    Midway Mania or Madness?

    OK so by now most (if not all) of us here at MC know that there currently are plans in the works to build a new dark ride in Paradise Pier over in DCA

    But I've been hearing this ride be called by two different names: Midway Mania and Midway Madness.

    Does anyone here know if one of these names has officially been decided upon to use for the attractions title?

    I just wanna set the record straight for my own benefit, since it seems like in one post I'll put Mania and in the next I'll say Madness lol

    I'd say that the Midway Mania clearly carries the votes, but I can see what you mean about the confusion. I think Disney was looking for another attraction name that guests can mispronounce and be confused about.

    The name has been changed to Midway Psychological Disorder Causing Spikes in Mood for political correctness.


    Yeah... that one was a stretch.

    I thought that was just a working title anyway, rather than what the attraction will actually be called when it's done. Or is that just the case for the MGM version?

    Re: Midway Mania or Madness?

    From what I had read in Al's column Midway Mania/Madness were just working titles.

    Maybe they will call it "Generic Pixar Attraction" to match "Disney Parks."

    What about "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore"? Works for me.

    Cool Re: Midway Mania or Madness?

    There was an old Disney show where Walt was talking about the Haunted Mansion. At one point he says out loud "what are we calling it?" because as most know, that attraction went though a lot of variations in its creation, and even WD apparently wasn't sure what they were calling it at that time. At this point, I don't worry about it too much.

    Cheers.

    Don't you mean "A Walt Disney Pictures presentation of a Pixar Animation Studios Film..." Watching the trip planning DVD for WDW, they say that so often that it just gets annoying. At least with the merger they can just say Disney/Pixar. I'm not to worried about a name at this point either. They'll announce one when they pick one. I'm much more interested in the technology involved in the ride as per the patent request.
