    Disneyland - Map and Paint Need an update

    So I just went to Disneyland a week ago and noticed a few things both on the map and on some of the paint of the building mostly in tomorrowland.
    and before i say anything, sorry i don't have any pics.

    first, I looked at the DL map and noticed some interesting thinds about the autopia and submarine area - they're not correctly animated! I know its not noticeable but i noticed. In Autopia, the station has the correct buildings, but if you look at the track, its still the old track layout, and the track is split into the fantasyland and tomorrowland tracks! Even if you follow the track layout with your finger on the map, its easy to see that one tracks never goes to tomorrowland and its still in the old layout.

    Other things i noticed, that don't matter as much, are that the sub lagoon does not have the extended show building that was built for finding nemo and the old motor boat cruise area is still filled in with water (i don't mean the fantasia gardens, i mean the area under autopia).

    Now the second thing i want to talk about is that Disney needs to keep up with exterior of buildings especially paint. I was walking through Tomorrowland and saw

    Black streaks (not extremely noticeable but still i saw them) on Space Mountain exterior
    The back of HISTA sign which you can clearly see after walking out of Space Mountain had a huge rust, or paint peel, i don't even know what it was?!

    Also, as an added topic, I straight to Space Mo. in the morning and we saw a duck fly into the pizza port window, and he left a stain on the glass, (he was ok and flew away) and when i came back for dinner, they smudge was still there! I think that's disgusting and a castmember should have done something about it, like clean it!

    So, any thoughts on the map or paint.

    They cleaned the exterior of Space Mountain a few weeks ago, but the crud is already re-forming on the exterior and it really looks bad when they don't clean it. They should keep up its maintenance a little more.

    I also wish they would re-paint the Train Station to look more like Hong Kong Disneyland's. The brown is very faded and looks worn.

    Ok and this does not have to do with Tomorrowland, but I was on Indiana Jones when it broke down and I couldn't believe how dirty and dusty the entire attraction was. Half the effects weren't working and the state of the ride out of "show conditions" was a big let-down. The entire queue area displays were also CAKED in layers of dust. Somebody needs to take a Swiffer to some of the displays in the queue. Don't they dust this stuff on a regular basis?

    Haha, there are far larger discrepancies between the map and the real park, believe you me. I still crack up every time I see how enormously far guests apparently have to walk to get to the Indy queue entrance temple...and how the entire ride apparently takes place inside that one structure. Not to mention that they totally screwed up the architecture of the Haunted Mansion.

    And peeling paint? I haven't noticed much lately.

    The French language map of Disneyland Park lists the monorail as being a one way trip only, and it says that Conestoga Fries has "Fries and drinks" and not "Frites et boissons" like Harbour Galley.

    If you think the maps are inaccurate now, you must not have ever seen an old one before.

    this can be very simply attributed to a certain lead who left the area when night custodial had a lead change around recently. basically shook up all the leads out of their default area and into random new ones. the one who left played huge favorites with people, treated outsiders (who aren't in his race) like scum (still does in his new area, psst, just wait for toontown to go to hell, you've been warned) and had several pets installed in the adventureland area.... as a result, the care of rides like indy dropped like a rock, I worked on it, mopping the whole queue line from the entrance where it joins the outside part all the way upstairs and down the other side of the loading stations.

    I even cleaned the cavern/cave room where all the rocks are, people are always tossing stuff in them. the area where a rock exists that looks like a wheel/door with hieroglyphs on it had someone piss in the corner, bringing it up with the named lead just got him barking at me in spanish.... still smelled like someone pissed in it after that. wasn't cat pee, was human piss. I can tell the difference strongly... everyone else I was working with in there spent all their time on cell phones, picking up change on the track for sodas (the ride shakes alot of change out of pockets amongest other stuff) and talking amongest themselves all in spanish.

    usually nightly it is all swept up due to the rubber tires shedding alot of it's tread, oil being leaked everywhere, etc. takes alot to clean it, but is a detail tailor made for those who screw off... I never did, was frustrating dealing with people who screw off when it desperately needs cleaning nightly

    this is highly restrained as you can imagine, I could spend hours talking about the state of disneyland after the main gate clinks shut for the night, but i'll spare everyone....

    data, you're right about the Indy Temple entrance.
    and, also about Indy, on a side note - nothing to do with the paint or maps, but I went on it just before the park closed and all the fire effects in the main room, or the large room, i don't know what to call it, were turned off.
    It was interesting, because when the lasers were shot, they would hit a surface and nothing would happen.

    Yeah, the fire effects aren't always on. Dunno why, but it makes it all the more special when they do work! I love how you can actually feel the heat...it's pretty cool. Er, warm. As it were.

    And regarding the "main room" or "large room", it's officially known as the Cavern of Bubbling Death. I kid you not. Although in earlier years I just called it "the room with the fire bridge", which goes to show how big an impact the pyrotechnics made on me.

    It's part of the abandoned temple ambience.
