Splash is one of my favorite live action Disney films and I love that it has a small representation in the park. As a matter of fact, Splash would have had a much larger presence in the park. The success of the film was brought to the attention of the Imagineers who were told to incorporate the film in some way. Michael Eisner asked them to put Madison the mermaid somewhere at the attraction Zip-a-Dee River Run. However, the Imagineers disagreed and said Madsion wouldn’t fit the theme. Instead they compromised and named the ride “Splash” Mountain, in honor of the film.
