  • [Question] Dear Splash Mountain, Why Are You Being Refurbished?

    I was looking throughout Disneyland's calendar on their website, and Splash Mountain is closed for refurbishment well after the calendar can even be updated. i remember there being rumors that Splash Mountain was going to be closed down for a while, but this long? so my question is....what the heck is going on in there?? and why the heck is it going on there??

    please and thank you

    This has been discussed in the Disneyland Resort Tracker. While waiting for responses, you could search there, but no specifids have been released aside from a little mention in Al's most recent article.

    Winter also brings with it the usual long list of rehabs and maintenance closures for both Disneyland and DCA. Disneyland kicks things off with the standard short closures of Haunted Mansion and Small World to remove the holiday overlays. Later in January, Splash Mountain will be closing for an extended rehab to work on structural repairs needed for that 22 year old building with plenty of water rushing through it. The station at Splash Mountain, a notoriously narrow and cramped space, will also be reconfigured to better accommodate the current fleet of logs with individual seats.

          Any idea when it will be open? Surely it will be finished by July right?

              dear GummiBears_Rock,

              I'm going down for refurbishment because Chuck Norris told me to.

                Now about Splash Mountain, during this time period all attractions will go down at lease for a little while for their annual checkup. Nothing really to worry about.

                    I heard a rumor saying that in place of the old broken alligator in the Riverboat Scene they are going to put Saddlesore Swanson (Look up America Sings) in it's place. Maybe they could be doing that along with a fresh coat of paint, and some other updates in the refurb.

                      You better hope Chuck Norris doens't see this.

                      As for Splash, I do hope they fix Brer's lazy eye during this refurb. It has been hilarious to look at, but the poor guy needs a little TLC.

                        Yay! a separate topic for this! I was really happy to hear about the possible new logs! Hopefully, they will go back to a style log that keeps more water in the flume and less on the guests! That back two seater was a big mistake. Remember all the problems they had, trying to use that?!?!? And they had just reconfigured all the gates, and then replaced the logs, so the seats didn't line up right with the gates! oy!

                              Hmm...

                              No one's said it yet? I guess I will:
