Nope. I wish I was. The sequence on the ride where the big hippo comes out of the water and the skipper shoots at it is gone. At least on the boat we had. There wasn't even a gun prop there.
Anything is possible, we were there a few weeks ago and our boat had the pistol but she didn't actually "fire" it. I know in the past it has been up to each CM what jokes they tell or things they point out. This has also been the case with the pistol, some have shot it and some have pulled it out waved it back and forth yelling "I'm gonna shoo shoo" and other variants.
But I wouldn't be surprised if its gone all together. They need to then remove the poor zebra being mauled by the lions.
I think Disney should release the film again, it is one of my favorites, but at this point, I don't count on it. They have waited too long.
