Well they can insert some tribute to him. I don't have an issue with that.

I, too, am outraged by Disney's plans. Despite Disneyland and Disney World being places of magic and imagination, I refuse to suspend my disbelief enough to allow an unspecified tribute to a character from a fictional country. It's just not realistic.

Now hold my magic wand while I get my picture taken with a 6 foot tall talking duck.

I'd be more upset if Song of the South wasn't boring. Had a genuine curiosity in the film and its a snoozefest.

Rebranding Tower of Terror to Guardians of the Galaxy was way worse and that's coming from somebody who really likes GotG

Before Splash Mountain closes, fans can buy some light-up ears to remember the ride.

Disney Parks has announced that they are going to speed up the process of re-theming the ride. If they are then guests at Disney World must have very little time left to go on the ride. Maybe they won't even get to say farewell to it when Disneyland re-opens.

Jess Harnell, the voice of Brer Rabbit for Splash Mountain, shared his thoughts on the ride getting a retheme.

I'm sorry to see it go, because I loved it. It was an honor to be involved, and I'm happy I had that chance. But I don't want to be a part of anything that makes anybody hurt.

People should stop giving snowflakes everything they desire.
So what if someone found something offensive about it?

I can find offense in anything if I look hard enough.

Disney doesn't have to retire Song of The South, as it is already irrelevant.
They just want to push some modern merch. Nobody looks to Disneyland as a historical time capsule.

Here's what Carmen Smith, executive creative development and inclusion strategies for Walt Disney Imagineering, had to say about the re-theme.

Quote:
“My work is really about collaboration and teamwork. You create experiences that will make people feel welcome, seen and heard and to let them know their stories are just as important. My responsibility is to look at what do we have now and does it resonate with our Guests and making them more reflective of the world we live in.

When we looked at Splash Mountain, it gives our company an opportunity to showcase our first African-American Princess. We need to be able to tell stories that are inspiring and enlightening but also that speak to a community that has not been well-represented in our Parks and Resorts.”

A Disney World fan is tired of the park being so woke and retheming rides like 'Splash Mountain'.

I love Disney World, but the wokeness is ruining the experience

Disgruntled Fan Blasts Disney World For Changing Rides, Says Wokeness Is Ruining His Favorite Attractions; Hollywood Responds

The person in this video from Septemeber 2020 thinks that Disney Parks beginning to plan the Splash Mountain retheme to The Princess and the Frog probably didn't happen in 2019 like the press release stated or just after George Floyd's murder. He thinks it's possible that since Disney at first thought The Princess and the Frog was going to be this mega success and start a new renaissance as The Little Mermaid did that this idea was first pitched about a decade ago. However, while the movie did begin a string of critically acclaimed movies for the main animation studio, it wasn't worth putting the money into the idea at the time since the film was not a blockbuster hit like they thought it would be. 5:55 to 6:12
