On this episode of the Obscure Disney Podcast, we are asking, Which came first?! Today we explore the attractions that Walt Disney World introduced to the Disney fans that then spread to the rest of the parks. You might be surprised at some of the attractions that originated in Florida.
On this episode of the Obscure Disney Podcast, we are talking a bit about Indiana Jones Adventure (Temple of the forbidden Eye) at Disneyland in Anaheim California.
The Indiana Jones Adventure is an enhanced motion vehicle dark ride attraction at Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, based on the Indiana Jones film series. Guests accompany intrepid archaeologist Dr. Indiana Jones on a turbulent quest, aboard military troop transport vehicles, through a dangerously lost temple guarded by a supernatural power.
The attraction premiered as Temple of the Forbidden Eye at Disneyland in Anaheim, California on March 3, 1995, and opened to the general public on March 4, 1995. A second, and nearly identical, version of the ride opened as Temple of the Crystal Skull on September 4, 2001, at Tokyo DisneySea in Chiba, Japan, unrelated to the 2008 film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
On today’s episode of the Obscure Disney Podcast, we are talking all things roughly the size of the barge and covered in hair. We cover everything from Gaston’s Tavern at Walt Disney World, trying the Grey Stuff and then discuss the patch for the month of September; Gaston Interior Design.
On this quick episode of the Obscure Disney Podcast, we are talking about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. With dates now beginning in August, How early is too early? Listen in to get our take on Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a separate-admission Halloween-themed event held annually during the months of August, September, and October at the Magic Kingdom theme park of the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando, and at Disneyland Paris Resort outside Paris, France. The party began as a response to the Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Florida. Disney’s event caters to a traditional family atmosphere, whereas Universal’s has more of a “fright-centered” event with their monsters (Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, Jason Voorhees, etc.)
The event encourages guests to dress up in Halloween costumes and celebrate the season with themed events throughout the park. Normal rules prohibit guests over the age of fourteen years from dressing in costume; however, this rule is waived for the party, although anyone dressed as a Disney character is prohibited from signing autographs or posing for pictures with other guests so as not to be confused with regular cast members (the Disney term for employees) in those roles.
