It's raining like crazy here in FL. The only place we plan on going to is DTD for the triplets dinner reservation. They wanted to eat at the T-Rex Cafe which is like the Rain Forest Cafe back home. If anyone has a photo request let me know and I will try my best to post it.
We flew all the way from Disneyland to Disney World to celebrate the 8th birthday of these little guys who were born 15 weeks premature. Not sure if you can see my husband's wedding ring on their feet in the baby photos but they were 1 1/2 pounds each. we're trying to make it over to the Magic Kingdom before the FL rain & thunder storms hit in the next few hours!
Ok...so it's not a Disney Hotel but I had to share this gem with my MW family. We're back in FL to celebrate the triplets b-day! These photos are from our hotel which is 15 minutes away from WDW. It's called the Liki Tiki Village. We have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with a washer & dryer & full kitchen & yes...that is the view of the water park on property from our patio.

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?
