Splash Mountain Decorative Collectible and Pooh Too!

My favorite attraction in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland is Splash Mountain. It gives one of the longest rides. It has perhaps the most animatronic figures. And… it is one of the most awesome flume rides ever!

So when I can find unique collectibles featuring this ride, I snap them up. The piece I’m featuring today was found in a large flea market in Florida:

    

    

This is a great concept as it makes a nice piece even when it is not opened up. But when you open it, the display potential explodes!

Tigger and Winnie the Pooh are riding the flume together and can be removed from the piece. Why these two Disney characters were added to a Splash Mountain collectible is unclear, although they do appear to be having fun!

    

At least Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear get to wait in ambush, but I think they’ll be surprised when they catch a Tigger and a Pooh Bear instead of Br’er Rabbit!

“Please keep paws and cute noses inside the log at all times.”

It’s pieces like this that make my day as a disneyana collector!

9 Days: Splash Mountain

Splash Mountain

Part of our team finishing up on Splash Mountain! It’s our choice for #Day9 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!

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!

Splash Mountain

As the sign says, you may get wet!

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!
