Someone reported this as being new on ToT...

It seems the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is the latest to receive a bilingual safety spiel. All the bellhop that loads you has to do now is press a button on the newly reconfigured control panel and it plays from a speaker above you. The English voice is similar to the one used for the library door warning and unload spiels. I don't remember what the Spanish voice was like.

The spiel and the control panel are the only changes I noticed from the rehab.

This is a practical addition to one of WDW's most popular rides. Spanish is obviously a very popular language and it only makes sense that the ride be more language friendly for the guests benefit.

That was probably the most visable change I noticed on my last visit. Such rides include Space Mountain (the spiel which took the place of "Space Shuttle, this is Flight Safety, you are clear for launch.") and Splash Mountain on the way to the first chain lift. Though I think this is necessary, the rides just aren't the same, especially Space.

Both sides are up today, don't know if it's for good as it was under rehab for another week or so :) and yes, that new spiel has been the complaint of several CMs

They are adding the spanish stuff in at the wrong moment. Too many rides are getting this way.

Space Mountain was the one that bothered me. Why can't they have Spanish spiels when they initially load you, then go back to the original "Space Shuttle, this is Flight Safety. You are cleared for launch." That would sound much better than how it currently is.
