The book’s cover art, illustrated by Olivia Duchess, bears a striking resemblance to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure concept art (below). Tiana is pictured sitting in a small boat in the bayou, with glowing fireflies around her. She’s wearing a variation of her new adventuring outfit.

The picture book’s description also bears similarities to the ride’s story:

A charming debut picture book from acclaimed actress, singer, and Disney Legend Anika Noni Rose, which shows Princess Tiana on a never-before-seen New Orleans adventure!

After traveling all winter, Tiana and Naveen are back in New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras. Tiana wants everything to be just right, putting the finishing touches on their party favors and parade float.

But then she gets an unexpected letter from Naveen’s parents, the king and queen of Maldonia. They’ve decided to join the celebration!

Determined to make it the best Mardi Gras ever, Tiana sets out on a new adventure with some old friends to find the perfect ingredients for a special addition. But soon she finds that perfect might not be the goal… and she may already have all she needs.

And here is the description for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure:

In the bayou, Princess Tiana is getting ready to throw a big party, but there’s been a bit of a mix-up between Prince Naveen and Louis. Uh oh — the princess suddenly finds herself in need of a band. We previously shared that all-new Disney characters were being created for this attraction and that’s where the critters come in. Even with the richest roux for your gumbo and the most delicious beignets, a true Mardi Gras celebration isn’t complete without music. We’ll follow Tiana and Louis into the bayou in a last-minute search for this essential missing ingredient for her party — musical critters! 

In both, Tiana is searching for a special ingredient for her Mardi Gras party. We know Tiana is searching for musical critters on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, and “Tiana’s Perfect Plan” suggests she’s also trying to impress Naveen’s parents.

The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released on October 22, 2024 — after Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens at Magic Kingdom this summer. The ride will open at Disneyland Park in the fall or winter.
