On our way home from another amazing trip to DLR!! I have to say if it weren't for MW there are so many things I would have never known about or even tried. For example, went to the Cove Bar & had the yummy Lobster Nachos & Tri-tip Sliders...so so so yummy!! Thank you MW!!
Happy Friday! Does anyone here collect the Disney Collector Packs? I'm trying to finish Series 7 but I have some duplicates. Does anyone have any duplicates from this series they would like to trade? I have the Easter Bunny Minnie & Holiday Alice. Thanks!!
Hi...I'm new to MW and I am love looking at everyone's posts/pictures! We are heading to DL on Sunday and want to take the kiddos to a character breakfast. We've done GK several times & wanted to try one of the other ones. Is there one that you recommend? Thanks!!
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!
