so we got out of our boat because it was sinking while we were stuck there and the disney world employee decided to tell us that we should’ve stayed in the boat but it went under as soon as we all stepped out... nice #DisneyWorld #splashmountain #MagicKingdom #disney not okay???? pic.twitter.com/15zMnP1wgX

This is not the first time a ride boat sank.  Recently, a separate incident happened where a ride boat sank on the theme park’s Jungle Cruise attraction.

Last month, Disney announced it will re-theme Splash Mountain to “The Princess and the Frog”.
