Disney World’s Splash Mountain closes for good, paving way for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

Walt Disney World’s Splash Mountain transported its very last fans Sunday, as the ride closes for good after 30 years in Magic Kingdom. In operation since 1992, Splash Mountain has more recently garnered increasing complaints due to its ties to the controversial film Song of the South. Objections like those included in this Change.org petition have noted the 1946 film’s racist stereotypes and idyllic depictions of plantation life.
