Critter Country is where you can meet your favorite forest creatures. Inspired by the national parks of the American Northwest, Critter Country is a cartoonier counterpart to Disney California Adventure’s Grizzly Peak. Originally home to the Country Bears (and originally called “Bear Country”), Critter Country was born in 1989 when the creatures from Splash Mountain took up residence in the area.
Critter Country will be undergoing some upheaval soon, with the arrival of Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog. There are rumors that Critter Country will be annexed into New Orleans Square. No one knows for sure what will happen, so it will be interesting to see how this sleepy little corner of Disneyland will be transformed in the next two years.
