Map of where all Disney movies have taken place

Disney Map by theantilove

This is a fan made map by someone named TheAntiLove and it details where all the Disney movies through history have taken place.

In the true Disney spirit, people are attacking TheAntiLove for a flawed map because screw him (or her…or singing crab) for taking the time to create a fun map of the origins of our childhood favorites. Oh and also, ALL THESE STORIES ARE FICTIONAL! So just relax internet or there will be no Disney Christmas this year okay? Alright then.

For those of you who are curious how these theories were conceived, TheAntiLove gives some explination:

The Little Mermaid: Caribbean

Although the author and original story are Danish, the wildlife is clearly tropical. There is simply no way to have that type of flora and fauna anywhere near Denmark. It is very reasonable that The Little Mermaid movie could take place on the Danish colony, now known as the US Virgin Islands.(thanks so /u/theflyingbarney) Another big clue is the fact that in the beginning of the movie the storm is referred to as a “Hurricane.” Something Europeans knew very little about. (thanks to /u/Cheesecakejedi).

The Incredibles: Chicago

My logic for The Incredibles is based mainly on the design of the city. The city definitely does not have a West Coast or Midwestern feel, and my top two choices where either Chicago or NYC. I went with Chicago based on the following comparisons:
The elevated trains: Where it is true that NYC has elevated trains, Chicago is much more well known for them and the style of the ones in The Incredibles reflects the Chicago style.
The streets: a definite Chicago feel, Chicago has a much more industrial feel to the city streets.

Toy Story: Small Ohio town

The idea here was to place the Toy Story movies near Chagrin Fall, Ohio which is the popular theory for where they are located. It is based on the idea that it is the home town of Lee Unkrich (co-director of several Toy Story movies), and there is a Go Tigers sticker in Andy’s room. (The mascot for Unkrich’s high school). The weather is also consistent with Ohio in that they get a heavy blanket of snow at/around Christmas.

Cinderella: France

When they revamped It’s A Small World, Cinderella was placed in France (next to the Cancan dancers and Eiffel Tower) with Jacques and Gus. Also, one of the new Mickey shorts takes place in France and at one point we see Cinderella. (thanks to /u/rustylime)

Fox and the Hound: Northern US/Canada

Although the feel of the movie definitely seems Appalachian, there are simply no Grizzly Bears in Appalachia, which would put the movie more north.

Atlantis: Mediterranean

The movie never explicitly states where the Atlantis they are heading for is. The best approximation would be the more historically proposed location which would be in the Mediterranean Sea. A common misconception with this location is that it should be Iceland; however Iceland is the location of the Shepard’s Journal, not Atlantis itself.

So there you have it. Perfect logic. Now let’s all argue about how Pinocchio’s transformation into a real boy should have actually involved a leprechaun.
