    Yes really It was actually quite a problem with the attraction first opened. It was INTENTIONALLY not called a roller coaster and those types of descriptions excluded - and it caused many people to complain afterwards (especially since the original SM had to be reworked several times to make it less jarring) that they didn't know what they were getting into. That's what lead to the 'chicken ramp', the ride cars being added to the sign outside the attraction, and eventual changes in descriptions to help guests relate to what they were getting into.

    'Space Mountain' doesn't convey any real meaning to it's actual ride system or level of intensity.

    It looks really odd to have those circles just there. For that reason alone I hope "Toy Store" is illuminated in some manner.

    While you may be correct, I would imagine something called "mountain" is not for the weak or the timid. They had the Matterhorn Mountain afterall as a reference point.

    Mania describes even less what it is for today's audiences. Is it another Disney ploy to sell toy story merchandise? That's what Simpsons Mania was so many years ago.


    Oh well, this is way off topic so I will just stop there. The sign is beautiful! And it's beautiful because it reminds me so much of Main Street USA.
