Myself, my beautiful wife, and my 8 year old daughter are Disney lovers at heart. I work for Hawaiian airlines and we have AP so we try to make it out here as often as possible! Love living in Hawaii but I wish the Mouse was closer!
It's exciting. The biggest irony of all....is that we live in Hawaii! We definitely make sure we get our money's worth though! There's advantages to working for an airline and loving Disney... ALL your money goes to the mouse lol
Thanks for the advice about watching the discount amount!
Not sure if it means anything or not but TouringPlans lists Space Mountain and Soarin' as reopening tomorrow. Again, not sure how accurate that is but that's what they have listed on their site.
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!
