Disney Gossip: Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe Closing for Tiana-Themed Restaurant

We are hearing gossip around the internet that with the refurbishment of Splash Mountain to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure that a fan-favorite restaurant might be closing for a refurbishment and retheme as well.

Rustle up some grub at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in the Magic Kingdom! Tell tall tales over chicken fajitas, southwestern salad and the bacon cheeseburger—all before riding off into the sunset to the taste of sweet treats like mini churros with dipping chocolate.

The gossip is that Pecos Bill will be closing for refurbishment so that it can be rethemed to a New Orleans Style Restaurant sorta like how the French Market at Disneyland will be Reimagined into Tiana’s Palace.

Not only will Pecos Bill Cafe go under the Disney Knife but also Golden Oak Outpost is rumored to be transitioned over to a Princess and the Frog eatery serving up Tiana’s Famous beignets.

With the close proximity of these 2 eating establishments to the new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure this Disney Gossip seems possible. Not to mention the signage on the outside of Splash Mountain says Tiana’s Foods which seems like it might be a hint towards some sort of restaurant coming.

I for one would love to see Tiana take over Pecos Bills. I guess I am a little bitter when Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe got rid of the toppings bar many years ago.


Disney should just turn Frontierland into Tiana’s Land and make a clean sweep of the whole area. I am kidding of course but changing a couple of quick service spots near Tiana’s does make sense.

For now, chalk this up to Disney Gossip there is plenty of time for Disney to announce a new Tiana-themed restaurant considering the refurbishment of Splash Mountain is not expected to be done till the end of 2024.

What do you think about the Disney Gossip of Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe Closing? Would you like to see a Tiana-themed restaurant take its place?
