We continue to keep an eye on the refurbishments taking place this month by checking in on the Splash Mountain refurbishment at Magic Kingdom.
One of the highlights of our last post was the replacement of shingles on the lift hill structure. As you can see in the photos below, not only have the shingles been completely torn off and a new weather layer is being installed now. We’ll likely see new shingles installed in the coming days.
Another significant bit of work was some rockwork resculpting. What was once wire frame has now been turned into concrete, ready for painting.
Down at the bottom of the drop into the briar patch, work is taking place along a drained track.
Here’s a look at the rest of the bottom of the drop.

The Laughing Place kids play area was repainted in the past couple of days.
Finally, it looks like some props are being taken off-site during the refurbishment. A birdhouse is missing in the photo below.
Splash Mountain is scheduled to reopen to guests on February 28th.
As always, keep checking back with us here at BlogMickey.com as we continue to bring you the latest news and photos from around the Disney Parks.
