Guests Evacuated From ‘Splash Mountain’ Today


Splash Mountain has broken down and required an evacuation again. That ride has been breaking down off and on for years. Maybe they’ll use the retheming to actually fix it.

A video was posted on Twitter:

The video also shows you the backside and behind the scenes of the Magic Kingdom.

WDWNT has a bunch of photos of the evacuation as well:

If we are being honest Splash Mountain has faced issues for years. We have never been evacuated, but we’ve been stuck for a while a few times. Maybe they should have worried about fixing it years ago. Now they are only changing it for political and image reasons. But they should have done something about the issues when they had the money to do so.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.


  1. I’m really sorry that it comes to this. I parts I wonder if they didn’t perform regular maintenance on rides (in general) to save money on work hours and replacement parts. Maybe just fix it with what they have on hand and let ‘er go. With the money they were raking in and the reliability of Tokyo Disneyland attractions by a people who know how to get scheduled work done. I wonder if they’re neglecting the rides on purpose just to appease the bottom line.
