We have surprising new details for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure with a rather confusing backstory for the attraction. Check out all of the details, photos, and more.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
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.”
All we know so far is that Disney plans to open the attraction in 2024, but with the D23 Expo more news is popping up. Take a look at the 3D model of the attraction, details about a new Tiana restaurant, and a brand new store as well.
When looking at this 3D Model for this upcoming retheme, a plaque describes the story behind the attraction. “Following the success of Tiana’s Palace, Tiana continued to grow her business with Tiana’s Foods–and employee-owned cooperative. She combined her talents with those of locals to transform an aging salt mine and built a beloved brand that bolstered neighboring communities.”
Kenny the Pirate made a good observation that this could help explain why the attraction is on a hill or the “salt mine.” At Walt Disney World, this still will not help explain how it is located next to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, though.
