|I have been completely soaked on Splash Mountain and had a few drops. I haven't been enough in winter, in enough seats, with different logs weights, to know... how wet does the average and the most wet person get in, let's say, January? I'm thinking it's just better to skip unless you have a poncho or a complete change of clothes available?|

|fyi .... January and February is Southern California's months for the most rain. |

|So my advice ... if you are going to go on - full poncho .. which you'll need anyway .. as those 2 months are So Cal's wettest months. |

|The ride will be the same. It's the people in the boat that might determine how wet you get. |
If you don't want to get wet, wear a poncho. But what's the fun in that? ;-P

|Made the mistake on going on front row at like 10pm in December. I will be bringing a poncho for my December trip for sure.|

|Yep, lived in So Cal for 22 years (annual pass only one year), and never worn a poncho at DL yet. I think this clinches it that we'll just avoid Splash for our winter trip. If it's raining enough to necessitate ponchos on our scheduled date I'm sure my siblings will cancel the whole thing and I'll have to follow suit.|

|I don't think a poncho would help much since you seem to get wetter more on your legs and sides (unless you're in the front seat). I would, at the very least, bring a dry pair of socks.|

That is exactly right! Unless you have a full length poncho .. with proper rain boots ... then count on walking around the park, afterward, in wet socks, wet shoes (inside!) ... and wet pants.
The smaller drops inside the main show building always do the most damage. ;) I've learned to place my arms flush against the top sides ... to act like a dam .. because of waters pouring in .. drenching my legs .. to my socks ..and inside my shoes.
The dip-drop into the laughing place ... will get you too!

|I did fine with a poncho and sat in the front row. A adult poncho does cover me pretty well and i lifted my legs up a bit. When i go i will try to make sure it is at least in the day time.|

|I usually like to sit in back, but they put me in front when I went solo last Dec. and I got wetter than I ever had before on that ride. It was the little nothin' drop underneath the critter on the sidecar that got me wettest! |
