    Disney's Fantasia began production as a short called The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Because of the effort & costs, the Disney brothers realized that they could never make their costs back if they released it as a short. It was decided that a "Concert Feature" should be made.

    A small almost imperceptible detail in the Great Movie Ride gives historical significance to one scene. The license plate '021-429' gives the date of the ST Valentines Day massacre.
