June Opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Walt Disney World

The highly anticipated attraction opening at Disney World in 2024 is Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, which will replace the Splash Mountain attraction in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The exact opening date for this exciting new ride has been announced – June 28. This is great news for Disney enthusiasts who are looking forward to planning their summer trips accordingly.

Guests with a Walt Disney World annual pass or Disney Vacation Club membership who are eager for a sneak preview of the ride will have to wait until May 14, when additional information on the preview process will be released. In the meantime, anticipation is building for the grand opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

The new ride will retain the log flume and its thrilling five-story drop from the former Splash Mountain but will feature a completely new theme, setting, and storyline inspired by “The Princess and the Frog” movie. Set during Mardi Gras season, guests can expect a bayou filled with music, magic, and new friends, including a raccoon, rabbit, and beaver. Additionally, familiar characters from the film will be represented as all-new animatronics, voiced by the original stars like Anika Noni Rose as Princess Tiana.

As guests embark on this immersive experience, they can look forward to new music and beloved hits from “The Princess and the Frog.” The scent of frying beignets in the attraction’s queue will add to the immersive French Quarter setting. Meanwhile, the former Splash Mountain attraction at Disneyland in California is also undergoing a transformation into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, with an expected opening timeline of “later in 2024.”

For Disney fans eager to explore Tiana’s world, a trip to Disney World in Florida this summer is the ideal opportunity to experience the new ride firsthand. Keep an eye out for updates on whether the ride will utilize a virtual queue, offer individual Lightning Lane purchases, and other access rules and tips to make the most of your visit. Get ready to be swept away on your first float down the bayou and delve into the magic of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
