Disney World Guests Evacuated During Preview of Splash Mountain Replacement

Guests at the Walt Disney World Resort in central Florida were evacuated during a preview of the attraction that replaced Splash Mountain.

This footage by Diservations, a Disney-focused news outlet, shows guests being evacuated from Tiana’s Bayou Adventure after the ride came to a stop.

Diservations told Storyful that “ride breakdowns during previews are expected” and that they still thought the ride was “stunning.”

The ride replaces the famous Splash Mountain, which was closed in 2023 due to it featuring depictions of characters from “Song of the South,” a 1946 film now widely viewed as racist.

Guests with an annual pass had the opportunity to attend a preview for the ride, according to Diservations.

The ride is scheduled to open on June 28. Credit: Diservations via Storyful
