Disney made the announcement. That appeased the twitter mob. The twitter mob must move on as they are busy cancelling folks. After a while when the twitter mob notices it's not done yet, Disney will simply say it is delayed due to the pandemic.I mean, what's the worst that's going to happen? It trends on twitter for a day? People cancel trips they never booked to begin with?
The ride continues to operate on a daily basis on both coasts and people keep coming to the parks. Splash has never stopped them.
There's a huge mental disconnect between the online discourse surrounding the ride and what actually happens at the parks.
Folks will continue to make trips to the park to ride Splash for the "last" time.
The Ebay pirates continue to buy loads of Splash merch to re sell.
Disney wins. Disney always wins...
