Big time Yes for me. Not for the ideological reasons, but I just can't muster any emotion towards Brer Rabbit. As much as I love the actual ride and the set pieces are elaborate, I have no real connection with the characters.
That's pretty much it. Splash Mountain is a cute, fun ride with some thrilling moments and laughs but is technically a terrible fit for Frontierland. Always has been. Even in DL, a New Orleans theme will be more complementary to that corner of the park.
