Guests visiting Magic Kingdom this afternoon will spot a crane on site for the transformation of Splash Mountain into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. The crane, which is situated in a narrow backstage area between the iconic facade and the show building, appears to be delivering scaffolding material to a portion of the track just after Slippin’ Falls and the entrance to the indoor portion of the ride. Here’s a look at the scene this afternoon, with plywood being the transport material of choice.
Elsewhere, crews are cutting into the facade as seen here in the splashdown area at the bottom of the drop. Spray paint indicates further cutting is planned. The pace of work here seems to be much quicker than we’ve seen with recent Walt Disney World projects, perhaps signaling that Disney realizes just how important this project is to the company and Magic Kingdom capacity.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will open in 2024 at Walt Disney World.
