Note: This is not a thread for discussing Epic Mickey in general.
Warren Spector has stated that virtually everything you see in the game was taken from or influenced by something from Disney mythology. Even things as mundane as barrels can apparently be traced back to old Disney cartoons.
In one of his interviews, Warren suggested that Disney fans make a game out of trying to find all the little references. I say we do it! Who's with me?!
_________ SPOILER WARNING!
If you want to try and figure things out for yourself, or you don't want to see pictures of things before you play the game, don't look any further!
This area's obviously based off of Main Street, but it also has elements of DCA's Hollywood Backlot (the trompe l'oeil city backdrops in particular) .
This appears to be a nod to the Gibson Girls' Ice Cream Parlor and the Main Street Penny Arcade. There's a gremlin and a black and white creature in front of the building.
The Partners Statue in front of the castle. Notice anything different about it?
The giant guitar may be a reference to Rock 'N Rollercoaster. There's also a giant toy block off to the side which may be from Toy Story Midway Mania. Rock 'N Rollercoaster and Midway Mania are both from the Hollywood Studios park in Florida.
This area is part of Mickeyjunk Mountain, a location that is filled with Mickey Mouse merchandise.
Small world, clearly. I wonder what Mary Blaire would have thought of all this?
The Small World hippo. This hippo lacks the flowers on the original model in Small World.
It looks like Oswald's in the England section
of Gremlin Village.
Based off of Adventureland, as you've probably already guessed. I'm not sure if the tiki heads are from anything, though.
Probably based off the Rocket To The Moon attraction, with the surrounding area possibly influenced by Alien Encounter and Lilo & Stitch.
A Space Mountain-like structure. While all of the 'real' Space Mountains are white, this one has been given a Tron-esque paint job.
This looks like Pete in a Tron-style outfit.
When Disneyland's PeopleMover was still in use, one of the tunnels was given a Tron-themed overlay for a time.
Trolley Troubles, starring Oswald
Mickey's car + guns from Lilo & Stitch + Hades from Hercules = Beetlworx
