Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station
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. Part of the Fantasyland expansion project, Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station opened in June 2012 in the area of the theme park that used to be Mickey's Toontown Fair. This new attraction replaced Donald's Boat, another children's water play area that was located in the same section of Magic Kingdom.
Guests riding the Walt Disney Railroad and exiting at the Fantasyland station will see Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station as soon as they step off the train. Others who make their way into Storybook Circus from the front of Fantasyland will need to walk straight to the back to find the water play area.
Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station offers young guests a way to cool off on a hot Florida day with interactive water features that come in the forms of "steam" from the engine and sprays of water from the monkey, elephant and camel figures.
About every 10 minutes, Casey Jr. begins his stationary journey, and guests will notice the locomotive sounds and the misting from the engine increase as he reaches his destination.
Two of the boxcars have been separated from the Casey Jr. engine and sit across from the train on either side, creating paths for guests to travel through the water. The entire area is themed to resemble the turntable that trains use to enter and exit a roundhouse.
Low benches surround the water play area so parents can take a break while watching their kids have fun. Because the nearby trees are so young, there is not much shade yet to offer relief from the sun.
Bring swimsuits -- or at least a change of clothes -- if your kids want to experience Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station. Just like the name indicates, they will be completely soaked after playing in the water. The adjacent brand-new bathrooms, which are modeled after a roundhouse, are clean and spacious and make changing easy. There's also a family bathroom, which is a good alternative for some parents.
The engine on Casey Jr. is surrounded by a metal fence to keep children from climbing into the front seat, which looks pretty inviting. Be sure to keep an eye on youngsters because they could easily slip when attempting to get a closer look by scaling the fence.
Characters are housed in Pete's Silly Sideshow across from the Dumbo attraction. Choose a path to greet either Donald Duck and Goofy or Minnie Mouse and Daisy, each playing his or her own unique role at the circus and wearing a new costume. You can meet The Astounding Donaldo, the most charming of snake charmers; The Great Goofini, circus stuntman extraordinaire; Minnie Magnifique, a Parisian poodle trainer; and Madame Daisy Fortuna, a mysterious gypsy fortuneteller.
Storybook Circus has three locations for food, two of which are located in the Big Top tents. In the tent that houses the FastPass machines for Dumbo the Flying Elephant, guests will find hot dogs, hamburgers, pretzels and beverages. In Big Top Souvenirs, guests can watch baked goods and sweets being made before their eyes. Look for specialty cupcakes, including Dumbo, cotton candy and caramel corn varieties.
Finally, the Storybook Treats snack cart along the walkway to Mad Tea Party offers sundaes, ice cream, shakes, floats and beverages.
Casey Jr. Railroad Mercantile is a nearby cart with supplies that could be useful for the water play area. It sells towels, water shoes, sunscreen, hats and more. It does NOT sell swimsuits.
For other goods, Big Top Souvenirs is the place to shop while you are visiting Storybook Circus. The store offers a wide selection of merchandise for kids and adults, much like the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. The front displays are reserved for Dumbo merchandise -- various plush, mouse ears, T-shirts, plates, mugs and children's clothes. There is limited merchandise specific to the other attractions, including a Storybook Circus T-shirt.
Each of the colorful train cars has a number that corresponds with the opening year for each of the Walt Disney World parks:
71 -- Magic Kingdom
82 -- Epcot
89 -- MGM (now Hollywood Studios)
98 -- Animal Kingdom
In the boxcar with a monkey and giraffes on top, there is a Hidden Mickey image in the giraffe painting. Look in the clouds behind the larger giraffe to see the classic three-circle icon.
Disneyland and Disneyland Paris have their own versions of Casey Jr., but they are much different attractions. In those parks, Casey Jr. Circus Train carries passengers through miniature scenes from Disney animated movies.
Casey Jr. is a reference to Casey Jones, the famed railroad engineer who died in 1900 in a train collision .
Although the tender engine is male, Casey Jr. has been voiced by women in his animated representations. Currently, Cathy Cavadini fills that role.
The second float in the Main Street Electrical Parade shows Goofy driving Casey Jr., who pulls a drum with the parade logo.
