-->-- "Happy World Land Theme", ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''

In the real world, every kid and [[ImGoingToDisneyWorld Super Bowl MVP]] wants to go to Ride/{{Disney|ThemeParks}}land. Or Ride/UniversalStudios, etc. Going there is a fantastic experience, with a plethora of themed attractions.

In cartoon land, kids want to go to Souvenir Land, a [[TheThemeParkVersion theme park version]] of the theme park. The viewer, on the other hand, would find the experience much less amazing. While Souvenir Land is almost always ''treated'' as if it was the world's equivalent of the Disney parks, it tends to be noticeably less original and impressive than anything Disney or Universal has built. [[note]]It can be more accurately compated to the level of Busch Gardens or the smaller regional theme parks that mushroomed in TheFifties but started fading out in TheEighties precisely because the standard assortment of rides was no longer believed worth the ticket price.[[/note]]

Other than the almost-mandatory monorail and the occasional train ride, there are usually exactly three types of rides:

* '''Roller coaster'''. Sometimes steel, but usually wooden. Always completely outdoors with the track supports obvious (i.e. from a distance, it is immediately recognizable as a roller coaster). This doesn't quite fit Universal or Disney-- Universal coasters nearly all feature inversions (which are impossible on wooden coasters), while Disney parks almost (but not quite) always hide the track in some way, whether by putting it inside a building (Ride/SpaceMountain, Rock 'n Roller Coaster) or by theming (Ride/BigThunderMountainRailroad, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Expedition Everest etc.). Ride/SixFlags does use this sort of coaster at its parks, often playing up the nostalgia angle, but typically has steel coasters alongside them.
* '''Boat rides'''. In real life, these take two forms: rides that keep trying to splash you, usually with a big drop at the end, and rides that just use the boat as a form of transportation to show you scenery (Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean is one of these). Souvenir Land boat rides look like the latter for most of the ride, then suddenly throw in a big drop at the end (possibly the result of misremembering Splash Mountain). Ride/JungleCruise is frequently parodied. Oddly, the inevitable "Ride/ItsASmallWorld" parody (which usually features incredibly low-quality puppets that Walt probably would have fired you for trying to put in his park, or super-high-quality puppets that turn out to be enslaved children) is rarely one of these, usually just happening out in the open.
* '''Fair-type circling rides''' (like Dumbo The Flying Elephant or Astro Orbiter in the real Disney parks). These usually will be depicted as a huge deal, a major attraction on par with the roller coasters, and everyone in the group will want to ride, except for the people who get squeamish on thrill rides. This is the most obvious sign of the underlying difficulty, which is that the writers have probably not been to Disneyland or Disney World or whichever since they were little kids, at which point these probably seemed legitimately impressive. [[note]]Indeed, Dumbo is notorious for being so popular with little kids that its small per-ride capacity ensures looooong waits.[[/note]]

There will generally be no shows or novelty format movies in theaters, though there will occasionally be street entertainment. There will be no restaurants -- all food comes from little carts (and characters will sometimes comment that it is expensive, which is TruthInTelevision).

To amuse yourself, take out some maps of the Walt Disney World theme parks (there are four on the property, and beyond that two water parks and more besides) and cross out every restaurant, every theater, and every ride that isn't a roller coaster, boat ride, or Dumbo-type ride.

There will inevitably be people in [[GoofySuit (really bad) cartoon character costumes that obscure the face]]. They will be free to wander aimlessly around the park without getting mobbed by little kids and disturbingly determined parents. [[note]]Nowadays, real characters have to appear at specific "greeting areas" with attendants and well-defined paths for approaching and leaving, because not all guests are all that well-behaved, and even those who are can be very dangerous to a cast member in one of these costumes. "Wandering" characters have not been seen with any reliable frequency since the beginning of the last decade.[[/note]] There will usually be no sign of "face characters", who are actors/actresses portraying characters who look enough like normal humans that they don't need masks or anything along those lines (think of Aladdin, for instance, or the various Franchise/{{Disney Princess}}es). The park may have a mascot character whose face can be [[SigilSpam seen absolutely everywhere]].

