Can Disney sue the Chilean park for the use of the ride's original song?

For instance a Chiliean court could find the tune to be similar but because the song is sung in Spanish... But this is all just hypothetical and that's if Disney even tries to go after the park.

they are not going to sue over a very close replica

I would assume Disney would have a pretty good case, but where does that leave them? What monetary value to they gain from suing? I am thinking that the lawyers would cost more than their damages amount.
