“Splash Mountain Medley” Removed from Walt Disney World Official Album on Select Streaming Platforms

With Splash Mountain set for a retheme to Princess and the Frog in the near future, Walt Disney World has pulled the attraction’s signature song medley from the Official Album for the resort.

The album, which features song tracks from a number of beloved Walt Disney World attractions, includes songs like “Swisskapolka”, “The Bear Band Serenade” and “Grim, Grinning Ghosts.” Now on Spotify, the “Splash Mountain Medley” track has been greyed out:

Die-hard fans looking to sing along to the flume ride’s catchy tunes can still stream the album in full, “Splash Mountain Medley” and all, on Apple Music:

(Do note that some Apple Music users have noted that it is not available for them, however we were able to pull up the full album on the Apple Music website.)

On Google Play and Amazon Music, the songs are also still available, but not for individual download—they must be downloaded with the album as a whole. Given the inconsistencies between the platforms, it’s unknown whether this was a decision made by way of those streaming companies, or whether Disney is looking to phase out the attraction and its related Song of the South ties from the social consciousness completely.

Splash Mountain reopened to Cast Member previews earlier this week at the Magic Kingdom, and the attraction has sustained some of the longest wait times in the entire park. Its adjacent merchandise shop, the Briar Patch, has had to implement virtual queues due to long lines of guests buying bags upon bags of attraction merchandise.

There is no set date for the official re-theme, and Disney has yet to announce a closure for Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World or Disneyland.

Just bought the individual download just in case now. Ain’t no way anyone is going to tell me otherwise what I can’t and can’t like. I love this ride, and I’m making sure that I NEVER forget this ride. There is NOTHING wrong with this ride. NOTHING.

Yet more unnecessary nonsense around Splash Mountain. Slowly, Disney is erasing it from its own history. Extremely sad and disappointing.

The Splash melody from the WDW resort album has been missing from Spotify since 2018, but the Splash melody is still on the Disneyland Legacy collection album.

Travesty nothing more nothing less. The only types of people that erase history are, well you all know…wrong on so many levels.

I’m glad I have an old CD (remember those?) that includes all the Splash Mtn related music. Zip a Dee Doo Dah, Ev’rybody Has a Laughing Place…..looks like the CD is from 1997, Walt Disney Records presents the Official Album, if anyone looks to find it online anywhere. I cherish mine and play it while driving to Disneyland whenever I stay at my parents’ place and borrow their car lol.

The most magical place on earth is losing it’s magic. There is absolutely nothing racist about Splash Mountain. It’s a fun ride with some of the happiest Disney musics ever made. And now singing zip-a-dee-doo-dah makes someone racist? That’s sad…

Glad I bought the CD with it when we visited last year. This is unnecessary and it seems like they’re going out of their way to kick everyone in the teeth who loves that ride, and they continue to until it’s completely erased.

Absolutely ridiculous. I’m hoping the change.org petition that is now over 79,000 signatures strong will change their opinion. If Disney didn’t hide Song of the South, would actually release, do a round table discussion on it regarding American history, history of the Uncle Remus book and the origin of the stories, the film, and the ride it would not only educate the uneducated who quickly deem all things Song of the South racist, but it would also finally remove the ‘taboo’ feelings people have when most have not even seen the film, they are just quick to jump on a… Read more »
