    Curious random questions

    1. How often is the water in Splash Mountain cleaned?
    I got soaked through out most of the ride and my face broke out. I don't know if Splash was the culprit or the water log ride at Knott's. Perhaps both? I also went on the rides first thing in the morning.

    2. What happens with the rest of the turkeys since they sell so many legs?
    It was delish and huge but somehow also tasted like ham. Are the bodies sold to supermarkets?

    3. Is there any one place or land in DL that you don't go to or try to leave out of your trip?
    Tom Sawyer Island is a huge waste of time for me. I think they should bulldoze it and stick a new attraction or two back there.

    4. Dolewhips?

    I never found this dessert even by accident. Where exactly are they sold? Can someone show me a picture of it?

    No wonder I never found the dessert. We all hate the Tiki Room lol. I'll have to look next time. Thanks

    The water is treated as it circulates through the pumping system. It's not to the standards say a pool needs to be.. but they can't run you through sewage You could have had a reaction to the dyes, etc they use, but probably just an unrelated thing.

    That's not for Disney to worry about.. they don't slaughter the turkeys The same question could be asked to KFC

    The stand by the Tiki room. Basically a pineapple frozen ice.

    I hadn't tried a Dole Whip till last year and am hooked on that AND the Tiki Room. So cool to enjoy a Disney attraction, in air-conditioning, and eating a Dole Whip.

    Re: Curious random questions

    1. How often is the water in Splash Mountain cleaned?
    There is a filtration system before the water is pumped back up to the ride... Datameister would probably know exactly where it is, but from aerial imagery it appears to be on the south side of the ride, about the middle, near Haunted Mansion.

    2. What happens with the rest of the turkeys since they sell so many legs?

    Not sure, but they are injected with ham juices for flavor enhancement. (There are many debates about the good/evil nature of this on MiceChat)

    3. Is there any one place or land in DL that you don't go to or try to leave out of your trip?
    Nope... we go pretty much everywhere as the flow takes us. Even TSI has some charms to it that are worthwhile.

    4. Dolewhips?
    You don't even have to see the Tiki Room show to get one... as you enter Adventureland from the Hub, the Tiki Room will be on your left. Right at the entrance to the attraction is a small hut, they are sold here. Enjoy

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    1. I don't know how often the water is cleaned, but I do know that there's a huge reservoir beneath the main "mountain" that can be used for draining all the water out of the attraction.

    This has already been covered, but Disneyland likely buys the legs wholesale, as-is. They are not set up in any way to be slaughtering or butchering poultry. The rest of the turkey is likely sold to other vendors/food manufacturers that have nothing to do with Disney.

    This may not be from the water either, unless you broke out right after riding it. Remember you're also touching hundreds of surfaces that are being touched by thousands and thousands of hands and being sneezed and coughed on all day long. Railings, walls, lap bays, ride vehicles, etc. etc. etc. Always remember to wash your hands througout the day! And try not to touch your face.

    Technically, that's a Dole FLOAT. A dole whip is just the top part, the pineapple ice cream. I'm just sayin'............

    I second that!!! Dole Float are waaaaaaaaaaaay better, when you can't decide to have the Dole Float or the Dole Whip! Pineapple Juice + Dole Whip = Dole Float! That way, YOU GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!!
