Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Coming to Disney Parks in Late 2024
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is the name of the new attraction replacing Splash Mountain which was announced today during ESSENCE Fest in New Orleans. The all-new adventure which will bring guests into the film “The Princess and the Frog” coming to Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland park in California in late 2024.
First announced in 2020, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will take guests on a musical adventure inspired by the story and characters from the fan-favorite film. Picking up where the film left off, guests will join Princess Tiana, Naveen and jazz-loving alligator Louis on an adventure through the bayou as they prepare to host a one-of-a-kind Mardi Gras celebration where everyone is welcome.
A panel moderated by Victoria Uwumarogie, senior lifestyle editor at ESSENCE Magazine, Charita Carter, executive producer of relevancy activations at Walt Disney Imagineering, Ted Robledo, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering and Stella Chase, daughter of the late Chef Leah Chase who inspired Tiana’s story provided guests with live art demonstrations provided by emerging talent from YAYA Arts Center.
Charita Carter shared, “in many ways, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is a love letter to New Orleans. Like the musical city that inspired this attraction, Tiana’s second act is about a community working in harmony to achieve something extraordinary. She reminds us of an immutable truth we can all relate to: ‘if you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way.’ And that’s a melody we can all sing along to!”
Ted Robledo added that “the joie de vivre that animates this region so brilliantly not only inspired Tiana’s journey, but also our team at Walt Disney Imagineering.”
We can't wait to share more updates relating to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
