  • [Chat] It's Blu-ray, not BLUE-ray! That typo on Main Street, USA

    I first saw this typo over the Spring and was amazed and disappointed the typo in full display on one of the Emporium's windows. Much of my summer visits have ended up over at DCA, but last night my friends and I walked across to Disneyland for the evening. And then I saw this window and it's typo still there. I can't imagine someone at Disneyland hasn't caught this, and I'm assuming they just felt it wasn't worth the cost and effort to fix. I guess it ain't worth complaining about the quality of our education system anymore when a typo can last this long (the DVD and Blu-ray were released in February 2012) at someplace I never expected would just let this go.

    From the text I was expecting this on a price ticket or even a hand written price point not an actual officially printed product. Where's the quality control before they send this thing to print?

      The word "Blu-Ray" doesn't even belong on a turn-of-the century window front to begin with.

        Why be sad over a typo?

        It could possibly have something to do with trademark.

          At the very least that is amusing since it can be argued that Disney was the biggest studio behind the format and single-handedly mainstreamed blu-ray with their combo pack strategy.

            "E" in "Blu-Ray", eh, a minor thing.

            Movie theater cardboard cutouts in Main Street Windows?

            THAT is a much bigger deal.

            C'mon. Disney used to pride itself on 3D Movie Displays for nearly every single new Animated feature. It's sad to see such a CRAPPY display on Main Street USA.
            Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

                I'm with the OP. This is ridiculous. All the money they have and no one caught this??! There are other misspellings in the park too that workers just get lazy/sloppy/ignorant with. For instance the drinks at Mad T Party drinks should be labeled "Drink Mes", not "Drink Me's". I expect common grammar and spelling to be correct at a theme park of this stature. This is grade school level, folks.

                  Yeah. It's exactly like when posters use "then" and "than" interchangeably, or just use "then" and never "than". Does no one attend grade school anymore?

                          Yeah, your totally right about that. Its almost as bad as when people don't use punctuation properly. Thats my pet peeve.

                              Not going to lie, I get a little irritated anytime someone spells out "Blue-Ray".
                              Apparently some people put an "e" where there shouldn't be, and others don't put in the "e" (e.g. you're). LOL!
