I'm looking forward to a surprise trip I'm planning for my fiance in December for the weekend so we can experience Disneyland decorated for Christmas. he thinks were going somewhere else and he won't know until he prints the boarding pass at the airport. :) also we will have our honeymoon there Feb 1 More...
I'm going into the park tonight for the ariels grotto world of color dining package.
Do you guys know how packed the preferred viewing section usually is? Our reservations are at 6:20 and then we will go right over to the viewing section to save our spots.. is there a lot of people usually in that area?
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!
