(WFLA) – With Walt Disney World reopening for the first time in months and the recent news “Splash Mountain” will be transformed, merchandise from the ride is beginning to sell for high amounts on eBay.

Magic Kingdom, the park that houses Splash Mountain, reopened to the general public Saturday, with castmember and annual pass previews happening the days before.

In a search of eBay, 8 On Your Side found numerous pieces of Splash Mountain merchandise selling for higher than usual prices, some in bulk.
