It's always such a treat to be able to spend a few days in the parks for Christmas. Headed home now, but wanted to share this picture with all of you of Walt and Mickey as a reminder of what Disneyland truly is all about. Happy Holidays everyone!
#MWstory Around 2 years ago, I joined Mousewait officially and it was probably the best decision I ever made. I guess my story really starts when I was a kid and my dad and I would go to Disneyland every summer, just the two of us. They were the best times of my growing up considering my at home life made it hard to be a kid. Disney was always an escape.
Fast forward to 2011, when a Disney trip More...
I don't come on here as often anymore, but I'd like to take the time to thank MW, Admin, the members, and everyone who makes this app what it is. On this day, 2 years ago I joined the lounge and I tell you I have been blessed beyond belief with the friendships that have developed because of this app. I love seeing and meeting people at so many different walks of life who share one common love for More...
Hey Mousewait! Gosh it's been so long since I have been on, I almost feel guilty! Well, I just wanted to extend my love to all of you! I really wish I could be there to see all of your lovely smiles this weekend, but unfortunately my obligations at home are keeping me away for a few more weeks. To all you newbies I really hope you are enjoying your time in this wonderful app! These crazy cats are More...
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!
