The flagstone pathway completed over the past few weeks in the exterior queue area of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Magic Kingdom has opened to guests.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Flagstone Pathway Opens
The new pathway leads under the Frontierland train station. Construction walls now block the pathway that was previously open right next to the station’s stairs.
Right now, the only thing behind the train station for guests to visit is a restroom.
During our last few construction updates, we noticed crews putting up new construction walls, suggesting the sidewalk would open soon.
The flagstone sidewalk is lined with red bricks and wrought iron railings.
It seems to draw inspiration from New Orleans streets.
The wrought iron fences are purple with golden handrails and golden orbs on the tallest supports.
The smaller poles have bronze pinecone-shaped fence toppers.
Purple and gold are major colors during Mardi Gras celebrations. Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is set during Mardi Gras, as Tiana sets out to throw a party.
The construction walls feature the same Tiana’s Foods signs and posters as the walls in front of the attractions. There are also stamps for the Southern Dome Salt Company.
In the Tiana’s Bayou Adventure backstory, Tiana’s Foods operates out of an old salt mine.
Lanterns hang periodically along the construction walls.
The walls are right behind the wrought iron fences, hiding unfinished areas of the extended outdoor queue.
Not all of the railings have extra hand bars.
There are also some construction boxes where themed elements have not yet been installed, including inside planters.
At the end of the flagstone pathway is a rectangle of red pavement.
The red is followed by the old brown pavement with the occasional embedded rock.
With the construction walls moved, we can get a little bit closer to the queue’s barn, but it’s still blocked off.
One section of the walls is connected by brown scrim.
This week, we got our first look at the inside of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, which is scheduled to open in late 2024.
