    the Log Ride inspired Splash Mountain, while the Calico Mine Ride inspired Indiana Jones Adventure.


    Big Thunder Mountain was inspired by Calico Mine ride.

    Mystery Lodge was designed by former Imagineers

    Walt Disney and Walter Knott were good friends



    If you want to hear about more connections that Disney and Knotts have you should really listen to the Season Pass Podcast Knotts preserves episode.

    Part 1

    Part 2


    Tony Baxter is in it and talks about his connections to Knotts.

    Never hearing a peep doesn't mean it wasn't happening behind the scenes. A lot of times Disney has their team dream up possibilities just to get a visual on how it would happen if they were to go through with it.

    Same as their interest with Harry Potter, Disney's America park in Virginia, Port Disney Long Beach, etc. Some are just more publicized than others.
