Splash Mountain has now reopened at Magic Kingdom.

As many are aware, Disney attractions tend to have some technical difficulties, given that they constantly run throughout the day. In fact, just within the last few weeks Inside the Magic has reported the Jose animatronic fell over at the Gran Fiesta Tour at EPCOT; the Avatar animatronic, Big Toe, was removed from Na’vi River Journey in Animal Kingdom; and one of the pirate animatronics reportedly fell over at Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom.

It’s also safe to say, ever since Disney World reopened the popular Magic Kingdom attraction, Splash Mountain — which Disney recently announced would get a retheme from Song of the South to The Princess and the Frog has had its fair share of technical difficulties. And it looks as though it is still facing challenges.

This morning, on September 2, Splash Mountain did not open up with the rest of the theme park. In fact, even two hours after the theme park opened, Splash Mountain is still not open.

You can see in the screenshot below, which was taken at 10:58am, Splash Mountain is still listed as temporary closed.

WDW Stats tweeted out 10 minutes after Magic Kingdom opened that Splash Mountain has been temporarily interrupted.

At this time we are unsure as to why the attraction is closed but Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get new information.

More on Splash Mountain

Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort recently announced Splash Mountain will eventually be rethemed to the popular Disney animated film, The Princess and the FrogBelow is the official announcement from Disney Parks:

Today we are thrilled to share a first glimpse of a project Imagineers have been working on since last year. Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined. The theme is inspired by an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.

Tiana is a modern, courageous, and empowered woman, who pursues her dreams and never loses sight of what’s really important. It’s a great story with a strong lead character, set against the backdrop of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou. In 1966, Walt himself opened New Orleans Square when it became the first new “land” added to Disneyland park, so it feels natural to link the story and the incredible music of “The Princess and the Frog” to our parks.
