Splash Mountain is now closed permanently at Magic Kingdom to become Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Construction walls around the attraction feature references to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, and some new theming has been added to them.
The brown construction walls resemble crates. The large “stamps” already on the walls are for the Southern Dome Salt Company, referencing the backstory for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
New stamps read “please keep dry” and “Louisiana.” “The Princess and the Frog,” and consequently Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, is of course set in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Splash Mountain was also removed from Magic Kingdom maps, with a logo for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure over the artwork.
Two Splash Mountain pressed pennies machines have been moved to new locations and are still accessible to guests. Laughin’ Place signage was removed from the nearby play area. Splash Mountain references have also been removed from the Walt Disney World Railroad and the Liberty Square Riverboat.

Disney says that in the upcoming attraction, guests will “join Princess Tiana and jazz-loving alligator Louis during Mardi Gras season as they prepare to host a one-of-a-kind celebration for the people of New Orleans.” It’s scheduled to open in late 2024.
