It looks like a drawing that was updated whenever something new was added; Big Thunder Mountain is present on the drawing, but traces of Nature's Wonderland are still there--not quite erased-- indicating that this was an early drawing to begin with that hadn't been modified yet when it came to the station name.
Oh - Well, it's kind of hard to see the BTMRR part, we only got the slice online, not the whole drawing...
That's not too unusual a method - I've used it myself. But those kind of interim drawings are usually reserved for internal use. They do an 'erase and replace' on a copy of the old print to get all the details right even though the linework might be a bit shaky, and send it around for all the approvals - or blue-pencil markup if they spot more changes. Once approved, then the draftsman invests the time to lightbox and trace over it with a drafting machine and the proper inking pens, and complete a finished a new drawing where the revisions were made.
That could be quite a bit after 1975 if they never noticed the name had changed, but I'm guessing it's from before.
And I'm betting that the restrooms were soon judged too small - ref: Google "Potty Parity" - architects and building codes historically never allotted enough ladies' room stalls to older public venues, and the lines formed around the building... So the Mens Room moved to a new space on the west side of the hall next to the tracks later - and the Ladies Room would simply knock down a wall and expand to take all the former Mens space on the east side of that hallway facing Front Street. Change the urinals to a few more stalls and sinks, Done.
