Given the Japan Laserdisc is has been the most accessible way to see the movie in the past 30+ years, it would make sense Japan would be the last holdout in keeping the legacy of this movie alive.

If disney doesnt change the ride in tokyo, then leave it alone in the U.S. if that offends anyone, dont go, you probably cant afford to go in the first place
Unfortunately, racist attitudes exist worldwide, not just here in the United States. It’s no secret that many Japanese people enjoy customs of “Westernization” a euphemism for whatever Caucasian / White people enjoy, including the erroreous attitude of “White Superiority.” That’s why many Manga and Anime characters are pale, blonde, and blue eyed. I hope the company overseas makes the right decision to retheme the ride too!
The ride has nothing to do with white superiority. Especially in Japan, where absent of the United States’ past, the ride is nothing but a bunch of singing animals. By continuing to make a racist straw man of the ride, you are ironically promoting and increasing racism.
I guess that Disney did not want to offend all of the black Japanese.
