Alright, calm down, I have no new information. No need to panic!
This might get long, so turn back now if you’re worried about where I might be going with this.
Now, obviously everyone agrees that Splash Mountain is the best attraction in all of WDW if not the whole world. It is an undisputed fact. I understand the reasoning behind re-theming it,and I don’t want to debate the merits of that decision here. I know another thread went into that quite a bit a while back. What I want to talk about is the decision to give it a Princess and the Frog theme. I have no problems with that movie, although I don’t get the connection between New Orleans and a waterfall. But I digress. Anywho, as I was driving the kids to see my inlaws this morning, we were playing a guess the song game with Disney songs. There was one movie that had songs keep popping up that were fantastic: Moana. I think it would have been a great choice for Splash Mountain! Water is a huge part of the movie. The music is AMAZING! The biggest problem I see is that it would need to somehow become part of Adventureland since it doesn’t fit with Frontierland (not that PatF fits anyway). But at least a mountain makes sense in the Moana story. There’s barely even hills around New Orleans!
I can just picture a big finale scene with Maui singing You’re Welcome!
Okay, that’s it, go about your business. Nothing to see here.
