* CulturalAdaptation: While the ride was discussed for premiering at Disneyland Paris' Walt Disney Studios Park, its concept was finally adapted into a stage show/movie mix called Cinémagique, where a man from the audience (Creator/MartinShort) interrupts the projection and is brought in by a magician from a silent movie. He then falls in love with one of its characters (a French actress played by Creator/JulieDelpy) but then they are forced to flee through movie sets spawning all eras of film. The reason for the change was budget issues, stage shows being more popular with French guests and the chance to feature animated characters and French film snippets.

* ReferenceOverdosed: ''Big time''. We could list all of the movies that are shown in the finale montage of the ride, but it would overwhelm the page pretty quickly. The 2015 update added in even ''more'' movie references by making the queue line video into a documentary that talks about all kinds of films from various genres and filling the queue line itself up with digital movie posters that constantly change every few seconds, showcasing posters for films like ''Film/TheExorcist'', ''Film/{{JAWS}}'', ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', ''Film/CitizenKane'', ''Film/PulpFiction'', ''Film/{{Titanic}}'', and so on.

** The tour guide stating, "Ready when you are, C.B.!", is not referring to the control booth as many people think, but is rather referring to the famous film director, Creator/CecilBDeMille, as there's a hidden photograph of him on a catwalk that's behind the riders.


The update turned out to be short-lived, however, as after a 28-year run, the attraction was permanently closed on August 13, 2017 with its replacement being a very large-scale ride based on the current [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013 Mickey Mouse]] shorts, titled ''Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway'', which is set to open in 2019.
