So far, Disney has begun work on Jungle Cruise in Disney World and Disneyland, but there has been NO word on when the Splash Mountain refurbishment might begin. Instead, the ride has continued to operate as normal, with no changes to the scenes or signs of work being done just yet. So, we’re pulling together everything that we know for ya, to see just when the Splash Mountain retheming might begin!
Splash Mountain has been a pretty big deal recently!
Disney announced last year that Splash Mountain will be undergoing a BIG update, retheming it to be based on The Princess and the Frog. We know that this refurb has been fast-tracked, but we’re not sure WHEN it will kick-off! Well, we spotted what MIGHT be a hint today!
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.
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the latest news for you this week. Today we have all the details on what’s happening that affects the Disney Parks, hotels, and MORE!
