Agreed...too much green still.Think it could use a bunch more weathering to show more tan vs the green matching the building color.....but looks better than the shiny new paint job first seen.......and I do love the bite taken out of the oar........but still too green imho.
To me it looks way too small. I don't like the fact that it's not centered, either, but I get why it isn't.
This stuff is going too far and I say this as a POC.
The walkway sign looks good too. Keep an eye on the "Exotic" sign and how long it lasts. There is actually a group out there that says this word should be one of the many banned words due to the prevailing culture. It's for the usual reasons I won't go into.
Then they squandered available space with the diagonal "supports" on the sides and should have used simpler framing. (And those "supports" also look different.)If I’m not mistaken, its size and position are unchanged.
Everything about the frame is literally exactly the same as it was before. It’s the same frame. And the font of the new sign is almost exactly the same too.Then they squandered available space with the diagonal "supports" on the sides and should have used simpler framing.

Also...the proportion of the "J" and "C" relative to the rest of the letters is not good.

In addition to what's already been said; IMO Imagineering's effort to marry two competing concepts has resulted in a poorly executed sign. Their attempt at conveying the tone of the attraction doesn't quite work because it's not pushed to the extremes. They should have either doubled-down on the Tourist Trap silliness or dropped it altogether. The Jungle Navigation company emblem is spectacular, elegant and prestigious. The bitten paddle gag is silly and tropey and benefiting a Tourist Trap. If that was the intent; such a sign would be in high-contrast and downright tacky, designed to grab your eyes and not let go until you step inside. This sign doesn't do that. In fact it practically disappears against the building. On the flipside had they leaned on the Jungle Navigation Co. concept the results might have been more successful.
Imagine instead if the signage looked more like this:
What's the better play? I honestly don't know. The current sign doesn't work in either scenario. Should they drop the silly? Or push it to the extremes? Regardless, the the image above looks 10x better than the green on green issue they have going on right now. I would have either liked something similar to the above or a sign befitting the "World Famous" Jungle Cruise. Was the subtle native decor so bad?
"We" are illustrating what is wrong with this path.The last few pages of this thread offer yet more proof that the angriest, loudest complainers out there aren’t the fabled “woke mob”.
(ETA: I’m not referring to those posters whose criticisms of the new signs are purely aesthetic.)

We are not the one's on a cleansing agenda.
Things will never be clean enough for the woke mob.
Up next: A cleanse of Tibetan items form the Expedition Everest queue.
Just wait, because it's coming.
Then tell me how authentic these places look, as one by one they become generic and pacified.
