A former Disney Cast Member recalled a time when she caught Guests performing a sexual act on Splash Mountain.
The Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort both feature several slow-moving rides that offer dark enough conditions to allow Guests to cave to certain temptations, and it appears that Disney’s soon-to-be-retired log flume ride is a spot Guests use to get away with some inappropriate behavior.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Cast Members explained the situation, with one even having to tell a Guest not to expel certain “bodily fluids” into the waterway after an “overly magical moment.”
“It happens on any attraction that’s dark enough and slow enough for a little action,” a cast member says, amused that visitors are still surprised to learn that rides have video cameras for safety purposes. Midride souvenir shots are rigorously screened to expunge any overly magical moments. “I can’t believe I’m saying this,” ” says Kerstin Cote-Crosson, a former attraction operator who’d watched the cameras, “but I once had to kindly ask a young woman on Splash Mountain not to spit bodily fluids into the flume.”
The former Cast Member failed to disclose whether or not the Guests in question were asked to leave the Park after the ride ended.
It should be noted that Disney Parks is still a family-friendly place, and it expressly prohibits any sexual actions from being performed in public.
It states on its website, “Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior.”
Splash Mountain is set to be closed at Disneyland and Walt Disney World to be rethemed as the Princess and the Frog-themed attraction, “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.”
