I was a little disapointed cause i didnt get wet and we just waited an hour for it and like usual in florida it was a hot day. But it was still a fun ride. You gotta love Brer Bear!

Splash Mountain intertwines great scenery, fun songs, an easy to follow storyline that kids enjoy, and a great flume ride. Easily my favorite ride at the Magic Kingdom, Splash Mountain is a stellar Disney masterpiece. As your hollowed-out log moves in-and-out of the mountain, you follow Brer Habbit as he tries to return to his Laughing Place while avoiding the likes of Brer Fox and Brer Bear. The rooms which you travel through are masterfully colorful with dancing animals carrying out everyday activities while singing songs to you and your fellow riders. As you scoot along in your boat to some tunes while enjoying the sights of Brer Rabbit’s journey, you can’t help but relax and put a smile on your face. For those familiar with the movie “Song of the South”, you will once again be able to hear “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah,” “How Do You Do?,” and of course, “Song of the South.” Other than the front seat, most riders don’t get too wet. I insist that you “Happily move along” to Splash Mountain and enjoy your ride!

This is by far the best log flume ride ever. Even if you have to wait hours to get on, it really doesnt matter. The themeing of this log flum is unbelievable. I love the fact that there is absoluetly no down time on this ride. Absolutely, everything is themed. It also tells a wonderful story. I love the fact that Disney took a movie that will never again be released and made it into an ubelieveable ride!

This Log Flume is truely amazing. I rode it twice at my visit to Magic Kingdom. The first time I waited 40 minutes and took a back row. The line had some nice scenery while waiting for the ride. When I stepped on the ride I noticed the seating was quite comfortable. All the songs were terrific on the ride. When we approached the drop I noticed this little dude pop out and say GO FSU. I guess one of the imagineers who built it went there for college. In the back row on the drop I didnt get very wet so I was a bit disappointed. I was still happy because the robots more then made up for not getting soaked. Later in the day it was a walk-on for front row. I enjoyed it just as much and noticed a hidden mickey when you are in the room before the drop. Its hidden on the wall in that gap. The drop was so much better this time because I got soaked. Never skip this ride when you go to Magic Kingdom or you will regret it.

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay, my oh my what a wonderful day. One can not help but have that infectious tune ringing through their head after riding Splash Mountain, Disney’s classic log flume style attraction that simply put, is the king of the genre and puts pretty much all other examples of this type of attraction to shame.

Based on the little known movie The Song of the South, Splash Mountain stands proud in Frontierland, and while dwarfed by the far taller Big Thunder Mountain next door, Splash Mountain beats it in terms of looks. The attention to detail on the on the mountain is just amazing and its very hard to believe that this thing is manmade. Yeah, it’s just that good looking, with the beautiful rock formations, the iconic briar patch, and the view of the attraction’s dramatic final plunge.

Since its addition to the park back in 92’, Splash Mountain has been arguably the park’s most popular attraction, winning over thrill-seekers with its steep plunges and wide array of drops, and winning over those no so brave with the charming characters and story told during the ride. Because of this, Splash Mountain commonly garners lines well over an hour in length, and it’s not uncommon for them to be around 90-120 minutes. While the wait certainly is worth it for such an incredible ride experience, I highly recommend utilizing Fastpasses to cut your wait to almost nothing, or ride it within the first hour or two of the park’s opening when lines should be just 20-30 minutes long.

Once in the loading station, Disney demonstrates their orderly, no-nonsense loading procedure as usual, catering to what guests want while maintaining efficient dispatches. Of the seats, I personally prefer the back and its fuller, more thrilling drop the most by a slim margin over the unobstructed views of the front row. But wherever you sit, you are treated to a truly amazing attraction combining thrills, chills, and a dark ride all into one.

Splash Mountain can be divided into 3 parts- the outdoor segment, indoor/show portion, and the epic final plunge and finale. First is the outdoor part, which is probably the worst of the three segments, but still way better than almost anything you’d find on another flume is. In fact this segment alone is better than a majority of log flumes out there! Some great views of the rest of the Magic Kingdom and of the climatic final plunge can be had during this portion, but definitely the highlight of the first third is the sudden and surprisingly steep plunge hidden deep within the mountain. While one of the ride’s “small” drops, it is actually pretty darn big and probably the size of the big drop on many other flumes. And boy is it a tummy-tickler.

Second comes the beloved story segment which tells the story of Brer Rabbit and how he runs away from home, only to be kidnapped by the dastardly Brer Fox and Brer Bear. All of the scenes are flawlessly executed with undeniably charming animatronics and perfect audio synchronized to perfection. Heck, even if this were a standalone dark ride, it would be one of the park’s best attractions. Yes, the attention to detail is just that great. But also hidden within this portion are two steep drops hidden experienced in total darkness that are very good, with one of them having a sudden uphill portion immediately afterwards that gives a tiny moment of floater air. Eventually, riders begin the climatic climb up the lift to come face to face with the big drop.

And boy is that drop big. And not only is it big, but it’s highly enjoyable and thrilling, providing a pretty good tummy-tickling sensation in the back, followed by an incredible headchopper created by the briar patch’s ominous thorns. For a flume, it is colossal and the only flume I’ve been on with a larger, steeper, and better final plunge is none other than Ripsaw Falls. Oh yeah, and the splashdown, well it definitely gets everyone quite wet, not drenched, but wet enough to beat the heat of the Florida sun. Afterwards comes the happy finale where Brer Rabbit successfully returns home, much the content of everyone else and the riders.

Splash Mountain really is an all-around incredible experience that takes the cake as the best attraction in all of Disney. Just the enjoyment quotient of this attraction is unmatched by almost every other attraction I’ve ever been on thanks to the combination of thrills, chills, and the flawlessly executed story portion. Every time I visit Disney, I always make an effort to ride this multiple times and it never gets old. Oh yeah and to the people who say that Ripsaw Falls is better than Splash Mountain I will say this- Ripsaw defeats Splash Mountain for sure in the thrills category by a slim margin, but Splash Mountain absolutely owns it in the theming department and is just a better all-around ride. I highly recommend Splash Mountain for anyone, since a visit to Disney is simply just incomplete without experiencing arguably the pinnacle of Disney’s attractions.

This is a great ride! Its got theming, a few intense drops, nice visuals of Magic Kingdom, a big splash at the end. Also, it has a well-known storyline. Do Not Miss this 10/10 ride!
