Other than the summer of 2024, Disney remained tight-lipped for months regarding an exact opening date for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. However, recently it was announced that it will open on June 28.

Before the official opening, Disney will give various people a chance to preview Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

This will include Cast Members, DVC Members, D23 Gold Members, and Annual Passholders. With previous new Disney attractions, there’s been a longer time between the opening date announcement and the actual opening. It will be interesting to see the timing of these previews.

What Does This Mean to You?

Unfortunately, if you’re an Annual Passholder and aren’t able to go for a preview, you may be disappointed on Opening Day.

Keep your eyes posted here on our Kenny the Pirate blog because we’ll release news if they open back up. However, if you want to be one of the first guests to experience this fun new theming, try to sign up for an AP preview.
