    Splash Mountain

    With all of these pics of spash mountain being tested it is making me hope that there MAY be a chance it would open back up early.. it is slated to re-open on May 19. We will be there 4/29-5/5... do you vets think we have a chance?

    It is possible. But I am not sure. My sis was at DL last weekend and said it needed work. I was there the weekend before and they still had lots to do.

    Little to none. Just a sliver of hope.
    (Do note it's about the same as the WDW one, so if you've been on that one, then you've experienced it plenty.)

    You should go by every other day or so, to see if the canal has been filled, and if there are any empty or water-filled-dummies riding.

    Is it just possible for the private party and then it will close down again?

    I think it would be more likely for them to try to have it open for Mother's Day, but that's just me...

    Karnever: Do you know if Splash is being hired into? Or how about New Orleans Square?

    The only reason I ask is I got hired into attractions.

    Splash Mountain will become a newhire attraction when it re-opens, but newhires are not being placed in NOS because a lot of the attractions are down right now.

    Thanks, I have never been to WDW, and the last time I was at Disneyland the ride had not even been built yet!

    Re: Splash Mountain

    Slightly off topic but does anyone have any info about what's going on inside the mountain? I know they were replacing the lift mechanisms and sprucing up the exterior but is there anything new related to the show? I would hope that they're at least giving everything a fresh coat of paint if not plussing the show a la PoC and Alice.
    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.

    I personally wish they would replace the water jets. I remember how they used to shoot up twice as high and didn't make a grinding noise.
