Did everyone hear that they are adding a 10K to the Disneyland race weekend in August/September? If you do both the 10K and the 1/2 marathon then you get a "Dumbo Challenge" medal! Woohoo!! I'm so excited for this!
✨WINNERS!! Otilegna and DisLUVney please DM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address. ✨RAK!! In honor of my recent Wine & Dine 1/2 marathon trip to WDW, I'm RAKing off 2 sets of WDW maps. The winner will be chosen Sunday, November 18th at 1 pm Disneyland time. All you have to do is tell me your favorite attraction/show/restaurant in WDW. Good luck! ✨
For all you runDisney fans- if you are looking to get your Coast-to-Coast medal in 2013, I highly recommend the Wine & Dine 1/2 Marathon at WDW! I got to run through 3 parks ( Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, & Epcot), but the best parts in my opinion were running by some of the floats from the Main Street Electrical Parade and running through the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!!

If anyone has a Facebook account, there is an awesome group called "Team #runDisney". It's a small group of people who love doing runDisney races. They plan meetups and have some great tips. My favorite thing is seeing all the pics and medals from the races I cannot do :)
Just wanted to share some pics from this past weekend. It had been almost 2 years since I was last at the Parks and I was blown away with all the AMAZING changes!! I had a great time entering wait times and looking for all the little details that MWers point out in the Lounge. Pics - Jack Sparrow, Radiator Springs at night, Ursula, DL 1/2 marathon memories, lunch at Big Thunder Ranch, and the famo More...
For all you Kindle owners, there's a book called "Your Twitter Diet" that can be downloaded on Amazon for free today. I haven't read it yet, but it got great reviews on Amazon and it's free. Might be worth checking out. 📖
June of 1990- Disneyland was celebrating its 35th Anniversary (unfortunately my dad cut off most of the sign in this pic)! I'm not exactly sure where in the Park this picture was taken though. I was 4 and my brother (kid on the left) was 2. He is currently a CM at WDW 😊
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!
