Bengal Barbecue[]

In addition to being the setting for the snake juju, Shrunken Ned is quoted on talking about the treehouse in the Daily Gnus.

Short Round's hat from Indiana Jones: Temple of Doom could be found at the display. The Daily Gnus newspaper also mentions the Adventure Trading Company having visited the Lost River Delta, the Peruvian setting of Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull. The Eye of Mara juju is also connected to the story of Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye. The temple tours of Sallah are advertised in the Daily Gnus. One of the listed recipricantt of all the jujus in the ranks of the trading company is one Henry Jones, presumably referring to Henry Jones, Sr..[1]

Jungle Cruise[]

Skipper Canteen[]

Some books in the library are written by characters of the Adventure Trading Company event. This includes Birds of Song by Tiki Kiki Serbano and Gorilla Theatre by J. Thompson Gazelle, a character from The Daily Gnuswho reviewed the gorilla raiders' performing of Hamlet.There is an additional book titled, "Traditional juju charms" by an author named MacGuffin, referencing the macguffin juju charms of the Trading Company. In the mess hall is a message from Skip Documentary saying, "I'm putting the spare key for the notice board cabinet here for safe keeping- Skip". Said key is comedically locked within the notice board. An elephant, snake, bird, and piranhahaha juju are also located within the bulletin-board of the canteen's mess-hall.[2] In the restroom is a framed edition of the Daily Gnus from the event along wth more jujus.[3]

Trader Sam's[]

The Tiki Mask juju involves Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar which is also alluded to in the Daily Gnus alongside the Disneyland Hotel. The Adventureland Trading Company character of Skip Documentary who is a skipper for the JNC is also featured in the stories of both Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar and Grog Grotto where he is a manager for the Jungle Navigation Company who oversees Sam's operations. In the normal decor of the bar is a letter addressed to Sam from the Daily Gnus asking him for an interview.[4]

Kilimanjaro Safaris[]

The Daily Gnus mentions the port of Harambe as having been visited by the Adventure Trading Company. Harambe is the setting of the Africa themed, "Land" of Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Mystic Manor[]

"The Daily Gnus" newsletter mentions Lord Henry Mystic as a noted recipient of the Elephant Juju, given for demonstrating one's tracking skills, for "assembling the largest collection of lost goods of the last century". Mystic's name also appeared first on a list of adventurers that ran the Trading Company with Mystic Point having been a previous location for the company.

Pirates of the Caribbean[]

One mission took guests to the Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer Island where a sign was put up saying, "Seek W. Turner".[5]

Swiss Family Treehouse[]

The Treehouse Juju's design is modelled after the Swiss Family Robinson's treehouse from the films rather than Tarzan's treehouse in the parks, inferring a potential connection between the Trading Company and Robinson clan.
