Disney’s Splash Mountain has Closed- Superfans Are Selling Water from it Online

Splash Mountain has been one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World for over thirty years. The attractive closed on Sunday and several fans lined up for hours over the weekend in the park near Orlando, for one last 5-storey ‘spin’ down the mountain.

eBay sellers then started listing small amounts of the ride’s 950,000 gallons of water.

The little plastic bags of ‘Splash Mountain Water’ are selling for between 8 USD and 25 USD on the popular site.

The reaction from fans comes as Disney takes steps to erase the ride’s racist back story, which originated from the 1946 musical film “Song of the South,” which the company has not made available in any form for more than 35 years.

When the ride reopens next year, Br’er Rabbit and other characters from that film will be gone, replaced by characters and themes from the 2009 Disney movie “The Princess and the Frog.”
