Tiana’s Bayou Adventure construction continues as more Splash Mountain signage is removed, boards come down from holes carved in the attraction’s façade, and more. Workers also removed plastic sheeting and erected tarps in the flume below to protect themselves from the sun.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Construction: Façade
Boards that were covering the holes behind the scaffolding have come down. Interior metal supports can now be seen along the left side. Plastic sheeting near the top of the structure has been removed as well.
Boards previously covering several construction entrances have been removed.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure construction is in full swing, with construction work covering much of the attraction’s façade.
Stacked construction materials can still be seen behind the blue scrim.
Scaffolding and more blue scrim can be seen just to the side of the flume drop.
Scaffolding poles appear to be going even higher along the back of the attraction.
A large white tent was erected in the Splash Mountain flume, replacing some of the black tarps we saw previously.
A worker can be seen under the newly-erected tent.
Pink spray paint and wire mesh can also be seen on the rockwork.
Various cables and tarps are seen below the old track. Workers are able to stay under the tent they constructed to protect themselves from the Florida heat.
Metal stairs sit inside Splash Mountain’s flume for safe access while the workers complete the transformation.
A tarp covers construction equipment, and boards are stacked for later use. A hose, or possibly conduit, is coiled near the queue path as well.
A small piece of plywood covers part of the landscaping. This section is also roped off.
A crane can be seen high above the queue area. Black tarps still cover the queue barn windows.
Splash Mountain signage has been removed, and additional scaffolding and blue scrim have been erected near the attraction’s exit.
Splash Mountain closed permanently at Walt Disney World on January 23, 2023. It is rumored to close at Disneyland in May of this year, with Tiana’s Bayou Adventure set to replace the attraction in both locations in 2024.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure invites you to embark on a thrilling voyage, influenced by the beloved film, “The Princess and the Frog.” It picks up where the story concluded and includes many of the characters from the movie.
According to the official release, Disney states 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.” The story will feature Louis and a few other good friends enjoying zydeco, a musical fusion of rhythm and blues native to Louisana.
The new attraction will take place inside Tiana’s Foods, a co-op that helps provide food for the community. Founded in 1927 by Tiana, the co-op is located within a salt mine, where cultivators grow crops along the former path of Splash Mountain’s waters. Visitors will ascend to the co-op through a mill house that is constructed into the mountainside, enjoying the sights and sounds of the Louisiana bayou.
We’ve recently learned when a new, large set piece for this attraction will be installed.
