1. Casey Jr. Splash n’ Soak Station
There are a lot of elements of Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland that I find questionable, but the water play area called “Casey Jr. Splash n’ Soak Station” is the worst.

Bricks were only promised to be maintained for 10 years and we’re now five years past that date. Most of the pathways are now showing their age.
