Well hello everybody,
I have been gone for about a year now just lots of stuff going on with everything. But I wanted to get back into the swing of things. We are planning our next trip for November 8, 2014 for our daughters 5th birthday. I wanted to come back this year but just couldn't afford it. I am looking forward to seeing all the great pictures that everybody is sharing.
paging moomooluvr...We received you RAK today. Cortnee has been wanting to carry the Cars snackbag everywhere around with her. I am going to put snacks in it when we go camping this weekend. Ty again so much
Countdown is back up...274 days till we leave. It's going to be a special trip for our little Princess. We are leaving her older brother home because of school and this trip is going to be all about her. We've only been home from our last trip for about 6 weeks...We are already planning where to eat and what to do. So much fun to see everything through a 2 year old's eyes...
Ok guys I have a question. I want to take my 2 year old on Pirates and Haunted Mansion when we go to DL next month. Do you guys think it is to much for a 2 year old with the dark and all. She's not afraid of dark at all but I don't want to traumatize her.
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!
