Construction on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will hit a significant milestone at Magic Kingdom in the near future. Disney says that guests at Magic Kingdom will see the Tiana’s Foods water tower installed soon, though a specific date wasn’t announced.
In a news release Walt Disney World says "guests will soon be able to see" the Tiana’s Foods water tower at Tiana's Bayou Adventure.
Disney previously said the water tower would be installed "later this summer." Maybe install will be timed up with ESSENCE Festival on June 29? pic.twitter.com/upYRkZ4qiv

The story of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure takes place after The Princess and the Frog movie. In an effort to help her community, Tiana created an employee-owned food cooperative named Tiana’s Foods. The signature water tower will display the Tiana’s Foods name, which we think may confuse some for either the name of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure or for a restaurant that doesn’t exist.
Original concept art depicted a large boat on the original peak of Splash Mountain, but those plans have changed and the new “icon” of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is the water tower.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is currently scheduled to open at Magic Kingdom in late 2024.
