Disney likes to take advantage of the lower crowds and cooler weather after the holiday season to focus its time and attention to rides and attractions ready for some TLC. This year is no exception. Currently under refurbishment is the Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station in Magic Kingdom.
Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station is in Fantasyland across from the Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Barnstormer. Casey Jr. is the train seen in the Dumbo film. It is used for Dumbo, his mother, and the rest of the circus animals to travel into shows.
The train in the splash area is designed to look like it has actual animals in the cars, by having the elephants and giraffes spraying water at kids.
Over the past few years, the paint has been peeling off. The discoloration in some areas is very noticeable. The entire area needed a good deep cleaning as well. A few of the water features have quit working too. Upon completion, it will showcase brand new paint and working animals again.
The Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak is a very popular attraction with young kids. If you haven’t had a chance to check this area out, consider this fair warning to bring a towel and change of clothes. If you forget, head into Big Top Souvenirs. Towels and clothes are available for purchase.
Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak closed for refurbishment February 11th, 2019. Keep an eye on the area for a reopen on March 24th, 2019.
How many of you have ended up needing to purchase a towel or new clothes after letting your kiddos cool off? The re-opening comes at a great time when crowds begin to increase for Spring break and the weather continues to trend warmer.
