I'm a 5th grade teacher with a soft spot for all things Disney, especially Mickey and Stitch. My daughter (flukefan) and I love escaping to the parks often. I love Indy,
Mickey ice cream bars, and getting teary-eyed at the park that Walt built.
What is it with older brothers teasing about the Mickey Mouse Club? My youngest big brother (I'm the only girl and the baby) used to get home from school about 20 minutes before me. I'd walk through the door to find him watching MMC - the black and white original version as reruns in the '70's -- and he would tease me with, "I got to watch from the beginning. Too bad your bus comes later t More...
I'm on the lookout for a 20" plush Elsa for the princess in my life. She bought Anna after Christmas with Disney Store gift cards, and she's been patiently waiting for new stock ever since. She said, "They're supposed to be together. They're sisters." Oh, sweet six year old. Go easy on my heartstrings, love. Thanks, Kevin!
You know, I peeked through your profile and your previous posts. You really don't need to try this hard to get attention. Not many people respond what you write. Perhaps that should tell something? As Genie said, "Beeee yourself!"
Our friends from San Diego use it at least once a month for their dog. They love it. Owners are responsible for walking their dogs and feeding, too. Our friends bring a small mat for comfort and their dog's favorite chew toy to keep her company while they play at the parks. You need proof of current vaccinations, including rabies. It's very convenient.
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!
