Location: Fort Wilderness and Campground

One of the most overlooked areas on Walt Disney World property is the movie area at Fort Wilderness and Campground. The area features a sing-a-long with Chip and Dale at night followed by a Disney film.

If you recall, during the film, Doc Terminus arrives into Passamaquoddy and gets overly excited when he discovers a dragon is in the town since it will help him create even more ointments which in turn will bring him more money. While the signs are a slight reference to the film, it's when the cover of the wagon falls down that the most obvious shows itself:
