    Those Disney Details (Monsters Inc.)

    While I've seen many posts about how Disney isn't as detail-oriented as it used to be, a recent trip on Monsters Inc. that resulted in a break down gave me a rare chance to see that the details are still there. During our ride, it stopped just as we were entering the room with Roz's work station and the bulletin board with a variety of notes pinned to it. I was seated on the right and had about ten good minutes to read the notes posted there before they evacuated us.

    Talk about even the minutest details not being over-looked. On the board, there was a top ten list of reasons why your paperwork didn't get filed, a very clever card on the proper way to secure your door to its station, and the most impressive being a full page article on proper scream techniques and a variety of exercises one could do to make sure their screams will be most effective. There were many more, but those were the most memorable.

    The majority of the notes would be un-readable as you pass through that part of the ride, and you would only be able to read them in detail if you were lucky enough to break down right next to them like we did. Sadly, this was the only trip I've taken to Disneyland where I left my camera in the car. These would have made some great pictures. Oh ya, getting to walk through the ride as we were escorted out was cool too. In case you didn't know, there are hidden Mickeys located on the back of Sulley's leg in the bathroom scene and the one near the end of the ride where he's carrying Boo.

    Yes - I posted a picture of the 'Top Ten" list and three billboards packed with stuff in a post I did six months ago, but I'll be darned if I can find the picture now. Hilarious stuff.

    I love all the little details and "fill" too.

    Talk about even the minutest details not being over-looked.
    Still there are "details" that just miss the boat. Like on the ticket booth that has two ticket windows as you first enter. It has a little sign on the first one that has some scratched-out text replaced with some humorous "hand-written" changes. Like somebody just walked by and altered it with a marker pen. That's a great and fun little bit!

    Only problem with that is they stuck another of the same on the other ticket window! It's exactly the same! Completely ruins the effect and implication that it was hand-done "graffiti." What was someone thinking (or not thinking)?
