Disney Map by theantilove Disney Map by theantilove

All rights reserved to Disney/Pixar. They own all the characters and stories portrayed and this is just fan work done inspired by their work. I am not making any money off of this, I am only a humble and devoted fan. These are only small thumbnails and do not harm the original media. Thanks ^_^


I'm working on trying to get to everyone's comments and questions as quickly as I can! I'm a firm believer in peer review and I want my map to reflect the most accurate and up-to-date information possible. And if possible leave me a link of where you found my map, I'd love to see where everyone's coming from. :)


Please feel free to comment and ask questions. Please read through my explanations first before criticizing. My criteria was based on the following priorities:
FIRST: Movie was placed based on the location IMPLIED IN THE DISNEY/PIXAR VERSION
SECOND: If the movie was too vague to determine a location, the original story/myth was consulted. 
This map portrays 48 full length Disney animated features and 10 Pixar animated features (counting all 3 Toy Storys as one, and both Monsters movies as one) and their respective locations on earth:

NORTH AMERICA
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 theDanish 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)
Brother Bear: Northern Canada, Alaska.
    The people in the movie are cast as Inuits, who inhabit both northern Canada and Alaska.
Meet the Robinsons: US/Canada.
    Lewis mentions being from Canada but the tone of the family seems like they are American.
Bambi: Northern US/Canada.
    Though originally a German story, the collection of animals clearly indicates North American wildlife. [from the bambi wiki] ""Disney took the liberty of changing Bambi's species into a white-tailed deer from his original species of roe deer, since roe deer do not inhabit the United States, and the white-tailed deer is more familiar to Americans.""
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.
Chicken Little:US
    Generally Midwestern American feel (corn fields are present) but no specifics given
Home on the Range:Western US
    The movie takes place on a cattle ranch with several noticeable arch formations shown throughout.
Lady and the Tramp: North Eastern US
Small town America feel. Shown celebrating Fourth of July. A song sung in the beginning of the squeal puts the movie in New England.
A Bug's Life: Texas/Mexico Border
    Due to the rainy season present in the movie and flight the grasshoppers take to summer in Mexico puts the movie close to  the New Mexico/Texas southern border.
Icabod Crane: Sleepy Hollow
    Explicitly stated
Oliver and Company: New York City, US
    Explicitly stated
Pocahontas: Virginia, US
    Explicitly stated
Incredibles: Midwest/Chicago, US
    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: The Incredibles vs Chicago 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: The Incredibles vs Chicago Again, a definite Chicago feel, Chicago has a much more industrial feel to the city streets. City Profile/Water Front: The Incredibles vs Chicago I think this one speaks for itself. Parks/Foliage: The Incredibles vs Chicago
. In response to the Emeryville idea. The city is referenced twice: 1. The street names are real Emeryville street names 2. When Hellen activates the GPS in Bob's suit the GPS zooms in on the San Fran area. So it's impossible for it to be both his home town and where Syndrome's secret hideout it. Especially given the long plane ride they must take to get there.
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.
Big Hero 6: San Franokyo
    Explicitly Stated
Bolt: Hollywood
    Explicitly stated
Cars: Arizona, US
    Radiator Springs is found on Route 66, significantly East of Los Angeles, which would put it somewhere in Arizona.
Lilo and Stitch:Hawaii, US
    Explicitly stated
Princess and the Frog: New Orleans, US
    Explicitly stated
The Rescuers:New Orleans/ Bayou, US
    Explicitly stated
Dumbo: Florida, US
    Where he is "born" and a bulk of the movie takes place
 
SOUTH AMERICA 
Emperor's New Groove: Peru
    Explicitly stated
Up: Venezuela
    Explicitly stated
Three Caballeros: Mexico, Brazil and Argentina
    Explicitly stated
 
EUROPE
Robin Hood: England
    Explicitly stated
The Great Mouse Detective: London, England
    Explicitly stated
Sword and the Stone: England
    Explicitly stated
Winnie the Pooh: England
    Although the real life bear that Winnie the Pooh is based on is from Canada, the books are actually set in Ashdown Forest, Sussex, England.
Alice in Wonderland: England
    Although never explicitly stated in the movie, the writer was Englishman Lewis Carroll.
The Adventures of Mr. Toad: England
    Explicitly stated
Black Cauldron: Mythological Wales
    The author, Lloyd Alexander, was inspired by Welsh mythology.
101 Dalmatians: London, England
    Explicitly stated
Peter Pan: London, England
    Explicitly stated
Cars 2:England
    The last and big part of the movie is set in England.
Brave: Scotland
    Explicitly stated
Snow White: Germany
    The movie is not explicit enough to definitively decide its location, so the original work of the Brothers Grimm puts it in Germany.
Sleeping Beauty: France
    This movie is based on the Charles Perrault version of this story, there is an abundance of fleur de lis, and the French national anthem is played to announce the arrival of Princess Aruroa. (thanks to /u/DrRegularAffection)
Pinocchio: Italy
    An Italian story and they are near mountains by the sea.
Tangled: Germany
    The movie is not explicit enough to definitively decide its location, so the original work of the Brothers Grimm puts it in Germany.
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. Video Relevant @ 2:35. Also, one of the new Mickey shorts takes place in France and at one point we see Cinderella. (thanks to /u/rustylime)
Hunchback of Notre Dame: Paris
    Explicitly stated
Beauty and the Beast: France
    Explicitly stated
Aristocats: France
    Explicitly stated
Ratatouille: Paris, France
    Explicitly stated
Hercules: Greece
    Explicitly stated
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.
Frozen: Norway
    The presence of Norwegian architecture, art and landscapes (namely mountains and fjords) put in the movie in Norway.
 
