Not planned to shut down until the first of the year.

It is not supposed to be closed until January 2 through March 19. I have read quite a few posts about people getting stuck on Splash Mountain lately and it being closed occasionally. Guess it really needs the maintenance/rehab that it is scheduled for and TLC.

It is probably a combination of the ride needing some work done, and idiots. I've been at WDW before when they had to close a ride because someone tried to stand while the ride was in motion.

So true, then it takes a while to reopen the ride.

"Splashwater myn"? Really?? Sounds about as clever as "the electric light parade."

We just got back. We rode it yesterday morning, and last Friday. Did notice some things were not working like the arching water, and the birds at the end seemed arched back. We had a great time! Hit and miss until refurbish I think. Rickedy or not, its still a magical ride for us!

Sorry my kids call it splashwater mountain and it is engrained now as a habit. Done folks on this board get offended at the most trivial items.
