Splash Mountain Disneyland is a wet and relatively wild ride. Found in the Critter Country area of Disneyland Park, this thrilling water flume ride sees passengers drifting slowly along a peaceful river before taking on a series of plunges. The last plunge is the longest, and should there be a lot of weight in your boat, you can expect to get extra wet. The riders in front usually get doused the most, though you'll likely get splashed regardless of where you plan on sitting.
Splash Mountain Disneyland is one of the largest water flume rides in the world. It's also one of the most thrilling. Much like the Splash Mountain rides at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Tokyo, it features both indoor and outdoor portions, not to mention plenty of Disney characters. At Splash Mountain Disneyland, the many characters sing along to the tune of "Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah." The theme is largely attached to the Disney movie Song of the South, and many of the characters, including Br'er Rabbit, are from the old America Sings attraction.
The Splash Mountain ride at Disneyland takes nine minutes to complete and is intended for Disneyland Park visitors who are at least 40 inches tall. If you don't want to wait in the regular line, which is often long, you can try to get a Fastpass voucher. These vouchers, which are available for some of the most popular Disneyland rides, allow park visitors to get a specific ride time. While you wait for your ride time, you can enjoy other attractions instead of standing around in line.
As a side note, you might be interested to know that Splash Mountain Disneyland features several Hidden Mickeys. You can find one that resembles a knot in the wood near the Splash Mountain sign. There is another to the left side of the main line once you enter the initial indoor segment, and should look to the left at the very end of the ride, you just might notice the Mickey Mouse picture. The fourth Hidden Mickey that is associated with Splash Mountain Disneyland can also be spotted at the end of the ride. It is upside down and appears on the rear portion of a turtle's left leg.
