  • [Question] How Many Waterfalls Are There?

    My friends and I were sitting around doing nothing and we got to talking about Disneyland and the question came up,

    How many waterfalls are there and where are they? Any waterfall, large or small. To be generous let's count even the drops on Pirates and Splash as waterfalls. How about in the whole resort? Which one is the biggest and which one is the smallest?

    I thought this may been discussed before but I couldn't find it using the search feature.

    What's your guess?

    I know the Splash Mountain Final drop should be the biggest.
    MEOW.

      Huh. You mean places where water falls due to gravity, so including those in attractions.

      Adventureland might have the highest waterfall-to-attraction ratio, with the Jungle Cruise and the Treehouse.

      Wait, does this include fountains? Because after water shoots up it does indeed fall.

        Unless it's being shot up at escape velocity.

          Counting fountains is a bit of a stretch, Merriam Webster defines waterfalls as:

          1 a : a perpendicular or very steep descent of the water of a stream b : an artificial waterfall (as in a hotel lobby or a nightclub)

          so that's a great place to start, and I'm talking about any waterfall inside or outside, so those inside attractions would most definitely count.

            Oh man, you just gave away the big finale for WoC.
            The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

              Well, lets start:
              1. Schweitzer Falls (Jungle Cruise)
              2. Tarzan's Treehouse water fall
              3. Pirates of the Caribbean first drop
              4. Pirates of the Caribbean second drop
              5. Splash Mountain first drop
              6. Splash Mountain dip-drop fall
              7. Splash Mountain final drop
              8. Water fall nestled into the corner of Pooh ride, and confectionery shop
              9. Big Thunder Mtn. Railroad cascading water fall - first lift
              10. Snow White Wishing Well groto water fall
              11. Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage entry water fall
              12. Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage exit water fall

              Nothing else come to mind.

              So .. there's at least 12. If not more.

If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

                  Actually, I heard Pirates was the actual "biggest", as in length or height, its just at a different angle so doesnt feel bigger

                    You forgot, the one at the end of Pirates is counted as a waterfall. I read in a disneyland fun fact book one time that it's the only place in the park where you go down and up a waterfall.

                        There are at least two, maybe more, in the grotto of PotC. There is a small one after the big drop on the right side of Splash Mountain. There is the one on the north side of BTMRR. You left out Matterhorn, not sure how many it has, three maybe? That's all I can think of, but obviously I need help to come up with an exact number.

                          13. Matterhorn - cascading water fall - facing east (to TL)
                          14. Matterhorn - cascading water fall - facing north/east

                          Too bad Nature's Wonderland wasn't still around.
                          We'd be counting a lot. Which probably holds the record for the most number of water falls for any Disneyland attraction - Past or Present.

                            There's also one over towards the Subs:
