Is Splash Mountain Open?
Yes, Splash Mountain is still open as of now. However, according to Anika Noni Rose, the voice actress who portrays Tiana in “The Princess and the Frog,” the renovation will debut in 2024.
According to “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” Rose said it during an appearance on the show. Disney, however, issued a press release soon after, which journalist Scott Gustin shared on Twitter. “
“We’ve already shown how we’re bringing Tiana’s tale to life at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts,” it continues. “While the precise date has not been determined, we look forward to providing further details during Essence Festival of Culture in New Orleans this July.”
I’m hoping that Rose shared the information prematurely, and things have since changed. However it is, Splash Mountain will eventually need to be closed for retheming, so maybe there’ll be a timeline after the Essence Festival announcements once everything is said and done.
