Good morning MW. Just saw on the webcam the top of the tree peeking out on Main Street. Sure wish I could be at DL this holiday season, but it's just not going to work out. For all of you lucky enough to go, have a wonderful time, and everybody have a magical day.
Just uploaded one of our photopass cards from our WDW vacation only to discover it must have belonged to someone else. It's not my kid. No telling who has opened up their photopass to find my kids. So disappointed!
I know I just got back from WDW on Saturday, but I'm missing my DLR. It's been 5 months since I've been there, and since WDW wasn't cheap, it will be a long while til I see it again. OK. It's off my chest now...
We just got back yesterday from our 7-day WDW vacation. It was wonderful and magical, but DLR still feels more magical to me. I'd go to WDW again, but I feel like we got the better end of the deal with DLR.
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!
