Splash Mountain usually has lots of activity from water splashing guests and riders to screams as people slide down the 52 1/2 foot drop. I noticed a quiet time between guest drops just after sunset and thought it would make an excellent Disney Pic of Week for Splash Mountain.

Look for Barrie’s and Lisa’s screams…er, photos on Thursday and Saturday.

  1. One of the best yet! I agree. A wonderful postcard picture. It would be nice to have more postcards of the attractions and not just the characters.

    Scott replies: Deb Wills likes to give out postcards of our photos at events if ever plan on coming to one she’s at.

  2. What a beautiful shot! I can’t “picture” (sorry) where you were when you took it. Did you have to use a zoom as well? This is the type of photo Disney should use for postcards – more people would buy them. Well done!

    Scott replies: Just walking past the attraction coming from Big Thunder. You can get lean over the wall and frame out the wall. I just noticed I didn’t add the Exif data (by the time you read this it will be there). It was taken at 18mm focal length so I leaned over a lot.
