Exciting news for Disney fans: the classic ride Splash Mountain is getting a major update at all Disney parks, and it’s all thanks to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
This new attraction will replace Splash Mountain and take visitors on a journey through the bayou where Tiana’s life has taken her following the success of her restaurant, Tiana’s Palace.
What to expect with this Splash Mountain overhaul
Walt Disney Imagineering has pulled out all the stops for this one, creating an original, next-chapter story for Tiana that will be featured in the ride.
With new scenes and music from the movie “The Princess and the Frog,” Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is sure to be a feast for the senses.
The construction work currently underway to transform Splash Mountain into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is a massive undertaking, but it’s worth it to bring this beloved Disney character to life in a whole new way.
From California to Florida, visitors to all Disney parks will be able to experience Tiana’s Bayou Adventure for themselves.
This ride will still be a classic way to beat the heat at Disneyland with a splash.
But it’s not just the storyline and music that make this ride so exciting. The new ride features, including updated technology and animatronics, will transport visitors into Tiana’s world like never before. And with the expected completion date just around the corner, it won’t be long until we can all experience this new attraction for ourselves.
Disney Imagineers and artists have been researching New Orleans lore to make sure that this new musical attraction is spot on. This ride picks up where Tiana’s story left off in the movie. Naveen, Louis and Tiana will be preparing for a spectacular New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration that is inclusive and welcoming to all.
The Evolution of Splash Mountain: From Controversy to Inclusion with Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
But before we get too excited about Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, let’s take a step back and look at the history of Splash Mountain.
This classic ride has been a staple of Disney parks since its debut in 1989, and it’s beloved by generations of fans.
So why is it being replaced with Tiana’s Bayou Adventure?
According to Disney, the update is meant to modernize the ride and make it more inclusive. Splash Mountain is based on the 1946 film “Song of the South,” which has been criticized for its portrayal of African Americans and perpetuating racist stereotypes. While the ride doesn’t directly reference the movie, the association has been a source of controversy for years.
In response, Disney decided to update Splash Mountain with a new story featuring Tiana, the first Black Disney princess, and her journey through the bayou. The move has been praised by many as a step in the right direction towards more diversity and representation in Disney’s parks.
Of course, Tiana’s character is more than just a symbol of progress. In “The Princess and the Frog,” Tiana is a hardworking and determined woman who achieves her dream of owning her own restaurant. Her story is one of perseverance, friendship, and love, and it’s sure to resonate with visitors to the new attraction.
So while it’s sad to say goodbye to Splash Mountain, it’s exciting to see what’s in store with Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. With its modernized storyline, updated technology, and new features, it’s sure to be a fresh and exciting addition to Disney parks around the world.
