It looks like our days of 'Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah' at Disney parks are gone for good, which is what prompted parkgoers to wait in massive lines over the weekend for a final go on Splash Mountain.

The classic fan-favorite ride is set to be reimagined into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure from the movie 'The Princess and The Frog,' which includes a New Orleans setting.

The redesigned ride is expected to reopen sometime in 2024.

Parkgoers flocked to the attraction like never before, with lines stretching into entirely different areas of the park, and hours-long lines.

Splash Mountain opened in the late '80s and the water ride was based on the 1946 live-action/animated film 'Song of the South'.

But now, people online are selling "genuine" and "rare" water that they're claiming they jacked from the ride.

Prices on eBay are anywhere from a few bucks to hundreds of dollars, some even up to $1,000 for their "Splash Mountain water".

Disneyland in California still has Splash Mountain up and running, however, they're also planning on replacing that ride, however, a closing date has yet to be announced.

The reason behind Splash Mountain being reimagined is because, in the classic movie, the opinion has been made that they romanticize the old South and "play into stereotypes about African-Americans".
