Guests attending this D23 event will be able to attend “a specially curated presentation” by Walt Disney Imagineering, showcasing the research, collaboration, and creative development that is bringing Tiana’s Bayou Adventure to life at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Park. The offering is described as a “can’t-miss deep dive” into what guests can anticipate from the new attraction.

This presentation will include decades of stories on how the city made its mark on Walt Disney and countless Disney Parks, attractions, songs, and films, including those with haunted mansions and swashbuckling pirates.
