    Can anyone in Disneyland spell?

    First, this picture, from the Disney Gallery, where Disney seems to have confusion between the word "peek" and "peak":



    Even worse, pictures from the Pinocchio attraction - originally the imagineers misspelled the name of this beloved character!



    But quickly fixed it:



    Question: Should there be some sort of spelling test to get the job to make signs at Disney parks?

    Talking Re: Can anyone in Disneyland spell?

    Right on! I get so upset by things like this. I mean, an occasional misspell in an email or whatever...not a big heck of a deal....but who in the heck didn't find out what they were painting or printing? PINNOCHIO (Pinno-cheeo?)

    Yeah - I cringe when I see things like this.

    Re: Can anyone in Disneyland spell?

    I've always been very good at spelling and proof reading.

    In recent years this has become a real problem in so many areas of publication and signage. Even The New York Times frequently has misspellings. Something unheard of years ago.

    And the most amusing story I read recently came out of Amarillo, Texas, where officials welcomed home eighth-place national spelling bee finisher Caitlin Campbell in June with a billboard, but misspelled her name as "Cambell."

    Thanks for sharing the two photos, Froggy!

    If I remember correctly, I had to learn how to spell to get out of elementary school..........and into Junior High.

    So, what has happened to our society?

    The bar has been significantly lowered. I know that when I graduated in 95, there were people in my class who couldn't even READ! WTF!

    Re: Can anyone in Disneyland spell?

    I was the Chyron operator for our local news station for years(those graphics you see at the bottom of the screen indicating location, or who is speaking).

    State rep. Jim Dyer has never forgiven me for misspelling his name "Dim Dyer" on air.
