CONFIRMED: Tokyo Disney Resort Will Remove ‘Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah’ From Music Loops to Align with Inclusivity Initiative
Recently we reported that “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” had been removed from the music loop at the Disney Resort Line Monorail at Tokyo Disney Resort. We now have confirmation that this was intentional and planned in advance, and that the song is set to be removed from all locations around the resort in the coming weeks.
After inquiring directly with the Maihama Resort Line Company, operators of the Disney Resort Line, WDW News Today was able to confirm that “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” has been removed from the loops at Resort Gateway Station, Bayside Station, and within the Disney Resort Line monorails themselves.
They noted that this was planned for some time.
An Oriental Land Company public relations representative confirmed to WDW News Today that the song is set to be removed from locations across Tokyo Disney Resort in the coming weeks. They told us “As part of an ongoing effort to create an environment inclusive of all guests, we’re reexamining our use of certain songs across the Tokyo Disney Resort.”

Currently, “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” is part of the music loops at the Tokyo Disneyland Main Entrance, in Critter Country, and within Bon Voyage just outside Tokyo Disneyland. It also serves as the “departure jingle” for Platform 1 of JR Maihama Station adjacent to the resort. “Ev’rybody Has a Laughing Place” is also part of the Tokyo Disneyland Main Entrance loop.
