    Absolutely correct. It seems like it's really hard for design to persevere. I go to all sorts of places (hotels, restaurants, shops, etc.) where you can just tell that there was a great, thought out scheme for things and then someone comes in later and makes changes willy-nilly for no good reason.

    Bad show!

    Totally Ikea to me! But I like it better than that confetti - so 1980s!!
    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 miss the old sign that used to welcome you into Disnyland. *sigh*

    The sign is still hideous, and a poor excuse for
    welcoming guests to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    IT is uglier than Betty!

    I miss the Old Marquee, either one of those
    would be SO MUCH BETTER than the current craptacular sign.

    HA!! Uglier than Betty. Good one!

    One positive thing - at least Disneyland got top billing.

    It should've been in a lot bigger font though...

    Tokyo Disneyland did exactly the same thing, used in the same contexts, even using the same font and nobody is complaining about it!
    A) None of the other logos are over 50 years old.

    B) The company tends to drop park logos in favor of resort logos in merch and everywhere when it can. WDW uses it's resort logo in all four parks and everywhere, all over the place. Previously, back when it had the Mickey-Globe resort logo, it was seen mostly outside of the parks while the parks maintained their own identity (long-gone EPCOT Center logo, anyone?) There's a few exceptions like SpectroMagic, but that was about when the "use the resort logo anywhere you can" policy started up anyway.

    Yep. This is why they tore down the big marquee and later the DLH letters. A height restriction was made, mostly because Disney themselves asked for it as the resort corridor outside the parks started building bigger and higher.

    Here is another example of how the new paint is out of place - let's just hope this one isn't next.
