    How high is the drop on splash mountain

    Hi there, Rayna!

    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay. My, oh, my, I’m so glad you stopped by planDisney today! It sounds like you are either a thrill-seeker or a little wary of heights. I understand wanting to do your research on what to expect during your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. I don’t like sudden drops, but I love The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. I mean, you can’t tell since you can hear me screaming all the way in Magic Kingdom Park, but I absolutely do.

    Splash Mountain is one of those attractions that looks more intimidating than it actually is. While it does have a 5-story drop (around 50 feet), you won’t even notice since you’ll be too busy having a great time. It’s the truth, it’s actual that your experience will be satisfactual! The queue gets rather lengthy during the hottest part of the day, so I suggest going to Splash Mountain first thing in the morning or later in the evening for a lower wait time. If you time it just right at night, you will have a spectacular view of Disney Enchantment as you ride.

    Keep in mind that Guests must be 40 inches or taller to ride, and you WILL get wet. If you don’t want to get soaked, request to sit in the back row. If you do want to let Splash Mountain live up to its name and walk off soaking wet, then request to sit in the front row.

    Rayna, I hope you’re able to visit your laughing place real soon. The magic is real at Walt Disney World Resort, and it’s calling you!

    Find your happily ever after,
