Nine Days…Nine short days until we arrive at Walt Disney World! we are now in the single digits, and I can’t wait to get there! Today we are taking a look at Sophie’s all time favorite ride — Splash Mountain! It’s our choice for #Day9 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!
The picture you see above is from 2012 when we went with our friends Kerry & Neal and their kids and our friend Monica and her daughter. In the picture are ML and Sophie, Monica and Cindy, and River and Kerry. They had a fun trip as you can see from all the smiles!
It’s not a coincidence that the word “splash” is in the title of the attraction! As the sign above says, “You May Get Wet!” — in fact, you may want to count on it!
Splash Mountain is so much more than a 53′ drop at the end of the ride — the ride is the story of Br’er Rabbit and all his friends (and enemies) from the Disney movie Song of the South. At 10 minutes, 41 seconds in duration, it’s not a short ride by any stretch, and the flume just winds through the mountain this way and that way as you see the story unfold before your eyes.
For the longest time Sophie didn’t want anything to do with it — but then one year she wanted to try it out, and when she did, she was hooked! It instantly became her favorite ride, and one that we must ride at least once on our trip!
Is Splash Mountain your favorite, or do you skip it because of the drop? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!
