Disney provided a brief update on Tiana's Bayou Adventure in a press briefing earlier today.


With construction on the Splash Mountain replacement moving at full pace, we will soon see the tiara-topped water tower added to the mountain.

Disney says that we should expect to see the new water tower installed later this summer.

Tiana's Bayou Adventure remains on target to open in late 2024 at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

Well, it was somehow the ugliest of three triplets... by a large margin.

If they wanted to be authentic to the time period nope Walmart opened in the 60s. Now the final drop into a Piggley Wiggley would be fine. Not going to lie the new attraction will look weird without something drawing your eyes to the drop. I'm assuming the water tower is going to be what Imagineering wants to draw our eyes to while walking around Tiana's Bayou Adventure.

To all those wishing for one last piece of Splash Mountain merchandise: This mystery pin pack was spotted at Celebrity 5 & 10 at Hollywood Studios. Brer Fox is still not guaranteed but for those who want something to remember the old attraction - it’s an option.

Princesses could be so cool if they just made them do more than stand around their rides and look pretty. Its insulting. Its like a really bad parody but its real. UGHHHH Corporations are so slow to realize their mistakes

If Disney cared about making this attraction accessible to its intended target audience it wouldn’t be building it in its most expensive and exclusive theme park

It seems the target audience is too short to ride this ride in the first place
