Splash Mountain To Be Rethemed To Princess and the Frog

Disney announces that Splash Mountain will get a new theme, and the new attraction will be based on the Princess and the Frog.


Splash Mountain - one of my favourite Magic Kingdom attractions - is getting a new theme. There have been many petitions in the past to change the theme of the ride, but there has been more focus on it recently due to the recent protests in the USA and around the world. The reason for the controversy surrounding Splash Mountain is because it's based on a 1946 Disney movie called Song Of The South, which is criticised for its' handling of race.

Disney has announced that they are going to change the Splash Mountain theme to "Princess and the Frog".

Today we are thrilled to share a first glimpse of a project Imagineers have been working on since last year. Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined. The theme is inspired by an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.

Tiana is a modern, courageous, and empowered woman, who pursues her dreams and never loses sight of what’s really important. It’s a great story with a strong lead character, set against the backdrop of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou. In 1966, Walt himself opened New Orleans Square when it became the first new “land” added to Disneyland park, so it feels natural to link the story and the incredible music of “The Princess and the Frog” to our parks.
