Walt Disney Imagineering has filed a notice of commencement for “Project CY1899” at an address for Splash Mountain. The permit lists longtime builder Balfour Beatty Construction as the contractor and lists an expiration date of June 30, 2024 for the work. Balfour Beatty is a popular contractor of choice for Walt Disney World, having previously been listed on big projects such as the PLAY! Pavilion and other large-scale projects at Walt Disney World.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will replace Splash Mountain and pick up the story of Tiana and her friends just after the events of the movie. At the D23 Expo, Disney revealed changes to the previously announced storyline and plans when they unveiled the attraction model.
Disney has previously said that Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will open in late 2024 at Disney World and Disneyland.
