Rider Switch/Child Swap

What to Expect When You Experience
The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station has no lines or waiting – just come and go at your own leisure!
Guests wanting to experience the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station may remain in their wheelchair or ECV. Just beware, you will get wet!
The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station is the perfect place to take little ones to cool off from the hot Florida sun.
Casey Jr., the train from the classic 1941 movie Dumbo, has rolled into town and parked right in the middle of Storybook Circus at Magic Kingdom!
This Splash ‘n’ Soak Station has interactive water features in the forms of “steam” from the engine and sprays of water from the monkey, elephant, and camel figures in the train cars.
About every 10 minutes, the locomotive sounds and the misting from the engine increases.
Low benches surround the water play area so parents can relax and watch their kids have fun.
Be aware that you may still get wet, so protect those phones! Also, there is not much shade to offer relief from the sun.
Bring swimsuits or a change of clothes as your kids will be completely soaked after playing in the water. There are clean and spacious bathrooms nearby to make changing easy. There’s also a family bathroom.
This attraction may close during inclement weather.
Is Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station Kid-Friendly?
This is one of the ultimate kid-friendly attractions in the Magic Kingdom as little ones will love getting soaked!
While strollers are typically not allowed in queues and on most attractions at Disney World, that doesn’t apply here. But, just know that if you take your stroller through here, it will get wet. There are several designated stroller parking areas nearby if you prefer your stroller to stay completely dry.
When Walt Disney World’s 2012 Fantasyland Expansion was made public, the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station was not part of it. Instead, the area where it now resides was originally designated for Pixie Hollow, where guests could meet Tinkerbell and her pixie pals.
As the Fantasyland Expansion continued to develop, however, plans for Pixie Hollow were scratched and Storybook Circus expanded. In the new plans, Imagineers included a water play area based on Casey Jr., the train that transports the circus animals in the Disney classic 1941 animated film, Dumbo.
On June 15, 2012, the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station opened to guests. The land, however, officially opened on December 6, 2012.
The attraction was temporarily closed on February 11, 2019, for cleaning, repainting, and refurbishment.
It was closed again during the Magic Kingdom’s March 2020 COVID closure. Following another repainting, the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station reopened in July 2021.
Other Fun Details
- The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station replaced Donald’s Boat, another children’s water play area that was located in Mickey’s Toontown Fair before the expansion of Fantasyland.
- Each of the train cars has a number that corresponds with the opening year for each of the Walt Disney World parks: 71 for the Magic Kingdom, 82 for Epcot, 89 for Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM Studios), and 98 for Animal Kingdom.
- In the boxcar with a monkey and giraffes on top, look in the clouds behind the larger giraffe in the painting. There is a Hidden Mickey.
- Disneyland and Disneyland Paris have their own versions of Casey Jr., however, they are not water attractions but rather the Casey Jr. Circus Train. These attractions carry passengers through miniature scenes from Disney animated movies.
- At the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station there is a mural that advertises the Storybook Circus Clowns. The clowns in the mural are wearing fire hats with the number five on them. This is a tribute to The Firehouse Five Plus Two which was a Dixieland jazz band that was made up of members of the Walt Disney Studios’ animation department. Notable band members included Disney Legends Harper Goff, Ward Kimball, and Frank Thomas.
