Bolt – Super Dog

The animation released in Brazil under the name Bolt – Supercão does not have a fixed attraction in Disney Orlando Parks, which leaves some fans surprised, in a way. This is because the design was very well received around the world.

In turn, the film tells the story of Bolt, a dog who has super powers and fights against the villain Dr. Calico. However, the possibility of something emerging around this topic cannot be ruled out.

Valente (Brave)

Brave is a Disney film released in Brazil in 2012 and tells the story of Princess Merida and is inspired by Scottish landscapes. However, the title currently does not have attractions in any of the parks.

The production was well received by critics and its revenue exceeded 200 million dollars in its first month in theaters. But, this is yet another success that does not have a park appeal for its fans.

Brother Bear

The film Brother Bear tells the story of a young Indian who has an abnormal aversion to bears since he lost his brother in an attack by the species. In this sense, the title was released in Brazil in 2003 and was also very well received by critics.

Even with the success of the work, this is one of the films that should have attractions in the parks, but that does not have anything based on its story. However, the list doesn't stop there yet.

Enchanted

The film Encantada was released in Brazil in 2007 and tells the story of Princess Giselle, who was expelled from the castle by an evil queen. So, she decides to move and starts living in New York.

Despite being a film that had a good response and with a box office that exceeded 340 million dollars, it does not have attractions in the Disney film parks. Therefore, it is also a title that deserved a more than special attraction.

Mowgli

Last but not least, we can highlight the animation Mogli: The Bear Boy, which is still successful all over the world today. However, due to the time of its release, shows that had its theme were removed from Disney World.

The film, in turn, tells the story of a boy raised by wolves and who befriends a bear, on a journey he takes to get to know himself. Still, it was such a success that Disney released a film version with non-animated characters.

What are the characters in the Disney movies without attractions?

Some of the Disney films have attractions in full operation, although some are paused, such as the encounter with Tinker Bell, from the film Peter Pan.

Likewise, the famous Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party, with Mickey and Minnie, is also paused, with no expected return date yet.

Still, at Hollywood Studios and water parks, there are attractions closed and without confirmation of reopening, such as:

  • Voyage of the Little Mermaid;
  • Jedi Training Academy (Star Wars Saga);
