32. The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Hercules is admittedly my favorite Disney film, and if I had my way, they'd have a whole area dedicated to the movie. That's never going to happen, because Hercules is somehow unpopular. I had no idea until a few years ago, but Hercules has a lot of detractors. Some people really hate this movie, and that really puzzles me. That lack of appreciation for a classic Disney film has led to yet another under-representation at the Disney Parks. Hercules had its own parade at Hollywood Studios in 1997 when the movie came out, but unfortunately that sort of exposure wasn't going to last. Today, Hercules, Hades, Pain, Panic, and Megara are meet and greet characters, though only rarely. Hades perhaps has the most exposure, like Frollo and the other villains just because they have shows and events planned around them. It's good to be a villain! Besides a little representation at Fantasmic!, Hercules is sadly vacant from the parks. From what I've read online, people really want to see this movie at the parks. It's not super popular still, but there is a sizable group of people who would love to see an attraction dedicated to our favorite Greek mythological character.
36. Fantasia 2000
38. Emperor's New Groove
Emperor's New Groove is the funniest Disney film ever made, and that isn't up for discussion. It's definitely one of my favorites, and the best of the 2000's in my opinion. I think there is a lot of opportunity for this movie in the parks, but I don't think its popular enough. The closest thing this movie has to a ride is Raging Spirits, a roller coaster at DisneySea Tokyo. While not themed on the movie, the architecture is based off of Kuzco's Incan kingdom. Kuzco, Kronk, and Yzma were all meet and greet characters for a little while after the movie premiered, but have since either been retired or are extremely rare. Kuzco's human form made its debut at Disneyland Paris in 2013 as part of the Disney Dreamers Everywhere! events. His Llama form, along with Yzma and Kronk were even brought back out for the event. The only other representation I could find was Kronk hosting the interactive paint station section in the post-show area of The Magic of Disney Animation at Hollywood Studios. I remember going to The Magic of Disney Animation in 2000 and seeing a whole section of the tour dedicated to the production of this movie. We even got to see a small clip of the film. I'm sure they do this with every new film, but for some reason that memory sticks with me.
39. Atlantis: The Lost Empire
40. Lilo and Stitch
Lilo and Stitch is probably the most represented at the Disney Parks of all the 2000's films. Stitch is a very bankable character and is seen all over the various Parks. The rest of the characters aren't seen as much, so hope you like Stitch! Lilo does make a few appearances, namely in Disneyland Paris' Stars 'n' Cars parade, and in the shows Fantasmic! and World of Color. Both Lilo and Stitch are in Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland's It's a Small World. Stitch has his own ride, though it has almost unanimously been voted the worst ride in all of Disney: Stitch's Great Escape! in Walt Disney World. The ride replaced ExtraTERRORestrial: Alien Encounter, which was considered by many to be the scariest ride at any of the Disney Parks. You were strapped in while the ride made it seem like the alien was roaming around the room scaring everyone. People loved the ride, but some complained it was far too scary for kids, and for some, Disney equals kid-friendly. When Lilo and Stitch came out in 2002, Disney decided this was a perfect opportunity to give one of their recent movies a ride. In 2004, the ride opened, and people hated it! Same kind of ride, but its just Stitch burping chili dog in your face. I'll admit that I've never ridden any incarnation of this ride. I was far too scared to ride the Alien ride, even though I was probably too old to be at the time. Tower of Terror was another ride I was just terrified far too late in life. To my credit, I have always hated drop rides, so it wasn't really the theming as much as the drop. If people hate this ride so much, why doesn't Disney get rid of it? Probably the biggest reason is merchandising. The ride empties right into a gift shop and that shop sells tons of Stitch merch. As long as kids want a plush of a lovable blue alien, that ride will still be around. Stitch has another ride, this time in Tokyo Disneyland, called The Enchanted Tiki Room: Stitch Presents Aloha e Komo Mai! I had actually never heard of this version of The Enchanted Tiki Room, but I'll have to watch a video of it. Stitch Encounter at Hong Kong Disneyland and Stitch Live! at Disneyland Paris is a show a lot like Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. You sit in a theater, and though it's a video on the screen, it interacts with audience participation. I've experienced Laugh Floor, and it's really cool, so I can only assume these are about the same. Stitch is all over the place, so if you like the character, then you'll be happy no matter which Disney Park you decide to go to. The only other one I can think of is the huge statue on top of World of Disney at the Disney Boardwalk at Disney World. The reason I remember this one so fondly is because it spits water at you, just like the camel at the Magic Carpets.
