* AllStarCast: Although not as blatantly advertized and abused as Creator/DreamWorksAnimation, the movies in the canon will occasionally have a staggering roster of A-list celebrities lending their vocal talent. Before 1992's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' introduced Robin Williams as the Genie, Disney preferred actual voice actors. After that, they started to increasingly advertise celebrity roles. Some of the more blatant examples: Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi as the leads in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', MileyCyrus in ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' (particularly egregious because she replaced [[Creator/ChloeMoretz a voice actor]] who had already recorded most of her lines) and perhaps Creator/MelGibson in ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}''.

** [[Disney/SaludosAmigos The]] [[Disney/TheThreeCaballeros package]] [[Disney/MakeMineMusic movies]]. [[Disney/FunAndFancyFree All]] [[Disney/MelodyTime of]] [[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad them]]. Most of them didn't receive wide theatrical re-releases, and most of their home video releases didn't receive large advertising campaigns. It's becoming rather odd since various characters from the package movies are represented at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks, most notably through the rides Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros. ''The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad'' [=DVDs=] are a common sight in stores around Halloween and they get a special packaging with a jack-o-lantern stencil or trick or treat bag included,[[note]]and these apparently sold well enough for Disney to select ''Ichabod and Mr. Toad'' as the first package film to release on Blu-ray twice, once by itself, and again bundled with ''Fun and Fancy Free'' and ''Disney/TheReluctantDragon''[[/note]] so that one's also not always an example.

* CrossDressingVoices: Mostly averted. Disney usually uses actual kids to voice child characters.

[[Disney/FunAndFancyFree All]] [[Disney/MelodyTime of]] [[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad them]]. With the exception of the ''Caballeros'' films (which were released together on 1 DVD in 2008 with minimal advertising), the last home video release of most of these movies is 2000, as a part of the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyGoldClassicCollection VHS & DVD line, and Disney did not promote any of these releases, hence the movies are only known by animation enthusiasts and collectors nowadays. ''Fun and Fancy Free'' and ''TAOIAMT'' were, however, finally released in 2014 as the first package films to reach BluRay. It's becoming rather odd since various characters from the package movies are represented at the Disney theme parks and ''The Three Caballeros'' is actually an EnsembleDarkhorse in the canon, being the only one that had a theatrical reissue schedule like the primary Disney films. [[note]]The infamous Mr. Toad ride in Disneyland is a good example, but coming across face characters of the ''Three Caballeros'' while visiting Disney World is also not out of the question.[[/note]]

** The son of Carlo Collodi, the author of the original ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio'' book, hated the [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Disney adaptation]] for playing fast and loose with his dads story, and even unsuccessfully tried to sue the studio for misrepresenting his fathers work.



** The descendants of Creator/VictorHugo bashed Disney in an open letter to the Libération newspaper for their ancestor getting no mention on the advertisement posters for [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame the Disney adaptation]] of ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', and they harsly criticized the film itself as a vulgar commercialization of Victor Hugo's story.

* CanonForeigner: ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'' is the only entry in the canon that was not made by Feature Animation - they produced the film, but it was animated by Disney's Secret Lab (formerly Creator/DreamQuestImages), a short-lived special effects department that worked on CG imagery and was intended to be a sort-of cross between Creator/{{Pixar}} and Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic. Secret Lab was shut down long before [[HilariousInHindsight Disney bought both of those companies]], and ''Dinosaur'' was the only animated film they ever worked on.

I tried to introduce a little sentiment into it by getting Alice involved with the White Knight, but they said we couldn't tamper with a classic. So we just kept moving it at circus pace."''

-->"I drew with great excitement, thinking how good it was to work on a Disney feature. When Robin Hood was completed I decided it did not look the greatest of films. The heart wasn’t in it. It had technique, the characters were well drawn, the Xerox process retained the fine lines so I could see all of the self indulgence of the animators, each one saying, “Look how great I am,” but the story itself had no soul."

** Per word of Creator/ChuckJones in his book ''Chuck Jones Conversations'' (who did his own animated adaptations of Kipling's stories), Kipling's daughter hated [[Disney/TheJungleBook the Disney adaptation]] of [[Literature/TheJungleBook The Jungle Book]] for being an InNameOnly adaptation of her father's work.
-->"Before we started our film, I discovered that Kipling's daughter was still alive and called her. In an elegant, British Dowager-like voice, she confirmed my pronunciation (of Mowgli's name) and added "and, I hate Walter Disney." It was the only time I ever heard anybody call him Walter. In her lifetime, she said nobody ever pronounced anything but Mauwgli."

Added DiffLines:

** Animator Will Finn enjoyed working on Disney/TheLittleMermaid, but he stated on his Small Room blog that he was not happy with his animation of Grimbsy, saying there are only one or two scenes he did that don't make him cringe today.
