Fun Find Friday

January 18, 2013

Location: Adventureland, Magic Kingdom

Hot dogs, baseball, and Disney. These are considered by many to be some of the most American things ever. So naturally, while walking around the Magic Kingdom you can see Disney proudly flying the stars and stripes up and down Main Street, USA, Liberty Square, and Frontierland. However, the American Flag isn't the only country flag flown in the Magic Kingdom.

Sure, over in Fantasyland you have some flags which appear to belong to other countries, but in reality were created specifically for the storyline that is occurring in the area. Let's head over to Adventureland to go find our flag!

Swiss Family Treehouse

Back in 1960, Disney created one of their most engaging life action films of all time, Swiss Family Robinson. The story? A family moving to a new country becomes shipwrecked on an island. Using the material from the damaged boat and on the island, they create a treehouse on the island. Here they have several adventures with pirates, animals, and a whole lot more. However, the key word in this entire paragraph is in the name of the film. They were in fact Swiss.

So after the family collected the debris from their wreckage, they knew that they had to show off their heritage by flying the flag above the entrance to their new home. So next time you are in Adventureland, take a look at the only country flag in the Magic Kingdom that doesn't belong to the United States of America:
