Getting soaked on an attraction at Walt Disney World is refreshing and funny when you’re expecting it, but what happens when you’re on an experience and don’t know that there’s a chance that you may get wet?

Attractions that you Can Get Soaked On Disney World

Let’s start out with the gimmie attractions, ie the ones where Disney has set up a retail location at the exit where they sell towels.

It’s in the name…you will encounter a mountain that you may get splashed on.

See above…there’s a river that has rapids. Expect to get drenched!




With any boat ride that has a drop, there’s a chance that you’ll get soaked by the splash-back of the ride vehicle impacting a still body of water. We call this “Pick your Seat Carefully”

There’s only one spot where you have the potential of getting soaked, and its just after you see the mist screen of Davy Jones before you take the plunge. If you’re sitting anywhere that doesn’t have another guest blocking you…expect to get a little wet. With one drop though, it’s not too bad AND it’s at the beginning of the ride, so you’ve got another 8-10 minutes to dry off before disembarking.

I think this attraction has it out for me, because I’ve riden Kali River Rapids AND Splash Mountain without getting as wet as I have on Frozen Ever After.

Call it bad luck, but know that if you’re sitting in the front row OR the second row on the outside seat…the splashback will come into the boat and you’ll get drenched! #LetItGo right?



Although the Backside of Water is a highlight, very seldomly will you get wet from the attraction itself. There are a few features that can offer a sense of excitement, like the Elephant Pool, but you should be fine!

The water stays in the channels….no chance of getting wet.

Unless you’re trying to escape the boat because the song is driving you nuts and you can’t last 10 minutes, just relax and enjoy the ride.

This happened to me on my last trip to Disney, so be prepared. Watch out for the camels because, surprise surprise, they spit!

3D effects are hilarious, but when they bring senses to life…you’re bound to get a little wet. This one isn’t too bad, but know beforehand that you may have to dry off a little after a classic gag from Fozzie Bear.

There’s a mist section as you’re climbing the mountain through an explosion, but it’s less about getting soaked and more about getting hit with that random drop of larger than normal water.


Just remember that experiencing an attraction at Disney World is all about expectations. There’s a reason why I always wear a poncho when riding Splash Mountain and get so frustrated when I get soaked on Frozen Ever After…knowledge is power:)
