Disney is preparing for the closure of Splash Mountain and opening of a brand new Princess and the Frog attraction. To prepare for this reimagining, more elements have been removed.

Back in June of last year, Disney announced that a major reimagining of Splash Mountain would happen. This attraction, based on the controversial 1946 film “Song Of the South,” has been a fan favorite since it debuted in 1989.

The attraction will begin where the film leaves off; with the final kiss.  We’ll join Princess Tiana and her trumpet playing alligator friend Louis “on a musical adventure.”

Disney recently shared that this process will take some time, but they are making great progress on music, characters, and stories. You can read that interview HERE.

They also shared some new artwork for the attraction! In the concept art, you can see Tiana, Naveen, and Louis in their boats traveling along the bayou. It definitely looks like this will be an easy transition with what is currently Splash Mountain with the various scenes and drops.

While Disney has kept many of the details under wraps, they have slowly been preparing Magic Kingdom for the transition.

Disney has recently removed the song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” from the Magic Kingdom welcome show.

Additionally, the bronze Br’er Rabbit statue has been removed from the Hub. In case you have never noticed before, there are little character statues scattered around.

Characters like Mickey, Pinocchio, Goofy, Pluto, and more greet Guests as they head on to the next attraction.
