    I searched and was surprised that there are no lists of movies and what attraction they inspired on the disboard. I found many people asking what movies the kids should watch before going.

    So here are the rules. List a movie and the attraction in WDW associated with it. It must be a movie not a TV show. You can list attractions that have been closed like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

    I'll start:

    Movie Attraction
    Aladdin.....................................................Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    Snow White and the Seven Dwarves..............Snow White's Scare Adventure
    Toy Story.................................................Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    Toy Story.................................................Toy Story Mania
    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea......................20,000 Leagues

    Wow I did not know that Disney made a movie in 2000 called Dinosaur.
    The ride opened in 1998 so did they make the movie from the ride?

    Dinosaur was one of the Disney/Pixar movies. The ride, Countdown to Extinction, was given a new name when the movie came out.

    I thought of a few more:
    Gran Fiesta Tour (Mexico)....Three Caballeros
    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh....The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

    And then if you want to branch out to Disneyland (after all, Disneyland has a few unique rides):
    Mr Toad's Wild Ride....The Wind in the Willows (formerly at MK as well)
    Pinocchio's Daring Journey....Pinocchio
    Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin....Roger Rabbit
    Tarzan's Treehouse....Tarzan
    Sleeping Beauty Castle Walk-Through...Sleeping Beauty

    Technically, you can include Pirates in there as well, since the addition of Jack Sparrow, Barbossa and Davy Jones.

    I was wondering when someone would mention Pirates.

    Are there any attractions that come from Bambi???

    I never realized before that Prince Charming is a two timer! Prince Charming was with Snow White and Cinderella!

    There is an Alice in Wonderland ride in Disneyland as well. I'm not sure of the ride's actual title.

    Here's some more:

    Movie to attaction:
    • Honey I Shrunk the Kids -- "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" play-area in DHS.
    • Not exactly sure this one counts, but there's the Pincchio Village Haus Restaurant in WDW based, of course, on the architecture of "Pinnochio"
    Inspired the "other way" - attraction -> media
    • The Haunted Mansion -- "The Haunted Mansion" (2003 - movie with Eddie Murphy)

    Just a quick note about "Dinosaur" (2000) -- that was Disney, alone ... no Pixar involvement. In the ride, the lead character from the movie, Aladar, is the big dino at the end, he's standing up and keeping the huge rock/tree from crushing you just before you escape the meteor into the "time tunnel." He's later seen on the video walking around the halls of the Dino Institute, just before you exit the jeep ... so you know he didn't get killed by the meteor after saving your life! :)

    Prince Charming is not actually a 'two-timer': The romantic lead is 'The Prince' in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and 'Prince Charming' in Cinderella.

    Ah see I did a search on IMDB for Prince Charming and they list Snow White's prince as Prince AKA Prince Charming. If you look at the case for Snow White it only lists the character as Prince.

    Maybe he is the artist formally know as........ Never mind, bad joke.:laughing:

    Yes, Disneyland has the following:

    Alice in Wonderland attraction & Mad Tea Party attraction based on "Alice in Wonderland."

    King Arthur Carrousel in Fantasyland, although the pictures on the carrousel feature scenes from Sleeping Beauty, Arthur was a character from "The Sword in the Stone"

    At DCA, The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure (Voyage of The Little Mermaid) and the King Triton's Carrousel are based "The Little Mermaid".

    :tinker: Here's one that very few people know: The Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction at Disneyland is based on the Disney live action film "Third Man on the Mountain".

    :snooty: Oh, and I don't know if this counts, but The Jungle Cruise was inspired by Disney's True Life Adventure "The African Lion" and, you guessed it, the Hepburn/Bogart film "The African Queen"!
