I just saw Philip Kippel on Twitter today and he was so obsessed of trying to save Splash Mountain. And he even tried to force me to sign the petition to save Splash Mountain. Well, as much as I would love to support save Splash Mountain, but in reality, petitions don’t work. I want to tell him that, but he might attack me so I can’t find my heart to do it. Is Spalsh Mountain going to be save or is it too late? Be honest.

We've been honest. It isn't going to be 'saved.' It will be rethemed to a PatF IP. Disney's been officially announcing that more and more frequently and recently.

Splash, as we know it, will be extinct soon. I hope Philip can get to the park and get as many rides in before it closes.

Nope. Splash is done for. Sad but true

I was able to get what is almost certainly my last ride on Splash Mountain ever (at least in the states) at the end of my trip. It was the very last thing I did, boarding less than ten minutes before the park closed.

I've had the tremendous misfortune of ALWAYS getting completely drenched on Splash, so I was apprehensive about doing it that the end of the night, but that turned out to be a benefit. Since it was so late, rather than getting put in a full boat, there were only 2 other people in the vehicle with me, and as a result, I got about as wet as I wanted to!

While I'm sure there was an effect or two that wasn't working, the ride looked to be in better shape than I remember seeing it on most of my previous trips.

It has never been my favorite ride, but I'm happy that I got a last ride in, and that last ride is easily the best ride I've had on it since I was a small child. Goodbye Splash! Hopefully Tiana's version of the ride will be just as good.

...really?

Has any other attraction at a Disney park ever had its concept art put on STROLLER KEYCHAINS?
Disney stamps any IP it has on just about any tourist trap trinket you can think off.**

So the answer to your question is a very obvious 'yes.'

**But who am I to insinuate Disney constantly pushes cheap garbage merchandise, I'm just a Disney apologist after all.

There's a difference between slapping a character from WALL-E on a mug and putting concept art for an upcoming attraction retheme that they've been pushing as the most inclusive attraction Disney has ever done on something as miniscule as stroller keychains.

From giant LED billboards to tiny pins, Disney slaps IP on everything. They think putting it on a keychain is good advertising, not a way to subtly dis PatF.

How ironic that right as Splash is on the way out we find footage of Sooner or Later being used on the ride. It's from June 1989.

Wow! This is amazing! Never seen any footage of the song on the ride before but knew it was on there for a very short time. This is great quality too in terms of lighting.
