Additional tarp has gone up around Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in Disneyland Park as the attraction’s crew continues work. The ride is scheduled to open later this year. Though there is no set date, it will likely be sometime after summer 2024, when its Walt Disney World counterpart opens.

Tarp was added to the left side of the millhouse, seen at the bottom left in the above photo. On the Florida version of the attraction, which is a few months ahead on construction, the front of the millhouse was painted green, and a tree was added. It is likely this area will get a similar makeover, as green foliage plays a major part in the overall aesthetic of the finished exterior.

Behind the scaffolding, you can get a good look at the rock work of the mountain. Once red, it is being stripped down to a gray tone, and will soon begin to get covered in lush greenery to fit in with the Louisiana bayou theme of the attraction.

Scaffolding was added around the Tiana’s Foods water tower the week of February 12, signifying that this area may too begin to receive its foliage. At Magic Kingdom, the area below the top of the water tower is nearly completely covered in greenery.

The bottom portion of the water tower has been covered in tarp, as has the rock work surrounding it. A crew member was working in this area during our visit.

The entire front entrance area of the attraction remains covered in scrim, with scaffolding directly behind it.

Earlier this month, Disney revealed the height requirements for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Guests much be 40″ (102 cm) or taller to ride the attraction. This is the same height requirement as Splash Mountain, the former attraction that Tiana’s Bayou Adventure has taken the place of.

Holes in the rock work on the ground level that we saw crew workers working inside of earlier this month have been closed off with metal cage wiring, signifying that that stage of the work is completed.

The holes could soon be covered with rock work. In the background, you can see poles used for the scaffolding around the structure.
