Yet another Disneyland attraction has started to undergo a change to reflect modern cultural expectations: Roger Rabbits Car Toon Spin. In Disneyland’s Toon Town, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin remains one of the few attractions to reopen after the pandemic.

Guests began to notice some changes to the ride, namely the removal of a kidnapping scene where the evil weasels cram Jessica Rabbit into the trunk of a vehicle.

The Orange County Register reports that Disneyland aims to update the attraction with a modern spin on the story. Now, the bombshell Ms. Rabbit acts as a private investigator herself rather than the damsel in distress.

Jessica Rabbit has determined it is past time for her to throw her fedora in the ring by starting her own private investigation service. Watch out weasels, your reign of terror is over.

By now, you’ve likely heard about updates to Disney’s Jungle Cruise ride at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Disney imagineers have also announced plans for a retheming of Splash Mountain for both parks, which will change to a Princess and the Frog ride.

Disney pledges to continue to update attractions containing culturally insensitive elements and to reflect the ever changing times.

Pirates of the Caribbean was changed a few years ago in order to remove a human trafficking scene, where pirates auctioned off “wenches” as brides.

Walt Disney once said, “Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future.” Do you agree? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.

  1. Totally agree with Kay. Disney, leave things alone! I’m tired of companies changing things that haven’t offended anyone, because they MIGHT offend someone, while ultimately offending nearly everyone.

  2. Disney, unfortunately, has gone stupid. Why would we continue our 30 year run of passholder status in order to be insulted? Uh…no more.

  3. Soon we will see “Mickey Mouse” sized mouse traps throughout the parks to keep up Health Laws regarding Rodents and Food Service.p

  4. I agree! They took away all the excitment of some of the rides, and made them boring. I just returned from Disnet World and was very disappointed. They took away fast pass as part of your ticket, but renamed and and is charging you now is you want to add it to your ticket. I miss the old Disney.

  5. This isn’t about the future, it’s about erasing the past. I would think the Disney corporation should focus a bit more on what the majority of it’s customers clearly don’t want, and that’s paying for fast passes and getting up at 7 am for a relaxing vacation that costs thousands just to pay more for a chance to ride and ride. They really need to focus on making more magic and experiences, and less about politically correct overhauls. I’m glad I got to enjoy Disney while it was still fun. I’m glad I’m not so easily offended by cartoon characters that needed help. I mean should have Rapunzel made a deal with Flynn for help? I mean she clearly felt like she needed his help to navigate the world outside. Should the mice have given Cinderella a key to get out? Or should they have thought, she’s a young woman with intelligence and drive. Clearly she can devise her own escape plan. Should the Prince have kissed Sleeping Beauty? It’s all so absurd!

  6. I’m not a fan of changing the rides. The changes to Pirates were unnecessary. We shouldn’t ‘paper over’ things just because they become sensitive to an ultra-minority. History is history. The wench scene wasn’t hurting anyone. At least I have a video of the original ride.
