    We are coming from December 27 through January 1, 2015. Is Splash Mountain open during that time. What days are best for Magic Kingdom during that time? What is the weather normally like during that time? Thanks

    Hi Amy!

    Splash Mountain should be open for you guys to enjoy, barring any future refurbishment announcements for it that are not on the calendar as of now.   This is one of our favorite rides at Walt Disney World.  It is longer than a normal attraction and the story-line is so fun!

    The weather for your trip can vary greatly.  Average highs are around 73 degrees, with lows around 53. The evenings can be rather chilly, so definitely pack accordingly.  It can also be much colder or warmer than the averages, so watch the forecast as your trip approaches.

    Two things we do when the weather is cold, but we want to ride Splash Mountain is 1) wear a poncho to avoid getting as wet and 2) ride it as the last ride so we don't have to walk around wet at the park all day.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
