Since we never were given a closing date, either previously, or a newly delayed closing date, then the claim that the closing date keeps getting delayed is incoherent. There was never a commitment to any time frame except the newly announced opening date for TBA.I think he meant closing date.
The queue at MK is indeed longer, more richly themed, and transports you before the ride even begins in a way that Disneyland's does not. Unfortunately, it is one of the places where WDW's Pirates has had a noticeable decline over its lifespan, but it is still also the place where a Disneylander would likely be most impressed by the Florida Pirates. Even having lost some of its richness, the WDW Pirates Queue is still worthy of envy.I heard the queue is a lot better at MK. To me I think that should add some points to MKs version.
Technically we are about 2 years past its the closing date considering how racist and problematic the ride is. It should have been shuttered immediately .Since we never were given a closing date, either previously, or a newly delayed closing date, then the claim that the closing date keeps getting delayed is incoherent.

We riot if it closes before i get there this summer lol.I have no idea if this actually happened I do know that Disney would absolutely announce an opening date with absolutely zero intention of actually hitting it. Everything you saw/heard last weekend was a knee jerk response to Anika Noni Rose's 2024 claim. All of it. They had no prior plans of making any Splash Mountain announcements this past weekend.
So, I would consider the late 2024 date to be basically nonsense. That being said, expect the attraction to close after the winter holidays. If they are actually serious about it, it would be closing at the end of August and we'd have a closing date.
I can maybe see a very short-notice announcement just to confirm that the ride is gone for good. Maybe a "Splash Mountain to permanently close next week!" type of announcment.An unannounced closing would not surprise me in this case. If they are truly trying to avoid any attention on the existing attraction at all, that would be the way to do it.
