With the latest news of Disney announcing the retheme of Splash Mountain from Song of the South to The Princess and the Frog, fans are now selling their Splash Mountain memorabilia and merchandise on eBay — and it is not cheap.
One specific piece of merchandise we noticed that has a hike in price is the 30th anniversary Splash Mountain Funko Pop! set.
In fact, there are quite a few listings of the 30th anniversary Splash Mountain Funko Pop! set that is selling for over $200! This listing below shows the 3 pack of Funko Pop! with a current bid of $200 (plus $8 in shipping) but this is far from the only listing.
In fact, we found quite a few different listings which all show prices ranging from $120 to over $200.
More on Splash Mountain Retheme
Yesterday, Disney announced they will be retheming the iconic and popular attraction, Splash Mountain, to showcase the loveable Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog. The retheme will take place at both the Splash Mountain attraction at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World and for the Splash Mountain attraction in Disneyland park.
Disney’s official statement read:
Today we are thrilled to share a first glimpse of a project Imagineers have been working on since last year. Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined. The theme is inspired by an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.
Tiana is a modern, courageous, and empowered woman, who pursues her dreams and never loses sight of what’s really important. It’s a great story with a strong lead character, set against the backdrop of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou. In 1966, Walt himself opened New Orleans Square when it became the first new “land” added to Disneyland park, so it feels natural to link the story and the incredible music of “The Princess and the Frog” to our parks.
