With the passing of older brother Robert B Sherman today, let's give thanks and share our memories past and present about what their music...it's amazing to me that no matter what Disney theme park or what country you live in you probably know by heart the Lyrics to at least one or two of their songs......it's really hard for me to imagine Disneyland without hearing It's a Small World, or the tiki More...
Standing on a Soap Box…….This morning I finally got annoyed with all the Face Character bashing that has been going on lately and felt that it was time to say something.. I know that sometimes it’s fun to laugh at others for having stuff on their teeth or making a funny face but some of the things that have been said lately have been flat out hurtful t those in the costumes. People forget th More...
Tonight while on the parade route one of my leads posted a question to those of us working. It really made me think about the park and its value to others. "If Disneyland were to have a close-of-business looting, what one thing would you take?" Keep in mind it could be ANYTHING in the park!
If anyone has ever wondered about going on a solo trip, do it :) I had a lot of fun taking my sweet time getting the perfect photos and just enjoying everything. You really begin to notice the intricate details all around the park Im looking forward to my next solo trip :)

I apologize in advance for the potential long-windedness of what I'm about to post, but bear with me; I rarely write a novel here and I'll do my best to keep it short. I read several reviews of MW and have seen multiple people mention the "cliques" in the lounge. I want to start by saying that just like in real life, there will always be cliques if you get a bunch of people in one area. We natural 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!
