    Alternate Attraction Names

    As a CM at Disneyland, and a regular park goer I am continually entertained at alternate names that folks come up for attractions, shows, and locations. Here are some common ones, feel free to add.

    Main Street U.S.A- Downtown Disney
    World of Disney- Disneystore
    Haunted Mansion- The Haunted House
    Matterhorn Bobsleds- Magic Mountain
    Autopia- Autotopia
    Monorail- the train
    King Arthur's Carousel- the merry go round
    Tower of Terror- the lift, the escalator (not common, but fun)

    I'm sure some other regular park goers, and custodial/attractions CMs have a ton more.

    I've heard several people call Nemo by its old name: 20,000 Leagues
    Also, I've heard BTMRR called "the runaway train ride"

    It may not have been called that, but many ppl probably associate the submarines that they see in the lagoon with the movie.

    My daughter has a friend who called Splash Mountain "Soak Mountain". I told her she can just go ahead and turn in her Disney Fan card now.

    On a bus from the CCI to DL, I heard someone call BTMRR, "Lightning Mountain." Now that was a new one.

    People also call Maliboomer by this moniker: Supreme Scream. Yup...they can't tell their knott's from their california adventures.

    Re: Alternate Attraction Names

    When I first saw this thread, I thought it was alternate names for attractions. These are some of mine:

    -Galactic Land Mass
    -Ursus Arctos Horiblilis Creek Scamper
    -Frightening Structure of a Parallel Universe
    -Journeys by Massive, Luminous Plasma Balls
    -Stupid, aeronautical mammal.

    Yup, it's at California's Great America in Santa Clara. This one guy I listened to after he got off was like, "Drop Zone is way better." Don't come to Disneyland and expect thrills.
