Connections[]

The Disney Parks have large number of elements incorporated from Marvel Comics and the Disney owned, "Marvel Cinematic Universe". However the park variants of the Marvel universe is in a different continuity than the comics or films; intersecting with Disney Park cannon while also diverging from the histories of the aforementioned cannons (E.G. the films Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame having never occurred).[2]

Country Bear Jamboree[]

The Collector is in possession of the octopus Delores from the Country Bears Vacation Hoedown overlay of the Country Bears Jamboree. Given her inanimate state, it is likely that she is dead and preserved for the Tivan collection.

Dinoland, U.S.A[]

Chester and Hester are in possession of vintage comic-books of superheroes such as Spider-Man fighting dinosaurs.[3]

Disney films[]

  • Big Hero 6: Big Hero 6 is based on an obscure Marvel property of the same name. In the film, Fred's superhero father Frederick Frederickson III is modelled after and voiced by comic-book writer Stan Lee (1922-2018). In the continuity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Stan Lee's likeness is used to represent a cosmic entity employed by the god-like aliens The Watchers to observe Earth. It is unknown if Frederick Frederickson III shares any of this history but it is worth noting that Stan Lee makes an appearance in the attraction Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT! as part of the Collector's collection. In the MCU film Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Tony Stark is shown to be in possession of an A.I. with the label, "Tadashi" in reference to the A.I. designed by Tadashi in Big Hero 6.[4] A plushy of Baymax appears in the pre-show of Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure.

  • Toy Story: A claw-machine in W.E.B. headquarters is filled with the Little Green Men toys from Toy Story.

EPCOT[]

Howard Stark was shown in the Iron Man Experience, conversing with Walt Disney over plans for the Florida Project. The attraction Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is set in a fictionalized depiction of EPCOT which partnered up with Howard's son Tony to create the Xandarian Outpost.

Journey Into Imagination[]

Figment makes a cameo in the queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: MISSION Breakout! set within the Collector's Fortress of intergalactic artifacts. One of his containers hanging from the ceiling can be seen holding Figment within it. [5]

Maelstrom[]

The Collector possessed several artifacts pertaining to the Norse gods of Asgard. Said gods have also been represented in the defunct attraction Maelstrom in EPCOT's World Showcase.

Spaceship Earth[]

In the story of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, it is revealed that Quill went to EPCOT as a child and took a photo of himself in-front of Spaceship Earth.[6]

Haunted Mansion[]

In the pre-show video, the Collector is shown to have a miniature figure depicting the Hellhound of the Haunted Mansion.[7]

It's a Small World[]

In the Collector's office collection is the severed head from one of the dolls from the attraction It's a Small World.[8]

Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar[]

There is a non-diegetic reference to the Marvel comics character of Iron Man where a red airplane's fin has a sigil of a metal robot on it with the words, "Iron Human" underneath albeit with the H and U being blotted out by ink, making it say, "Iron Man".[9] A name tag for one, "Howard S." also appears in the bar, seemingly alluding to Iron-Man's father Howard Stark having been a patron to SEA member Jock Lindsey. A SHIELD outpost also appears in the town of Disney Springs, in the 1950s neighbourhood of West-Side.

Matterhorn Bobsleds[]

The original yeti animatronic from Matterhorn Bobsleds in in storage within the Collector's Fortress. It is unknown what the nature of this appearance is I.E. if it is intended to be an a canonical audio-animatronic/robot, a taxidermy/petrified alien which incidentally resembles the yeti, or perhaps a taxidermy yeti taken from the Matterhorn or some other ecosystem with yetis. Another theory to rationalize this is that the original yeti and current yeti are actually separate members of the same species but the original was killed/captured and obtained by the Collector.

Oceaneer Lab[]

The Super Hero Academy is a division of the Oceaneer Lab accessed via entering a book on the Super Hero Academy within the library of the Oceaneer Club aboard the RV Oceaneer Lab.

Skipper Canteen[]

In the library of the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen there is a book titled The Stars Above Us by Quill, clearly referencing Star-Lord. Given the 1930s setting of the attraction the canonicity of this book can be called into question however; possibly rationalizations being that it might have been written by a maternal relative of Star-Lord's, or that it was written by Peter but wound up in the 1930s via time-travel as featured in the attraction Cosmic Rewind.

Tomorrowland[]

ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter[]

The Collector obtained the technology for his collection from the conglomerate X-S Tech, the alien corporation from this defunct attraction. An invoice from X-S Tech and their chairman L.C. Clench can be found within the Collector's office.

Rocket to the Moon[]

Tomorrowland's mayor Tom Morrow's animatronic's head makes an appearance within the office of the Collector in his fortress. It is unclear if this is intended to canonically be Morrow's head or not.

Space Mountain[]

In the Iron Man Experience, Space Mountain makes a cameo during the flying-car demonstration. Given how the Tomorrowland of the attraction is set in Hong Kong, this particular Space Mountain would be HK Spaceport E-TKT.[10]

Submarine Voyage[]

Atantean ruins are part of the Tivan collection in the collector's fortress with a note from the Collector on having found them in Earth's ocean. This is however likely an allusion to the Marvel Comics character Namor the Submariner, Marvel's king of Atlantis.[11]

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror[]

The Hollywood Tower Hotel is referenced in the queue for Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT which replaced the attraction in California. Here, relics from the hotel including branded keys and bellhop hats can be seen in the ownership of the Collector.
