Universal trolls selling Splash Mountain water on eBay
in 2020, Disney Parks announced that the iconic attraction, Splash Mountainfound in both Walt Disney World and Disneylandre-themes the “The Princess and the Frog” ride.
Guests took the last plunge on Walt Disney World’s Splash Mountain last weekend, and now some are trying to profit by selling water from the now-closed ride.
Well, Disney World’s theme park rival – Universal Orlando – he pokes.
Universal mocks eBay sellers
As The Blast previously reported, people are trying to profit from the historic event of Splash Mountain closing forever, as some claim they stole water from Splash Mountain before the ride closed and are now selling it for hundreds of dollars on eBay. .
There are several listings for Splash Mountain water and more to come. Some are listed for $25 while others go as high as $150 – and people are bidding!
Universal Orlando, one of Disney World’s biggest theme park rivals, is now trolling those selling water. In 2021, the Florida theme park tweeted a joke: “PSA: made for splashing, not drinking” about people trying to drink Splash Mountain’s water.
Now that the ride is closed and people are selling the water, they reposted the first joke and added, “Not for sale either.”
Also, not for sale. https://t.co/2fAQMiS37W

Fans loved trolling Splash Mountain as many responded to the tweet with things like “I laughed too hard at this” and “You guys are my favorite account. Thank you for all you do.”
Another user said: “Someone did something funny!”
Guests take the final plunge on Splash Mountain
On January 22, 2023, thousands of guests flocked to the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom to experience the iconic attraction Splash Mountain for the last time.
In 2020, Disney Parks announced that the iconic attraction Splash Mountain, located at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, will be transformed into the “Princess and the Frog” ride.
Splash Mountain is based on the movie “Song of the South” which is extremely controversial as it is considered by many to be racist. The film is a mix of live-action animation and features an older African-American plantation worker, Uncle Remus, who tells stories to a young white boy. Groups including the NAACP protested the film’s initial release.
The official Disney World description previously read:
Gently drift across a colorful South Bay with happy Br’er Rabbit as he searches for his ‘laughing spot’. Be forewarned, though: Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox give this headstrong rabbit a heavy chase.
Slide past more than 100 adorable Audio-Animatronics geese, frogs, raccoons, possums, bees, alligators and other homey creatures as they sing classic Disney ditties including “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” and ” Ev’rybody’s Got’ is a laughing place.”
Then hold on to your hats – this delightful musical tour ends with a thrilling 5-story splash into a spiky Briar Patch!
“The Princess and the Frog” takes over
With the Walt Disney Company pushing for more inclusion, they decided to get rid of Splash Mountain and turn it into a “Princess and the Frog” attraction. According to Disney, the story of the new attraction continues after the film’s final kiss, as guests join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure, “with some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for the first film. Mardi Gras performance.”
Currently, Disney has not announced a closing date for Disneyland’s Splash Mountain, which means the attraction will remain open (for now), but the Walt Disney World attraction is now closed forever.
