    Does Splash Mountain have a big Show Building?

    I was looking at aerial pictures of the Magic Kingdom at WDW and was surprised to see the large show building behind Splash Mountain there. However, when looking at aerial pictures of Disneyland, I'm not sure. Maybe I'm naive, but I thought that Splash Mountain (unlike other attractions) was entirely housed within it's "mountain" structure. I guess I'm wrong? I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this!

    It's a big building outside of the 'mountain', but it's not nearly as large as Haunted Mansion's or Indy or Pirates:

    "How do you do?" and the "Laughing place" are all housed in the exterior show building.
    "Burrow's Lament," "Zip-a-dee-do-dah," Slip'n'Falls, Chickapin Hill, load, and the rest of the ride are located in the main "mountain" itself.

    The crappiness isn't one directional.

    I admit I am also one who believed the show was contained within the mountain - it looks like Disney have done some good work squeezing the mountain in next to the HM.

    SM does a fantastic job in fooling you. I always seemed to get turned around and never realise when I enter the show building vs the actual mountain.

    It's completely one directional. You want to get into it in private, I'm game.

    Cool Re: Does Splash Mountain have a big Show Building?

    The big show building that never seems to get mentioned is IASW. It should have been obvious that it requires a big one, but I was surprised the first time I saw an arial photo.

    A bientot.

    So the only scenes that are actually in the mountain are the hill to the final drop and the final riverboat scene?
