News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - Tiana's Bayou Adventure

I think the problem is that when you type up "Splash Mountain" on Google, one of the top results is "Splash Mountain Racist."

I think Disney in the future doesn't want people to be thinking AT ALL about Song of the South, so they want to remove all ties to the name of an iconic ride that was themed after Song of the South.
I was not being serious and edited to reflect my sense of humor. Sorry... though the other time I said it people laughed so I thought I'd share.

@przidentkendall had some solid suggestions on a recent episode:
  • Tiana's Bayou Falls
  • Mardi Gras Mountain
  • Tiana's Bayou Splash
As a break from the previous theme, "splash" and "mountain" are right out. Especially 'mountain.' It didn't make sense to call it 'mountain' the first time around.

"Falls" is problematic if the new ride has no falls. For all we know, the story of the chute could be a giant wave and not because of falling down anything. If the descent is a one-time thing in the story of the ride... then there are no falls.

Tiana = The protagonist is upfront and center, which is the intention of choosing her. Using "Princess and the Frog" in the title would be way too much considering people think TBA is already too much.​
Bayou = In place of "splash" indicating it's a wet ride, we have "bayou" indicating it's a wet ride. This is also place-setting (albeit, more important for DL than MK).​
Adventure = It's a ride. A thrilling one because of the drop. It's not Tiana's slow boat ride. It's not Tiana's restaurant or a Tiana M&G.​

The concern over the title is full of high drama despite being relatively unimportant. Is this what we can be looking forward to for the next two years. That all those who didn't want a retheme will be picking apart minutiae? To what end? Convince WDW to scrap the retheme? That ain't gonna happen.

Screens *can* be fine. But, to me, you lose an important dimension to it all. Our brains perceptively register you’re watching a screen, and keeps you from fully buying in to the experience. At some point, why not just watch ride videos?

Would that be the same group discussing and debating the font and graphics of the ride signs? Seesh…
