Splash Mountain has become a wildly-popular staple of the US Disney parks and there's no reason why Tokyo should have messed with a tried-and-true formula. Except they did, to glorious effect. Unlike the other incarnations that stand alone, Tokyo's Splash is built into an extensive rock formation and has a highly-themed eatery attached. What a difference that make. This change really makes the area worthy of being deemed a "land" and more importantly, thematically makes it feel complete. Even the vegetation on the mountain itself is themed and much lusher than the US counterpart. The queue actually winds directly into the caverns of the mountain, where guests board their logs at the very core. The ride itself is surprisingly lengthy and, thankfully, chock full of dozens of animatronics that all work properly! Splash Mountain is a perfect example of Tokyo Disney's tendency to "plus" and based on the finished product, it's something that should be encouraged for every ride Disney produces.
