Am short. I love the petting zoo but am always annoyed it closes early. I like the giant corn dogs and watching children beg their parents for churros. The Matterhorn still scares me and I always get crazy dizzy on the teacups.
I'm taking a break and people watching the dancefloor in Tomorrowland. This is my first Disneyland Halloween Party, I'm having SUCH a blast. I love love love it. I might have to brave Ghost Galaxy by myself. Anyone else here?
I love love LOVE the Halloween Carnival at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree!!! I colored a spooky mask, I spun the wheel for a fortune AND I loved the characters in their costumes. Especially Goofy. I need to go back and check out who's in the tent.
There was also a performance from Bill Hill and the Hillbillies playing Halloween themed music. Bill also encouraged us to scream when the train pass More...
Sometimes I act like a total creeper and lean in too close to someone with one of these. The bubbleguns are great for entertaining the kidlets in line. I always feel like the Pied Piper when I bring one. Credit: Tumblr
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!
