Splash Mountain Failed to Reopen After Refurbishment at Magic Kingdom
Splash Mountain at the Magic Kingdom was scheduled to reopen this morning, but it failed to do so. According to My Disney Experience, the ride’s reopening will be delayed.
A notification from park president Melissa Valiquette noted that while teams were working hard to open Splash Mountain, the attraction would remain closed for the time being.
At this time, Valiquette did not give an expectation for when the ride will reopen. The attraction has been closed for one month, since January 10. The scheduled refurbishment was for annual maintenance, as most water rides undergo in the winter months when they are less popular.
Cast Members at the attraction said they hope to still reopen today, but it will likely be in the afternoon if at all. They are waiting for water, a necessary element of the log flume ride.

Yesterday, water was running freely as the ride was being tested prior to reopening. We witnessed logs travel the flume. It’s unclear why the water is unavailable at this time.
