The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)
Dave's drawing on bus window alludes to Kong on top of the Empire State Building
Mickey's sorcerer's hat from Fantasia appears.
Dave cursed the brooms, brushes and other cleaning stuffs to clean the laboratory, like Merlin did in the Sword in the Stone, also by Disney.
After Horvath uses his magic on the operator, Drake says "These aren't the droids you're looking for."
Part of Dave's training, like Luke's on Dagobah, is to use his powers to lift his master into the air.
Dave looks around and rubs his cheeks before taking the nesting doll from the mantle in front of the fireplace. Alfred Molina (Horvath) plays Satipo in Raiders.
When Dave is looking around the Arcana Cabana when he is ten, he sees a black lamp that looks like Jafar's Lamp from Disney's Aladdin. He even tries to rub it before he knocks everything over.
Line "who are you, Braveheart?"
Buzz Lightyear action figure in Dave's room.
Nicolas Cage's character in this film makes the same type of joke when Dave first puts on the ring as when he reaches into the eagle crevasse in National Treasure: Book of Secrets
Mentioned as an upcoming remake of the Fantasia segment of the same name.

When Nicky Calhoun asks, "So you're a wizard now?" this is a reference to Jay Baruchel's earlier role as a sorcerer's apprentice.
When the brief story of Balthazar's search for the Prime Merlinian is described, you see a shot of Balthazar walking in an African setting. (Approx 3:40min into the film). That shot is taken from the movie "Baraka" (1992) and Balthazar is edited into that shot. In short: The scene at 3:40min in the Sorcerers Apprentice is the copied/edited shot from "Baraka" at 30:27min.
