Because the past is irrelevant to the present. Henry Ford was an anti-semite and nazi sympathizer (a true fact. Unlike the false claims about Walt) And yet I don’t see Ford changing their company name and I’ve known two Jewish families that strictly drive ford cars. Imagine that.You are missing my point. If you know something has a racist past - no matter how much they cleaned it up... why keep it?
I’m with you and I think it’s probably the right move. It just impacts my Personal desire to go. I’m not gonna go spend money on something when I don’t get as much enjoyment out of it.I don’t why I expected more from some people who use this site. For some, your bigotry is shining like the second star to the right. You’re offended/mad/(fill in the blank) about a ride!?
Nostalgia is a part of the problem that keeps the country from moving forward. Feeling like its owed to you for a company you don’t run to keep things the way they were “back in the day” despite it offending somebody. Yes we give them our money and that means something but if you don’t like it don’t ride or just stop visiting. But they way some of you downplay the affects these type of things have on people is the true disgusting part. I really hope this thread gets closed...
They probably would, because the 1989 Magic Kingdom had more interesting stuff to see and do than the current Magic Kingdom. Not even talking about the rides, but all of the really neat stuff that's been eliminated in the past couple of decades like the unique, themed stores.
Somebody should educate themselves on reconstruction.They were after emancipation. You are making up things or refusing to "believe" something if you think otherwise.
Also, please tell us all exactly what was "racist" about the Song of the South movie? I'd like the opportunity to refute your points.
If planned for over a year, how come this was just refurbished?
And to those saying it needed an update and we can't expect people to visit a park with old attractions....I dunno about your visits, but every time I've been Splash has huge lines and is always extremely popular.
Is it too much to expect anything from Splash to be left, like the characters or ANYTHING? Or will they act like it never existed?
At least they can't take away our memories. Not yet anyway! I'm so so happy I created a scrapbook to always look back on.
Look, I may fall in love with this new theme, could be one of the absolute best attractions in the park. But it cuts deep to know it had to come at the loss of something so deeply integrated in Disney park culture.
It’s about a fix and a bear after a rabbit? Why are you discussing skin colour? The attraction makes no reference to human characters from the film? And if people were against it the queues in 2019 said otherwise.I heartily approve, but I am not a Black person. I'd like to hear from more Black people on this.
I'm not offended. I thought you were the one offended by the announced changes?
People that say that the movie is racist have never seen it, they just read some article from a site or blog that was made to gain political relevance. Let´s not forget that the MAIN CAST DIDN´T THOUGHT THAT THE FILM WAS RACIST and Walt approved it.

No Space Mountain should go to! It's old! Also why just stop at painting the castle? Give us the castle re-do that HK got!We can agree to disagree. I enjoy the classics like Space Mountain as much as the next person but if Disney said it was being replaced with something new, I'd be fine with it. I enjoy all rides - old & new.
