Disney World Begins Removing Splash Mountain from Magic Kingdom

    Just a couple of days after closing permanently, Imagineers are hard at work on transforming Splash Mountain into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. This morning we visited Magic Kingdom and found more construction walls installed, along with the removal of directional signs for Splash Mountain. Larger props and signage remains in place for now. For a look back at Splash Mountain, check out our farewell post with more than 150 photos of the attraction.

    Here’s a look around, with before and after photos where possible.

    The first signage was removed from the Br’er Rabbit sign that used to say “Splash Mountain this way”.

    More walls are up along the bridge that used to overlook the briar pool.

    The splashdown area remains open for guests to see and likely won’t be changed much if at all for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

    Over at the attraction entrance, the main Splash Mountain sign remains in place, while tall walls have replaced the low walls we saw yesterday. This will allow Imagineers to make changes to the attraction entrance, including the removal of the character carvings.

    A crack in the construction walls allowed us a peek at the climactic 52.5-foot drop and we also spotted some Imagineers walking through the drained briar pool area.

    Elsewhere, directional signage for Splash Mountain has been removed.

    Splash Mountain has already been removed from the physical park maps, but it remains visible on the digital maps.
