I have always been a Disney fan and now I live close enough to live the dream to visit Disneyland as often as I can along with my husband and 6 kids. I really like the fact that I can make Disneyland a part of my kids childhood. This wasn\\\'t an opti
Well we our finally here and spent a few hours at the park last night. It is a bit overwhelming for first time visitors. We didn't know where to start first. We were just walking around and looking trying to figure out where to go first. Pirates of the carribean was our first ride and Toy story our second. We hadn't hopped to dc yet. Breakfast with Minnie this morn and grabbing fp for star tours. More...
I went to the dollar store today and found tons of Disney stuff for my three little guys. I wanted activities they could do in the car. Their favorites are cars, Tinkerbell, and the Princesses. I mixed in a little Goofy, Mickey, Pooh, and Toy Story items. They had stamp sets, water colors pictures, fiber boards with markers, and tic tac toe. Some other things I know I'm forgetting.

I will be in the parks July 19-24. This is my first trip to Disneyland. I was disappointed to find that the Matterhorn will be closed for refurb. It looks really fun and I was looking forward to riding it.
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!
