Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak in Storybook Circus: First Look w/ Water Effects, Tributes & Details, Winnie the Pooh New Meet & Greet Location – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Walk this way to the new Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak at the Magic Kingdom (below, left!) Casey Jr. greets you with eyes wide open (below, right), or giving a wink. There is no doubt about it, guests will get soaked while in this new water play area!

A variety of animals make sure guests are drenched, including these monkeys (below, left). We love the tribute to the Firehouse Five Plus 2 as clowns, including Disney Legend Ward Kimball in the center (below, right). The Firehouse Five Plus Two was a group of Disney animators who created a jazz band back in Walt Disney’s time.

This monkey in a tutu is sure to get you wet (below, left). The water is recirculated, and the sign here warns guests not to swallow it (below, right) – along with other rules.

Video #1 – Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak, Detailed Video Before Spray – Ward Kimball Reference, Storybook Circus – Today the Casey Jr Splash N Soak soft opened in the Storybook Circus area of new Fantasyland. Check out tributes to all the opening years of the Walt Disney World theme parks before the very wet water effects begin!. You can see a reference to the Firehouse Five Plus Two (with the center Firefighter resembling Ward Kimball), and the year each park opened – 1971, 1982, 1989, 1998. The Firehouse Five Plus Two was a group of Disney animators who created a jazz band.

When we first arrived, the water was not turned on. Within 20 minutes, Casey Jr. started spraying water (below, left), as did the giraffes, elephants, camels and monkeys (below, right). You can see a “71” in the lower right hand photo as well, which signifies the opening date of the Magic Kingdom. All of the parks are noted this way on different train cars.

Part of the theming includes this pole that is held together with a kerchief (below, left). A camel squirts on the kids (and adults) below it (below, right).

There is a cart nearby which sells hats, flip-flops, glasses and such (below, left). One of the items they were selling is this new Mickey Mouse umbrella hat that I tried on (below, right).

Video #2 – Casey Jr. Splash N Soak First Look w/ Water Effects – Storybook Circus, Magic Kingdom – Disney World – The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak was in soft opening mode today. The new water play area soaked young and old alike, with giraffes, camels, monkeys and elephants joining in the fun! We have two videos – one with water effects, one without (with more detail).

After the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak, we went to the new Tigger and Pooh meet and greet location, which was briefly Tigger’s Bouncy Place (below, left). It is right next to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride queue. Tigger waved to us as Pooh seems to have a laugh (below, right).

Video #3 – Winnie the Pooh New Meet & Greet Location Next To Attraction Queue w/ Tigger, Pooh, Fantasyland – Winnie the Pooh and Tigger now have a permanent meet & greet location next to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh queue. Today was the first day at this new area. The location is where the very short lived Tigger’s Bouncy Place was previously.
