** Speaking of Tokyo Disneyland, remember the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse hats that are sold at every Disney park. Well in Tokyo, they also have hats for characters such as [[WesterAnimation/ToyStory The Little Green Men]] and [[Disney/TheAristocats Marie.]]

** ''Dinosaur'' at Disney's Animal Kingdom was originally going to feature a T-Rex that chased guests. However, when word got out of the discovery of Carnotaurus fossils, it was decided that the ride would feature the newly-discovered dinosaur.
** Dinoland USA initially had a roller coaster called the Excavator, a runaway mine train through an abandoned archaeological dig site alongside a safari ride featuring animatronic dinosaurs. While the Excavator was scrapped, Dinoland eventually got its roller coaster in the form of Primeval Whirl, and the Dino Safari ride was reimagined into Dinosaur, AKA Countdown to Extinction.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Very prevalent in the late Eisner-era, like so many other things at Disney. The Subs getting shut down for the first time, the entire fiasco surrounding Journey Into Imagination, the infamous cost-cutting that went into California Adventure, the Paris Studios park and Hong Kong Disneyland, and other problems.
** When Walt Disney World was in early development, there were plans for rides based off ''Sleeping Beauty'', and ''The Sword in the Stone''. However, Roy Disney felt Florida deserved their own versions of already existing rides from the California Park, thus they got their own ''Snow White's Scary Adventures'', and ''Peter Pan's Daring Flight''. It's been theorized that the reason the former ride was so scary, was it was a deliberate WriterRevolt.

** According to [[http://www.hiddenmickeys.org/HiddenMickey.html this fan website]], the electric umbrella was going to be replaced by "test track café." Why it didn't happen is currently unknown.

** Animal Kingdom was originally going to have a mythology-themed area called [[http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/jim_hill/archive/2001/01/01/309.aspx Beastly Kingdom]] where Camp Minnie-Mickey is now, but it was ultimately scrapped. In a way, the forthcoming Camp Minnie-Mickey replacement -- an ''Film/{{Avatar}}''-themed pavilion -- is something of a return to that concept (land of fictional creatures). Another attraction at Animal Kingdom that signified a return to the concept of a home for mythical creatures is Expedition Everest, which is similar to a proposed attraction for Beastly Kingdom called Dragon Tower, a roller coaster ride through an abandoned castle that culminated in a close encounter with a fire-breathing dragon. However, Everest has a yeti instead of a dragon and a snowy mountain taking the place of the castle. Also, Dragon Tower was planned to be an inverted coaster.

* 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.

** ''Illuminations'' was originally going to have its score composed by Music/HansZimmer. Due to scheduling conflicts, his colleague Gavin Greenaway was sent instead, by Zimmer's recommendation.
