The Cosmic Age Lodge used in the movie is now demolished. It was on Harbor Boulevard just south of the Disneyland entrance and north of Katella. Now part of Cars Land sits where the motel stood. Before the Disneyland area was drastically changed and the "Space Race" was in it's heyday, Harbor Boulevard had a lot of "Space Age" themed motels, as well as "Character" themed motels/hotels such as "The Peter Pan Lodge".

When Brian's friends see him on a bike instead of his skateboard, they joke about how he'll be riding around on a scooter next. In The Legend of Billie Jean (1985), Christian Slater played a character whose most prized possession was a scooter.
