• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • When designing The Haunted Mansion, Walt Disney originally wanted to place it on Main Street USA. Which is based on his hometown.
    • This one isn't too bad- Walt just thought that most small American towns would have a ramshackle mansion that the local kids would refer to as haunted. It's a joking act of nostalgia.
    • Maybe this is more obvious than it was for me, but in the Stretching Room, the Ghost Host says that there are no windows and no doors, which means there's no way out... "Of course, there's always my way." Just then, the room goes dark and a body is seen hanging above the ceiling. I didn't realize this until later, but that's HIS BODY. HE HUNG HIMSELF. THAT WAS HIS WAY OUT.
      • This troper thought "his way" was the secret exit that opens a minute later until thier last trip to Disneyland
    • Pleasure Island, a nightlife section of Walt Disney World, is named for the island in Pinnocchio where naughty boys are turned into donkeys and then supposedly worked to death.
  • When things start to become a little chaotic on Universal Studios' Jurassic Park ride, you pass a boat just like the one you're riding in. It's empty, except for a carnivorous Dilophosaurus with a shred of clothing in its mouth. So, the implication here seems to be that the men, women, and children in that tour boat were VICIOUSLY DEVOURED. See also, Nightmare Fuel.
  • In the Disney ride "Star Tours", Topless Robot raises some important questions here.
