For decades, the Splash Mountain ride was a symbol of Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World alike. Its iconic drop and whimsical setting have always been a hit with fans.
However, due to its offensive source material, it was announced during a D23 Expo that each Splash Mountain attraction in the United States would close to make way for a new ride: Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

By now, Walt Disney World’s Splash Mountain has been closed for months, and Disneyland Park’s version will soon follow at the end of this month.
Walt Disney Imagineering has begun working on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in Magic Kingdom, and we can imagine that work will begin immediately after the Splash Mountain attraction closes in Disneyland Park.

Once Disneyland Park’s Splash Mountain closes forever, it will only leave one version standing: Tokyo Disneyland’s Splash Mountain.
With no plans to close, not only is Tokyo Disneyland’s version of Splash Mountain the only one left, but it’s also recently broken a new record according to a recent report.
Just a few days ago, Tokyo Disneyland’s version of Splash Mountain just broke a new record for the longest line in the Disney Park:
