PHOTOS, VIDEO: Brer Bear’s Tail Returns to Splash Mountain, More Fixed – A Maintenance Success Story

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Less than 2 weeks after introduced the Weekly Walt Disney World Maintenance Report, we have a major success story to report.

Brer Bear’s tail has been missing from this scene at Splash Mountain since at least the early 2000’s. Just days after we started the weekly maintenance report post, it has returned!

Our story doesn’t end there. Most of the other maintenance issues we reported for Splash Mountain at the Magic Kingdom were also fixed this week. We’ll detail these in next week’s report on Wednesday.

The true heroes of our story are those who made this happen. Whoever within the Walt Disney Company made this happen should be commended for bringing this attraction back to its expected standard. Myself and every park guest have you, however many were involved, to thank for a beautiful looking ride that reminds us why we love the parks so much.

We also need to thank so many of you who supported the creation of the weekly report. We hope to bring you more stories like this on a regular basis.
