9 Attractions Where You May Get Wet at Walt Disney World

This group of attractions give just a bit of wet, and maybe not everyone will get wet, but YOU might!

9. The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Adventureland, Magic Kingdom

This is such a nice ride.  You can control your Magic Carpet to go high or low as you follow a circling path in Adventureland.  Seems dry right? Just watch out for the camel, he spits.

8. Muppet Vision 3D, Grand Avenue, Hollywood Studios

You know those Muppets, there is always at least one little squirt in the bunch.

7. Avatar Flight of Passage, Pandora, Animal Kingdom

Prepare to straddle what feels somewhat like one of those motorcycles at an arcade, be secured in, and then using 3D screen technology, awesome 4D effects, and motion simulation – feel like you are literally flying on the back of a mountain banshee in the most exhilarating way. Your banshee (somewhat like a flying dragon) will soar through the sky as it takes you on the ride of a lifetime through Pandora – The World of Avatar. Don’t be surprised if you get a little misted when flying over water!

6. Jungle Cruise, Adventureland, Magic Kingdom

The most wet I have gotten was making the mistake of riding this when it was raining.  I took a seat in the center, which doesn’t have any covering on it….and when the Captain felt bad for the kiddos on one side getting wet she had everyone move over to the other side, under the cover.  It shifted the weight of the boat enough to put us very near the water and it altered the course just enough we were inches away from the full spray from the elephant.  Usually the best chance of getting wet is when an animal pops up near you, or you do not lean in when seeing the backside of water.  It’s corny, it may get you wet, but go enjoy it if you can!

5. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Frontierland, Magic Kingdom

There are some sections of the ride that have dripping water or a heavy mist.  Don’t worry, by the time you ride this rollicking railroad ride you will be dry when you get off.  It actually feels good, and then dries quickly.

4. Pirates of the Caribbean, Adventureland, Magic Kingdom

Now, if you didn’t normally think of this as a water ride, even though it is a boat on water, reconsider.  There has been a lot more water at play on this ride lately. Some people are getting off quite wet.  I am not talking about that misty curtain that you see a projection of Barbosa on, that dries before it can get to you.  There is splash at the bottom of the new drop and in the area where Barbosa is on the ship fighting with the soldiers across the bay in El Morro castle you may remember there is “canon fire”.  When those canons hit water, yep, they splash, a lot.  I can’t tell you which seats have that higher risk of getting wet because it can change with each boatload.  Just be prepared.  Stow away those portable Canons (no flash photography anyway).

3. Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station, New Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom

Not to leave the kiddos out of this list because they like to cool down and make some splash too.  This is an area in New Fantasyland amid other ride especially designed for children to ride, but with water in mind.  They can enjoy sprinklers, hoses, water jets, all in a safe area designed for them.  If Dad is taking one of your children on Barnstormer, but the younger one is not ready, Mom, take this chance to let them cool off in this adorable play area.  Jump in yourself for even more fun!

2. Splash Mountain, Frontierland, Magic Kingdom

If you think this is less drenching than Kali River Rapids, think again! Depending on your seat choice, weather conditions, and pure luck, you may get just as wet if not wetter on Splash Mountain.  This ride is based on the stories of Br’er Fox, Br’er Bear and Br’er Rabbit.  A children’s story, so an easy smooth ride, right? Not quite.  Pay attention as you cross that bridge to see what excitement this ride holds in store.  There are a few little drops and then a big one half-way through the ride.  Add in a couple of water cannons, a waterfall, and…well you must be getting the idea of why they aptly named this ride SPLASH Mountain.  Don’t be one of those namby-pamby guests who timidly asks for a dry seat when asked to get into the log. Get in, hold on, no, it’s more fun if you don’t hold on, and have a great ride! The combination of the story, the characters, the great dips and turns and of course the big fall all make this arguably the best ride in Walt Disney World.  Don’t forget to check for your photo at the end of the ride.

1. Kali River Rapids, Asia, Animal Kingdom

Experience perhaps the wettest ride in Disney outside of the water parks. This ride has chasms, gushing geysers, twists and turns, and a 30 foot waterfall drop that is sure to please any water ride lover! There are lockers available nearby that you can leave all your gear in and you may want to hang onto your poncho for a little bit of coverage.  Expect to get wet anyway.  It is fun and when you are sweltering in Florida summertime temps, there is no better cure!

Obviously, the wettest you could get would be at Blizzard Beach, or Typhoon Lagoon.  The wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon as well as Humunga Kowabunga are beyond awesome.  Summit Plummet at Blizzard Beach scary good fun. At the water parks you can choose how wet you want to get.  The Family Raft rides are a great start up slide as you can see most of the other slides while moving to the start of the Family Raft ride.  For the rest, you can at least ride in an inner tube down the lazy river pools in each park.

Experiencing the water rides at Walt Disney World are fun all year round.  If it is really cold Disney will make some adaptations to the usually experience, for instance Splash Mountain may turn off the water cannons.  You will be able to see this from the bridge overlooking the attraction.
