Disney World 'wokeness' column on Splash Mountain, Jungle Cruise, other changes stirs Twitter debate

0


Twitter is ablaze over a guest column from a loyal Walt Disney World fan who is strongly rethinking his family’s commitment to Disney because of what he characterized as the company’s change in values.

Those changes include allowing park employees more flexibility to reflect their cultures and individuality on the job and making changes to park attractions that have been criticized as racist such as Splash Mountain and Jungle Cruise.

Jonathan VanBoskerck wrote in a column published by the Orlando Sentinel:

“The next time I ride Jungle Cruise I will not be thinking about the gloriously entertaining puns of the skippers, I will be thinking about Disney’s political agenda. That’s a mood killer.”

Vanboskerck, who described himself in the column as a Christian and conservative Republican, also was concerned that Disney was changing Splash Mountain because of its association with the movie “Song of the South” and about changes to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
