    Anyone know about the waterfalls at the Disneyland Hotel? I still have never seen them.

    You gotta see them. Make sure you don't wear slippery shoes though.

At which point Facilities would come out and clean the filters. The new "gush" of water would then push most of the debris over the falls cleaning out the top and the process would start over. For a lot of us it was really a special moment when the falls were off. It used to be absolutely silent without the falls (stupid gorilla camp). There were several jokes, but bottom line it was really kinda cool when it was off.

    I actually thought you would comment on the other three waterfalls, which sadly clog a great deal faster and almost never get cleaned out. One of them is actually a bad design and usually ends up not running (empties into the lagoon across from the shack).
    Isn't this an indication that the average amount of time between clogs needs to be worked out, divided by two and added to a maintenance schedule somewhere? What is it with some places and their "wait til it breaks" maintenance mind set?

    I'd ask at the hotel. I honestly haven't seen them in 9 years or so.

    Re: Disneyland water falls...

    The old Jungle Cruise falls were always impressive and fun to go by in a boat. The new pathetic dribble that now comes out is embarrassing to call falls. I say do it right or don't do it at all.

    One falls at Disneyland has become a hidden secret. At the end of Country Bears Jambouree there was a really wonderful falls that guests crossed exiting that set a get mood to the end of the attraction. The falls were always seeming to have life to them, moving at a good clip. I think of it as part of the post-show for CBJ.

    Now the falls are still there, but overgrown with vegetation. It seems to have nothing to do with Pooh at all.

    Hey when did they build the DL hotel waterfalls? Those are pretty cool. BTW, they're near the Bonita Tower I think. They drop down below ground level.

    Re: Disneyland water falls...

    The Disneyland hotel waterfalls are easy to find.. just listen for the roar.. lol

    they are right in front of the formerly known Bonita Tower... they stretch the length of the tower.

    HOWEVER... get your last look at these falls guys... with the new refurb coming up that could possibly call for removal of all three towers will pretty much mean the removal of the entire courtyard.

    They have been planning on removing the falls for years now... but recently updated all the lighting around them to LED's that perform various chases and color changes, so who knows.

    I love the falls at DLH but they area to walk under them has always been closed

    If you go under the hat, follow the path to the left (at the pool). Keep going and they're on the right. Then go to the koi pond that's just past them - it stretched under the walkway!
    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...

    We stole all of the water for Nemo's falls. That's why there's a huge water pipe over the loading area.
