Scaffolding has gone back up around the water tower as crews use these walkways to work on the recently added fake trees in the area.

The top of the “revived salt mine” now has a fresh coat of brown paint for the dirt, as well as green paint to represent the presumed moss of the rocks surrounding it.

The water mill at the front left of the attraction now has new green paint accents added to the beams in the center of the structure.

We can also get a good view of the newly painted mountaintop from the other side of the Frontierland train station.

Here you can really see the work being done to blend the mountains levels together through paint and greenery.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure picks up after the events of “The Princess and the Frog.” In 1927, Tiana founded the Tiana’s Foods co-ops, which is located in a salt mine, where cultivators grow crops along the waters. During Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, Tiana and alligator Louis venture into the bayou to find animal friends. They’re preparing a special Mardi Gras celebration for the people of New Orleans.
