Disney’s Splash Mountain Ride To Be “Re-Imagined” With “Princess And The Frog” Look

One of the most popular rides in Disney history is getting a makeover.

Just announced yesterday, the Splash Mountain ride at both Disneyland and Disney World will be redesigned to feature characters from its animated movie “The Princess and the Frog.”

According to Disney, the project has been in the works for a year and follows the company’s approach to “plussing” or retheming attractions to better the experience of guests.

Earlier this year, a petition was circulated asking Disney to rename the ride because of the racial stereotypes from the film it is based upon. “Song of the South.”

More than 20,000 people signed the petition.

Disney did not give a date for the re-imagination, but noted that “conceptual design work is well underway.”
