I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we are just learning that Splash Mountain will be closing for another refurbishment in the early part of 2018. The popular ride at the Magic Kingdom closed on August 28, 2017 for a refurbishment and is scheduled to reopen on November 17, 2017.
Per the Disney Travel Agent website, the next refurbishment on Splash Mountain is expected to begin on January 8, 2018 and last until February 1, 2018.
So, what’s the reason for another refurbishment within a few months? One of the reasons I can think of is the current refurbishment is taking longer than planned and they want to have the ride back up and running for the height of the holiday season. Then, they can close the ride down in January when crowds start to slow down once the holidays and Marathon Weekend are over.
Let’s just hope this is the last refurbishment for a long while now!
