The Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station is an attraction in the Fantasyland section of Walt Disney World in Bay Lake, Florida.[2][3] Casey Jr is the train seen in the film Dumbo, where Dumbo, his mother, Mrs. Jumbo, and other circus animals travel on to the shows.[1] This attraction is a water play area across from the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride and The Barnstormer starring the Great Goofini. It is designed to look like it has actual animals in the train by having elephant trunks and giraffes that spray out water at young guests.[4] However, for over the years, the water attraction began to have its paint peeling off and some of the water effects stop functioning.[5] As a result, the attraction was temporarily closed on February 11, 2019 for some cleaning, repainting, and refurbishment.[6]
