Of course, the surprising thing about this is that Disneyland would appear, and be specifically referenced, in a Columbia (today, Sony) film, if even for a moment! In today’s copyright-happy world, imagine such a thing occurring between modern Disney and Sony!
Be that as it may, just remember that, if you’ve visited Disneyland between 1962 and the present day (as I have, and I’ll assume the same for many of you), we may very well have The Three Stooges to thank for that day of Disney Magic!
Bringing it all the way ‘round though, The Three Stooges might actually have Disney to thank for the inspiration behind the film’s greatest prop… and, arguably, the greatest prop the Stooges have ever had to work with…

And, before all that, in the Mickey Mouse newspaper strip of 1935 (!), we had this flying-boat-ish-submarine-y-type craft!
Looking forward to 1965 and beyond, we have the Flying Sub from VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA! My favorite fictional vehicle of all time!
