Disney announced earlier this year that the guest-favorite attraction Splash Mountain will be reimagined to a Princess and the Frog themed ride. Today we found out that Disney plans to fast track that reimagining.
Today, Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, spoke at the IAAPA Expo Virtual Education Conference. One key note included in his speech was that the reimagining of Splash Mountain has been expedited.
“We believe that truly inclusive environment is critical to fostering ideas from all people to help us grow, innovate, and create the best stories possible,” D’Amaro said.
The reimagining of Splash Mountain has been expedited to ensure that all who visit Disney’s parks do feel welcome as well.
“In the world that we find ourselves in today, optimism, innovation, and courage, they will ultimately win the day,” D’Amaro said. “With the emboldened spirit that comes from the challenges of the COVID crisis, with the hope and optimism that our brand captures even in the toughest of times, let’s ask ourselves why not take our guests to the moon or bring the moon to our guests? Why not dream as big as possible? And challenge the very meaning of the word impossible.”
D’Amaro also spoke about the other new attractions and entertainment coming to the Disney parks. You can see all of the information here and check out the video below:
