help an old annual pass holder that now lives out of state. I forget the good times to go. We are planning to come spring but with a late Easter this year I'm thinking more of the 1st week in May, is that a good time to go? I can't remember! I'm getting old I guess! We aren't really se More...
It's been a while since I've been on here. Hope everyone is well! I have a wdw question, thought there was a mw for wdw but can't find it. Just wondered if anyone knows how the crowds are the week following thanksgiving at wdw. We are hoping to go for the first time dec 1st for a week. I figured the same as DL so I was hoping not super crazy! Thanks!
I wanted to post a warning about the special for tickets at Costco that was going on not too long ago and if they are still selling them (I don't know if they are). We flew out for Christmas and had our 4 day tickets a friend bought us. On the 3rd day we were denied entry. After some research I'm finally getting answers from Disney. Apparently our tickets were used 2 days in October. I'm thinking More...
I was wondering if anyone knows if DL still sells the travel coffee cups that were a hard plastic and had a handle? My mom wants one and I didn't see them when I was there and ran out of time to look. I'd be even more grateful if someone would be willing to buy/ship to me and I'd pay for all the costs. Thanks!
Quick question about disneyland tickets, hope someone can help... We have a 4 day pass and our first use was dec 26th, I had always planned to go on the 7th but now I'm doing my math and so my question is does it expire the 13th day which I assume is the 7th or does the first day I use it count as day 0? I basically need to know if we are still good to go the 7th. We've had a blast so far even wit More...
I know I'm more of a lurker than a poster so I apologize for that. It seems I can only post quickly when I have questions as my 2 little ones keep me running! With that said, I'd like some advice on what days we should plan for Disneyland around the holidays. I did ask a few weeks ago but now we are planning for 2 days instead of 1 and they don't have to be consecutive. We are flying in on the 24t More...
Good morning everyone! I first wanted to thank everyone for the last few weeks and all my questions. We just spent 2 wonderful days at DL. Even though it was crowded we had a blast and did a ton thanks to this app! Thanks admin for creating it! I wasn't able to post in the park however or check the lounge, which bummed me because I wanted to meet some of you. My other disappointment is that they w More...
I know the parking structure opens an hour before the parks. What time would you recommend us getting there so we can be at the rope drop tomorrow? I don't mind sitting and waiting for the parking structure to open. Sorry for the many questions! Hope to post more quality over the next 2 days! Thanks!
We're in CA! So excited to be here. Will be at DL Monday! Quick question, world of color; what is the best way to see/do it, the fast pass or the picnic lunch? I know where to get the fast pass but times to get it? As soon as possible?
Leaving in the morning to drive out there! It will be a long 3 day drive with 2 toddlers... But so worth it! So excited to be back in CA and will be at DL in 7 days! Also had hubby put mw on his phone and he thinks it's awesome.. Don't know if he'll post though.
My awesome birthday present from my husband (it was yesterday)... I want to add it to say mom on the other side with the o as a Mickey head. Now everyone will be sure to find me when we are there in 9 days!
Today is my birthday and I'm so excited to be in the parks in 10 days! My husband said today That I can choose any restaurant in the park as my birthday present! I'm now thinking napa rose! I also want to do the birthday thing for my daughter at plaza inn. Her bday is in july. Also, since I like to post with pictures here are my kids silhouettes from last May. My daughter was 22 months and my son More...
Has anyone stayed at the tropicana across the street? Do you know if they charge for parking? I debating between that and the Fairfield inn Marriott they are the same price but Marriott charges for parking. Or is there a better comparable hotel I should look at? We typically stay at my in laws but thought for 2 days in a row it would be easier not to fight traffic
Is blue bayou worth the price? My DH says when he went years and years ago the food was bland. I've never eaten there and would love to go for my birthday. Would you recommend lunch or dinner? What entrees?
So it looks as if our trip out there to ca is going to be moved up to around memorial week instead of the 4th of July. How are the crowds on memorial day? Looks as if there may be a meetup being planned too, exciting!
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!
