It was hardly a zip-a-dee-doo-dah morning in Frontierland today at the Magic Kingdom, as less than 30 minutes from park opening, Splash Mountain was down for the count.
At 9:20 AM, it was a normal (busy-ish) Sunday morning at the Magic Kingdom, with Splash Mountain already posting a 45 minute wait.
By 9:30 however, logs began to pile up after the third drop before going through the finale scene.
A few minutes later, Cast Members were seen helping evacuate Guests from the attraction.
While the rest of the attraction was fully evacuated, one log was stuck in the middle of the water near the front of the mountain, stranding the guests inside.
After 20 minutes, Cast Members returned with bottled water, we hope it won’t be too much longer for these stranded guests!
These guests were eventually evacuated as well. The attraction is currently listed as Temporarily Closed on My Disney Experience.
Splash Mountain has faced a difficult summer; from long lines, extended downtime, and even sinking ride vehicles. Hopefully, smoother days are ahead, as the attraction is experiencing increased attention and popularity due to the upcoming Princess and the Frog re-theme.
