    Indiana Jones closing soon?

    Jim Hill wrote yesterday that Indiana Jones may be on it's last legs. With the opening of Lights, Motors, Action it may be time to bring Indiana Jones ride to WDW. Time will tell.

    Does "Motors" arrival mean that Indy's now on his way out?

    I hope not because I have yet to see the stunt show. When I was at disney/MGM, cheerleaders were using the area. At the same time Indiana Jones ride sounds very interesting

    I assume you were down there on Saturday, February 12? That's when the cheerleading competition was, and I was down there for it...sorta kinda.

    The one I saw happened in march of last year, but it was saturday. It annoyed me a little because I don't like cheerleading.

    I see...when we entered the Studios, there was a notice at the front that said "Due to technical difficulties, the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular will not be performed today." Well, that was complete and utter bull. We knew what was really going on!

    I like Indy, but I think it is in need of an update. Although from what I have read about the new stunt show, there are some similariites, and I don't know if MGM would want to keep two "stunt" shows, but hey, it is an entertainment park, so who knows.....BTW I have seen the Indy show about 10 times and have yet to be chosen!!!
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    My husband will be devistated if it closes. He has been twice in the last 5 years and got picked both times for the show. He is loud and big. He is such a ham that many people stopped us the rest of the day because they thought he was a plant in the audience. They were shocked to actually see him walking around with his family.

    I like the indy show, but I do think it would be cool to have the ride from Disneyland. I'm torn because I don't think Disney should get rid of all the classic favorites like it has in Epcot and Magic Kingdom. Indy is a fun show and you learn things unlike a bumpy thrill ride. Still, I think the ide of actually being Indy in search of an ancient artifact would be a lot of fun.

    As much as I love the ride in DLCA, I hope they keep the stunt show in MGM. The last thing that I want is for all of the Disney parks to become carbon copies of each other.

    ...Otherwise, it'd be kind of pointless to visit all of the "different" Magic Kingdoms and other parks.

    I wasn't actually a screamer they lady ask for a happy person in the audience and I just jump up and said me realy loud and she said to come on down. Needless to say it was really fun to do. I got to wear the cheese sheet on my head and everything. They also make you sign a wavier just in case you get hurt IN OTHER WORDS IF YOU GET KILL OR SOMETHING TO THAT GROSS MATTER THEIR NOT RESP. FOR YOU. Sound morbid I know (sorry I digress) I also wait unitl I was 19 to and I never got pick for any of the thing they had until last year when and I'm 33 now. I hope you don't have to wait as long as I did.

    Here a tip that I hope might help you get picked. Try and sit in the front (this doesn't alway work) but try and just jump up an down and act like a total fool ( enough to grab their attetion not where you would scare them and say okay next person ) also I was pick for another audience particpation it was for the first part of the backlot studio tour the part were they show you how they film a water shot. Before you go in there is usually a cast member way at the bottom of the entrance directing you to get on line not the one at the way top the one at the entrance I just ask him how so they pick the people for the stunt he said at radom while you are waiting on line and then he ask if I wanted to do it and of course I said yes. This was the best accpet I was the one in the Cap chair were all the water gets dump on you. but non the less it was fun I hope this helps you get picked. I waiting on a new scanner it should arrive today and when it does I will posted pictures of both my audience particapations

    Not problem anytime. My stupid scanner still haven't arrive yet I'm so mad I've been waiting a week and UPS keeps missing us so I'm trying to square things up now to see if I can get it by the next two days. As soon as I get it the first thing I'm going to post are the pictures trust me they are good and yes you can laugh at me beacuse I laugh at them all the time myself. If you ever need any other tips I will be more then glad to give you any I know and also ask everybody else on the site there really good at give some great tips as wellOh yeah my daughters both of them got pick for the Festival of the Lion King ( they wanted you to know that I forgot) it was there first time ever going to WDW last May and they got pick it took me to turn 30 for me to get pick and I've been a zillion times more then them what's up with that. I wonder if they have connections HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Got snoop around the house and find out now ( i know bad mommy but I have to know)

    awh, that must have been very exciting for your girls to get picked! i have passed your tips on to my brother since indy is his fave and he's now over 18...we used to play indy stunt show in the hotel room(not an easy feat) and would pretend to run from the giant boulder down the halls of Y&B club...needless to say it might look strange if at 23(me) and 19(him) we still did that, so we'll have to try for the real thing
