We saw construction work all across Splash Mountain during our recent Magic Kingdom trip as the log flume attraction is turned into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
At the bottom of the ride’s drop, crew members have been working beneath the Frontierland bridge within the trough.
This area is also where we’ve seen holes cut into the rock façade.
Two crew members were standing on the track when we passed by.
They were next to the rockwork covered with a tarp where holes have been cut into it.
Scaffolding is within the tunnels and across the flume to act as a walkway for crew members.
While we were watching, they lifted the tarp to take a look at the holey rockwork. The holes were likely cut to give access to the attraction’s mechanical system.
We also saw crew members near the top of Splash Mountain.
They were pulling some of the fake grass down from the façade.
Scaffolding and blue scrim surround some of the ride’s more dangerous edges to keep crew members safe while working.
These crew members were in harnesses attached to the mountain.
On the ground, gardeners were working near the entrance to the attraction.
The garden work is likely just standard horticulture rather than related to the refurbishment.
Some Splash Mountain signage remains at the attraction entrance and in the queue.
We saw crew members sweeping up the queue sidewalks.
Birdhouses were removed from the queue and from a tree on the ride.
These doors were closed, but we could hear some loud construction work happening out of view.
