We’ve known it was coming for quite some time, but now we know exactly when Disneyland’s Splash Mountain will be closing. The classic attraction will close on May 31st, meaning the last chance for guests to ride will be on May 30th.

  • Splash Mountain at Disneyland park will be closed starting May 31, 2023, as Disney begins the next phase of development for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
  • The classic attraction, which also closed at Magic Kingdom back in January, will be open for guests to enjoy one last time until May 30th.
  • Luckily, we have 4K video of the full attraction, which you can enjoy below:

More on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure:

  • Tiana’s Bayou Adventure builds on the story of Princess Tiana, a character whose pride and perseverance reminds us of a universal truth: within us lies the potential to make our dreams come true.
  • Walt Disney Imagineering is creating an original, next chapter story for Tiana, that takes place in Tiana’s Bayou Adventure after the events of The Princess and the Frog.
    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.
  • This multifaceted enterprise has turned the aging salt mine into a space that has come alive. Complete with a boutique farm and both a working and teaching kitchen, Tiana’s Foods is where Tiana and her colleagues create all sorts of new products that they are bringing to the world, including a line of original hot sauces.
  • Tiana wants to give a big thanks to her family and friends and the entire community for all the support they’ve given her by throwing an amazing party during Mardi Gras season. When it turns out there’s been a bit of a mix–up with the party preparations, Tiana invites us to meet her at Tiana’s Foods to help with the missing ingredient for the party.
  • When we arrive, we may see that Tiana spruced up the company’s facilities with vibrant art from local artists. Food for the party is being prepared and beignets are being loaded into crates for the celebration. All kinds of preparations are underway for the journey into the bayou with Tiana, along with new and familiar friends from the animated film.
  • 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.
  • Guests will also come face to face with Mama Odie, who reprises her role as the catalyst to the magic, as they ride the new attraction.
  • This all-new adventure will bring Disney Parks guests into Princess Tiana’s world like never before when the attraction opens in Disneyland park at Disneyland Resort and Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort in 2024.
