  1. Such lovely and cute merchandise! However I wish Disney would include Splash Mountain merchandise again! If they’re true to say that they’re including everyone, then they should include Splash Mountain merchandise! Save Splash Mountain! Please sign the petition on change.org to save Splash Mountain in both the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland! Disney should expand the park and add a princess and the frog attraction!