Note, however, that the depiction is often not ''meant'' to be a parody, merely an overgenericized example of something that attracts visitors precisely because it relies on exclusive attractions, referencing or parodying which would require additional explanation for the sake of viewers unfamiliar with the original. However, snark often works its way into the depiction regardless, as a stealth rant on consumerism and the ability of entertainment industry to make a profit off any idea, no matter how lame. If taken to the logical extreme, the attraction becomes a CrappyCarnival.

If there -are- specific ride parodies, they will almost always be of older rides -- you'll rarely see a parody of, for instance, Epcot's Test Track. This has the side effect that, sometimes, the show will parody something that isn't actually there anymore. Again, this is probably because the writers are working not from a recent guidemap but from their childhood memories. Such parodies will typically be fitted into one of the aforementioned three ride types -- if there ''was'' a parody of Test Track, for instance, it'd probably be a roller coaster.

Frequently, rides will empty right into a gift shop. This ''is'' TruthInTelevision for both Disney and Universal, where any ride of any significance has its own gift shop which is usually conveniently located right where you exit the ride (although some rides built before the concept took hold, such as Franchise/TheHauntedMansion, have to make do with keeping a merchandise cart nearby). If there is a parade, it will probably be a) in the daytime and b) clearly based on the Main Street Electrical Parade (which is ''at night'', thus the lights that make it "Electrical"; alternate versions of the parade include Fantillusion at Disneyland Paris, Dreamlights at Tokyo Disneyland, and Spectromagic at Walt Disney World).

There is in fact a reasonable explanation for some of this -- theme parks are ''notoriously'' expensive to keep running (as evidenced by the large number of parks that have been shut down over the years) and merchandise sales are always the parks' #1 source of revenue, far more so than ticket sales. Therefore, it's vital for a theme park to entice its guests to buy the merchandise it's selling, as it will ensure that the park has a future. This trope is merely just the result of such a thing going ''way'' too overboard.

Typically avoided in live action, since it's easier to get permission to use an existing theme park than to build your own for the sake of what's usually just one episode. For a time in the mid-1990s, after Creator/{{ABC}} was bought by Disney, virtually every sitcom on the network did [[VacationEpisode at least one episode]] at one of the Ride/DisneyThemeParks in the form of an EnforcedPlug. (Nowadays, [=ABC=] uses grand prize episodes of ''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos'' as their primary Disney shill.)

Remember where you're parked, and turn down your sun visor or they ''will'' paste a bumper sticker on your car.

If it's obviously terrible and not even enjoyable, it's a CrappyCarnival who's going to rip you off without the merchandise.

Compare ''and'' contrast the AmusementParkOfDoom.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Tropical Land in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' - it's very Disney-esque, with a central hub and themed sub-areas.
* Happy Place in ''Manga/DogbyWalksAlone''.
* Magical Land from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' seems to be a big deal, but all that's ever heard of are its rollercoasters. (Watch how Sakaki reacts to it when you see the souvenir picture.)
* Fairy Park in ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars DX 2''. It's a park designed around the Mascots of the series. And it's ran by the Mascots, as well.
* Smile Land, a quite philosophical take on one of these (with a side of TakeThat), is the setting of episode 19 of ''Anime/ErgoProxy''.
* In one episode of ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' Takeo, Yamato, Suna, Suna's sister Ai, and a man who has a crush on Ai named Oda go to "[=MM=] Land" (which is likely a reference to WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse). Yamato originally feared going because she didn't want to jinx her romance with Takeo but is convinced to. Most of the episode is about Oda trying to get Ai to confess to Takeo. The theme park apparently revolves around characters that look suspiciously like cat versions of Mickey and Minnie (which in turn makes them look like Ortensia).
* One foodgasm-induced ImagineSpot in ''Anime/ShokugekiNoSoma'' transforms a group of judges into school girls spending the day at "Yukihee Land," as the dish was [[{{Pun}} a roller-coaster of flavors]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Creator/DCComics has Winkyworld (obviously Disneyland as there's also [=EuroWinky=]), Funny Stuff Park (named after a defunct DC humour title, and with cartoon characters from that book) and Happyland (which similarly has Sugar and Spike on the logo, but is actually a [[CircusOfFear front for Intergang]]).\\
The DC villains, The Extremists, were originally robots created for Wacky World, a theme park from an Earth-like world in another dimension. They were based on real villains from that world and animated by the only surviving member of the "real" group.\\
Survivors of this world, now on ours, treat Mitch Wacky as some sort of god. Too bad Mitch got his neck stepped on. Ouch.
* ''Comicbook/{{Finder}}'' has many domed cities dotted around its world, one of which ([[LostTechnology conspicuously the most intact and well-maintained]]) is entirely taken up by Munkeyworld, an enormous distillation of all that is best and most over the top about theme parks. The whole place is very carefully managed to make sure the customers are kept in a prime state of consumerism, right down to making sure potential employees meet a set of non-offensive criteria, and whipping up the crowds into a hunt for mischief makers like Jaeger, with fabulous prizes for the one who catches him!

