Sweet Valentines date with my Valentine of 20 years tonight!! Being that it was just the two of us, we went slow, and took the time to admire some of the wonderful details. Loved spending a little extra time, like we used to do when we were dating, in NOS... 😊
Our daughter has her own "Disneyland Plaid Doggy" to escort her around the "hood" on Halloween! She came up with this costume for our dog Flynn all on her own! I think it's pretty stinkin' cute and clever! 😊 We also thought that of we couldn't find one, we wouldn't need a costume, he could just go as the dog from Pirates of the Caribbean! But this costume wins this year!! 😊
I just want to say that the Birthday Bash celebration last night was so awesome!! I loved talking with so many of you!! I thought La Brea Bakery was such a great location, and the staff there served our crowd beautifully! The planning team went above and beyond... There really aren't words to express our gratitude to all who helped make this event so fun and welcoming for everyone!! Once agai More...
Our server went to check if there was anyone to write on the plates... I wanted "Mother Daughter Weekend"... He said that there wasn't, but if we didn't mind waiting a few minutes longer, they would have someone up in the club write it special for us!! I love that he went the extra mile to have this special dessert made for my girlie!! 😊❤️
When I was here about a year ago with my older daughter for a mother daughter weekend, my daughter got to meet and take a pic with Bella Thorne... Now I am here today with our younger daughter, closing out our mother daughter weekend, and my girlie got to meet Olly Murs (sp??). Haha!! We didn't know who he was, but were told he is huge in the UK and opened for One Direction! Fun!! 😊👍
I'm so bummed that mine wasn't with this one, but going through a box of old letters and things from our dating days, I found Admin's first annual passport!! He said I could post a picture of it here! This is what they looked like back then. A printed photograph laminated right on to the pass!! And, it looks as if they cut them out by hand!! This was issued on 12/10/93!! We got them for Chri More...
20 years ago today, my sweet Prince Charming and I went on our first date! It was at Disneyland, of course!!! We spent the whole day together at the park... At the time there was just one park, and we parked our car where California Adventure now sits! I was wondering earlier, about why we don't have a single picture from that day... At first I was thinking that our phones must not have had c 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!
