Disney has finally reported news on the ‘Princess and the Frog’ themed update coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, during ESSENCE Fest in New Orleans.. The ride will be called “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure” and will be opening late 2024.
Here is a bit more about the attraction:
“Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will take guests on a musical adventure inspired by the beloved 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. Along the way, guests will encounter familiar faces, make new friends and travel through the bayou to original music inspired by songs from the film as they are brought into the next chapter of Tiana’s story.”
Disney Parks Blog has a lot more information about the upcoming attraction and the people behind the redesign.
Sounds like when you plunge off falls and enter the area where the paddleboat is they are going to make that their Mardi Gras celebration where they will sing.
The response has been mixed for sure, but this change has been rumored for years. Nothing it going to stop it at this point.