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* Fun-Fun Mountain (and other parks with the "Fun-Fun" brand) from ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' was the trope namer when it had a different name.
** Fun-Fun Mountain had an attraction called Souvenir Land, so it's still sort of the trope namer.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The kingdom of Duloc from ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' has some Disneyland-like elements, particularly the "Main Street"-type entrance and a "Small World" parody, as part of Jeffrey Katzenberg's TakeThat against his former employer.
* Fun World in ''WesternAnimation/BebesKids''. Though the Robin Harris comedy routine the movie is based on takes them to Disney World, the film was not made by Disney.
* ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'': An extremely brutal version (which is a Disney production, if the title character doesn't give it away). Goofy takes his son Max to Lester Possum's Park, which is a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of MickeyMouse (who had a cameo in the previous song number). Along with the cartoon costumes, they also brutally make fun of the Country Bears Jamboree attraction. The attack seems less like self-parody and more like extreme CreativeDifferences with the people running the park.
* Super Silly Fun Land, the bizarre theme park in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'', in which Gru is forced to ride a crazy roller coaster along with the girls in his care, and in which he destroys the game stand and "wins" Agnes her stuffed toy unicorn.
* ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars DX2'' takes place in a ''Anime/PrettyCure'' theme park by the ocean.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' (the Creator/JohnnyDepp version) has a parody of "Small World".
* Wallyworld from ''Film/NationalLampoonsVacation'', filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA.
* ''[[Comicbook/{{Asterix}} Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra]]'': One of the Egyptian cities is apparently this.
-->"Wanna buy a sphinx?"
* The main setting and [[TitleDrop source of the title]] in ''Film/{{Adventureland}}''.
* ''Film/{{Zombieland}}'' has Pacific Playland. Two of the main characters put in a lot of effort to get there but it pretty much looks like a standard carnival. The Pacific Playland scenes were filmed at [[http://www.wildadventures.com Wild Adventures]] in Valdosta, Georgia. Wild Adventures is basically one-third water park, one-third second-tier zoo, and one-third this.
* ''Film/TheWayWayBack'' takes place in a water park that hasn't been updated since the early '80s.
* ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'' is a horror film about a man who'd just been fired going on a family vacation to a Disney theme park, and slowly losing his mind in the process as the park's shiny happy facade slips away. Notable for having actually been filmed at Disneyland and Disney World -- ''without'' Disney's permission. (They backed down from trying to get the film pulled from release after realizing that [[StreisandEffect this would just make everybody want to see it]].)

