The colossal scope and ambition for the upcoming Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom is coming into full view today, as several major announcements were made regarding the content that will comprise the storytelling and ambience for this ride.
17 original audio-animatronic characters will be featured, along with multiple Tiana audio-animatronics throughout the experience and the appearance of other recognizable characters from the “Princess and the Frog” film — including Louis and Mama Odie. Prince Naveen’s brother, Ralphie, is among some of the new humans to appear, though this new ensemble will also be featuring countless animals native to the Louisiana landscape.
The queue and attraction music is being arranged by award-winning artists PJ Morton and Terence Blanchard, who will mix classic songs from the movie with New Orleans classics and original compositions. The scent of beignets is also set to be pumped throughout the queue, along with original, new animated content from Walt Disney Animation Studios to enhance the atmosphere.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Arriving in 2024
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure takes place after the events of “The Princess and the Frog.” The attraction will follow Tiana venturing into the bayou to find animal friends. She’ll be hosting a party for the people of New Orleans, but missing a special ingredient. Some of the original cast will be providing their voices to the attraction, including Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Bruno Campos (Naveen), Michael Leon Wooley (Louis), and Jennifer Lewis (Mama Odie).
After the recent closure of the original Splash Mountain at Disneyland, construction signs are already up, and it officially means Splash Mountain is completely gone in the United States. Both the Florida and California versions are set to open sometime in 2024.
