Here is the latest look at the progress on the former Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom as it is transformed into Tiana's Bayou Adventure.

More scaffolding has been installed this week, with crews working at the very top of the mountain.

Tiana's Bayou Adventure will open at Magic Kingdom in late 2024.

I think Bob C needs something to do. Maybe call him on the weekends?

They aren't putting gardeners up there weekly to weed and fertilize.....

Uh, aren’t most of the flowers on this thing artificial? Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but most of the vegetation on the mountain itself looks that way to me.

After going to TDL, that was something I was not ready to realize how much I missed it. Specifically at the Disneyland hotel that had some really pretty ones.

I was going to say, Disneyland, especially Critter Country, has some really great landscape work. I hope that the redwood trees and the Japanese maples survive the retheme!!!! :(

In Florida at WDW… not domestic parks. Disneyland landscape is still very impressive!

Maybe they were smart and went for eco friendly plants right out of the gate? Plus, it rains a lot more in Florida than it does in Southern California. I still cannot believe they went with something that looks like the dung heap from Jurassic Park (with flowers on top of it?? lol) instead of the cool treehouse boat design.

The interesting thing is that there is another post here in the rumors section about the downfall in the landscaping around Disney domestic parks…how long before those flowers get swapped out for more ecologically friendly plants and shrubs?

WDW's may look a little closer to this 3D rendering. Kind of grainy though. Flowers still present. But it's also worth noting some elements are shared and or different between the versions.

Are New Orleans salt mounds known for their flowers? 🙈sorry I couldn’t resist.

Agree. This is what the model shows.

The flowers on top are a nice, interesting, different touch.
