In the latest of an ongoing series of changes to address cultural sensitivity at the Jungle Cruise, the masks have been removed from the canoes at the former “Pymgy Welcoming Party” scene.
This scene has undergone several changes already, with the spears and Pygmy hut removed. The hut was replaced recently with the “Boats & Baits & Bites” shack.
For reference, the photo below shows the canoes with the masks intact.
Over at the “Ambush” scene, the second and third sets of attacking natives have been removed. The first set of hunters was removed earlier this month.
Recent changes have also seen the Trader Sam figure replaced with “Trader Sam’s Gift Shop” and new characters debuting at the “Trapped Safari” scene.
