Mount Olympus is a major location in the 1997Disney animated film Hercules. It is a kingdom amongst the clouds above Greece where the Olympian Gods discuss important matters of mortal affairs, or just lounge around, eating ambrosia and drinking wine all day.
Mount Olympus is ruled by the mighty Zeus, King of the Gods. The episode "Hercules and the Apollo Mission" shows that the ruler of Mount Olympus is decided through vote. Mount Olympus is made entirely of clouds, not counting the mountain itself, which is solid rock. The mountain connects the kingdom to Earth, and beings can access Olympus' gates by scaling the mountain. Professionally, the kingdom is primarily used by the gods as a place to congregate and discuss the well-being Earth. Only gods can live on Mount Olympus, though other immortal beings such as the Titans or imps can bypass its gates. Though Zeus and his queen, Hera, are shown to reside on Olympus, other gods such as Poseidon and Hades are shown to rule their own domains located in different parts of the world.
