* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: America Sings was clearly a product of the mid-1970s Bicentennial celebration era and it showed. Act 4 Modern Times was already this when the ride opened, featuring only ''one'' song from after the 1950s ("Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night).

** ''Rivers of Light'', the new ''Ride/WorldOfColor''-esque night show at Animal Kingdom has the dubious honor of entering this state mere '''days''' before it was supposed to begin previews in spring 2016. No one knows exactly what was wrong with it, whether it was mechanical or something with the programming/choreography, but the opening was postponed and it took until February 2017 for public previews to begin.

* ''The Main Street Electrical Parade'' has temporarily returned to Magic Kingdom twice since originally being replaced by ''Spectromagic'', most recently in 2010 where they brought it back for the summer until popular demand saw them change it to an open-ended run. [[BlatantLies That's what they told everyone at least]]. The not so well kept secret was that Spectro was in desperate need of refurbishment, and since they needed to get MSEP out of California Adventure because of concerns over crowd control before ''Ride/WorldOfColor'' opened, they figured bringing it back to Florida was the best way to handle both situations. As of July 2013, the "open ended run" has been going for over 3 years. However, the refurbished Spectro floats have been spotted backstage at MK signalling its return is imminent, although no one knows exactly when.

* FollowTheLeader: A trope that unfortunately hung around Walt Disney World throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s after Michael Eisner took over. While both decades were periods of unprecedented growth throughout the resort, the reasoning behind it was less "we should deliver the most original concepts we can to the guests" as it had been previously, and more "why are people leaving the resort, and what can we do to prevent that?". And so the Disney-MGM Studios was built so people wouldn't have to leave to visit the (then-unbuilt) Universal Studios Orlando park, Pleasure Island was built so people wouldn't have to visit Church Street Station, Animal Kingdom was built so people wouldn't have to visit Busch Gardens, etc. This logic came back to bite them when they attempted to apply it to Disneyland on the west coast with Disney's California Adventure, built on the reasoning that if the best of California was showcased in the park then people wouldn't have to go out and actually ''see'' California. The only problem is that most of the park's guests were natives of California, who really didn't care for Disney's take on their state.

** Splash Mountain is based upon ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth'', a movie they otherwise don't like talking about. Rumor has it, however, is that people who are hired as [[InsistentTerminology Cast Members]] on the ride are shown the movie during training.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: [[http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1262449/000119312510008732/dex1057.htm A perpetual licensing deal]] that Creator/MarvelComics signed with Ride/UniversalStudios in 1994 prevents Disney from building anything Marvel-related in Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland, their two biggest theme park markets. However, they are free to build Marvel attractions in their four other resorts. How, you ask? Well, originally, the licensing deal extended to California as well,[[note]]Universal has no parks in France so the deal was not extended there, and at the time neither company had a park in China[[/note]] but when Universal got into a dispute with Marvel over the profits of the license, Universal Studios Hollywood let the rights lapse back to Marvel in 2008... one year before Disney purchased the company. God knows what happened to the poor sod in Universal who made ''that'' call.
* SimilarlyNamedWorks: The spinning teacup ride based on ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' is named Mad Tea Party. California Adventure also features a nighttime ElectronicMusic event named...Mad T Party. The fact that nearly everyone just refers to the former as some variant of "the teacup ride" as opposed to using its name keeps this from being much of a problem, however.

** When Disney initially held the rights to ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' attractions, they intended to have a single ride, where guests would use wands and shoot at interactive 3D screens. Creator/JKRowling disliked the idea and, after numerous disagreements and ExecutiveMeddling at Disney, she reluctantly went to Universal instead. The interactive 3D dark ride concept was retooled into ''Toy Story Midway Mania''.
