Splash Mountain is currently closed off to guests for a temporary time. It’s being refurbished to improve the ride experience for guests. Those at Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom can see that walls have been put up around the Frontierland attraction. Scaffolding is now up in front of the attraction and guests walking past can see the work being done.
Even the water was drained because of the work efforts outside. It’s a rare sight to see the water missing at Splash Mountain!
No one wants to see their favorite Disney attraction closed, but these temporary closures are necessary. Refurbishments help keep rides in working order. Some of the reasons for refurbishment closures include the need to paint, improve technical equipment, and spruce up the scenery of an attraction. Since we can see the scaffolding, it’s evident that work is being done on the big drop area. They are painting the exterior and touching up details of the outdoor scenery.
Disney closed the attraction on January 6th, 2020. The refurbishment is expected to be completed by February 28th, 2020. Guests will be excited to see the improved conditions when then ride reopens soon. You’ll be singing Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah while riding through Splash Mountain soon enough!
