I love Disneland! So many fun memories from summer vacations with my family and cousins! I am a huge hockey fan. I believe that the only other place on earth that is as magical as Disneyland was Maple Leaf Gardens.

Thank you so much for the awesome post and loved the video. This was always my favorite ride as a kid and one of my favorite parts was the pirates chasing the ladies. I don't know why I thought this was funny as a kid especially the lady chasing the pirate. I guess kids don't care whether it's PC or not they just know it's fun. But I think the addition of Jack Sparrow helps new fans relate the rid 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!
