**When the Country Bear Jamboree was to be removed from Disneyland, the Imagineers attempted an AuthorsSavingThrow to at least keep the Country Bear characters themselves in the form of a WackyRacing attraction called the ''Critter Country 500''. Unfortunately, nothing could stop Paul Pressler's demands for a profitable Winnie the Pooh attraction.

* 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. ** The licensing deal originally 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 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 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 teacups" keeps this from being much of a problem, however.

Chained potholes are frowned upon.
** At one time under Jeffrey Katzenberg, Disney would have had ''Creator/{{Nintendo}}'' integrated into their parks. Not much is known about these concepts except that it would have been initiated right after the ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' LiveActionAdaptation was supposed to be successful. The kicker? [[BoxOfficeBomb It]] [[FanonDiscontinuity was]] [[TroubledProduction the complete opposite]] of what they'd hope for, and the attempts to integrate Nintendo within Disney were ultimately abandoned after that film bombed, starting the VideoGameMoviesSuck trope and getting a no-film mandate from Nintendo. Katzenberg departed the company a year later. *** Two decades later, Disney's worst fears were realized when Nintendo snubbed them and instead gave Ride/UniversalStudios the rights to Nintendo properties for theme parks. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero That's]] [[LaserGuidedKarma gotta]] [[NeverLiveItDown sting]].

* PropRecycling: Various animatronics from closed rides. Dozens and dozens of ''America Sings'' characters were moved to ''Splash Mountain'', and various bits of ''World of Motion'' have shown up in everything from Pirates to just hanging around the California Adventure backlot section for atmosphere. It was necessary in Splash Mountain's case to do a lot of reprogramming to make the America Sings animatronics "forget" their old routines. ** When Journey to Imagination went down for its first refurbishment, most of the props were removed from the ride and sold off. However, they kept the Dreamfinder's vehicle - it now sits in the rafters of the [=MouseGears=] store in the Innoventions area of the park. * 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.
