CONFIRMED: Tokyo Disney Resort Will Remove 'Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah' From Music Loops to Align with Inclusivity Initiative – WDW News Today

Recently we reported that “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” had been removed from the music loop at the Disney Resort Line Monorail at Tokyo Disney Resort. We now have confirmation that this was intentional and planned in advance, and that the song is set to be removed from all locations around the resort in the coming weeks.
A Twitter user reported last night local time in Japan that “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” had been removed from the playlist at Resort Gateway Station, a surprising move considering there are no standing (or at least announced) plans to replace Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland with another attraction.
After inquiring directly with the Maihama Resort Line Company, operators of the Disney Resort Line, WDW News Today was able to confirm that “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” has been removed from the loops at Resort Gateway Station, Bayside Station, and within the Disney Resort Line monorails themselves.
They noted that this was planned for some time.
An Oriental Land Company public relations representative confirmed to WDW News Today that the song is set to be removed from locations across Tokyo Disney Resort in the coming weeks. They told us “As part of an ongoing effort to create an environment inclusive of all guests, we’re reexamining our use of certain songs across the Tokyo Disney Resort.”
Currently, “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” is part of the music loops at the Tokyo Disneyland Main Entrance, in Critter Country, and within Bon Voyage just outside Tokyo Disneyland. It also serves as the “departure jingle” for Platform 1 of JR Maihama Station adjacent to the resort. “Ev’rybody Has a Laughing Place” is also part of the Tokyo Disneyland Main Entrance loop.
The Oriental Land Company has not announced any plans to update or change Splash Mountain in any capacity, with Tiana’s Bayou Adventure only set to come to Walt Disney World and Disneyland at present.
“Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” was used in many locations across the US Disney Parks, but has been quietly removed over the past couple years.

I was planning a visit to Tokyo Disney, but not if they will be removing Zip A Dee Doo Dah or Splash Mountain. It was the last chance to have one version of Splash left. This is truly disappointing and sad.
Okay now I am getting getting concerned.
Exclusion is not in furtherance of “inclusivity”. Another win for the gratuitous virtue signaling that accomplishes nothing but eroding the fabric of society for the benefit of the elites’ social status.
Senseless. Woke. Out of touch. Disney (and it’s associated companies) just keep finding ways to remove the magic.
I don’t think “inclusive” means what they think it means.
Thats very sad. Its a lovely song. It doesn’t deserve the treatment its getting.
It is a wonderful song and there is nothing wrong with it!!!!!! It was originally sung by a black actor who was the first black man to win an academy award for the part where he sang the song! It should be celebrated, not shunned. Ridiculous!!!
James Baskett and Hattie McDaniel slowly getting erased from history.
Insanity. There’s NOTHING offensive in this very happy and uplifting song. Total and complete over-reaction. Idiocy.
Oriental Land Company, better watch out Japan as the woke mob will be coming after your naming conventions next.
