Ok, my 7 yr old daughter was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and spent a few days in the hospital with an 18 hr stint in ICU and her first question when she got home was "we are still going to Disneyland The first week of the year, right? I can go daddy and ride the rides right" ( this brought years to my eyes) my response "HELL YEAH WE ARE GOING"!!!! So she takes insulin 4 times a day and the More...
Well I just made kids very upset especially my 7 7/8 yr old daughter that her favorite ride Big Thunder Mountain will be closed on our next 5 visits. Poor kid started to cry and tells me " daddy I can't go to Disneyland and not ride the crazy train, that is Disneyland for me"!! Man my heart sank.
My son met Oscar and was excited when he found out that Oscar Knew Walt. Oscar then took my son and daughter around the cafe showing and talking about the pictures on the wall. They both thought that was awesome. Oscar was very nice and kept coming back to make sure everything was ok. It was awesome.
Last day before we make the trek down to Disneyland. Trailer is hooked up and fully stocked the truck is gassed and ready to go. Man I can't wait to turn in these emails into Annual Passes so we can enjoy unlimited enjoyment at Disneyland. 18 days of SoCal!!!! With the majority of the time going to Disneyland.
Woohoo 19 days until we leave for our 3 week trip to Disneyland!! We will be first time AP holders ( yup I bought before the hike) and I can't wait to turn that piece of paper in for that plastic little piece of gold!!!! The kiddies have no idea we have passes can't wait to surprise them.
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!
