A few days ago, Splash Mountain had an Unexpected downtime and during this time, the ride was Drained.
The ride did not open that day and It’s unclear as to what the issues the attraction was having. Just like the January refurbishment, the ride was drained.
As well, according to Disney, the ride will be re-themed to Princess and the Frog.
“We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.”
“Tiana is a modern, courageous, and empowered woman, who pursues her dreams and never loses sight of what’s really important. It’s a great story with a strong lead character, set against the backdrop of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou. In 1966, Walt himself opened New Orleans Square when it became the first new “land” added to Disneyland park, so it feels natural to link the story and the incredible music of “The Princess and the Frog” to our parks.”
