While many of you are probably still recovering after screaming your brains out with excitement over a certain animatronic dragon, there is one item on the opposite side of the park that no one has really cared notice--Redd Rocket's Pizza Port's marquee sign.

Yeah, so what?
Well, the sign that has been there for years since the opening of TL 98, with it's 3-d lettering and glowing awesomeness at night, isn't exactly the same right now.
Santa Ana winds ripped through Tomorrowland and knocked off a few of the letters from the sign. The neon letters came crashing down, smashing into several pieces. Luckily, no one was hurt, as it was just a little bit after opening time. Maintenance crews were quick to take down the rest of the sign before guests got confused. The restaurant was sign-less for the time being.
The sign was replaced with a temporary printed "flat" that basically mimics the original before the old sign could be fixed. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the glowing awesomeness at night.
As it turns out, this temporary sign has been in place for A YEAR! At this point, the new sign should be installed in a few months. What boggles me is that no one, not even a micechatter caught this until now (I didn't even notice myself until a friend of mine pointed it out and relayed the story). Of all little things Disney, I'm boggled that this one slipped past the Disney theme police/ Trip Report paparazzi-- and it's in clear view! Boy, MC dropped the ball on this one... ( I guess it was D23 announcements and dragons that got the best of ya'll)
Just thought I'd point that out
