🎉Today is my 2 year MW anniversary! 🎉 I will make this short and sweet. I may not post as much anymore, but the lounge holds a special place in my heart. It is here where I met life long friends, had many shenanigans and got to witness first hand the awesomeness that is this community! Thank you admin for making it possible. 😁👍
#RAK I'm raking away a Men's size L WDW polo shirt. (Never used, tag still on) To enter just tell me who its for and something nice about them. You may add for other MWers. I will chose a winner Sunday night. 😁👕👍
🎶A dream is a wish your heart makes!🎶 I had a quiet birthday celebration planned spending time at DL with friends that turned into a Magical visit to the Dream suite to watch Fantasmic! 😍😭🎉 I feel so blessed to have experienced this with my MW friends who I consider family too! 💗
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!
