If you’ve been looking forward to the Magic Kingdom’s Casey Junior Splash ‘n’ Soak Station being reopened, you’re not alone! The weather is warming up, and every time I walk into Storybook Circus, I see parents with young children peeking over to see if they can utilize the space yet.
The bad news is that the refurbishment continues. The good news is that Casey Junior is looking better than ever! The main section with Casey’s engine is complete, but the side portions are still being worked on. Those areas are marked off with walls of bushes. Hopefully, the renewed splash zone will be in working order by the time families travel down for the summer heat!
The Splash ‘n’ Soak Station has been a favorite of parents and young children for years. It’s one of the rare spots in Walt Disney World that is designed for children to run and work off some of that pent-up energy after riding in a stroller all day! Some parents have the forethought to bring swimsuits for their kids, but either way, it’s a fantastic place to cool off.
Since Walt Disney World closed in March 2020, the area has remained off-limits. Though we have no official reopening date, this refurbishment is starting to appear advanced. We can certainly hope to see children playing there again soon!
