Can someone please explain why Pixar attractions such as Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blaster, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, Turtle Talk with Crush, and, now, Toy Story Midway Mania have the particular and very prominent wording of...
"Inspired by Disney - Pixar"
I don't understand especially since Pixar has been adopted into the Disney Family?
I don't recall Roger Rabbit Car Toon's Spin having a sign on the side that says "Inspired by Disney - Spielberg?" Then, there's Star Tours with its "Brought to you by the Creative Forces of Lucas and Disney." But these characters aren't wholly owned by The Walt Disney Company.
Is their some fine wording in the receipt dictating Pixar must be credited in everything Disney does with its characters? It's featured in the disneyland.com website, Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure maps, and, even on the merchandise.
Me no likey.
