Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Construction Update for May 2023

Tiana's Bayou Adventure Construction Update for May 2023

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Construction Update for May 2023. Splash Mountain is no more at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. All signs have been removed and it appears that all the theming for the old classic attraction is now gone also. Bring on the Southern Salt Dome Co. and all the work that is happening right now, with our update for May 2023.

Previously, we had seen crews opening up giant holes in the facade and at the bottom of the drop. Now those holes have been filled in, and are now being painted. We had a chance to see some of the painting of the rock facade being done this morning.

Furthermore, Chickapin Hill is completely removed. Trees, grass, and theming of the old mountain are now gone. With the tree that use to decorate the top of the mountain and the stump that was on the side being removed, it now leaves a blank canvas for the Imagineering team to come in and start adding the new Tiana’s Bayou exterior theming.

At a young age, Tiana developed a deep passion for cooking and began to dream of one day owning her own business. Her father, James, taught her that good food brings folks together. One of the most exciting parts of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is that we’re going to see where Tiana’s life has taken her following the success of Tiana’s Palace, a restaurant she had dreamed of owning and worked so hard to make come true.

Walt Disney Imagineering is creating an original, next-chapter story for Tiana. Within the attraction queue, guests will discover that she continues to grow her business with Tiana’s Foods – an employee-owned cooperative. Combining her talents with those of the local community, Tiana has transformed an aging salt mine and built a beloved brand.

The endeavor began when Tiana purchased the salt mine and the area surrounding the large salt dome it operated from. With the help of her mother Eudora, Naveen, Louis and fellow owners of the cooperative, Tiana revived the old salt mine and the surrounding land, growing a wide array of vegetables, herbs and spices for her recipes.

Picking up where that story left off, Tiana continues bringing people together with Tiana’s Foods, another treasured meeting place to spend time together and celebrate a diverse community. Tiana is also working with cooperative members to teach gardening and cooking to children of all ages, and inspiring other women to run successful businesses as the brand grows nationwide.
