  • A Memorial Day Quest For Indiana Jones

    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=zmxborDlXB0Finally 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=mWHEpyD6E9cThe 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=gsyjhaBPzQAHope 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.

        Actually, I did get a photo of the umbrella - it's just kind of dark. I saw the crate but was not in a position to get a photo of it. Also, our guide never made mention of Indy in the jungle. I understood that they were supposed to be doing that. Oh, well.

                      Thanks for the terrific photos and wonderful summary of the Indiana Jones offerings in Adventureland. The videos are cool too! And it seems that you dressed appropriately for your quest. I love those hats. Thanks again for sharing your photos and trip report with us!

                        Thanks a bunch for posting those I know how much work is involved. I probably won't get to see these in person because I won't be back to the park until late September.

                          Being that this all happens in a place called "Adventureland," I think that Indy's streetmosphere antics are a perfect complement to Disneyland!

                          Very cool and thanks for sharing!

                          Peace,

                              Great TR! I really wanted to see the show on Monday but it looked so crowded that I didn't think that my son would be willing to wait for or sit through the show, but your TR made me feel like I was right there
