I've figured it out. I only seem to be happy when I'm planning a trip. Is everyone else that way? I think I should become a travel planner/agent so I can make money at it instead of lose. :) Anyway, it's a long way off and I don't even know if I can swing it with Anna's graduating from high school and starting college, plus her trip to D.C. coming up, but we are hoping for her to spend her 18th bi More...
I thought I was beyond tech problems! I've changed my profile pic and it shows on the place where you change it, but on my profile page it's the old one. I tried logging in and out, too. What am I doing wrong? 😥
I'm a little late on this, but I'm sending a thank you to an unknown cast member. 😊 I wish I would have gotten her name. Maybe she lurks here? Anyway, during our October trip we went to World of Color since we had passes from Carthay Circle. (Our first time at WOC.) When we got to the viewing area, I remembered why we had never gone. Standing! My daughter has several knee issues. I asked a CM w More...
**IN PARK RAK!!!!**
This is our first RAK. All you need to do is find us and;
A. Do your best Gangdam style moves and
B. Tell us Anna's favorite character
And you and *one* guest will win a sundae each at Ghiradelli. And not the Earthquake. Sorry. Please keep it around 8 dollars a piece. I'm a single mom. 😊 If you don't want a sundae, you can substitute two different items. Items in photo may More...
I asked this on the Halloween Party post that Mickey_CM put up, but I think it got lost. On Tuesday party nights, does anyone know how late DTD stays open? Specifically World of Disney and places like that? We are going to a Friday party but get into the parks on Tuesday. We'd like to do a little early shopping after DCA closes but wasn't sure the stores would still be open after 8 pm. Thanks!!!!
Looking at all your posts gets me so giddy!!! We are going soon to celebrate my (whisper) 45th birthday and experience Halloween at Disneyland for the first time!! My daughter is also treating me to birthday dinner at Carthay Circle. Woot!!!
Okay, I did my search and couldn't quite find the answer I was looking for. I know for the Halloween party we can enter DL a few hours before and we get wristbands. But we are already going to be in Disneyland as we are arriving a few days earlier. 😊So do we enjoy the park, leave for a specified amount of time, then come back at 3? (We aren't wearing our costumes all day. Feet would hurt. 😁) More...
Many thanks to secretagentangel Maggie who surprised us with an amazing RAK to get us excited for our upcoming trip!! Glow with the Show ears, Tinkerbell pom poms, Minnie hair accessories, pens, pencils, stationery...it was a big grab bag of fun!! Amazingly sweet MWer who is giving some great pre-moving advice, too!! One. More. Month!!!
Crazy question...I just read about Mickey SF Giants pin and thought, "Wow, that would be perfect!" A dear childhood friend of mine is going through treatment for inoperable brain cancer, and she is a huge Giants fan. She lives in Seattle, and I am in Colorado...I thought it would be a great way to let her know I'm thinking of her. Where would be a reputable place to buy one....remotely? Thanks!!!
So, silly but I'm having a slight panic. Tickets for the Halloween Party go on sale July 9th for passholders, July 16th for everyone else. I'm a passholder, but not activated til I get there in October. (I'm in Colorado.) I called Disneyland and they said I "might" be able to buy them on the 9th and get them at Will Call when I activate my pass. If not, I'll have to wait til the 16th. Since I can 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!
