Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, Walt Disney World Resort’s newest attraction, has officially opened to all guests. Located in Frontierland in the Magic Kingdom, the attraction features dozens of new Audio-Animatronics figures, a foot-tapping soundtrack, a thrilling 50-foot drop and a celebration where everyone’s welcome.

Music is at the heart of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, inviting guests to sing along throughout the attraction thanks in part to musical critters, who play instruments made of natural materials found in the bayou. There is new, original music alongside favorite tunes from the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “The Princess and the Frog”, created in collaboration with award-winning artists PJ Morton and Terence Blanchard.

In addition to musical critters, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure welcomes talent voices from the film as they reprise their roles, including Jenifer Lewis as Mama Odie, Michael-Leon Wooley as Louis, and Anika Noni Rose as Princess Tiana.

As guests float through the cypress trees and Spanish moss of a beautiful Louisiana bayou, they will see some familiar faces as part of the dozens of entirely new Audio-Animatronics figures such as Princess Tiana, Louis and Mama Odie. The heart of Tiana’s story reminds guests that everyone has the potential to make their dreams a reality.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, which also opens later in 2024 at Disneyland Park in California, is the latest example of how Disney continues to turbocharge investment in its theme parks, leveraging its most popular stories to create unforgettable, immersive experiences for guests and give them more of what they love.

Following her success, Princess Tiana is hosting a party for the people of New Orleans during the Mardi Gras season of 1927, but there’s been a mix-up in the party preparations between Prince Naveen and Louis – no one booked a band! Tiana needs help finding musicians for tonight’s party! Among the cypress trees are musical critters with instruments made from found objects and natural materials, playing Zydeco, Rara and Afro-Cuban music. Tiana loves their sound; it’s just the ingredient she was looking for! With the talented critter bands booked for the big party, it’s time to hurry back out of the bayou – and luckily, Mama Odie knows a shortcut that will send guests speeding down to the celebration. Following a thrilling 50-foot drop, the logs roll into a New Orleans neighborhood soiree at Princess Tiana’s and Prince Naveen’s home! The party is full of new and familiar faces, musical critters, and a new, original song called “Special Spice’’ written and produced by award-winning musician PJ Morton and performed by Anika Noni Rose.
