You were lucky you didn't get sued.
It's not as simple as you think. You admittedly used copy-righted materials (sounds, names). What if you used the sounds and names for say, the haunted mansion, but your map/model was crappy and made people hate the attraction? Disney would have a valid point sueing you because based on your illegal use of copy-righted material you damaged thier reputation (or brand).
