My Disney Experience also shows the ride as currently unavailable, as seen in the screenshot below. At this time we are unsure of why this closure is happening but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.
Dawn Scholl Armendt took to Facebook to share a photo of her and her family currently stuck on Splash Mountain, which you can see below.
And, Steve Admendt also posted this photo to Facebook showing the family at a standstill.
And he shared this photo with Inside the Magic, showing where he and his family were stuck.
Inside the Magic will keep you updated as we get information on Splash Mountain. Stay tuned.
More on Splash Mountain
Splash Mountain takes Guests through Br’er Rabbit’s story as he looks for his “laughing place”. Disney World describes this attraction as:
Gently drift through a colorful Southern bayou along with happy-go-lucky Br’er Rabbit as he looks for his “laughing place.” But be warned: Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox are in hot pursuit of this wayward hare.
Glide by over 100 adorable Audio-Animatronics geese, frogs, raccoons, possums, bees, alligators and other down-home critters as they sing classic Disney ditties, including “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” and “Ev’rybody’s Got a Laughing Place.”
Then hang on to your hats—this delightful musical cruise ends in an exciting 5-story splashdown into a thorny Briar Patch!
In case you missed it, back in June 2020 Disney announced (after a petition coincidentally made its rounds on the Internet) that the classic theme park attraction Splash Mountain would be rethemed to the 2009 Disney Princess animated movie The Princess and the Frog.
At this time, there is no date for when Disney will retheme the ride but we will keep you updated as we get information.
