A quick thought flashed through my mind. Everyone knows that the safety spiels are very much in character and provide a back story to the ride, but then when the Spanish Spiels come up, it sounds clunky and very out of place. I want to hear your opinions on where the best and worst Spanish Safety Spiels are.
(This also flashed my mind when watching foreign dubs of our cartoon shows here in America and how they sound nothing like the original character, but that's beside the point)
- Casey Jr. Circus Train - I actually rode this one because I was waiting for my fastpass time to come. I never really planned to ride it, but I decided to ride it anyways, and I was actually surprised by the Safety Spiel provided. It actually sounded like the Ring Master, as if the original voice actor knew Spanish and just applied the same voice. That I find very fantastic indeed. It feels very natural and not like they got a Spanish Dub to do the lines and sounds nothing like the original.
- Radiator Springs Racers - Okay, I may be cheating a bit here, but Ramone was the perfect fit because the character's voice naturally fits the role.
- Splash Mountain - Sorry Splash Mountain. Although I love you and you're one of my favorite rides to ride, your Spanish Spiel just doesn't evoke the right Song of the South feel to it. It feels out of place when put next to the English Southern accent.
Sorry it's so short, but my memory of the spiels are a bit rusty. I will be going back to Disneyland in a few days, however. I will report back to you by then.
