I was born and raised on Disney. I was captivated by the magic of Disney as long as I can remember. I've worked for Disney, been an annual passholder for years, and look forward to working for Disney again when I can find an open position as a nurse in t
I bought myself and XBox and the Kinect just to specifically play the Disneyland Adventures game and I've been playing it non-stop! I just used my magic wand on Minnie's mailbox, and in response to the mailbox wigging out, Minnie says, "Goodness! Look at the mailbox!" I literally laughed out loud. I don't know why I thought that was funny, but it cracked me up!
Barely made it to Midway before closing the line! Got to see one of my favorite mousewaiters! Thanks SuuzinOC! Saw SueBayou and Vinylchaser during my mad rush to Mania! Great to see you guys! I am kicking myself for not remembering to get a pic with you guys too! Next time is a must!
Name some of the really annoying behaviors guests do while at the park. What I find annoying is when a person or entire family just stop dead in their tracks in a high traffic area. Or what about when they walk as a group, instead of walking in a single file line in high traffic areas, they spread themselves across an entire walkway. Some people are oblivious to the fact that there are others in t More...
Okay, I'm not one to complain ever, but I need to vent a bit of sadness I felt about the happenings of Leap Day. I was so excited to do my in park StarWars RAK's! I had two to do over the course of the 24hrs, but the server was so bogged down that not many people even saw my posts.

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?
