A revamped version of Disneyland’s famed Snow White ride is drawing backlash for portraying the ‘true love’s kiss’ scene, which critics say undermines lessons about consent by portraying the Prince kissing Snow White while she is asleep.

The theme park in Anaheim, California reopened on Friday after shutting down for more than a year in the pandemic, and featured a significant overhaul of the classic Snow White ride.

Previously focusing on the wicked Queen and known as ‘Snow White’s Scary Journey,’ the updated ride takes a more lighthearted approach to the tale, and features fresh animatronics and all-new scenes.
