    Angry Those Misleading Guide Maps

    Have any of you noticed the mistakes in the guide maps? The DCA map says that Goofy's Sky School is open and so are the new nearby restaurants. The disneyland map shows the railroad tunneling underneath Gadget's Go Coaster and that the Grand Canyon and Primeval World are not there. Also, it does not show the People Mover track (except for a little bit of it at the entrance to Tomorrowland).

    Have you noticed any other mistakes?

    There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

    I never noticed the Gadget's Coaster one. I think the Grand Canyon thing is supposed to be kinda a surprise, so I don't dock points for that.

    I just looked right now and noticed the front of the Haunted Mansion is facing the wrong way. The entry gate is in the right place but on the map, it shows it leading into the side of the mansion.

    Why would they show the People Mover track when it's not even operational?

    I think it's so on the map, it shows it from the front, instead of the side of the building.

    Re: Those Misleading Guide Maps

    Weird about having the GSS ride and restaurants say open now. I was there two weeks ago and the map I have just say coming soon. They are advertised, but clearly says they arent open yet. I wondered what made them switch those maps out before July? Kind of weird.

    The other stuff isnt a big deal to me and stuff happens.

    Well IIIII know why they do that but I'm just pointing out the inaccuracies lol, I totally understand "cheating" (as they would say on a film set) the direction to be at the best angle.

    OH OH and Tarzan's Tree house is like 100 feet away from the Indy temple when in reality, it's practically above it. There's also no room for the queue of Indy on the map as it shows just a bunch of brush.

    This is a crisis of great catastrophe! Quickly, the parks must be shut down immediately and closed forever!

    There's a bunch of forests where the backstage areas are supposed to be. Is that a mistake?

    The maps don't list magnetic declination and are missing scale, longitude lines, and other markings.

    Makes orienting with a compass a real pain...

    It could be worse. My GPS says that we should keep going past the "secret bathroom" to get to Space Mountain, when in fact, that just leads you to a cast member only zone that gets you kicked out of the park.
