Bruce Willis and his family know how to have a whirlwind day!

Earlier this week, the actor’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, shared a video on Instagram from a recent trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

Seen riding the theme park’s Splash Mountain attraction with one of their two daughters, Bruce, 68, was captured putting an arm around the little girl sitting next to him, while using his other to protect his face. “You better be careful,” he said during the ride in the short clip. “I think we’ll start over.”

The trip came after Bruce’s family announced he had aphasia in 2022, before sharing his more specific diagnosis of FTD, a progressive brain disease, in February 2023.

Splash Mountain made its final trip to the Disneyland heath earlier this week, closing for good on Wednesday, May 31.

It will undergo a “re-theming” and emerge as Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, a new attraction based on the 2009 animated hit. The princess and the Frog in 2024. While the ride will remain a log flume, the story will be brand new.

Disney announced the closing date for the ride at the park in April. At Walt Disney World in Orlando, it closed on January 23. (Some park-goers even tried to take advantage of the ride in Florida on the last day by trying to sell water they claim came from the attraction on eBay.)

The transformation was first announced in 2020, weeks after several petitions urged Disney to rework the popular attraction’s theme that caught the attention on the site. One titled “Re-theme Splash Mountain to Princess and the Frog” received over 21,384 signatures at the close.
