Brer Fox of the Caribbean
Here I am with Brer Fox at his favorite place to hang out at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Florida back in 1990. Yes, Brer Fox from Song of the South loved to spend the afternoon in Adventureland at the entrance of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.
In this picture, I am wearing a Splash Mountain shirt from Disneyland (which I still have). Disneyland's Splash Mountain opened at that park's Critter Country (formerly called Bear Country) in 1989.
I was absolutely obsessed with Splash Mountain, and the Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox and Brer Bear characters associated with the ride. I was very excited to get a picture with Brer Fox here.
Splash Mountain did not open at Walt Disney World in Florida in the Magic Kingdom's Frontierland until 1992, so Brer Fox felt free to roam around wherever he pleased before the attraction debuted.
You can see an animatronic parrot wearing a Pirate hat in this picture (he's under the Pirates of the Caribbean sign). He's no longer there--when the attraction was updated to tie in to the recent hit films, he was removed (he moved to the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney).
