The Mountains of Magic Kingdom – 24 Facts & Secrets

15 – The attraction is based on a movie that Disney has since tried to distance themselves from.

Have you ever heard of or seen “Song of the South”?  If you haven’t you won’t be able to find this one in stores and will have to look for a copy from another country.  This movie received a lot of bad press over the years for being a racially offensive movie to African Americans with various considered to be racist slurs.  The ride is the only reminder left of the movie that Disney has kept going.  The ride doesn’t include any of the controversial issues and just focused on one of the stories that Uncle Remus tells.


Hi! I’m Kristin, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. We vacationed at Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what maked more sense was just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way.
