I have the great honor of being chosen as a member of the Cast Choir for Candlelight this year. They had over 320 CMs audition and less than half were chosen. It will be December 7th and 8th, with two performances each night. It will take place on Main Street again this year. I'll try and keep everyone posted when I get more information. :) #Candlelight
So far my best moment while working for the mouse: I was standing at the gates trying to get my tablet to cooperate, and I was getting extremely frustrated. I wanted to just break down and cry (it started off as a REALLY bad day). All of the sudden, a little girl, no more than 2 years old, tugs on my pants and holds up her pink princess Disney autograph book at me, trying to ask if I could sign it 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!
