Here's a sneak peek at what the upcoming Princess Merida dolls will look like. These are two of the ones for the Disney Store! :D As for the toddler doll, it is not considered part of the Animator's Collection. I simply can not wait for Brave to come out!!! ^.^
What do you think of going to the parks on rainy days if you might be getting sick. I absolutely LOVE rainy days @ Didney, but sadly enough feel a wee cold comin' on. I would hate to get even sicker, let alone risk getting anyone else sick. I do think it's rude to be at the parks when sick & spread it around, but I'm not coughing or sneezing.. just some body aches. Well, anywho what do you guys th More...
Hello Mousewait! I sure hope you're all having a splendid Sunday Funday; what do you guys have planned for this 'very blustery day'? I myself will be @ work until 8 before I rush over to the parks for some much needed "Disney Therapy" ^.^
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?
