As we wrote earlier, Splash Mountain is experiencing a significant amount of downtime this morning at Magic Kingdom. We now know why. Here’s the latest.
This morning, June 29, Splash Mountain is having a rough start. Located in Frontierland, this popular ride takes Guests through the Southern Bayou to help Br’er Rabbit find his “laughing place.” Beware though: you will get wet!
Guests waited in line to be one of the first to ride Splash Mountain for the day, but after only two minutes of opening, the ride had to shut down. You can read about that HERE.
As of publication, the ride is still closed. At the time we were unsure what the reasoning was for the closure. Was it a technical issue? It surely couldn’t be a weather problem either because other outdoor attractions are up and running.
Reason for Downtime
According to our sources, Splash Mountain will be closed for awhile today. A big refurbishment box popped up near the Splash Mountain sign overnight. This indicates some type of technical work that needs to be completed.
Splash Mountain will likely be closed for the majority of the day today, June 29.
At this time, there is no official refurbishment announcement from Disney. This may just be a quick issue that takes a day or so to fix, and we will be sure to keep you updated if the closure extends into the coming days.
What to do without Splash
I know, I know. A day without Splash Mountain can be hard to hear. With this attraction not welcoming Guests today, what is there to do? Thankfully there are plenty of other attractions in Magic Kingdom to experience – including two more mountains!
If you are there at Disney right now, I hope you have another day planned at Magic Kingdom! Only Annual Passholders have access to book a park pass for Magic Kingdom tomorrow. With the return of fireworks on July 1 and the busy holiday weekend, Magic Kingdom is fully booked up for the first several days of the month of July.
