Disney enthusiasts, get ready to be swept off your feet! Walt Disney World has unveiled its highly anticipated addition, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, a dazzling makeover of the beloved Splash Mountain. Scheduled to welcome guests starting June 28, this reimagined ride is bound to become a staple must-do for visitors of all ages.

Drawing inspiration from the enchanting 2009 animated film “The Princess and the Frog,” Tiana’s Bayou Adventure invites riders into a world where they can join Princess Tiana and her friends on an exhilarating journey through the vibrant Louisiana bayou. Fans of the original Splash Mountain will notice that while the iconic log flume structure remains intact, the ride’s theme has been completely transformed, casting aside its controversial past.

For those unfamiliar, Splash Mountain debuted at Disneyland in 1989 and later made its way to Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland in 1992. Initially featuring characters from “Song of the South”—a film criticized for its outdated and racially insensitive portrayal of African Americans—the ride has been revamped to reflect a more inclusive and modern Disney experience.

Before the grand opening to the public, park employees and annual passholders get the exclusive first look at this whimsical adventure. It’s a testament to Disney’s commitment to evolving and celebrating stories that resonate with today’s audiences. While Disneyland in California is also prepping for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, it hasn’t set an opening date yet. Notably, Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland remains unchanged for now.
