Disney Water Rides – Who’s Gonna get WET?

I love going to Disney, but sometimes…you just don’t wanna get wet. OR perhaps you do? READ for Disney World Water Rides.

Hey fans, with it being summer and very HOT where I am, I was thinking about all the rides at Disney, where you get wet. Sometimes I don’t mind, sometimes (in the winter) I avoid and sometimes I just pop on a poncho and enjoy. What water rides are your favorites? Enjoy this list of Disney World Water Rides.

Splash Mountain:

Ok, so its in the name, Splash…this is a clue that you might come out wet. The fun thing about this ride is…as the front passengers might get the most wet…it also depends on who is on the boat with you. So…do you get the most wet when the boat is heavier or lighter? I really have NO clue, but I do know that I am ALWAYS wet, its just my luck. You can also get wet from the back-splash from the sides…so you just never know. Avoiding the front isn’t always the answer.

Splash Mountain – Smile for the Camera!
Kali River Rapids:

Again…I am cheating with this one…Rapids??? It SO means water. But like Splash Mountain this ride can also can vary on who gets wet. Not only is it a heavier verses lighter situation, but the ride kinda spins and bumps against the sides of the ride scenery and you just never know what actual seat you will be in. You could be the front, back or sides. But again, I am always the one that gets wet, its my luck in life. And this ride is the worst kind of wet, you can get soaked down to the undies (oh joy). So wrap up your stuff and pop on a poncho…cause you might get SOAKED. And if you see me, stay away…I am always the wet one 😉

Frozen Ever After:

I love this ride!! Of course if you have seen my Frozen Ever After video, you will know that when I rode it for the FIRST time, I had NO idea that you could get wet. It’s more of a splash wet, but it was enough to dampen my outfit and make my shoes squeak, lol. It’s also more of a front row wet, so avoid the front if trying to stay dry.

Pirate’s of the Caribbean:

So…I think this is an accidental ride where you “might” get wet, but it happens. I think about every-time I board my ship, the floor is wet, probably from the fall (dip). But you can also get a splash from the canons that fire in the Pirate Ship WAR scene. Last time my lens got so wet I had to stop filming to wipe my lens, oops. This isn’t a reason to avoid this ride by any means…but…it could be considered a ride where you get wet.

Its a Small World:

This ride is a Disney classic “dark” ride where you 100% don’t get wet, lol. Gotcha!! For those that started reading this thinking…Nina is crazy, you don’t get wet on this ride. I know. Bazinga 🙂 Ok wait, I did once…my kid put her hands in the water and got me.

Frozen Ever After, Ride at Epcot

Thinking about visiting Epcot? Worried there isn’t enough to do? How about Frozen Ever After in Epcot?

Hey guys, it seems I often get families worried there isn’t enough for kids to do at Epcot 🙁 READ and FOLLOW along as I post about all the fun Epcot has to offer, including the attraction, Frozen Ever After. This ride is so popular its actually a TOP Tier ride and more often than not, a super long line. Sing with Elsa, Anna and Olaf and take a boat ride thru Arendelle.

Frozen Ever After – Epcot
Location:

This attraction is located in Epcot, at Walt Disney World. It’s in the World Showcase, in Norway. It’s easy to spot as once in the Norway area you start seeing glimpses of Frozen everywhere. In Norway you can actually meet Elsa and Anna and get lots of cool Frozen merchandise and with the NEW movie coming out this Nov…just wait. You can also enjoy a fun Princess Meal in Norway as well.

The Queue:

As I am sure you have been reading all my other ride posts, you would know that most rides have a queue, a holding area (so to speak) that is basically the pre-ride. Frozen Ever After has a semi decent queue, its feels like you are in the village surrounding the castle, complete with Oaken’s Trading Post. When in that area, listen closely. Its a fun way to pass the time before the ride begins. Look around at the shop and see what you can spot on the shelves.

The Ride:

So the ride itself is inside a Viking Boat and for those that remember the original ride in that area, Maelstrom, its the SAME boats. Its actually also the same ride track. So you board a boat, in water, and coast away into Arendelle. You meet Elsa, Anna, Olaf and the gang and “let it go”. The ride features a decent drop, but nothing to scary. The big surprise about this ride is…it goes backwards. Yep, there is a part in the ride where you are rushing backwards. And if in the front row…you might get a splash during the drop, which is towards the end of the ride.

The Tech:

So, as you saw in the video…the technology in this ride is pretty cool. It was actually quiet hard for the imagineers to figure out and accomplish. When on the ride and you look really, really close you will notice that the figures, specifically the girls are like sculptures where a projection is on the face area that make them animate. It gives them the appearance as if they are singing and talking. This is totally new tech and very different from the original animatronic characters on earlier rides, such as Pirates of the Caribbean. In fact this new tech was also used on Lightning McQueen (in Hollywood Studios).

All in all, I love this ride and never miss it. I love the thrill of going backwards and I love trying to figure out the tech, its the artist in me. And, believe it or not, I have not lost the Frozen appeal. I want to note that this is not a princess ride, so please don’t skip it because you have boys, this is a family friendly, ALL ages/genders ride. My son LOVES it. So give Epcot a try, Fastpass Frozen Ever After and enjoy!
