    Will Splash Mountain be open in July 2023 at Disneyland?

    Hi, Casey! Welcome to planDisney

    I see you are planning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth in July. There is nothing like a visit to the Disneyland Resort in the summer. Sure, the temperature is warm. But there are plenty of ways to stay cool. And one of those ways is by riding a water ride.

    Although there has not been official word on the closure of Splash Mountain, you can probably expect it to be closed this summer. That is because it will go through a reimagining to become Tiana's Bayou Adventure opening in late 2024. 

    Have you ever experienced Grizzly River Run in Disney California Adventure? That is a comparable attraction to Splash Mountain and is especially fun if you have a larger party with you. Some of my other favorite water rides I would recommend are Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, "it's a small world," and Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland Park

    Tip: I highly recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ to avoid the long lines you might experience with these water rides in the summertime. If this isn't in your budget, keep in mind that Single Rider lines are available for Grizzly River Run and Matterhorn Bobsleds.

    Casey, I hope this information is helpful to you. You will find so much to be excited about, even if an attraction you wanted to ride might be closed for refurbishment. Have more questions before your trip? Come back and ask us!

    Your Pal,
