PHOTOS, VIDEO: Plunge Down Splash Mountain Before Retheme at Disneyland Park Reopening

Splash Mountain has reopened along Disneyland Park! We’ve decided to take the plunge today and say hello to an attraction that is set to get a retheme to The Princess and the Frog in an effort to become more inclusive and “represent transformative cultural change”.

Even though this is a log flume ride and Guests may get wet, Guests must keep their masks on at all times.

A splash landing will stay upon the retheme. The retheme will only include the removal of the Song of the South characters and music.

Rest easy, Br’er Rabbit. Soon we’ll say goodbye to the Laughin’ Place and start to “Dig a little Deeper” with Princess Tiana!