* Serutanland from ''Literature/BoredOfTheRings'', home of Dickey Dragon.
* Averted in the mystery novel ''Dreamworld''-- the titular theme park is obviously the BrandX version of Disney World, so the level of technology, variety of attractions and attention to detail is on par with the real thing.
* Gratuity's mother in ''Literature/TheTrueMeaningOfSmekday'' loves "Happy Mouse Kingdom", an obvious parody of Disney. Subverted in that it's probably nicer than the actual Disney.
* The Gift, in the ''Literature/DiogenesClub'' story "The Gypsies in the Wood" is a Souvenir Land in VictorianLondon, based on a series of books about faeries.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* One episode of ''Series/That70sShow'' had the cast visiting a glorified carnival called Fun Town. There's a fair amount of TruthInTelevision surrounding this one. Wisconsin (where the show is set) is something of a tourist attraction mecca, and both permanent and traveling carnival attractions are long standing. For example [[http://www.ci.green-bay.wi.us/BayBeach/History/index.html Bay Beach]] has existed for over a century.
* Wesaysoland of ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' is an [[CrapsackWorld absurdly pathetic]] version of this. The rides are nearly all under construction, it costs 6 dollars for ice on a stick (minus the ice), there's a nine-hour waiting list for strollers and the mascot is Moolah the Cash Cow. The whole thing was thrown together in a day to take advantage of the newly invented concept of vacation.
* After being forced by ABC (read: Disney) to do an episode [[VacationEpisode set at Walt Disney World,]] the producers of ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' immediately turned around and did an episode about a creepy Naziesque theme park that brainwashes its employees.
* The original opening montage for ''Series/StepByStep'' features the cast visiting an amusement park. The actual park in question is Six Flags Magic Mountain, located an hour north of Los Angeles and nowhere near the ocean - but that didn't stop the show's producers from utilizing some of the worst special effects ever to paste in a beach to cover up the parking lot of the actual park.
* Parodied in ''Series/FatherTed'' with 'Funland' the world's worst amusement park. Among the rides are 'The Ladder of Death' (climb up a ladder) and 'The Tunnel of Goats'. The 'Spider Baby' (a spider in a pram) is probably apocryphal though.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* Ride/DisneyThemeParks
** Bizarre RealLife example: In Disney's Animal Kingdom park, there is a small area within the "Dinoland U. S. A." section of the park. And it is essentially the Souvenir Land version of Animal Kingdom. The ride ''Primeval Whirl'' is a parody of ''Dinosaur'', the other thrill ride in that subsection of the park, and ''Triceratops Spin'' takes on ''Dumbo''. Who says Disney doesn't have a sense of humor?
** ''Ride/JungleCruise'' is a parody of ''itself''. Well, more accurately, the modern ''Jungle Cruise'' is [[SelfDeprecation a parody of the original]] ''[[SelfDeprecation Jungle Cruise]]'' -- while the ride was originally played straight (Walt Disney didn't want to deal with all the complexities real animals would cause in a small area of a park, so he went with robotic ones), the current version is basically one big comedy routine having fun at the scenery's expense, especially in light of guests being able to ride among actual animals over at the aforementioned Animal Kingdom. Sample lines:
-->"Do you know what kind of flamingos those are? They're ''plastic'' flamingos, that's what."\\
"I wonder where this tunnel comes out... well, [[NoFourthWall we're in Disney World, so probably at a gift shop]]."\\
"Parents, don't forget your children. Forgotten children [[AndIMustScream will be taught to sing and have their feet glued to the floor of]] ''Ride/ItsASmallWorld''."\\
"Have you ever seen the backside of a waterfall? Well, I have. Day... after day... after day..." ([[TheChewToy starts to cry]])
** This routine was the inspiration and main subject matter of the Music/WeirdAlYankovic song "Skipper Dan", which is about an acting prodigy who somehow ended up running the Jungle Cruise ride as his permanent career.
** Also, at night, they'll do a parody of ''Theatre/{{Fantasmic}}''
** Some of the more recent Disney theme parks, Disney California Adventure, Walt Disney Studios Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland, have been accused of this due to opening with a limited number of attractions (the first had a lot of off-the-shelf carnival-style rides and clones of shows and rides from the Florida Disney World complex, and many Disney park signatures like ''Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' and ''Splash Mountain'' haven't yet made it to Hong Kong) but a full contingent of shops and restaurants -- i.e., you pay to get in, and then there's not much to do that doesn't require more money.
* In some of the Ride/UniversalStudios attractions:
