A little fact I never knew before: the Briar Patch store is older than Splash Mountain and actually dates back to Walt's time. It used to be the Indian Trading Post. (Can I say Indian if I'm 1/4 Cherokee?) 
Good news for anyone who still wants one of those cute Halloween Mickey Ghost popcorn buckets! A CM in one of the popcorn stands told me they that they are expecting more on Oct 5. I'm hoping it's true! 
Had a supercalifragilistic Friday hanging at DL with SMK and Lil Sweet, Royanna and family, the Goldbergs, DMW and kids, and ONM, meeting JayJay, seeing Kalel, Sonja and Bulkseye, and CJ and Sassy Cass, and riding TOT with
AnnMick again! I wish I could have stayed longer but I had a wonderful
time while I was there! MWers are the best ever!! Even if I am now a rabid pin collector... More...
I've had a lot of out of town guests this summer and my waistline is paying the price! All that "fun food," eating out and lack of regular exercise has added 6 lbs! . Time to up the water intake, start doing the Chubb 33 circuit, and saying No to cupcakes! 
I have two pairs of the 'Big Cheese' MM ears that were the free gift at today's WOD sale available to the first two people to text me with their name and address. . I also still have about 5 of the 55th anniversary park maps if anyone stills needs some.
Good morning everyone! Had a great day yesterday with my Dad and Stepmom in DL. They rode Indy for the first time and we did the WOC dinner package at the Trattoria. Food was wonderful! This was my first time seeing WOC and I thought it was amazing! Thanks to everyone for all of their WOC tips, they really helped!
I am very grateful to all of our service men and women who make it their job to protect our freedom.  I want to dedicate my 4th of July this year to all of our MW family who, like Tone and Yeti just to name two, are such a huge part of what makes our country great! And to amazing people
like Dreamseeker and PrettyPixie who support them! Love you guys! 
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!
