Is it true that Tokyo DL is opposed to retheming their Splash to PatF? I thought they were opposed to paying for a retheme.
We don't really know what's happening with Tokyo. The original announcement said nothing about that version of the ride. We do know that it's not Disney's call, but it's all rumors and speculation as to what's specifically happening behind the scenes. The ride has continued to operate since TDL opened back in July.
I also can't get the original Parks blog post to load now, either by searching or trying the link on WDW Splash's Mountain's official page, but any other one on the blog works for me.
