While visiting Magic Kingdom this morning, we decided to check in on the Splash Mountain refurbishment.
The refurbishment started earlier this month and is currently scheduled to reopen to guests on February 28th. It’s not a terribly long refurbishment, so we didn’t expect to see much work taking place, but a closer examination of the scaffolding reveals that Disney is working on resculpting the rockwork. More on that in a bit.
We’ll start our look from Liberty Square, which will offer guests their first view of the work taking place.
A closer approach from Frontierland shows the shingle replacement project currently underway.
Other angles offer looks at scaffolding up around theming elements. It’s likely that Disney will touch up some of the paint here.
Refocuing our attention on the main drop and vantage point of the attraction, we can see quite a bit of activity.
A closer examination reveals that Disney is resculpting some of the rockwork, seen below shaped with wire.
Finally, here’s a look at what we assume is a safety device at the top of the drop.