AFRICA
Tarzan: Nigeria/Gabon
    Although never explicitly stated, due to the wildlife and the proximity to the coast, the movie would have to take place in either Nigeria or Gabon.
Lion King: Kenya/Tanzania
    The location of Mt Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti are located here.
 
ASIA
Jungle Book: India
    Explicitly stated
Mulan: China
    Explicitly stated
Aladdin: Saudi Arabia/Iran
    Explicitly stated
 
AUSTRALIA
Rescuers Down Under: Australia
    Explicitly stated
Finding Nemo: Great Barrier Reef
    Explicitly stated
 
OTHER
Dinosaur: Pangea
Treasure Planet: Alternate Universe
Wreck-It Ralph: Cyberspace
    Although the arcade has a location in the real world, the characters live in cyberspace, which is an alternate universe to ours.
Monsters Inc.: Alternate Universe
Wall-E: Future Earth/Space

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is The Little Mermaid in the Caribbean, and Atlantis in the Mediterranean?
    Read the description again, I'm more than open to critiques.
Where is Anastasia, American Tale, Balto, Prince of Egypt, Megamind etc?
    Sorry, they aren't Disney/Pixar movies.
Where are Mary Poppins, Song of the South, Pete's Dragon etc?
    Although these are all Disney movies with animation, they are not fully animated movies.
Why is there no love for Russia or New Zealand?
    Sorry, not my fault! Email Disney about it :P
Why no love for Canada?
    Canada actually has two movies! They share Brother Bear and Fox and the Hound with the US.

Where is Big Hero 6?
    Once I see the movie, I'll make an assesment and put it on the map!

I am trying to get to everyone's comments! I'm going through them all trying to answer them. But I do love some of the great observations you guys make. Thanks!!!

Wouldn't Big Hero 6 technically fall under the "Other" category? I'm thinking of how it's set in a sort of alternate universe, specifically.

It was even made by Marvel since Stan lee created Big Hero 6 and since Disney bought Marvel, that's the reason why the movie was made. You might not know this, but............back in 2003, Disney bought Power Rangers from Haim Saban and the first Power Rangers series done by Disney was Ninja Storm, then it lead to Dino Thunder which marked the return of former Power Rangers actor Jason David Frank to return as Tommy Oliver, then to the next series S.P.D which meant Space Patrol Delta, then up to that point was Mystic Storm, Operation Overdrive marked the return of some of the previous rangers and two of them were the Green Mystic Force Ranger from the previous series and the second black ranger from the second season of Power Rangers, after Operation Overdrive was Jungle Fury and RPM, in 2010, the original Power Rangers Series was released reversioned on ABC Kids during the same year Haim Saban bought it back.

So you see, the place where Angelgrove was reality is actually San Francisco, that's a really freaky coincidence to me since San Fransokyo was also San Francisco.

The possibilities are endless, now that I think about it, if the two series had a crossover since Marvel also did a comic series for Power Rangers, then it would be awesome to see, I know Marvel also did comics for Transformers and they also had a crossover with Spider-Man, and G.I. Joe, but Power Rangers?! That's Something to I'd like to see.

If you had a crazy crossover with your two favorite series, what would they be, and why?

The movie is called Song of the South. I believe that since the entire movie was not animated, the creator of this map decided to leave it out. It should be located somewhere in the US though, possibly in the south. 

My theory is confirmed read FAQ's

If you haven't already been corrected on it, Dinosaur's setting (latest Cretaceous) postdates Pangaea by ~135 million years. Pangaea was more of a Permian through Triassic phase, back before dinosaurs were even the dominant megafauna on earth.

The only thing I dislike about Pocahontas is how inaccurate the account is. Pocahontas didn't fall in love with what's-his-face, she married some other guy and went to England with him, had a kid, and died a few months later.

Yay, Virginia history classes.
My state has so much history...

I`m pretty sure The Fox and The Hound takes place somewhere in the sout-east,possibly Alabama,yes there are no grizzlies there,but Disney never did care too much about such accuracies considering they showed moose and grizzlies in Pocahontas witch takes place in Virginia.

  Moose and Grizzlies were in Virginia during Pocahontas' time, they were hunted by a majority of the indians, mostly in the Piedmont Region.

There were no grizzlies east of the Missouri river after the ice age,and Virginia was bellow even the most southern moose populations even back then.
