Disney's Splash Mountain ride to be rethemed to The Princess and the Frog



The project has been in the works for a year, though of course, no word on when they'll actually get started. The attraction at both parks will be redone.

“With this longstanding history of updating attractions and adding new magic, the retheming of Splash Mountain is of particular importance today,” Disney said in a statement. “The new concept is inclusive – one that all of our guests can connect with and be inspired by, and it speaks to the diversity of the millions of people who visit our parks each year.”

Splash Mountain is based on "Song of the South", the movie with Uncle Remus singing about how great it is to be a slave. Now they're replacing it with the only black character who isn't Frozone in their Animated Canon, Princess Tiana.

No word on when the white racists will boycott  spending 3000$ per person per day at a theme park and not go.
