  • [Question] Is Disneyland's Astro Orbitor mis-spelled?

    This is confusing.

    The proper spelling of Astro Orbitor, should be Astro Orbiter. I can't seem to find "orbitor" anywhere, except for the title of the ride, at Disneyland.

    What's interesting, is that WDW, has the proper spelling.

    Does anyone have any info on this?

    Astro Orbiter | Walt Disney World Resort

    Astro Orbitor | Tomorrowland Attractions | Disneyland Park

    They are afraid of new ideas.


    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    Very interesting, granted the one in WDW is a better ride, I would love to know why there is a difference in spelling though.

            Did you Google it? It's used plenty.

              Paul Pressler hired the cheapest person off the street to re-name the Rocket Jets and this is the result.

                You have to pronounce it like Marvin the Martian, not Larry the Cable Guy. The distinction is necessary because of the proximity of Carsland ...

                  I did, and the only thing I could find was the ride and some Australian video-game. If you google "orbiter", there is much more results.

                  I also dictionary.com'ed it and "orbitor" wasn't found.

                    Orbitor, in this instance is a name. Names can be spelled in many variations with the same pronunciation.

                    Just ask Billie, Billy, and Billi.

                    Fwiw, the word Orbitor is also a name of a telescope, a children's science toy (a moving model of the Earth and Moon orbiting the Sun), and a cheesy, As-Seen-On-TV, listening device, among other products. Many involve some sort of scientific or electronic device.

We developed a psychological approach to everything we do here. We seem to know when to 'tap the heart.' Others have hit the intellect. We can hit them in an emotional way. Those that appeal to the intellect only appeal to a very limited group. Let's not let the mechanics get in here and foul the whole thing." -Walt Disney

                      It's also in the name of a pinball machine from 1977:

                        Pretty impressive, hiring a guy who died when Walt was a toddler for a refurb, and yet they can't bring back Walt himself. Guess Disney Magic is some highly unstable stuff.

                          I dont think a mis-spelled attraction is the true issue here. Its actually a mis-placed attraction. MC'rs around the globe will agree that "Astro Orbitor" AKA rockets need to be put back in its rightfull place above Tomorrowland.

                          That is an interesting observation and some good findings on the naming of the Astro Orbitor though.

                            Of course it's misspelled. Everyone knows the proper spelling is R-O-C-K-E-T-J-E-T-S. They painted it wrong too (and forgot to put it back in its proper space - thanks Tony *frown face*).
