Splash Mountain, the popular water log ride staple at Disneyland will be “completely reimagined” and will soon be themed after “The Princess and the Frog”, a 2009 film featuring Disney’s first black princess.
The ride has been based off a controversial 1946 film called “Song of the South” and thousands of people have signed a petition to get the ride changed. The upcoming changes will be implemented at both Disneyland Park in California and Magic Kingdom in Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort.
This news comes a day after Disney announced that the reopening of the Disneyland Resort in California has been postponed and will not open on July 17th as planned. The resort has been closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
