Dozens of similar listings were also posted with prices ranging from 99-cents to thousands of dollars for jars, containers, or plastic water bottled filled with used ride water.
Splash Mountain opened at Floridas Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Park in 1992, but in 2019 Disney faced backlash after people called for Splash Mountain to be re-themed because of its connection to the 1946 Disney film "Song of the South," which has been the subject of controversy as many critics have described the films portrayal of African Americans as racist and offensive.
In June 2020, Disney announced that the attraction at Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California was going to be re-themed around "The Princess and the Frog" — a beloved animated film that features Princess Tiana and her friends.
