The name is Grecia :) I'm 23 years young and I'm head over heals for Disney. I'm Pocahontas on the outside and Peter Pan on the Inside. I live in NorCal (San Francisco) but I'm an Annual Pass holder and try to go as much as possible.
Disney is Love
Someone asked me this question when I first met them and this is what I said. Disneyland is like a home that you've grown up in. It's a place I've been going to since I was a baby and there's not only magic in the park itself but also in being able to point out certain locations and tell a personal story of what happened there. Like .., oh here's where my sister pushed me when I was 7 and skinned 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!
