Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Coming to Disney Parks in Late 2024
Disney Parks announced the name and launch year of the new attraction inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film “The Princess and the Frog”: Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
The attraction will feature an all-new adventure immersing guests in a reimagined version of Princess Tiana’s world. Beginning in late 2024, guests at Disneyland Park in California and Magic Kingdom Park in Florida will have the opportunity to experience the magic inspired by the rich culture, art, and history of the New Orleans community.
First announced in 2020, 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 movie 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.
The announcement was shared during ESSENCE Fest, where a panel of Imagineers discussed how the region’s culture inspired the attraction before guests were treated to a musical performance by the voice of Mama Odie, Jenifer Lewis.
