I thought I posted this already but now I can't see it. Yesterday was the first time I had been in here. I'd always seen pictures of Breast's Library but never this area. I loved the detail! Glad it was open.
Does anyone know anything about a rumored closure of Radiator Springs Racers for a refurb this Fall? We haven't been on it yet and are really excited to ride on our next trip. I know there isn't an official announcement from Disney but we would love to get an idea if this might be true as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly. Thanks!
Do they do a character picture in Storytellers Cafe like they do at Goofy's Kitchen? We always get our family picture done at Goofy's Kitchen but we were planning to try a different character breakfast this trip. We still want our family picture taken before breakfast. Anyone know? Thanks!
I've seen pictures but can anyone tell me how many adults you can feed with the Family Size pizzas at Naples in DTD? I know they are big but we will have a large group and I am trying to budget. Thanks!
I created a calendar with all the September attraction and eatery closures. DM me with your email address if you would like a copy. I am a visual person and needed it all lined out in one place. **Indy closure is now on the official Disneyland list.

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?
