    Awww please tell me you're kidding. You're telling me that my favorite ride at DL is going to be closed on the 1 and only time I will be down there in all of 2007? Great...

    It was cold, why do people insist on water rides when it's that cold anyway?

    Well let's see, the parks always close to capacity. With the attraction closed, all it would do is reduce the capacity more-so.

    Different people have different tolerances for weather. Splash Mountain really isn't that much of a soaker anyways.

    Yeah - when out of towners flock to the park during the Holidays it actually feels WARM to us. Not hot, but definately not cold!!!!! It'd be a bad idea to close Splash during the Holiday season. It's such a busy time. But a little sooner might have been better, that's true.

    They probably didn't want to do construction (especially to the exterior) during the winter due to the iffy weather. Though Anaheim doesn't really have to worry much about snow or hurricanes.
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    It was posted for a long time (more than a few months in advace) on www.disneyland.com that Splash would be closed during this time. Or just by calling to ask the park.

    If you're only able to go to Disneyland once a year, I'd say you should plan ahead and double check to see what will be closed. For example- I live in California so if I'm planning a trip to Disney World in FL, I know for sure to check *first* and see what is going to be closed before traveling over 2,000 miles. You don't have to be a super Disney planner/expert... just a simple check can really save you from being upset right before you leave for your vacation.

    No matter what time of year Splash (or any attraction) closes for refurb, someone, somewhere will be mad. If it's open for your trip that means it'll be closed for someone else's. That's just how things go with a park open 365 days a year. Personally I'm glad Disney is doing work to keep things running the best they can. It's much better than having an attraction break down everyday for problems that should have been kept up over the long run.

    Just my opinion on all of this... since there's always people upset when attractions close.

    91 degrees isn't cold!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    But I guess no one really thought it was going to be this hot so early either.

    Ah well.
    They did start in January, but they waited for Mansion to be operating again that way guests would not be without both attractions at the same time. It went down a few days after HM came back up.

    What I've always found to be odd are the people who wear ponchos on water rides. Um...if you don't wanna get wet don't ride a WATER ride.

    Funny thing. A while back there was a waterslide with a functioning loop in it somewhere in Jersey if I remember right. I do not know much about it, but I do have a pic of it in a book around here somewhere.
