The scaffolding is down and part of the exterior of Tiana’s Palace is visible! The large center balcony iron work is painted bright yellow, almost gold. The smaller balconies have been refreshed too but with a dark green paint. Lights have been hung and new striped awnings are in place too. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/06/18/first-look-at-new-tianas-palace-restaurant-emerges/

New light posts have been installed outside of the Adventureland Treehouse. It looks like there are two styles of posts that have been installed. One looks like its been made out of bamboo while the other looks to have some decorative iron. It may sound odd but since the treehouse is right at the intersection of two lands, its a fun detail! – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/06/photos-lampposts-installed-outside-adventureland-treehouse-in-disneyland/

The two sold out, Pride Nite events were this past week and they looked like a ton of fun! Ordinary Adventures has a great video with highlights from their experience in the first night.
