Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom park has been experiencing significant technical difficulties in its various show scenes during the past few days. It has been conveyed to us by the employees who staff the attraction that certain mechanical parts are needed to make the necessary repairs and those parts are not readily on hand. Disney is, at this time, choosing to operate the attraction with non-functional show scenes during the interim period. There is currently no estimated timeline for the repairs to be completed.
It is understandable that some guests may not want to subject their children or even themselves to “bad show” at Walt Disney World. If you want to experience the attraction as it was designed, you may wish to visit the Magic Kingdom at a later date. If you want to see for yourself what exactly is wrong, you can preview a video of the problem provided by Kevin Yee and then decide for yourself if you want to still visit the attraction. An update with be posted when there are any further details.
