Disney continues to improve guest experiences at the theme parks through refurbishments and maintenance. Now it looks like the next major attraction to receive maintenance is Magic Kingdom’s Splash Mountain.
Disney has filed a permit through its internal construction firm, Buena Vista Construction Company. The permit is “to provide, material and/or electrical for construction.” Even though Disney plans to retheme the attraction, it seems unlikely they’ll start on that transformation anytime soon. The permit is indicating general maintenance, which is typical for the attraction during this time of the year.
Guests will continue to enjoy the current log ride attraction for 2021 at least. In the meantime, many Disney fans are eager to see the eventual retheming of the attraction.
Making way for something new helps create new memories and experiences. Having an attraction for The Princess and the Frog would help a new generation of Disney fans find joy. After all, the movie recently celebrated its 10th anniversary a few months ago and the characters are already considered great new additions to the Disney library. Seeing new visuals, animatronics, and music to delight Disney Parks fans is always good news. We’re sure the future attraction will become a new favorite for guests going on their Disney vacations!
