I know about all of the tributes at Disneyland, but is this something that's done at all Disney parks?
Well not the Rainbow Mine Train Caverns. However in EVERY ride Disney builds you will find tributes and jokes about past attractions, the Imagineers that work on the ride. For example- Mission Space- Realativly new ride. In the queue the logo of the beloved attraction it replaced- Horizons
-is in the middle of the space centrifuge theming. Now even though Mission space is only 6 years old, Star Tours- The Adventures continue- actually makes a reference to it in the Hoth scene, and for that matter all the scenes have a reference to either the past ride or to Star Wars.
A lot of the theming found in the parks (espically if it has names on it) is an Imagineer/Engineers name usually. Its one of the many things that just makes Disney even better
