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

It's hard to say with international copyright laws. Things like music content isn't as protected as it is in the United States. Without knowledge into Chiliean laws on the subject, it's just hypotheticals and guessing games.

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 can sue if they choose to.

Then again, it might be more money to sue them (lawyers, fees, etc) than it is actually worth.

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.
