Splash Mountain was originally based on the film, Song of the South which was released back in 1946.

It was a controversial film set on a Southern plantation after the Civil War that many viewers say glorified plantation slavery and included Black stereotypes.

Although numerous petitions have been going around to re-theme the ride, Disney says they’ve been working on the design since last year.

Are you excited for the new Splash Mountain redesign?
