Discussing favorite Disney classics can easily lead to a debate regarding which childhood-making animated feature is the very best. Luckily, a new infographic has broken down the most popular Disney animated films by state.

This new graphic from CableTV.com reveals the favorite Disney film for each state. The results saw 18 different Disney films represented across the country. See what your state’s favorite is below:

CableTV also shared some fun facts from their findings:

  • We love animals—38 states favored a film with an animal protagonist.
  • With the support of 17 states, The Lion King (1994) is America’s favorite Disney classic, hands down.
  • Dumbo (1941) is beloved by New York, which was known for the elephant walk through Manhattan, a tradition that lasted over thirty years. While the event garnered mixed feelings from residents and tourists, it certainly left its mark in NYC.
  • Nearly 71 percent of Vermont households own a pet, so it makes sense that Vermont loves 101 Dalmatians (1961). But funnily enough, Vermont has more cat-owning households than dog-owning households.
  • With the most wilderness of any state, Alaska’s respect for wildlife reflects in its favorite movie Bambi (1942).
  • The trippy Alice in Wonderland (1951) is a big deal in New Mexico, which happens to be the only state where you can legally grow magic mushrooms (psilocybin-containing mushrooms).
  • Over 57% of Hawaiian residents identify as Asian American, so it’s no surprise that Mulan (1998) is a favorite for the Aloha State.
  • The Beehive State, with the youngest average population in the US, had a fourteen-way tie for its top Disney classic. No other state but Utah had a tie for its favorite movie.

Their results weren’t limited to the U.S. They also surveyed Canada:

To get their results, CableTV used Google Trends data to analyze which films U.S. states and Canadian territories were showing interest in over the past five years.

    No states favored Peter Pan or Jungle Book? Shocking. Also surprised that Hawaii did not go with either Lilo and Stitch or Moana.
