PHOTOS: Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom Now Closed for Standard Refurbishment

Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom is now closed for a standard winter refurbishment. This closure is not for the ride’s “The Princess and the Frog” reimagining, but just routine maintenance that it undergoes every year or two. It is expected to reopen on February 11.

You can see where the water level usually sits based on the fading and erosion of set pieces.
