Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

Disney is re-theming the ride to give it a Princess and the Frog theme. When it reopens, it’ll be called Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

The ride will officially open in 2024

On a recent trip, we spotted the new “Tiana’s Foods” water tower up in front of the ride. We’ll keep an eye out for more updates.

Disney World Hotel Refurbishments

There are several construction projects happening at Disney World hotels right now. Over at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds, the Trail’s End Restaurant is closed. When it reopens this summer, this spot will no longer be a table service restaurant. Instead, it’ll be “a marketplace concept with expanded quick service options.”

Redirecting guests

There’s also lots of construction happening at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, as a new DVC tower is being built. You might see or hear construction if you’re staying at that hotel.
