The Kick Ass Menu


There's more detail on this menu than in the entire "Soarin'" ride! It's a clear plastic touch screen wonder! Check out the buttons which are connected to some printed circuitry! Perhaps you order right from your table eliminating that pesky "human" interaction.

I don't have a better pic of the wording but it looks like Latin to me. Am I right? Some of the text repeats so maybe together we can decipher it.

The logo is early 80's greatness. It looks like an Ocean Pacific shirt. Who...oh who... will upload this to cafepress.com so we can all buy t-shirts??

One of you must be wondering what the China pattern is because you'd like to have your own. The answer is.....I don't know! If you figure it out please share with the rest of us.


I'll have the lobster!

  1. Hehe. Very cool menu! I'll order the Lorem Ipsum!! It's a "dummy text" that has been used by typesetters for hundreds of years. It's used to mock-up how a page of text is going to look with a certain layout. Perhaps we will all go back to speaking Latin in the future??

  2. It's too bad that there wasn't more hidden detail. The "Lorem Ipsum" text is sort of a wimp-out IMHO... If they're even going to have text to begin with, they might as well have gone the extra half-yard to have at least put reasonable menu items on the prop. Would it really have been difficult to have wrote "Lobster" rather then "Lorem Ipsum"?

  3. True, anonymous, but Soarin' still sucks.

  4. Hey, it would have been really cool if the menu had items like Lorange Chicken or Lobsterpus but I'm sure that the Imagineers were well aware of visitors' visual deficit in a dimly-lighted underwater restaurant and put their efforts where it mattered most.

    Thanks for pointing out all the really cool things about this scene, Hoot. Best of all you don't have people's feet blocking your view of it!

  5. What's up with the acne on his face? Looks like some 5 o'clock shadow too. Disney attention to detail? A.A. mask rot?

  6. It's just theatre style make-up so it will read from a distance and under harsh lighting.

  7. that menu is sooooo cool!!!I wish disney could have found away to make menus like this for some of the future world restaurants as for what the china pattern is I would guess it is some mass produced china pattern by some popular china company like maybe lenox or royal doulton seeing as they sell royal dulton over at england
