    Wink Weirdest/Most Annoying Name Used for an Attraction by the Unknown

    I know that many of us cringe or correct someone when an attraction's name isn't said right. Of course, that's our nature, as we study this place

    On my last visit last Wednesday, as I was walking through the fastpass queue for Splash Mountain, a lady informed several children that they were waiting in line for "Bear Mountain". I've heard people call Splash Mountain "The Log Ride" and several other derivitives, but this newfound term bugged the heck out of me more than any other incorrect Disneyland term I've heard before.

    On my trip before, while in line for Haunted Mansion, this woman who acted like she knew everything about the resort was telling her friend with her all sorts of incorrect names (if she didn't say these names I would have thought she was an AP)...the only term that I can remember was her calling The Many Adventures of Winne the Pooh "The Honey Bear Ride". I thought everyone knew who Winne the Pooh was...especially 40 year olds

    Anyhow, what incorrect terms for Disneyland have any of you heard that's made you want to shake your head the most?

    Haunted House. I know my grandpa isn't the only one to make this... mistake. I actually said it to the people around me on my last visit to Disneyland, just to see how it felt.

    EDIT: It felt ridiculous.

    I just don't understand how people can say the wrong thing while looking at the sign or the map....

    Sponge Mountain, though i believe i READ about it (proibably from here!) and didn't hear it myself.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I can sadly admit that i never get "Jungle Cruise" right the first time.

    I always say Jungle Boats or Riverboats.
    Then I feel always feel like kicking myself after I say them.

    when I went today, I can;t believe how many times I heard people say "Autotopia."
    It does bug me a bit. There was also this lady in line, while waiting for the tram into the park, and she was talking like she knew every single thing about the park. It was annoying...
    She also called Buzz Lightyear "Toy Story Blast"
    I'm not lying...

    I kept mistyping it when putting together the HKDL site, as the Hong Kong version is called 'Jungle River Cruise', meaning that any variation of 'Jungle', 'River', 'Cruise' and 'boat' is likely to come out of my mouth in relation to the ride. I also seem to get many of the Fantasyland darkrides wrong, with the odd word being lost along the way.

    I must admit to getting that fanboy cringe whenever I hear somebody spouting any ill-informed information about anything I know a thing or two about.

    For the most part, I reckon people can call a ride 'Frank' if they still get into the spirit and enjoy the thing.

    For the most part in the parks and in casual conversation I can blow them over. It is actually places like here that it irks me the most.

    My big one is the castles. The names are not possesive.

    You mean it's not Sleeping Beauty's Castle?

    Yep, that bugs me too.

    For some reason my mother can't ever get "Fantasmic" right. She always says Fantasm. It drives me bananas.

    the "pirate ship" as some people like to call the Colombia makes me mad...even though thats what i used to call it when i was younger and didnt know better. Does it count of people call Soarin' Soaring? lol Calling Peter Pan's Flight, the peter pan ride doesnt bother me tho...in fact calling the fantasyland rides by the character names doesnt bother me...but calling Space Mountain, the space needle coaster really gripes my rear! i remember thats what my uncle called it once! THE SPACE NEEDLE COASTER FOR NEVERLANDS SAKE! Autotopia is a big one tho, i would have to admit...ive heard it called the "chevron go carts" *shudder*


    SUPPORT THE CMs


    For me, Tomorrow is everyday...wait...what?
