Walt Disney World’s Splash Mountain
was unexpectedly closed today (April 29), and it’s not for a reason you’d expect. In fact, the reason might just make you quack up.
It’s ducks. Precisely, a family of ducks has taken up residence on the ride, creating a potentially dangerous situation for the ducks and requiring the ride to close while they’re being relocated.
Guests who were in line when the ride closed were led out of the queue via the ride’s alternative exit — the one you take if you decide not to ride at the last minute.
Evacuated guests were given Fastpasses to ride something else, and the ducks will be moved to a safer location. Speculation is that with the Cinderella Castle moat being drained, ducks may have relocated themselves to other areas of the park. (No ducks were available to confirm this.) 😉
