Disney enthusiasts, get ready for an enchanting blend of magic and adventure as the new “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure” takes the spotlight! This upcoming attraction, a revamp of the beloved Splash Mountain, promises to expand the Princess and the Frog universe in ways we’ve never seen before. Disney Imagineers have ingeniously crafted the ride to bridge the gap between the film and the anticipated Tiana TV series, ensuring fans continue the journey alongside our favorite New Orleans princess.

Set roughly a year after the events of The Princess and the Frog, the ride immerses guests in Tiana’s world as she successfully runs her acclaimed restaurant, Tiana’s Palace. But that’s not all – Tiana has also launched a new venture, Tiana’s Foods, rallying the local community to build a thriving, employee-owned brand. Ted Robledo, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, reveals that the ride explores Tiana and Louis the alligator’s lively quest to gather animal musicians for an upcoming Mardi Gras festival. It’s a delightful micro sequel that fans won’t want to miss!

The magic doesn’t end there. Carmen Smith, Disney Parks’ senior vice president of creative development, has exciting news: Tiana’s story will continue to unfold in a new Disney Plus series. Announced along with other beloved Disney properties like Moana, the Tiana series has faced several delays but is still on track with Joyce Sherri as the showrunner. The show is set to explore Tiana’s ascent as crown princess in Maldonia while staying true to her New Orleans roots, bringing fans deeper into her world of royalty and culinary excellence.

It’s intriguing to ponder how the ride’s storyline might influence the show. While Imagineers maintain that “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure” is a self-contained narrative focusing on Tiana’s business exploits, the synergy between Disney Imagineering and Walt Disney Animation Studios hints at a cohesive, expanded universe that respects Tiana’s journey as both a business mogul and a princess.
