* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', despite being instantly heralded as a classic and one of the defining series of the Disney Channel, suffered constant issues due to its creator Alex Hirsch's lack of experience in running an entire show (he was only 27 years old when it started). By the time the first season wrapped, Hirsch was so exhausted that he seriously considered ending the show right there, leaving it forever on an incredibly tantalizing {{Cliffhanger}}. It wasn't until he shared his plans with Jon Stewart, a huge fan who was horrified at the idea, that he decided to press on, though cutting his plans for the show to run three seasons down to just two. The Disney Channel execs weren't very happy about losing one of their most acclaimed shows so soon, and forbade him from revealing the plan to end the show to the public until the season was almost over, spending the entire time in between trying to talk him into continuing it to no avail. When the announcement finally couldn't be put off anymore, Hirsch was a complete stand up guy about it, making clear that the two season run was entirely his own decision and the fans shouldn't blame anyone at Disney for it, and ultimately came out of the experience with a highly acclaimed project he got to end on his own terms, about the happiest ending to the story possible.

** ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' actually has a relatively easygoing production -- at least in terms of the people involved getting along with each other. The problem was instead the ''story''. They spent several years changing the plot over and over. And then once production had gotten well underway, they were inspired by Idina Menzel's performance of "Let it Go" (Which was written as a VillainSong accompanying a "ThenLetMeBeEvil" epiphany for Elsa, but turned out much more positive and uplifting than they intended even for what was meant to be a sympathetic TragicVillain) to re-write Elsa as a hero rather than a villain. Making sweeping changes to the plot to accommodate this new characterization, they were left with under ''seventeen months'' to finish the film. Due to this change in mid-development, there has been a lot of info on the "Evil Elsa" plot leaked or dumped around compared to most Disney films, including concept art for ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'', unused models, ''a lot'' of concept art, and many unused songs.

** ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' actually has a relatively easygoing production. The problem was instead the ''story''. They spent several years changing the plot over and over. They were doing pretty well once they started production however partway through they decided to make Elsa less of an antagonistic character and completely threw out most of the old plot. They were left with under ''seventeen months'' to finish the film.
