Recently, Splash Mountain has been the controversial center of attention. As fans wonder when Disneyland Park’s version of the attraction will close, rumors have begun flying around. But things are not always what they appear…
By now, it’s old news that each American Disney Park is saying goodbye to Splash Mountain. It was announced in 2020 that Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort would be retheming the classic log flume ride.
In Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, the Imagineers have already begun the process of dismantling Splash Mountain, retheming it into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. The attraction officially closed in January, and Walt Disney Imagineering has been working ever since.
In Disneyland Park, however, Splash Mountain hasn’t been touched. Not only that, but Disney hasn’t even announced a closing date yet.
If you’ve recently heard that Critter Country’s Splash Mountain ride is closing in May, you’re not alone. One of the rumors recently made some headway, and many fans believed that the closing date had finally been revealed.
However, theme park reporter Scott Gustin has debunked those rumors, stating that they’re untrue. He also goes a step further, assuring everyone, “There’s no confirmed closing date at this time.”

At this time, Critter Country’s laughing place is still safe. That being said, a closure is coming sooner rather than later. So if you’d like to experience this classic log flume before its retheme takes place, now’s the time to head to Disneyland Park!
