More scaffolding was erected on Splash Mountain. Even though it is due for a major refurbishment, and according to Magic Kingdom Vice President Melissa Valiquette, it will take some time before guests see a change in the park. This makes us wonder if this is just a refresh for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” aka Walt DIsney World 50th Anniversary.

Over the past 2 weeks, we have seen more and more scaffolds being installed all over the side of the Mountain. Now they have added a second level for workers to enter the Mountain. Check out some of the images we took Friday at the Magic Kingdom.

In a podcast with the Orlando Sentinel, Valiquette said, “When we are reimagining a new attraction or a new area of our parks, this can be a lengthy process; there is a lot of work that goes into it.”

She also said, “I’m in a lot of meetings right now around Splash mountain, and of course, our guests haven’t seen any changes yet. That’s going to take some time, but the sequence of these things is that sometimes decisions can be made many many months, even years before any of that will be seen on stage, so it’s going to take us a little bit of time to reimagine Splash mountain, but I can tell you behind the scenes that terrific work has been done including some selections around music around animatronics, and it is really an inspiring story.”
