Field Tent # 61281

You may have heard about the Dip Site restaurant being renamed Oasis Canteen and featuring a new menu.  It was under a quick rehab, where signs were swapped out but the building is very much the same structure that it's always been.  There is something we spotted on this building that references its connection to the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular attraction right behind it that you may have overlooked.

If you take a look at the new menu, you'll notice something more than just what's for sale...

Located just underneath the menu is some text that says "FIELD TENT #61281".  Knowing Disney as well as we do, we know this has to be a hidden "code" to reference something.

The number "61281" is a reference to the film Raiders of the Lost Ark, which is also the film that the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is based off of. Specifically, that number is the date that Raiders of the Lost Ark was released, June 12, 1981.  Disney loves to sneak in date references in where they need a set of numbers such as on the back of the AT-AT walker at Star Tours or the trolley car number on Sunset Boulevard.
