Now that the water cannons are turned off It's not Quite Splash anymore..more like Trickle Mt. is more appropriate. Very disappointed with Splash now. They took away the funnest part of the ride!

Splash Mountain is always fun to ride; the only real negative is that sometimes there can be a long wait. The story is great, the drops are great, it cools you off, etc.

Just an overall great ride that cant be missed.

One of my favs - from the music to the attraction itself. Hate the fact that you get soaked? Bring a change of clothes or wear a poncho. It's not called SPLASH Mountain for no reason. Time to be movin' along...

This use to be our favorite ride. We visitedin March 2011 and after the remodel this ride is just sad. Half of the fountains in the laughing place weren't working. On of the Geese had his head turned backwards. The new lap bars was supposed to keep the ride from shutting down, but it did just as much. But the worst part is the water cannons!! You don't even stand a real chance of getting wet anymore. The one pointed towards the crownd that use to get people wet watching just puts up a mist, and the one that hit the logs now misses. When I ask cast memebers what happened they responded that too many people complained about getting wet. IT IS A WATER RIDE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!! IT IS POSTED EVERYWHERE THAT YOU COULD GET WET. They need to change the signs to you used to get wet.

Even if my 8-year old son didn't want to ride it a second time, it is arguably one of the most entertaining at Magic Kingdom. I love the huge splash drop! You get wet but not that much. Use the same 1$ ponchos as for Kali River Rapids :-) A nice way to relax for a few minutes, cute animated characters along the way.

This ride is probably my favorite ride i have ever been on. Everything about it just puts me in such a great mood. The music will put a smile on everyone's face, the drops are fun and exciting, and you get wet! I like the one in world better than the one in land, but the only problem is you get more wet in land.

seriously my favorite. we rode it three times, the 5 story drop is the best. it was cool cuz we rode it 2 times in the day, and didnt really get too wet (because we didnt ride in the front seat). well our second time, we got stuck for half an hour! ugh. but to make up for it they gave us passes for a ride with no wait in line. so what did we do? we used it for splash mountain of course =) we got on a 3rd time at night...we managed to get a whole log to ourselves and we sat in the front..i'm talking soaked from head to toe! it was so fun. also they tend to tease you with a couple short drops, and 1 in complete darkness before the big one. hands down the best ride =)

Splash Mountain is by far one of the most creative ride in the Magic Kingdom. Worth the wait.

1. Great music. Extremely catchy.
2. Amazing animatronics.
3. Thrilling but still enjoyable drop.
4. Load of fun.

1.Long waits

The Disney magic is in full effect in this wonderful themed and exciting attraction. Several little dips (including one in the dark that's almost more fun than the big drop at the end) build to a crescendo as you drop down Chickapin Hill. Wonderful music and cute AAs add to the fun. A true Disney classic.

It's your run of the mill water flume ride with some AAs thrown in so it tells a nice little story. The laughin' place drop is more fun then the plunge into the Briar Patch imo. All in all it's fun but don't count on getting very wet on a hot day. Not worth more than 30 minutes in line.

Felt kind of silly going on by myself. DW didn't want to get wet (although I only got a little splash) and she thought DD wouldn't like it. Next time I'll be taking them both on.

In the end, I was glad I went on by myself. I loved it!

This ride is really cool and fun. No matter what time or month you go { maybe not December } there is always a long line, but the ride is worth it. It's a good long ride and a great way to relax. With music and a classic tale of the Disney Original Movie " Song of The South" who wouldn't like it? Oh and "SPLASH" !

The lines can get long in peak times or on a hot day so if you go then hit this thing up early in the day. The ride itself is very entertaining, and you'll be humming the songs for the rest of the day. The final drop is always a thrill and you get some nice views of the MK and contemporary before you plunge. A must do if you are at the MK, be sure to hit the other mountains as well.

Every time I go to Disney, I have to ride this at least 5x. Splah Mountain is perfect, top standard, Disney quality. It has a perfect lenghth, perfect amount of thrills and the perfect fun for the family. Much detail put into the Audio-Animatronics that keep you amused before the huge, five story drop at the end. Included is that remarkable tale and morale of Brer Rabbit learning his true home is the Briar Patch. Clever names and catchy songs go into this ride last of all to make this the perfect ride experience.

This is one of the best in my eyes!

I NEVER queue for this ride...always get a fast track or ride later in the evening. If I did queue for the one hour plus, I wouldn't be disappointed...it's soooo not necessary though!

The ride itself is amazingly intricate and lasts a good 6 minutes. The hills are fun, sometimes scary, and the scenery is great. You can't help but want to ride it again and again!

This is my favorite "mountain" attraction at the Magic Kingdom. I really think this is the perfect blend of a thrill ride and a traditional audio-animatronic attraction. It's got one of the steepest, longest waterfalls of any ride in the world for thrills, plus the fall in the middle of the ride that is more like a dip. There are animatronic animals everwhere, and the story is quite cohesive if you're listening to the lyrics. This is one thrill ride that meets you on all levels.