** The queue line for ''WesternAnimation/ShrekFourD'' advertises a place called "Dulocland", which is shown to be a money-grubbing Disneyland parody. In particular, one of its marketed attractions is "Fairy Tale Adventure" - an experience that's said to consist of "74 gift shops and 1 ride".
** Krustyland from ''Ride/TheSimpsonsRide'' is a poorly-put together theme park designed to shake as much money out of its customers' pockets as possible.
* Warner Bros. Movie World in Australia, is just a minor step up from being this.
* Lagoon, in Farmington, Utah. Their old wooden coaster is still THE big attraction, there's a large carnival-midway area, and they do have a flying ride similar to Dumbo. There are a couple of modern inversion rides, but they seem to exist solely to justify the existence of [[TheMerch the gift shop]].
* If [[http://www.themeparkreview.com/japan2004/nara1.htm this site]] is any indication, Nara Dreamland in Japan played this trope straight as an arrow before closing down in 2006 and subsequently becoming an AbandonedArea [[http://www.michaeljohngrist.com/2010/09/nara-dreamland-japans-last-abandoned-theme-park/ occasionally scouted by urban explorers]]. Monorail? Check. Theming that looks like they bought it from Disney's surplus warehouse? Check. Rides that are even cheaper knockoffs of their Disney counterparts than a Creator/DingoPictures film, and others that are completely out of place? Check and [[CheckPlease check, please]]!
* The Singapore Zoo is not even a theme park, and yet this is in full force. It's hard to turn anywhere and not see a stand or proper store selling stuffed toy animals, and there are themed restaurants and souvenir photo opportunities aplenty. Not to mention "Ah Meng" everything -- Ah Meng being the late orangutan mascot of the zoo.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', the Demon Pirate Lechuck converts Monkey Island into "The Carnival of the Damned" as part of his scheme to recruit unknowing pirates into his undead army (since the first thing a sailor on shore leave is ever looking for is, of course, a family-oriented theme park). In the endgame, Guybrush is transformed into a seven-year-old version of himself and has to deal with rigged carnival games, corrupt mascots in costume and a snow-cone stand attendee with unnerving armpit hair.
* In ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Ace Attorney Investigations]]'', the Gatewater Hotel chain of the earlier games has now become a far larger corporation, opening its own theme park called 'Gatewater Land'. It contains a haunted house and western-themed area along with an artificial lake where parkgoers [[spoiler: including a certain [[EasterEgg blue-suited, pointy-haired lawyer and his friends]]]] can go boating. Since it's partially funded by the police, it also has the Blue Badger and company as its mascots, and finding out exactly who is in all those badger suits is a large part of the third case.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Backyard S|ports}}kateboarding'', there is Shark Belly Shores, which is a theme park with two big rides: the Kooky Kraken (a rollercoaster which ends at a bench) and a carousel. There is also a water wheel and half-pipes for skating.
* ''VideoGame/RollerCoasterTycoon'' lets you build one of these. Since the game relies entirely on the numeric excitement ratings of individual rides to judge how well guests like them, you can more or less get away with it.
* Ryan Amusements in ''VideoGame/{{BioShock 2}}''. There is exactly one ride, a Haunted Mansion style ride that's purportedly designed to [[ScareEmStraight scare kids into never wanting to leave Rapture]], but consists entirely of a series of Objectivist lectures, illustrated with exaggerated animatronic scenes. The rest of the park consists of a "Hall of the Future" that has all of three scenes and forces guests to backtrack to get out, a gift shop that either has been thoroughly looted or carries a paltry amount of merchandise, and a restaurant. Granted, it's still exactly the right size for a single level in a ''[=BioShock=]'' game, which is what mattered, but there aren't even any of the usual blocked-off passageways to give it a sense of originally being bigger.
* ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'' Atomic Edition has Babeland, which includes all three types of rides mentioned above in various stages of completion. And pretty much nothing else either.
* VideoGame/BanjoTooie has Witchyworld, a decrepit, unsafe theme park known for terrible sanitation, bribing authorities, and employing pickpockets. Oddly enough, Boggy's family still thinks it's a pretty awesome place.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'':
** Uncle P's Antiques once sold an item that gave players a map to the Magic Commune, an amusement park owned and operated by hippies. It features such attractions as Freegans of the Mysterious Island, Mary Jane's Wild Ride, and the Electric Lemonade Acid Parade.
** The Mr. Store item for April 2015 offered access to [[BlandNameProduct Dinseylandfill]], a [[ElementalRockPaperScissors stench-aligned]] zone that's a combination amusement park and landfill. Tacky ''and'' disgusting!

