Riders on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will help Princess Tiana find a musical band of bayou critters to play her Mardi Gras party when the transformation of the former Splash Mountain ride is complete later this year at Disneyland.

Walt Disney World released a point-of-view ride-through video of the complete Tiana’s Bayou Adventure ride officially opening at the Magic Kingdom on June 28 and in late 2024 at Disneyland in the former Splash Mountain attractions at both parks. The ride has opened for previews at the Florida theme park.

The twin Tiana’s Bayou Adventure rides will tell an extension of the “Princess and the Frog” story that picks up after the final kiss between Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen. The new backstory for Splash Mountain will follow Tiana and Louis the trumpet-playing alligator as they prepare for their first Mardi Gras performance.

The ride’s backstory finds Tiana in need of a band for her bayou party and in search of a missing ingredient as she prepares to host a one-of-a-kind Mardi Gras celebration. As you might expect, that missing ingredient is you – the “Special Spice” she’s been looking for.

After an extensive makeover, Splash Mountain has been transformed into an aging bayou salt mine in the new ride based on “Princess and the Frog” and music from the 2009 animated film. A community food co-op called Tiana’s Foods has taken over the salt mines with growers planting crops along the waterway that flows around the mountain peak.

What follows is a scene-by-scene description of the new log flume ride – consider this your spoiler alert.

The ride begins with a trip through a Louisiana bayou filled with trees, flowers and lily pads as a tiara-topped Tiana Foods water tower looms overhead and “Down in New Orleans” plays.

Entering the mill, riders pass ropes, shovels, bags of flour and other farming supplies as they ascend a lift hill rising into the salt mine.

Riders spot an audio-animatronic version of Tiana for the first time on the lift hill of the log flume ride. The Disney princess – dressed in adventure gear for our journey through the bayou – appears to smile at riders as they pass by. The Tiana animatronic sets up the backstory for the ride that she’s looking for a band to play at her Mardi Gras party.

The log-shaped boats travel past a vine-wrapped tree and through a garden with rows of okra, celery and peppers as “Almost There” plays.

Heading into the dark, riders get their first glimpse of Louis with a zydeco band of animatronic bayou critters playing a version of “Gonna Take You There.” A Tiana animatronic figure invites the band to play at her Mardi Gras party.
