Topic: Horrible new narration on the TTA

Fri 10/2/2009 3:23p
For those of you that don't know yet tehy just replaced all the audio on the TTA. The 1994 theme is gone and replaced with a generic voice and cartoon charecters that talk to you on the ride. Charecters include Stitch, Mickey, Rozz, Buzz Lightyear, etc. the people gettging off the ride now are reporting it is terrible.

Not more toons. Darn it, will those idiots at Disney not understand what made us all fans in the 1st place?

Well i found out some good news about this new narration:

The ride is now once again refered to as the Peoplemover like it was pre-1994

The ride now uses the Goodyear Monorail song (made famous at Disneyland in the 1960s)

The new narration is more in line with the older 1970s and 1980s narration rather than the themed 1994 sci fi retro narration

Perhaps it's the audio quality, but the new narrator sounds like he has some sort of cartoonish style speech impediment or lisp, almost like the beaver from Lady and the Tramp or Gopher from Winnie the Pooh. If that's true, that's very dissapointing. But it didn't sound that way during the entire recording, so perhaps it's a recording echo of some sort by the person who made it.

However, the use of the name "Peoplemover" is very encouraging and welcome as is using the original Monorail theme. A major plus there. The use of Disney characters seemed rather minimal, only when going near or through that attraction giving a one or two line 'plug' for their attractions. (Like Stitch for Stitch's Great Escape, Buzz Lightyear for Space Ranger Spin). That I can live with. It's not that intrusive and mildly plugs the attractions in question. Overall, the new narration isn't that bad from what I could tell. I just hope that the lisp is just feedback on the audio...

The new spiel sounds good. Kinda like a throwback to the old Peoplemover spiels.

I won't listen until I ride, but it seems that they do struggle with the basics at WDW often.

Spirit your enjoyment level will depend on wether you enjoyed the peoplemover narration that existed prior to the TTA version. This new version is almost a carbon copy of it with obvious tweaks because so much has changed.

For the people responsible for this change, a pox on your house for the next 10 generations.
