Glide along a colorful bayou in a hollow log—past delightful singing critters—to a thrilling 5-story splashdown. Gently drift past rocky caves, vine-strewn swamps and sun-drenched meadows as you accompany happy-go-lucky Br’er Rabbit on the adventure of a lifetime. But be warned: Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox are in hot pursuit of the roaming rabbit and they’ll do anything they can to catch him!
Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about Disney’s Splash Mountain…
Splash Mountain is based on the Disney film ‘Song of the South,’ which is based on the Uncles Remus stories collected by Joel Chandler Harris. Rather than focusing on a single Br’er Rabbit story, the ride combines elements from a variety of different stories retold in the movie. Over the years, Disney has distanced themselves from the controversial 1946 film, which has never been released on home video or DVD due to concerns over political correctness and racial sensitivity. Splash Mountain is one of the few reminders left that Disney ever produced the film.
