Scenes in the last act of this film were filmed along the beach and swamp areas of Bay Lake on the Walt Disney World property in Florida. The dock, which flanks the former Discovery/Treasure Island, still exists. See more »

Yes, this is the only Disney film to feature the Klu Klux Klan.
But, horrible racist morons aside, this film can be very enjoyable if you remember seeing it as a child. I remember my father taking me to see this in the theatre when I was very young, and, now that he's no longer with us, it an opportunity to relive some childhood magic. Even if it's just for a moment.
Peter Ustinov is wonderful as always.
And the opening theme music is very cheesy but COOL in a silly 70's sort of way.
If you enjoy the vibe of Disney films like "Child of Glass", you'll probably dig this one too.
