* Doubles as Funny too, but in 1956, Walt Disney, Ken Anderson and set designer Emile Kuri slipped into Sleeping Beauty Castle to figure out the plans for a proposed Sleeping Beauty walk-through. When they got inside the Castle, they found that almost a hundred feral cats had made the space inside the Castle their home, which then resulted in the three covered in fleas! The Heartwarming bit is that, despite the recommendations to call in an exterminator, Walt arranged for the bathing and grooming of the "Castle Cats" and even found families for them!


** Disney Legend; Ron Logan remembers attending the Magic Sky Way, with Walt Disney, at the 1964 - 1965 World's Fair. Despite being offered the V I P Entrance, Walt Disney insisted in waiting in line, with every one else, with the line itself being two hours long!?

* At Main Street Disneyland many of the buildings have a second floor that looks like it might be little more than a facade. Maybe just window dressing and nothing much behind them. But in one of those second floor windows there is a light from a lamp. If you ask some of the cast members around about the light in the window above the firehouse, they might tell you that in the upper floor of that building Walt Disney had a small and very private apartment built where he enjoyed watching people visiting the park. The lamp is kept lit in those rooms (which are kept practically unchanged)to symbolize his spirit and his dream staying alive.

** In 2003, the Negativland sound collage radio show ''Over the Edge'' did a show on Music/{{Eminem}} at his most uncensored, vile and hateful. Producer Don Joyce subsequently apologized to listeners for a "toxic" show. His (mostly) non-ironic antidote was "[[https://archive.org/details/OTE_20031009_A_Nice_Trip_to_Disneyland A Nice Trip to Disneyland]]", using music, sound effects and voice acting (including outtakes) from classic rides and shows including the entire Carousel of Progress.

* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4qMqbL9ACo Disneyland Paris commercial from Christmas 2018]] tells the story of a duckling who stumbles upon a Disney comic book and dreams of being just like his hero Donald Duck, set to "[[Theatre/ManOfLaMancha The Impossible Dream]]". When the flock migrates, he is unable to take the comic with them and they end up huddling in the bushes during a storm. When morning comes, the baby duck emerges to see Sleeping Beauty Castle and Donald Duck standing over him in HolyBacklight inviting him in for a hug.
