Splash Mountain is one of the most beloved rides in all of the Disney Parks and can be found in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Tokyo Disneyland. And speaking of Tokyo Disneyland, Splash Mountain looks beautiful right now, as a wave of snowfall has hit the Resort, leaving the ride looking incredibly magical. A recent tweet from @mickeymania1988 highlighted this amazing sight, see the full tweet with the video below:

From the video, we can see that the ride did not have any Guests aboard. As Tokyo Disneyland is currently closed, we cannot see if it was accepting any Guests during today’s snowfall. That being said, at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, Cast Members can control how much water gets on Guests to a certain extent, and turn down water cannons on colder days.

Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea are both some truly amazing Parks, including classic and original rides like Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain, Journey to the Center of the Earth, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and its own take on the iconic Tower of Terror.

While Splash Mountain is one of the most iconic rides in all of the Disney Parks, it was recently revealed that Disney is planning on a retheme for the ride. This complete overhaul would take elements and characters from The Princess and the Frog (2009). While exciting, this decision has been met with some fierce criticism from many Guests. It is still unknown when the overhaul will take place both at Walt Disney World and Disneyland as well as at the Tokyo Disneyland location.

As we have previously noted, Tokyo Disney Resort recently made an effort towards inclusivity at its Parks when the Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights made its return to the Park with a new welcome message that removes all gendered language. The parade’s triumphant return saw the Disney magic spread across the lands and around Cinderella Castle in the nighttime show. The theme park Resort currently has a COVID-19 passport mandate active for Guests and Cast Members.
