    Splash Mtn refurb

    I see on another site... wdw + magic ... a nice video of the ride through of SM that reopened yesterday. Looks like this beloved ride got the TLC treatment. No more tarp. Nice bright colors. Working animatronics! Looking forward to seeing it with my own eyes in May. Anyone on here go on it yesterday or today?

    A trip to Magic Kingdom feels empty without this ride, glad to see it's finally re-opened! Can't wait to see the hard work they put into it pay off

    Were parts of the audio updated? It sounds a little different... esp. the finale chorus. Animatrponics look fantastic are actually articulate the way they did when it opened.

    Nice.

    (But I still love the orginal! Its quicker pace has a nicer story flow).

    While I'm happy Splash got some much needed attention, the question remains: how long will it STAY in this type of shape before we start to see some of the problems it had in the past? I hope it will be a long time...

    I give it a month until the folks at WDWMagic are arguing over the "million dollar rabbit"....again.

    Last time all the animatronics were up and running, it lasted about 2 weeks before it was in just about as bad of shape it had been. Same people, same policies, same result.

    maybe they're just refurbishing the same cheap *** parts?

    Looks good now that the refurbishment has finished
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).
