Many things have been changing around Disney World lately.
We’ve seen resort rooms get makeovers, the return of fireworks, and many rides go back to normal operations. However, one thing that hasn’t really returned to the parks are the shows. Many are no longer take place or are modified, while others will be returning soon after long closures. The full “Let the Magic Begin” welcome show has not returned to the Magic Kingdom yet. But, each morning, the music is played in Magic Kingdom as guests enter the park. And now, the music of the show has also been altered.
Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah has been removed from the Welcome Show in Magic Kingdom.

Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah is the song that plays at the end of Splash Mountain, which will be receiving a Princess and the Frog makeover soon to be more inclusive.
Disney said of the reimagining that it will be, “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.”
With the ride changing, it’s no surprise that music from the attraction is also being phased out of the parks. The song was removed from the background music in Disneyland and the Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah-Day game was removed from the Disney Parks Play app last August. We’ll keep an eye out for other changes around Disney World, so stay tuned to DFB for more.
