Between this construction, the extended Thunder Mt refurb, and the construction of Full Throttle at SFMM, I may be pushing my planned May SoCal visit back a few months, maybe into September....
Changes like this one are worth waiting for!
Disney really needs to step up their game.
Splash Mountain at TDL was in excellent condition when I visited in 2011. We can only hope attendance drops at both Florida and California Disney parks once the Universal parks get their respective new Potter offerings, and Disney then realizes they need to step it up in order to keep guests coming back.
