Ever since it was announced that Splash Mountain will be rethemed as a Princess and the Frog attraction, Splash Mountain merchandise has been flying off the shelves! When we visited Magic Kingdom today, we only found ONE piece of Splash Mountain merch — and it’s new!
Ever since that announcement, we’ve seen Splash Mountain merchandise become incredibly more popular! But one Splash Mountain-related area in Magic Kingdom has been rather quietly closed, and now it looks like that closure may continue for at least a little while longer.
Splash Mountain has been getting a lot of attention lately!
The Walt Disney World attraction will soon be transformed into a Princess and the Frog ride. Since the announcement, fans have been flocking to the Briar Patch gift shop to pick up Splash Mountain merchandise. We don’t know when the ride will be shut down for refurbishment or how long it will take for the ride to reopen once construction begins. We noticed something interesting while perusing the My Disney Experience app today!
We’re spending the day in the newly reopened Magic Kingdom!
And while the wait times for most of the attractions have been relatively short, there’s one place in Magic Kingdom that has already hit capacity for the day!
We’re coming to you LIVE from the newly reopened Magic Kingdom!
We’ve been making our way through the park to get a feel for what it’s like to spend a day in a reopened Disney World! And while we are keeping an eye on the wait times for the attractions in Magic Kingdom, it looks like the longest line of the day isn’t for a ride!
We’re in Magic Kingdom today for the Annual Passholder preview of the reopening!
One of our BIGGEST questions has been how long wait times will be in Magic Kingdom. Well, we’re working on figuring it out; some lines are definitely LONG. You might think the longest line in Magic Kingdom today would be Splash Mountain (after all it IS going to get reimagined). You’re close, but there’s actually a MUCH longer wait for something else.
We are LIVE in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom today ahead of the park’s upcoming reopening to guests on Saturday, July 11th.
We are here thanks to a friend who brought us along for today’s Cast Member preview. So far, we’ve visited Happy Haunts in the Haunted Mansion, seen some old friends, and taken a splash on Splash Mountain. Of course, if you’ve been keeping up with the latest news about Splash Mountain, then you know the attraction will be closing to be reimagined with a full re-themeing inspired by The Princess and the Frog.

With the start of 2020, we’ve seen a few of our fave rides temporarily close in Disney World for planned refurbishments!
One of those rides is a zip-a-dee-do-dah good time that also happens to be the a pretty good was to cool off on a hot Disney World day. While we may not be able to ride Splash Mountain at the moment, we were still able to visit Briar Patch in Magic Kingdom where we found a few new pieces of merch that warmed our Splash-lovin’ hearts!
If you’ve ever visited Splash Mountain, you’ll spot these memorable words upon entering “You May Get Wet!”.
We’re here to tell you that that “may” is probably closer to a definitely! The iconic flume ride is a zip-a-dee-do-dah good time, and one of the BEST ways to cool off on a hot Disney World day! And now you an enjoy the splash more than EVER, with this insanely cool t-shirt we spotted at Briar Patch in the Magic Kingdom!
