Buckle up Disney fans, a brand new attraction has been announced for The Happiest Place on Earth. After recent concerns over racist tropes depicted in Disney’s classic Splash Mountain, a Princess and the Frog theme will officially reimagine the Song of the South ride. The new attraction will be implemented into both Disneyland California and Walt Disney World Orlando.\nThe Disney Parks Blog announced today that the transformation of Splash Mountain into a Princess and the Frog theme has been in the works since last year.\nThe musical ride will pick up after “the final kiss” and guests will join Tiana and Louis as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.\n“As Imagineers, we have a deep passion for evolving our parks with new ideas and relevant stories that guests from all over the world can enjoy,” read a post on the official Disney Imagineers Instagram. “And we want these stories to reflect and celebrate the diversity of our world infused with Disney magic.”\nThe post included a concept image to give viewers a sneak peek into the minds of the park's Imagineers.\nEarlier this month, a petition cropped up calling for the removal of racist themes from the classic ride’s references to the 1946 film Song of the South.\nView this post on Instagram As Imagineers, we have a deep passion for evolving our parks with new ideas and relevant stories that guests from all over the world can enjoy.
