    I doubt it. But I will say that the last few times I've been to the Magic Kingdom, there is always something on Splash Mountain that isn't working, whether it's some of the Brer Rabbit AA's not moving, to the Laughin' Place room only half operational, etc. It's been a while since I've seen it all working normally.

    At least Brer Fox doesn't eat the tourists.

    Iím actually very excited for the change. Itís one of my favorite rides.
    Mind you I am a fan of the good old stuff and the song of the south. I also dig the secret stuff within.
    But this is the time, this is a ride that could do well with an upgrade and I believe Princess and the frog is absolutely perfect for this ride setting. They may even reuse some elements.
    I canít wait to see it.

    I think Princess and the Frog deserves it's own ride regardless of whether they change the Splash theming or not. I can imagine a Pirates of the Caribbean type set up. The queue could take you through Lottie's party with a run in with Dr Facilier in the last room of the queue. Then you hop on Louis' back while singing "Goin' Down the Bayou" and following a stream of fireflies. Ray would have to be there of course. So many things could be done with it, including a Haunted mansion type cemetery scene for the ending of Dr. Facilier, but you float by on Louis instead of riding a doom buggy.
    I'll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge.

    I'd ride that.

    You know where they could put that? They could burn down The Country Bears and build it on the ashes. I'd be all for that.

    No Swiss Family. Build a ride there. No one is going to miss trudging flights of stairs, especially in the mask era.

    Although I'm not a fan of The Country Bear Jamboree and can't climb the Swiss Family Robinson stairs, I'm sure there is plenty of space to put it somewhere that wouldn't be tearing down someone's favorite ride.

    I have seen Country Bears who knows how many times. Sure the luster has worn off after seeing it so many times myself but I have really enjoyed taking children and in the future will be taking grandchildren for the first time. Children love it and usually laugh through it. I would hate to see Country Bears removed and know that future generations of children would not get to see it. With that said, we all have our attractions that we would never missed if they were removed but those are often someone else's favorite. I prefer leaving the classics and finding somewhere else to put a new attraction. Tom Sawyer Island is pretty useless if you ask me. It could be redeveloped and multiple attractions could go there.

    No attraction that is all stairs can be someone's favorite. If so, i'd like to meet this person.

    Well, fly on out here. I have a friend who takes the stairs. He also does a stair climb every year in honor of 9/11 and all firefighters who have fallen.

    Yeah, I know. That's just how much I dislike that attraction. It's good for a nap, though.
