Disneyland is my happy place. I absolutely adore Sleeping Beauty Castle. I love the sights, the sounds and the smells of Disneyland. My favorite thing to do is walk down Main Street and inhale deeply. It makes me smile!

Good morning MouseWait family. We are planning to take my daughter to Disneyland next weekend to celebrate her 5th birthday. The dilemma is that my husband fell off a roof on Monday and injured his knees. The doctor thinks he may have a torn meniscus and has suggested 6 weeks of physical therapy and, if there's no improvement, surgery. He is able to move around with a limp and some pain. So, wha 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!
