Hello everyone. Has anyone purchased a dinner/W.O.C. package and is it worth it? My work made a 2-night stay at Grand Californian and tickets to Disneyland as a promotion payoff and we'll be there for a weekend in Dec. Really thinking of doing the Ariel's Grotto dinner and WOC package since we will have our 7 year old niece with us. Any thoughts?
Bummed out tonight. We were planning on going to the park tomorrow and Wifey wants to cancel because of the forecast. Trying to convince her that just cuz Evelyn says a "chance" of rain tomorrow doesn't mean it's going to rain.
Look at what Wifey surprised me with upon coming home from San Francisco. A while back I saw my neighbor carrying a tiger striped patio chair and he said his brother made it. I said do you think . . . . Check it out.
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!
