We have a name and opening timeframe!
Splash Mountain retheme
Back in June of 2020, Disney announced that a major reimagining of Splash Mountain would happen. This attraction, based on the controversial 1946 film “Song Of the South,” has been a fan favorite since it debuted in 1989.
The attraction will begin where the film leaves off; with the final kiss. We’ll join Princess Tiana and her trumpet playing alligator friend Louis “on a musical adventure.”
Disney recently shared that this process will take some time, but they are making great progress on music, characters, and stories. You can read that interview HERE.
They also shared some artwork for the attraction! In the concept art, you can see Tiana, Naveen, and Louis in their boats traveling along the bayou. It definitely looks like this will be an easy transition with what is currently Splash Mountain with the various scenes and drops.
All we know so far is that Disney plans to open the attraction in 2024, but Disney just shared some new information!
Last month, Disney shared that they would share more information about the retheme of Splash Mountain into a Princess and the Frog attraction.
“While timing has not been determined, we look forward to sharing more details during Essence Festival of Culture in New Orleans in July.”
Disney is listed as an official sponsor of the festival, and it runs from June 30 to July 3.
During the festival, Disney just announced the attraction will be named “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure” and will open in late 2024.
We still do not have a closing date for Disney World or Disneyland.
“Tiana’s Bayou Adventure” will open in late 2024.