[[folder:Web Video]]
* Tiger Balm Garden in ''WebVideo/VaguelyRecallingJoJo'' is also called Polnaland. The workers there even have Polnareff's signature hairstyle. Dio, Giorno and Diavolo are seen in the background, having a good time at Polnaland.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' - Strong Bad imagines one of these, called "Strong Bad's Mount [=RidesPlace=]! USA" in the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail104.html "theme park"]]. Since he can't afford to build it, he settles for "The Strong Badian Riverquest Safariventure", a Jungle Cruise clone ''so'' pathetic, it just takes place in a cardboard box on a small puddle of water with Strong Bad giving lifeless commentary.
-->'''Strong Bad:''' Don't forget to experience the fury of... our gift shop.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'': Happy World Land [[ZigzaggingTrope is indecisive]]. On the one hand, some of it looks rather cool; it's home to one of the only arguable ''[[HilariousInHindsight precognitive]]'' parodies of an actual ride currently found at Walt Disney World. On the other hand, as the park's anthem puts it:
-->''Welcome to a land where the fun never stops.''\\
''We have six thrill rides and four hundred gift shops...''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has had several over the course of its [[LongRunners long life]]:
** The name of Duff Gardens ("[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E13SelmasChoice Selma's Choice]]", Season 5, 1993) implies a Busch Gardens parody, but parts of it parody Disney attractions like "It's a Small World" and "The Hall of Presidents". It's also worth noting that this one is ''meant'' to be crappy, with the longest line being for the complaints booth.
** "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E4ItchyAndScratchyLand Itchy & Scratchy Land]]" (Season 4, 1993) is a straight Disneyland/Walt Disney World parody, and surprisingly thorough in spoofing real stuff at the parks in TheNineties, like Disney Dollars, the Pleasure Island adult nightclub complex at the Florida resort, and even the ''Walt Disney Story'' attraction. The episode also briefly showed "Euro Itchy & Scratchy Land" in a cutaway gag; it's completely abandoned, save for a French ticket master calling out for customers because his last paycheck bounced and his "children need wine" -- a reference to the (then-topical) disastrous early years of what is now called Disneyland Paris.
** "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS12E15HungryHungryHomer Hungry Hungry Homer]]" (Season 12, 2001) opens with a trip to Blockoland (a lampshaded {{Expy}} of Legoland), where everything is made out of "Blocko"s, including the water for the scenic boat ride.
** "I'm Goin' to Praiseland" (Season 12, 2001) had Ned Flanders opening [[TheMoralSubstitute a Christian Souvenir Land]], a parody of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heritage_USA Heritage USA]], which closed in 1989. (It may or may not also reference [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Holy_Land_Experience the Holy Land Experience]], which opened in central Florida in February '01; the episode aired in May). Within a few days it is on the verge of shutting down, as visitors are turned off by its preachiness and wholesomeness, until an apparent miracle at the park (actually the result of a gas leak) causes attendance to skyrocket.
** [=EFCOT=] ("Special Edna", Season 14, 2003) is a parody of Epcot, though the attractions parodied were pulled from an assortment of different Disney parks. It takes the "older ride parodies" to ridiculous extremes -- there's a parody of a Disneyland attraction that closed in ''1967'' (sponsored by real-life but long-defunct Eastern Airlines), and there are no parodies of attractions that ''were'' operating at the time save for ''Honey, I Shrunk the Audience'' and the ''[=IllumiNations=]'' light show. It starts looking less like a mistake and more like an intentional nostalgia trip. (At the episode's end, Homer runs off to the ''real'' Disney World.)
** Plaster Mountain, which includes "Mr Frog's Mild Ride", "ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'s Flying Cubicle" (the circling ride), and "It's A Long Line".
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' has Glove World, perhaps an obtuse reference to [[WhiteGloves Mickey Mouse's gloves]]. One episode revolves around [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick trying to work up the nerve to go to the newest roller coaster, the Fiery Fist O'Pain. Careful. [[Film/TheShawshankRedemption The last person that called that place obtuse got two months in the hole.]]
