New Fantasyland Splash Pad Now Open
Guests visiting the Magic Kingdom now have a new way of beating the heat. The Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station opened last Friday in the Storybook Circus part of Fantasyland.
Casey Jr., the steam engine featured in "Dumbo" that pulled the circus into town, and its four boxcars full of animals (monkeys, camels, elephants and giraffes) begin a "journey" every ten minutes or so. Though the train doesn't move, guests can hear locomotive sounds and see a mist coming from the train.
Reports from the Soak Station say Disney hasn't disappointed where details are concerned. Among the Disney touches are a Mickey glove on one of the monkeys, aged chains hanging from the bottom of the boxcars and the placing of railroad tracks between the station and the nearby bathrooms.
I know we're mostly adults here, but how many of you are stopping by to take a peek at this new splash pad on your next trip to the Magic Kingdom?
