My former student Anna Maria Perez de Tagle from Camp Rock and Hannah Montana is in Disneyland. She's super approachable so say hi if you see her! I got permission from her to post her Facebook picture. She's on the left. #celebrities
Our dinner from Ariel's Grotto. Approx $90 for two of us with AP discount, and that's with tip included. The crab chowder was good, and so was the lobster tail and tri tip, but the dessert was disappointing. Tasted like packaged grocery store products. Really missed the old dessert and appetizer tower. Service was good.
Club 33 question: A friend of a friend was able to make reservations at club 33 for us, but I'm a little bit confused on how it works. I read somewhere that it is $75. Is that for just getting in? Any insights would be appreciated. Thank you!
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!
