Disney World has made a number of changes in response to criticism from activists.
The iconic “Splash Mountain” ride featuring “Zip A Dee Doo Dah” from the controversial “Song of the South” movie was replaced by a “Princess and the Frog” theme.
The Jungle Cruise ride was also modified to remove “negative depictions” of native people.
