Splash Mountain has officially closed forever at Magic Kingdom to become Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Splash Mountain references have been removed from the Walt Disney World Railroad and the Liberty Square Riverboat. Now the attraction’s pressed penny machines have been removed.
Walls are up beneath the Walt Disney World Railroad train station where a pressed penny machine had designs for both Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
A day before Splash Mountain closed, we saw guests lining up for the other pressed penny machine in Splashdown Photos.
Cast Members confirmed that the penny machines have been removed.
The nearby Laughin’ Place play area is still open.
Here is the penny machine as it appeared when it was first installed.
It had designs featuring the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad train, a vulture, Br’er Rabbit, and Mickey and Minnie.
Fans who still want a Splash Mountain souvenir can always check eBay for some Splash Mountain water.
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.
