Interesting, Disneyland.com has finally put up the calendar for Oct 31st and Big Thunder is NOT listed as being closed for refurb. If it really is opening on time, I'm going to be so happy.If it is going to be extended, then this is a pretty bad move by DIsney of not announcing it by now. I guess we will wait and see....https://disneyland.disney.go.com/calendar/daily/#/ More...
For the first time in 9 years, Pixar will not be releasing a movie in summer. The Good Dinosaur is being delayed until Nov 2015 and will move several other big movies. Will not be a real summer without a Pixar movie!
Silly questions, but how do you tag a user in a post? I thought you just had to add the @ symbol before their username, but it's not seeming to work for me. Is it in the mobile version only? Is it case sensitive?
Has anyone else heard rumors of Club 33 being expanded. I heard this today from a friend who was there last night for Tony Baxter's retirement party. Sounds like they are going to create a new entrance and not use the one near Blue Bayou anymore!
So I have a question for those who use guest assistance cards. My boyfriend has trouble on stairs so we went to city hall and asked for a card and told the cm there that we just want to avoid stairs (for example, the indy stairs are not the easiest). The card we got only said to sit us in the front row of a vehicle or show and wasn't helpful at all (we couldn't use it on Midway Mania to avoid th More...
FYI, There was just a 5.1 earthquake in SoCal, so there may be ride closures. It wasn't strong (epicenter was south of Palm Springs, about 90 miles from DL) but enough that it was felt and may close rides.
Omg, I'm so excited. Saw a few pictures of the new Blue Sky Cellar exhibit on the Fantasy Faire and saw a great bit of info on a new food card that is going to be there. The new Maurice’s Twisted Treats outdoor vending cart which will serve twisted bread sticks and Dole Whip drinks!!!!!
So excited about that and can't wait to have a shorter line for a Dole Whip.
So how do you feel about going on an attraction with people who clearly know it well and start either telling jokes/lines BEFORE they happen on the attraction?
Last night I had a horrible JC experience because there was a guy on board who was LOUDLY telling all the skipper jokes before the skipper said it and laughing so loudly. And if the JC didn't tell the joke he wanted (since they have man 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!
