Who else is excited about Tiana’s Bayou Adventure?
Splash Mountain has officially closed in Disney World to make way for this new ride. We’ve seen concept art, opening timelines, and more about the ride, but do you know what story the ride tells? With some new information about the story being released, we figured now is a great time to put all the answers in one place — here’s what Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is all about!
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure picks up after the end of The Princess and The Frog, where Tiana has successfully opened her restaurant, Tiana’s Palace. The story of this new ride starts in the queue, where guests learn that Tiana has also started Tiana’s Foods, an employee-owned cooperative. By combining her talents with the community’s, they’ve turned an old salt mine into a beloved brand.
Tiana purchased the salt mine and the large salt dome it operated from, and with the help of her mother Eudora, Naveen, Louis, and fellow owners of the cooperative, she began to grow vegetables, spices, and herbs for her recipes on the revived land.
Tiana’s Foods houses both a boutique farm and a working and teaching kitchen. She and her colleagues are working on creating all sorts of new products, including a new line of hot sauces.
To thank her family and community for all their support, Tiana plans to throw an amazing party during Mardi Gras. However, when it turns out there has been a mix up with the party preparations, Tiana invites us to join her at Tiana’s Foods to find the missing ingredient for the party!
When guests arrive at Tiana’s Foods, we see that Tiana has decorated the area with art from local artists, food is being prepared, and beignets are being loaded into crates to prepare for the journey guests are about to take into the bayou, where you’ll see both new and familiar friends from the film along the way.
Tiana continues bringing people together with her companies and is working with other community members to teach cooking and gardening to kids of all ages. She also serves as an inspiration to women nationwide to run successful businesses themselves.
The details of the ride itself are still under wraps, but now we know what sets up the ride, and what guests will learn in the queue! As always, stay tuned to AllEars for all the latest Disney news!