I'm so happy that I decided to go on Splash Mountain. I am terrified of heights and drops, and for years, wouldn't go on. I've always wanted to though, because it looked like so much fun. I made my father tape the ride so I knew if there was anything he was leaving out when he told me about it. I went on, held on white knuckled to the bar and survived! It was so much fun. After a while you don't even feel the drop. My advice is just scream and before you can finish your scream you're already at the bottom! Fantastic ride. Great for all ages and stomach problems...lol..= ).

It cannot get any better than Splash at Magic Kingdom. Sure, other attractions come VERY close...but Splash is one of a kind! Most attractions have such long lines, and the duration does not make up for it. Not so here! The lines are long, and the ride is long and very detailed, so that each time you go, you notice something new. The drop may be extremely intimidating, but it looks worse than it is. Aside from that, the attraction has MUCH more to it than the various drops. I don't know what else to say...just go ride it!

Shore As Yore Born! I love this ride! Guests get to see Brer Rabbit's escapades as they ride along in this Song of the South themed log flume ride. Don't be lulled into a false sense of security, tho, that humongous drop at the end will shore enuf settle your hash! Be prepared for the possibility of gettin' real wet! And keep an eye out for Brer Fox and Brer Bear--they out there, lurking about and lookin' to settle Brer Rabbit's hash! This Southerner highly recommends the Splash Mountain experience!

There are really only two downsides to this ride: 1. When it's busy and it's hot, the only thing worse than standing in the line for this ride is being on "It's a Small World". 2. 'Bigger' people will have trouble getting in and out of the flumes. (I am not 'bigger', but I am tall, which also presents a struggle) Once you get inside the ride area, the queuing is cute and fun for children. The ride itself is to be enjoyed by people of all ages, even college students! (like me!) The ride loses its 'thrill' factor after going on it a few times, but it is still a blast and a MUST ride every visit to MK.(but get there early so you dont have to wait so long, or get a fastpass!)

Splash Mountain is a Log Flume kind of ride, but believe me, you will compeltely forget about that when you be riding it... Great songs, funny characters and some drops get together to create one hell of a ride. You want thrills? Wait until you get to the last drop... Want some fun? Then sing along this cartoony characters who tell a tale in their lyrics. Watch the bad guys torture the good rabbit before the fall, after that, the good triumphs over evil, an always-good moral of a fable for children...

Splash Mountain has become my favorite MK ride! It's right up there with Pirates and the Haunted Mansion. The drop isn't really all that scary, and it's what happens after the drop that separates Disney from Six Flags, Paramount etc. Most Americans under age 40 aren't familiar with "Song of the South" due to supposed racism in the film; I've never seen it. The Brer Rabbit chase story could be explained better in the queuing area. As it is, the goofy visuals combined with the banjo music makes the ride seem like one of Jerry Garcia's more interesting dreams! Loads of fun, and I'd go on it all day if I could.

One of the best rides in the Magic Kingdom. Splash Mountain is the perfect blend of color, theming, music, boat ride, and thrill ride. The brilliantly designed interior is an attraction by itself. The Brer Rabbit story progresses throughout the ride to add to the interest. The music is uplifting and lots of fun. Of course, the ride itself offers a nice trip along the water with the slow build-up to the final thrilling drop. And smile for the camera! Don't even think about leaving without an on-ride photo. Years later, it will be priceless. A major attraction that is well worth the wait!

This attraction is not just a flume ride, and not just a dark ride, but an enchanting combination of the two. The storyline is based on the film "Song of the South" and the Uncle Remus tales of Joel Chandler Harris. The story scenes are elaborate and filled with animatronics from singing frogs to Brer Rabbit who actually hops. The drops are somewhat fun as well, but the highlight is definatly the big one into the briar patch. Definatly a must see.

Does it get any better than Splash Mountain? I've been trying to think of anything that Disney offers that blends so much of what Walt himself inspired in us all and a need for thrill that next generation theme park visitors are thristy for. The story is easily understood, the animatronics are incredibly designed, and the theming for this flume ride is breath-taking. You have to be appreciative of the look of the mountain as your approach it. The songs are catchy and classic. The drop at the end of the ride is steep, but not excessively scary. As I mentioned before, a perfect blend of Walt's vision and thrills. I could ramble on for days about how this one ride is the "best", but you have to ride it for yourself!

Splash Mountain is vastly overrated. It's definitely not a great ride, but it's not awful, either. I'd call it mediocre. One point against it is that it's based on The Song of the South, the story of Brer Rabbit, a story rarely known to children. Sure, the inside theming is well-done. You're completely surrounded by the story of the ride with the typically impressive Disney animatronic figures. The ride contains the typical false-drop, much like Pirates of the Caribbean, where you're fooled into thinking the drop you're on is the main one or is longer than you think. Finally the 52 ft. final plunge really isn't anything to write home about. Sure, it's a nice size drop, but you hardly get more than a few sprinkles of water on you and then the ride is over. It's worth riding if you've never done it before or if you're just in the area, but it's not on my list of must-see attractions.
