Tiana’s Bayou Adventure has received a full ride POV video from Disney Parks that takes you on a trip through the replacement attraction for Splash Mountain before it opens at Walt Disney World on June 28, 2024, and later in the year at Disneyland.

You can check out the full ride POV video for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure right here, which includes the revamped iconic 50-foot drop from Splash Mountain, a look at the Audio-Animatronics of new and old characters, a listen to some of the songs guests will hear alongside the brand-new track ‘Special Spice’ by PJ Morton and sung by Princess Tiana voice actress Anika Noni Rose, and much more.

“Join Princess Tiana and jazz-loving alligator Louis on their journey through a shimmering bayou as they prepare for a spirited celebration during Mardi Gras season,” Disney Parks’ description of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure reads. “Along the way, you’ll see familiar faces and make new friends as you’re brought into the next chapter of Tiana’s inspiring story.”

While the returning characters include Tiana, Louis, Prince Naveen, Louis, Mama Odie, and more, Disney has also created a whole bunch of new critters that will appear in the ride and help Tiana throw the greatest Mardi Gras party the world has ever seen. These include Byhalia the Beaver, Gritty the Rabbit, Beau the Opossum, Apollo the Raccoon, Rufus the Turtle, Timoléon the Otter, Octavia the Bobcat, Claude the Louisiana Black Bear, Felipe the Frog, and plenty of others. And yes, there will be merch of these new adorable critters to buy at the new Critter Co-Op store in Frontierland.

There will also be plenty of ways to celebrate the delicious treat known as Beignets, as they will be available on opening day at Golden Oak Outpost and The Friar’s Nook, and their smell will be piped through the queue as you wait to ride the attraction.

Speaking of the attraction queue, you’ll be able to hear a radio program on a New Orleans station playing jazz versions of such favorites from The Princess and the Frog like ‘Down in New Orleans,’ ‘Ma Belle Evangeline,’ and more. Additionally, guests will be able to hear a rendition of Louis Armstrong’s ‘Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans’ by Leah Chase Jr., who is the daughter of one of the inspirations for The Princess and the Frog.

If all of this isn’t helping with the wait for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure that will end on June 28, be sure to check out where The Princess and the Frog and Tiana rank on our lists of the best Disney animated movies and Disney Princesses, respectively.
