    Superstar Limo legacy on Monsters?

    It is common knowledge here that whenever a new attraction replaces a previous attraction the Imagineers always include something from the previous attraction into the new one. Examples being the Eeyore sign on IJA and the microscope from Adventures thru Inner Space being seen in the Star Tours film, etc.

    Has anyone, lucky enough to be a part of the soft opening of "Monsters Inc.," identified anything from Superstar Limo making it's way, subliminally, onto the new ride?

    Once in a while Cher pops out of one of the doors and scares the crap out of little kids.

    Legacy? Well I guess you can have a bad legacy cant you. With any luck WDI left out ANYTHING from that buildings sad past and were focused on the future.

    Not sure if this counts, but I'm pretty sure that one of the CDA monsters used to be Drew Carey...

    I heard there is a photo collage of SSL photos that make a large Sulley.

    Isn't pretty much the whole beginning of the ride, where you travel down a dark tunnel and watch TV, the same as it always was? That's good enough for me. One of my favorite things about monsters is they took away all those pitch black unthemed empty rooms that you watched TV in and actually put things in there.

    I did notice that one of the things dressed in yellow (looks like hazmat) is holding out 3 "cards" The Drew Cary AA did the same thing... I did notice that too

    So far I counted two CDA Agents as Limo references:

    1. Jackie Chan - The one CDA Agent wrestling the rope on top of the car.

    2. Drew Carey - As mentioned above...the one with the 3 flyers.

    The operative word here is, "subliminally."

    There's a big difference between placing a subtle or hidden "tribute" in a replacement attraction to honor the previous one, versus utilizing elements from said previous attraction because your project budget sucks canal water.


    I'm guessing that the latter consideration applies more so, regarding Monsters.

    Do I need to write my joke again?
    (When did I ever need permission?"

    From "rate it!" thread:

    Did anyone see the Imagineering nod to the SSL on the attraction?

    If you look real closely at the "digital collage" of Sully, they're all pictures of unsmiling faces from the photo shots unsold from SSL. Each one is a precious moment with the same unseen caption: "What the heck was that? Let's go to guest relations and ask for our 10 minutes back."
    "Here You Leave the World of California Today and Enter the World of, um, er, California Today."

    You're going to have to look really carefully, and I think you need a flashlight. It's in the queue in the room with the projector. You have to look in the overhead space near the projector, and it's dark, which is why you need the flashlight.