* [=EuroReptarland=] in ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis''. It does have a "face" character, the Princess.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS4E16TheCourtshipOfStewiesFather The Courtship of Stewie's Father]]" Peter took Stewie to Walt Disney World, although the writers clearly had only ever been to Disneyland. Among the mistakes in the episode: the appearance of a Pinocchio boat ride in the background that is not present at Disney World, a parody of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (which had since been replaced with a Winnie the Pooh attraction) called "Halle Berry's Wild Ride," which consists of Creator/HalleBerry committing a hit-and-run, ''Captain EO'' (with Music/MichaelJackson kidnapping a boy who commented on the 3D special effects being so real that it looks like Michael is coming right at him) was being shown (it closed at Epcot in 1994), and a chase sequence in an Indiana Jones ride (Walt Disney World only has an Indiana Jones stunt show, and that's in Disney's Hollywood Studios, NOT the Magic Kingdom).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' parodied Disneyland with "Kidney Land" in the episode where a shrunken Timmy is messing around inside Vicky's body.
** The show also had "Escalator Land" That apparently consisted of a continuous up and down line of escalators
-->'''[[OurPresidentsAreDifferent US President]]''': When do we get to the ride?\\
'''Timmy's Dad''': This ''is'' the ride! Wheee!!
** Adrenaland, where people had to be resuscitated from going on one of the rides.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain'' had the mice accompanying Elmyra on her class field trip to a Disneyland parody called Duckyland, with Brain intending to put a subliminal message on the audio at the Happy Sappy Children of Many Lands Ride. First, though, he's forced to go through some rides Elmyra wants to go on, and endures a lot of pain doing so; then, when he finally does switch the tapes on the ride, he finds out that he made a mistake in trusting Elmyra to bring the tape for him, because she instead brought a [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Baloney the Dinosaur]] tape. By the end of the episode, he says that even world domination is not worth it for him "to come back to this Hieronymus Bosch-inspired nightmare world."
** Before Elmyra joined in, Pinky is at one point tempted by Snowball to leave the Brain. The bait was Pinkyworld, a theme park contained inside a corporate headquarters. Of course, this is mouse-sized...
** Pinky's apparently a sucker for these. "Brain Noir" has Billie use one of these to try and win his heart; it was originally meant as just an innocent device to aid Brain in taking over the world.
* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' had Moose-World. Likewise, there were theme parks located in California, Florida, and Hong Kong. Sound familiar?
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' has Brisby Land, which fits the characteristics of the Disney Theme Parks, [[spoiler:although with more sinister dealings and being a subject of ire to displaced revolutionaries]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has Luna Park ("The happiest place orbiting Earth") and Past-O-Rama. The former includes a boat ride about whalers... on the moon, the ridiculousness of which is pointed out on the ride's song.
---> ''We're whalers on the moon/We carry a harpoon/But there ain't no whales/So we tell tall tales/And sing our whalin' tune''
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' has Dinoland which pops up now and then. A sort of run-down amusement park with one episode revolving completely around Arnold and Eugene getting stuck on one of the rides.
* The roadside attraction that captures the title character of ''WesternAnimation/GetMuggsy'' seems to be an extreme example of this. No rides are seen, just animals in cages and souvenir stands.
* The ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' cartoon had Fun World, which had the standard rides and even offered souvenir rings. [[spoiler: That were used to brainwash people to think like robots]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'': As part of a nefarious scheme to brainwash tourists into becoming his slaves, the [[EnemyMime evil mime]] Jazz Hands opens "Mime World" on a remote tropical island (perhaps as a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/JurassicPark''). One of the most popular attractions there is the "Mime Petting Zoo," with little animals performing mime routines with white makeup and lipstick smeared on their faces. (Yes, it's every bit as creepy as it sounds.)
* A [[WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle Fractured Fairy Tale]] had a take on "Sleeping Beauty" with the prince--a loose caricature of Walt Disney--choosing to not wake Sleeping Beauty with a kiss but to market her and the castle as a tourist attraction, souvenirs and all.
