      Okay. Thanks. I haven't been since the June refurbishment and I had a freaky dream that they were like ToT and I missed the whole ride. lol

        No need to worry. The drops are very small. Nothing to get scared over. It's always fun to pretend and scare others though!!

          I believe Splash Mountain has a 50 feet drop, POTC has a 11 feet drop.

            Only thing more fun than that is to pretend they aren't there at all. When I was a kid, we went to Disneyland with my grandparents for the first time... My devious parents never mentioned the drops, and instead told them about how beautiful everything is - and how they'd "need to sit right up front" to get the best view! Heh heh heh...

              But they did raise the matterhorn another 150 feet.

                Isn't the first drop on Pirates and the second drop on Splash the same height? ...Except that the drop on Splash is more vertical, right?

                    Was that to compensate for the sinking?

                      Correct, they are not the same height, but they are the same length. Both drops are at about 52 and a half feet, but Pirates is at a much calmer angle, where as Splash's is at a very aggressive angle. This would account for Splash being a much more thrilling descent.

                      The first drop on Pirates is not bad, I hate big drops and I absolutely love POTC at DL.

                        I'd like to do the 1st drop on POTC w/ the lights on some time, in the dark I just can't feel how big it really is.

                          It would take way more time and space with what they used for the refurb to alter those drops You'll be fine.

                            It isn't that bad. I've seen small children ride it and my son is 2 and he rides it...loves the drop.

                                    They're huge! Crikey, it's like falling out of an airplane.

                                    Make sure your seatbelt is pulled tight. Hold on to everyone around you, and pray.

                                      The drops are about the same, no big change there. Now the loop they installed towards the end of the ride, that's the big wienie to get your girlfriend hugging you close!
                                      As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

                                        The height and angle of the drops has not been altered at all. Part of the troughs that hold the water and the boats were replaced, but a guest wouldn't be able to notice that.
