Was not a fan of the new Grad Night with hordes of students mixed in with the regular crowed. Last night at CA there was plenty of line jumping, vulgar language, screaming and shouting in lines, and some not so appropriate behaviors. Not all were behaving this way but the large groups of 20-30 teens was way over the top. We left early.
I'm playing the piano at Innoventions and a Disney CM comes up with an elderly lady next to her, listening to me play. I finish and realize that the older lady is blind and deaf and she is feeling the vibrations on the piano, essentially "listening" to me play.

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?
