You’ve heard the big news about Splash Mountain, right? Earlier this year, it was announced that this iconic attraction would be undergoing a retheme into a Princess and the Frog-inspired attraction.
Disney has been gearing up for this change already with restocks of the suddenly-high-demand Splash Mountain merch and the removal of “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” from the background music in Disneyland. Now, it looks like Disney might have taken one more step towards the closure of the current version of Splash Mountain.
The Play Disney Parks app features fun games, trivia, and achievements inspired by the Disney parks. A few months ago, a new Splash Mountain game launched called Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah-Day. Now that game has disappeared from the app’s options.
Now, when you look over at Frontierland in Magic Kingdom or Critter Country in Disneyland, you’ll notice that the only Splash Mountain option available is a little star icon which means guests can get an achievement for riding the attraction. No game here!
As you can see, the only option on the menu for Splash Mountain is to earn an achievement. It seems that Disney has phased out the new game just four months after its launch.
We’re not sure how long we’ll be able to ride Splash Mountain in its current form so stay tuned to DFB for all of the updates! Soon, it might be bye-bye briar patch and hellooooo bayou!
