PHOTOS: Attacking Natives in “Ambush” Scene and Pygmy Boat Masks Removed from Jungle Cruise at Magic Kingdom

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.

That’s the only thing cheapek knows is selling stuff so the imagineers know how to get things pushed through by making it all about his favorite pastime!

Those masks were Mickey, Donald & Goofy. They could have left those. Hidden characters.

Ok let’s all pretend we didn’t find it amusing in an innocent manner and be appalled at the original ride.

These changes continue to represent the laziness and lack of creativity at Disney. No effort is put into these.
