* NextSundayAD: The movie was released in 1997, but took place in 1999. Either that or the characters are rounding up when they refer to 1939 as "sixty years ago".

If such tropes were to exist, this movie would be the TropeMaker for "The Film of the Ride" or "Theme Park-to-Screen Adaptation"; a unique twist on something that's usually the other way around.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Weird, albeit justified, example. Most of the scenes involving the hotel were filmed at the actual attraction in Disney World, which was the only version of the ride in existence at the time. Thus, although the movie is set and mostly filmed in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, it switches to UsefulNotes/{{Florida}} whenever anyone gets close to the tower. Fortunately, Florida and southern California have a similar climate and the area around the attraction was made up to look like Hollywood anyway. The Florida scenes were filmed first, in case you were wondering.
