    Big Thunder Mountain needs to be cleaned terribly. Trash and gum all over the rock structures. Just a general pick up would be good. It’s disgusting and below WDW standards.

    1. Joe

      Below Disney standards? I think it’s bellow park guest standards. It makes me wonder what type of people would do that. I guess some of it could be accidental, but it irks me that some people are so inconsiderate as to throw their trash anywhere but in a trash barrel.

    Wow, isn’t Splash usually closed ’till March?
