Lyrics from “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” have been quietly removed from the set list of Disneyland’s Magic Happens parade, Variety reported.

The song originated from the 1946 feature “Song of the South,” a movie that has been criticized for its stereotypes of Black men and its romanticized view of the post-Civil War South.

Disneyland officials confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the song was removed from the setlist and replaced with a song from the 1953 feature “Peter Pan.”

The “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” song and characters from the “Song of the South” film are also heavily featured on the Splash Mountain ride at Disneyland. In 2020, Disney announced plans to re-theme the famed ride into a “Princess and the Frog” attraction titled “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure” amid a racial reckoning across the U.S.

The new version of the ride is expected to open in late 2024 at the U.S. Disney parks. The Walt Disney World Resort closed its version of Splash Mountain on Jan. 23; however, Disneyland has yet to announce any closure date for its version of the ride.

The Magic Happens parade returned to Disneyland in late February after a three-year hiatus mainly due to the park’s closure in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The parade is scheduled to run twice a day at the theme park.
