Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Crews Prepare to Install Queue Signs at Magic Kingdom

Crew members are preparing to install wait time and Lightning Lane signs at the Tiana’s Bayou Adventure entrance in Magic Kingdom.

The entrance to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is located under the Frontierland train station. Crew members have been working on the marquee during our past few visits. It features horizontal wood paneling.

On Tuesday morning, two crew members were installing frames for two signs. The signs themselves have not yet been installed but there are rectangular holes for them. We’ve seen electrical wiring inside the holes.

The signs will likely display the wait time and Lightning Lane return time.

The sign frames are purple, green, and pale yellow — the color scheme of Mardi Gras and the new attraction. They feature the same lily flower motif as other signs.

We expect the marquee will also have a larger sign featuring the attraction name.

On the other side of the station, lanterns have returned to the wall facing the train platform. We previously saw a crew member working on the wiring in this wall.

New signage was also recently installed inside the main doors of the barn. These signs warn of the ride’s 50-foot drop.
