Play on Words Part Two

Often we disect various aspects of Disney's Hollywood Studios and explain the hidden meaning behind a sign or name of something.  In many cases, the names are nothing more than clever word play by Imagineers.  Basically, the name has no real meaning behind it other than to hopefully give someone a chuckle while reading it and "getting it".

There's a considerable amount of word play to be found in the Studios but this week, we will feature just a few of them.

"Lock 'n Roll"

Found in the queue inside the Rock 'n Roller Coaster, this word play is a play on "Rock 'n Roll", with the name of this parking garage being called Lock 'n Roll and located at the G-Force Records recording studio.

A net full of jello

This visual gag in Muppetvision 3D is a word play but it requires a bit more thinking.  What we see is a net full of jello, which if you say it fast enough sounds like Annette Funicello.  Annette was a famous Disney television and film star in the 1950s and 60s.

The Great Diaper Caper

In the Stage One Company store you'll find this stamped on the walls in the infant and toddler section of the store.  The Great Diaper Caper is a play on words from the Muppet film "The Great Muppet Caper".
