Opening date March 4, 1972
Replaced Indian Village from Frontierland
Renamed from Bear Country (1988)

The area now known as Critter Country was first called the Indian Village and featured Native American shows and attractions, including the Indian War Canoes. Opened on March 4, 1972, it was a land themed to the forests of the Pacific Northwest. It was home to the new Country Bear Jamboree. Bear Country was renamed to Critter Country in 1988 in anticipation of Splash Mountain's January 1989 opening. In 2003, the Country Bear Jamboree was replaced by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Critter Country is also home to the Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes.

On roofs of buildings, for example the Briar Patch Store, there are small-scale critter houses of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. Random types of trees have been planted to create a foresty atmosphere. Critter Country is somewhat small when compared to Disneyland's larger lands. This westernmost area features a single pathway that wraps around the footprint of Splash Mountain, starting near the Haunted Mansion and terminating in a series of shops nestled against the Splash Mountain show building.

Opening date 1992

When Splash Mountain opened at Tokyo Disneyland, Critter Country was specifically created for it. The only other attraction in this area is Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes (formerly Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes in Westernland). Because of the land's small size and the popularity of Splash Mountain, Critter Country is extremely crowded throughout the day. The Country Bear Jamboree is located in Westernland.
