Having major DL withdrawals. Thank goodness for MW! The first tine I posted was a year ago when I was preparing for my annual DL trip during the Christmas and NYE break. The tips I got from fellow MW was like gold! This app is a must have (just like my fb app). Anyway, just wanted to say hi from NorCal.
I live in the Bay Area and I am totally missing DL right now. You guys who live in SoCal are so lucky! I would love to be able to just go there if I have a free weekend, or in my case a furlough day! 
@admin: a coworker just downloaded MW on the Droid (I'm sure because I couldn't stop talking about after I got back from vacay). Is it available on blackberry yet? I know so many ppl who are anxious to be part of the MW community!
Has anyone ever "RV'd" it to the DL? The Hubby and I were talking about trying that out on our next trip. We are driving from the Bay Area and we see so many on the road on our way there. Everyone looks ao comfortable in there and I think my kids may get a kick out of it. Hmmm...
@admin: do we get extra points if we recommend this site to a friend? So far I got my husband on it and I recommended this app to onenof my friends who is visiting the park this week. Love this app and community!
@admin: today was my last day at the park and I wanted to thank you and the Mousewait community for all the updates and comments. This app truly enhanced our DL and Dca experience. We were able to plan our day better by looking at the wait times, I was able to check off some Hidden Mickeys, check out what is on the parks menu as well as read/post on chats while waiting in line (when there was re More...
Is it true that once you are in the parks you should stay and not leave or else they won't let u in? I googled nye tips at DL and that us what some folks have said. However the past few days they had let people in...weather looks good! Last day of the year! Hope everyone has a good one!
My sister just called me from Space Mountain. Officially the wait is around 80 minutes, but she has been in line for 120. I just went from scared to go on Nye to terrified haha. Btw. My other friends are at the park. The guys in their group just made up a game where they were counting up the pairs of Uggs that they saw today. So far they are up to 35.
To answer open question, I totally miss the People Mover. I would have loved my kids to experience seeing the park with an arial point of view. I also loved it when the people mover visited certain rides.
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!
