|'Pirates of the Caribbean' -- you go down the waterfalls, and you may experience some residual water splashing on you.|
Cool. That's fun to me.
'Splash Mountain' -- you get wet on that last drop, and sometimes in the other drops, and there are times when you can really get drenched.
Uh...okay. Not terrible.
'Grizzly River Rapids' at CA Adventure.
The entire purpose of those kinds of rides is to not just get a little wet, but to watch others in your raft get absolutely soaked to the skin.
Add me to the 'doesn't like to get wet and slosh around a theme park for the rest of the day' list.

|There is a big difference between water rides in Disney parks which are geared toward everyone and kiddie carwashes. The Storybook Circus area is a completely different animal from either Splash of any actual ride in a Disney Park. I can understand the concept of water rides. Storybook Circus isn't a water ride.|

|"Because it's fun"|
Kids also think cardboard boxes decorated with crayons are fun. Doesnt mean they should be in parks.

|Can I buy a beer in the Beast Restaurant and walk over and watch the kids in the water play area?|

Many small children can't ride Splash Mountain or the rafting rides. So, no, they're not necessarily for "everyone."
>>The Storybook Circus area is a completely different animal from either Splash of any actual ride in a Disney Park.<<
Isn't that neat? A variety of things to do. Some of them will appeal to you, others not, but that's why Baskin-Robbins makes 31 flavors, as my grandpa used to say (usually during a massive water fight vs. me and my dad. That's how we rolled.).
>>Storybook Circus isn't a water ride.<<
You're right. Circuses are no place for silly fun. Whatsamatter with those clowns?
>>Kids also think cardboard boxes decorated with crayons are fun. Doesnt mean they should be in parks.<<
I'm glad we never jump to extreme analogies in these theme park discussions. LOL

|I don't bemoan the addition of water play areas in the parks. I just don't get why Disney insists on sticking them anywhere whenever they can. In a kiddie circus setting? Sure. In the middle of Disneyland's Tomorrowland? Dumb.|
