I\'m from Northern California. I love Disneyland. I\'m going to school currently for Social Science, and maybe languages, then I\'ll pursue my love of acting. And when I was 5 I was gonna marry Max, Goofy\'s son.
I have an attraction admittance pass from being walked off of Splash. I'm by myself so it feels useless to use it and I can't figure out what ride to even use it on. I'm in Disney California currently... Any body interested?? With 40 minutes left, I hope someone wants it. It can't be used for Radiator Springs or World of Color. Right now I'm sitting by the Gormet Coffee stand and the pin cart, More...
Missing Disneyland so much I can hardly stand it!! I'm working on a way to drive down so I can go for a day. That's ten hours both ways to spend one day. Sounds crazy, but I think it just shows my desperation!!
My mom got this at the flea market for me!!! It has a holographic image thing, saying "I like Disneyland" from another angle. On the back it says from the Art Corner... The lady got it from her first visit, maybe in the 60's? I was SO excited!! Coolest pin ever! Had to share!!! :) My mom also got a shot glass announcing the opening of Indiana Jones... I wanted to share a picture, but she t More...
So I'm curious... I'm getting myself back down to the park next week, and I would really like to do a RAK..... But how do you pick what to do?? It'll be my first, and I feel like whatever I choose will be lame... And I would very much like it to not be lame. :)
So even though I live 9-12 hours away (depending on traffic, stops, etc), I got myself an annual pass on my last visit! :) Even though chances are a lot of my visits will be solo, I can't wait until I can get down there again!!! I thought I'd share my excitement with you! Yay! :D
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!
