    That, too.

    A Spring closure for Splash isn't a new concept.

    It is past time for a refurb on this one. Visitors will take it in stride, nothing they can really do about it, eh? Glad to see Disney finally giving some love to the attraction that helped renew the parks, though. It desperately needs it.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    And she is back and so far the reviews are excellent. All appears to be working again and the safety tarp is gone.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: Splash Mountain

    And two days later, ooops.

    Today, 2 days later SM went down with guests stranded for around an hour and then guests were evacuated.

    Oy. Hoping it doesn't reoccur too often.
