More Faux Foliage & New Moss Added to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Salt Mine at Magic Kingdom

While visiting Magic Kingdom recently, we noticed that crews were continuing to dress the stripped-down facade of the former Splash Mountain attraction to create a new look for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Previously, the facade was stripped of any foliage to allow for crews to cut away at the facade in some places, and repaint the facade in most places. Now, it looks like Disney has turned the corner on the underlying structural work in most of the upper portions of the facade as new foliage and moss have been added to give the salt mine a bit more personality.

We’ll start with a wide shot of the facade and a sneak peek at some of the work taking place in the pool where the Tiana’s Foods water tower was installed last month.

An earlier article explored the demolition taking place in the outdoor queue, but this article will take a closer look at how the facade is progressing.

Other portions of the facade are awaiting foliage installation.

The higher you go on the facade, the more foliage has been installed.

On the north side of the facade, we can see various stages of the work in progress through a maze of scaffolding.

As always, keep checking back with us here at as we continue to bring you the latest news, photos, and info from around the Disney Parks!
