The “official” story of the creation of Splash Mountain maintains that the inclusion of the America Sings Audio-Animatronics figures was part of the initial plans. As the story goes, Marc Davis had created characters and designs for Song of the South that were never used in the film. Then, almost 30 years later, they were reborn in the America Sings attraction, a project Marc Davis also worked on. Moving the AA figures to the new Splash Mountain attraction would be a perfect fit as they were already themed appropriately. In addition, closing America Sings would free up the Carousel Theater for a new, more popular attraction in Tomorrowland. However, according to Alice Davis (Marc Davis’ wife), it was the out of control budget, not some grand plan, that necessitated the scavenging of one attraction for another. Reusing the America Sings AA figures was a way to rein in costs. It is interesting to note, the Carousel Theater sat empty for ten years after America Sings closed. It finally reopened in 1998 with a West Coast version of Innoventions.

Anonymous asked: When I was six my family went to Disneyland. We got on Splash Mountain.I was sitting in the front seat. I was having fun until the part where they take you up for the big drop. The logs were really backed up, so we were stuck inclined under those two vultures sitting on a branch. They say things like “Hmmm, looks like trouble ahead,” they laugh at you. our log was stuck right under them for the longest time, being six and scared for the drop, got so scared I started screaming at them “Shut up!"
