The names of some of Yosemite National Park's most iconic attractions are changing Tuesday.
The National Park Service announced that it would change the names of Curry Village, the Ahwahnee Hotel, Badger Pass Ski Resort and other attractions after failing to reach an agreement with the company that says it owns the trademarks to those attractions. The company -- Delaware North -- has served as the park's concessionaire since 1993, running numerous operations until losing the contract to Aramark, which takes over on Tuesday.
These name changes took effect at midnight:
● Yosemite Lodge at the Falls becomes: Yosemite Valley Lodge
● The Ahwahnee becomes: The Majestic Yosemite Hotel
● Curry Village becomes: Half Dome Village
● Wawona Hotel becomes: Big Trees Lodge
● Badger Pass Ski Area becomes: Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area
Park Service employees will start placing temporary signs over road signs directing visitors to the attractions.
