Memorial Day 2008 took my daughter and I to Disneyland in search of all things Indy.
First we spotted this intriguing sign.
Next, daughter had to run from a rolling boulder.
Would we find him on the Jungle Cruise? We found a crate upstairs addressed to Dr. Jones
We found animals
and a black umbrella
and a sign of the Crystal Skull
Yes! Coming off Jungle Cruise we see that Dr. Jones will be here as a special guest speaker
We make ourselves comfortable and look around us
What?! Dr. Jones can not make it. Instead we meet a young woman who says she is an archaeologist and needs our help deciphering the codes in Dr. Jones book in order to find a golden top to a staff.
She certainly is animated.
After receiving help from some of the children in attendance Dr. Jones appears from the fog through the tigers mouth
Is this young woman who she really says she is?
With an upper cut to the jaw by Indy, I don't think so
Hummm, there's that fog in the tiger's mouth. Guess what happens to her.
It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. Now on to find the map
Which takes us to the roof tops of adventure land
Looks like the bad guy has the upper hand
No, wait ... Indy prevails
Next we go over to a balcony.
That bad guy is persistent but Indy has some pretty good moves
Next the bad guy races over to the tree house where the fight continues on the bridge.
Finally, Indy has the map
And it's never too soon to be Indiana Jones
For some live stunt show action, try viewing the videos I took.
First the stunt show on the Jungle Cruise roof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=L9_MNupy8Dc
Next, the balcony http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=zmxborDlXB0
Finally at the bridge of the tree house. This is my first video and the lighting wasn't good as I was shooting into the sun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=mWHEpyD6E9c
The video is also at the tree house later in the day when the lighting was better but I started filming a little too late so missed the first part. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=gsyjhaBPzQA
Hope you enjoyed our little adventure. I will be posting a separate thread on Memorial Day at Disneyland with general topics in a little later today. It takes awhile to resize and upload all these photos
Have now posted and you can find it here
