Was fiddlin' around while on a boring concall and found this complete list of Disney movies. It was interesting to see which ones I have yet to see, as well as those I had either forgotten or didn't know that they were Disney films. http://tinyurl.com/7h2vqcd
So, we have this very strange ritual in our house. Inevitably, we come home with a handful of napkins from the park every time we go. They all get used right away except one. It exists for a very long time. It is never spoke of. Then the other day (last DL visit was Oct 1, mind you) my husband says "how long do you think we can keep that napkin before someone uses it?". I shrugged and he said More...
What song or segment do you think they should have included in World Of Color? Personally, I think they should have included That's How You Know or Step In Time. Those would have wonderful to see done in water and lights!
Quiet night tonight at Disneyland. Surprised that the rain scared everyone away since it was a Saturday and a holiday weekend. As I walked out, Splash was a walk on, HMH was a walk on, Indy was a walk on and there was a small crowd for Fantasmic. That's my update...
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!
