The Keister Coaster, a waterslide at Disney World’s BoardWalk Inn, has been in the process of being remodeled over the past few months. However, the remodel took a wrong turn when part of the slide’s design suffered a small typo, which the internet was quick to point out.
As part of the slide’s remodel, Disney Imagineers removed the big clown mouth from it, which shot riders into the Luna Park Pool. Now, it features a new design with Mickey, Minnie and their pals splashing around in the water.
Earlier this week, Imagineers posted pictures of the remodel on Instagram to show the progression of the project. Although, instead of excitement, the post was met with users calling out the misspelling of “Keister,” which was accidentally spelled as “Kiester.”
The images have since been removed from the internet and on Thursday, Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley posted new images acknowledging the mistake.
“In these sneak peek photos with the updated graphic (that’s kEIster! We triple-checked!), you can see that Mickey Mouse and his pals are the ones clowning around as they splash down into Luna Park Pool,” wrote Riddley. “I can’t wait for guests to join along in the fun when the slide reopens soon!”
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is currently closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. At this time, there is no set reopening date for Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. Disney has only set reopening dates for the following Walt Disney World Resort hotels:
Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort: March 22, 2021
Disney’s Beach Club Resort: May 30, 2021
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: June 6, 2021
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort: Summer 2021
