Sincerely 'Fro Me to You - Indiana Jones


One of our favorite attractions at Disney MGM Studios (now called Hollywood Studios) at Walt Disney World is the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. We've seen this exciting stunt show all six times we've taken the kids to Disney World (and the one time Hubby and I went by ourselves). And TWICE I've been picked to be an extra in the show! Last time both Hubby and I were picked, much to the kids' delight! We got to dress up as residents of Cairo. Pretty convincing, aren't we?

In our scene, Indy and Marion are watching street acrobats before the show takes a turn for the worse and a massive fight scene quickly follows; the scene concludes with Indy shooting at a jeep loaded with explosives, producing a fiery conclusion. During all this Hubby and I were supposed to be shopping for carpets.

I won't tell you what happens next - it's a pretty fun surprise! But if you're ever at Hollywood Studios be sure to check out this show -and volunteer to be in it! You, too, could wear such cool outfits as we did! And your kids will LOVE it!

Oh my! My husband would just die if he was chosen to do something like that! I think I would giggle too much.

Thanks for sharing. I bet your kids still laugh about it!

I especially love the jeans and trainers peeking out from under your costumes. You can hardly tell y'all were extras pulled from the crowd!!!

Okay seriously looks like a TON of fun. And since my husband and I are actors, I know that this would be WAY AWESOME for us to do & Right up our Alley! :D
