Cross Park Connections

Does the mural above look or sound familiar? It is a nifty little piece of art that resides in Disneyland's Frontierland. Look right by the Stage Door Cafe and you'll find it as the backdrop to the utensils. Quite unusual- but the name "Laod Bhang" rings a bell.

Aha! Go across the way to California Adventure, and you'll find Laod Bhang is also the owner of the local pin cart! To my knowledge, this is the first time that the Disney Imagineers have done this sort of cross park marketing in California. Can you find more? Do other examples exist?

How surprising! I'll take note of this in my upcoming trip.
