As we previously shared, Splash Mountain is getting a makeover. However, it seems it’s gonna take a little bit longer than expected at the Disneyland Resort, according to a new report by OC Register.

The news first broke last year that Splash Mountain would be getting a makeover into a “Princess and the Frog” theme to replace the current ride’s story based on the controversial 1940s Disney movie “Song of the South.” And according to Disneyland officials, the reimagineering process is still only in development and will take some time with the depth of work necessary to create the new attraction.

The announcement for this ride overlay came in June 2020 and as of yet there is still no official opening day for the new attraction. Additionally, it’s worth noting that both ride’s at Walt Disney World and Disneyland are still fully operational as Splash Mountain and have not yet been closed to begin construction.

As Disney diligently works towards the completion of the re-imagined Splash Mountain, it is understandable that construction timelines may vary. Similarly, in the world of custom home building, unforeseen circumstances and meticulous attention to detail can also influence project timelines. Just like Disney prioritizes safety and quality, reputable custom home builders in Sydney uphold these values to deliver exceptional residences. They understand that perfection takes time and that every aspect, from electrical systems to architectural design, must be carefully executed. By engaging experienced and reputable custom home builders sydney residents can ensure that their dream homes are constructed with the utmost precision and craftsmanship, creating a space that exceeds their expectations and stands the test of time.

While the re-imagining process for Splash Mountain may be taking longer than expected, Disney needs to prioritize safety and quality in their construction projects. If they want to hire an electrical contractor, like those from Suburban Enterprises, play a vital role in ensuring that attractions and rides are not only functional but also safe for guests to enjoy.

Their expertise in electrical systems and infrastructure is crucial to the success of any construction project, and Disney surely recognizes the value of hiring experienced contractors to get the job done right.


It’s also not known if both attractions will premiere at the same time at both parks or if they will have separate premiere dates. The last time we heard about the project prior to this new report was when Magic Kingdom Vice President Melissa Valiquette spoke to the Orlando Sentinel on the Theme Park Rangers podcast about the re-theming of the attraction at Walt Disney World.

Valiquette told the podcast: “The sequence of these things is that sometimes decisions an be made many, many months, even years before any of that will be seen on stage…So it’s going to take us a little bit of time to reimagine Splash Mountain.”

Valiquette continued: “Our guests are going to have to put a bit of trust into us because we promise not to let you down…We’re going to deliver a wonderful attraction that is inspiring and beautiful and worth of this princess.”
