It’s not often that rides close in Disney World, but today, a popular Magic Kingdom attraction is permanently closing.
Splash Mountain is closing to become Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, a new ride based on Disney’s The Princess and the Frog film. We saw some massive crowds at the ride earlier this weekend and we’ve been in Magic Kingdom today monitoring the crowds — so what are the wait times like for Splash Mountain on its closing day?
Yesterday, Splash Mountain had the highest wait time in the park at 120 minutes.
When Magic Kingdom opened at 9AM, the wait time was already up to 90 minutes.
By 9:45AM, the wait time was 145 minutes — over two hours.
Just five minutes later, the posted standby wait time was 150 minutes.
By 11AM, the wait time was 200 MINUTES!!! That’s over three hours!
Disney has announced that Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will open in late 2024. We’ll be watching the Splash Mountain area once it closes to bring you construction updates on the new The Princess and the Frog-themed ride.
Want to say “goodbye” to Splash Mountain? We’ve got you covered with the new Briar Patch Band Tee now online.
If you’re looking to celebrate Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, the Tiana Tee is also available online.
