- Even Better Sequel: This is how many Universal enthusiasts felt towards this attraction in regards to Earthquake: The Big One.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Before working on this attraction, Matthew Walker, who plays Mikey the ride's primary host, had previously worked for Universal seventeen years prior by acting in Child's Play 3 as Major Ellis.
- The attraction was an Affectionate Parody of disaster movies built around the production of the fake movie Mutha Nature, which featured Dwayne Johnson as a heroic park ranger saving the day in the midst of an apocalyptic cataclysm hitting California. In 2015, the real disaster film San Andreas came out, starring Johnson as a heroic rescue helicopter pilot saving the day in the midst of an apocalyptic cataclysm hitting California.
- The ride that replaced Disaster! (and Beetlejuice's Graveyard Revue along with it), Fast & Furious: Supercharged, includes Dwayne Johnson as one of the characters, meaning his presence has not been removed from the area where the attraction once stood.
YMMV / Disaster!
