So I'm going to start at UCSB in September and was already planning to get an annual pass, then my mom asked if I wanted to go down to Disneyland a few days before move in so I can buy the pass. Then we started planning, and we were wondering what the discount was at the hotels. We looked all over the website but couldn't find anything specific. If anyone could help us out that would be awesome :) More...
I don't know if this has already been posted but on the one more Disney day (Feb. 29) there's going to be a Midnight snack at Thunder Valley Ranch! There's going to be treats and entertainment! Here's the link! http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/02/have-a-midnight-snack-with-the-disney-parks-blog-at-disneyland-park-during-one-more-disney-day/
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!
