on the engine for one full lap around the park. They were great and learned some great stuff too.
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!
