For the most part, however, most of the uproar has been caused by Guests who don’t want to see this classic Magic Kingdom attraction go, regardless of how the source material’s Uncle Remus has perpetuated stereotypes that are harmful to the African American community.

Unfortunately for them, though, the Splash Mountain ride has already closed, and Walt Disney Imagineering is working on retheming the ride into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure as we speak.

But although the Splash Mountain water has been drained and the briar patch has been dismantled by Walt Disney Imagineering, there is one place where fans can still find a remnant of this attraction.

Surprisingly, this remnant cannot be found in a Walt Disney World Resort theme park…however, it can be found on the Walt Disney World Resort transportation.

The catchy, gleeful song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” was recently removed from a Disneyland Park parade due to the offensive connotations associated with the source material.

However, this song still plays on the Disney buses as they leave Magic Kingdom Park.

It’s surprising to hear this song on something as prevalent as a Walt Disney World bus, but we can confidently say that it’ll be removed from the music played sooner rather than later.

So, if you’re a huge Splash Mountain fan looking for a remnant of this classic ride, be sure to take one of the buses the next time you’re leaving Magic Kingdom.
