As far as I am aware, I did not think there was any racist reference In the ride, and I am sure most people have never ever seen the movie it was based on...

My kid had and he's 12. Used it as a teaching point on what all was wrong with it. There's so much bad, it's time to let go IMO. The subject matter is quite questionable without the movie.

I wish the frogs remained . I like the idea of the frogs splashing down. But apparently the ride starts after the last kiss.

The music should be great .

I've seen the movie. I remember it from when I was young. Uncle Remus tells stories of Brer Rabbit, Bear, etc. There are clear connections to slavery.

This transition to a new ride...IS AWESOME!

Will be fun to see how this is blended into the theme of Frontier Land at MK. Would also like to see Tom Sayers Island changed with a similar theme and add Tiana's Place/Restaurant.
