Disney Unveils Opening Season for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has set the stage for an enchanting summer, announcing the opening season for its newest attraction, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

Replacing the beloved Splash Mountain, this immersive experience draws inspiration from the vibrant culture of New Orleans and the cherished film The Princess and the Frog.

Travel enthusiasts and Disney fans alike eagerly anticipate this magical addition’s debut to the Florida theme park resort.

While the official date for the opening has yet to be announced, it is expected to be in late 2024.

Exciting features and cutting-edge technology await guests

According to Disney’s recent announcement on Travel and Leisure, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure promises various exciting features and technological wonders.

Using advanced technology similar to that in Hong Kong Disneyland’s World of Frozen, the attraction will feature dozens of new audio-animatronics, bringing beloved characters to life.

New attraction takes deeper dive into Princess Tiana’s story

The reimagined log-flume-style attraction at Magic Kingdom Park will pick up where the 2009 film left off, offering guests a deeper dive into Princess Tiana’s narrative.

Before heading down the bayou, visitors will find themselves in a French Quarter-inspired queue, where the delicious scent of freshly fried beignets wafts through the air.

Once aboard, guests will join Princess Tiana, Louis, and other beloved characters as they prepare for their first Mardi Gras performance.

Guests to expect both old and new characters

During the ride, guests will meet a delightful array of new characters, described as a “whole swampful of new neighbors with friendly critters,” each showcasing their musical talents.

Anika Noni Rose returns as Princess Tiana’s voice, joined by Bruno Campos as Prince Naveen, Jenifer Lewis as Mama Odie, and Michael-Leon Wooley as Louis, enhancing the experience with authenticity and charm.

New music in partnership with industry icons

Disney has been steadily revealing details about Tiana’s Bayou Adventure since the closure of Splash Mountain, building excitement among fans.

The attraction promises new original music in collaboration with industry icons PJ Morton and Terence Blanchard, blending jazz, zydeco, and more.

Furthermore, the iconic five-story drop, a Splash Mountain hallmark, blends seamlessly into the ride’s narrative, drawing screams of excitement from riders.

Travelers urged to meet all requirements for a seamless Disney adventure

As excitement builds for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, international visitors planning their trip should secure the necessary travel authorizations, such as the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

ESTA streamlines the entry process into the U.S., allowing citizens of Visa Waiver Program countries to travel for tourism or business without traditional visas, offering convenience and efficiency.
