BREAKING: Ride Poster and 6 NEW Characters REVEALED For Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in Disney World

Y’all, we are getting SO CLOSE to the opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Disney World!

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

We truly feel like we can almost taste it. There is so much happening with the ride on a daily basis, and recently we’ve been getting a bunch of fun announcements about what we can expect from the ride. We have learned about some of the critters we’ll be expecting to meet when we adventure into the Bayou, and today Disney has announced MORE critters we are going to meet, so let’s start a round of introductions!

Before we introduce you to the critters we’ll be meeting, we have something BIG to look at. Disney has officially released the poster for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure — and if this doesn’t make you want to squeal with joy, we don’t know what will.


We can even see some characters we’ve already met in the poster, as well as a few friends we’re going to meet today! We can’t wait to head into the Bayou to finally be able to see all of this in action.


Now, for the critters! We have six NEW critters who are Rara musicians. Rara is a type of music that can be found at festivals, and it comes from traditions in Haiti. You’ll be able to catch this throughout New Orleans, and is a very distinct musical style. We know we can’t wait to hear it, but while we wait for that — let’s meet the band who is playing it!


Octavia the Bobcat – Octavia plays the vaksin, a single-note horn instrument popular in Rara music. She’s an adventurous bobcat kitten, and she loves climbing and hanging out in trees almost as much as she loves performing. This daredevil almost never gets scared.


Pawpaw the Bobcat – Not only is Pawpaw Octavia’s devoted grandfather, but he also taught her how to play the vaksin! Pawpaw lives to make Octavia smile and has the view that everything has a way of working itself out – he’s seen it all but isn’t jaded.


Claude the Louisiana Black Bear – Claude is a salt of the earth kind of bear (or, as they say in the bayou, “salt of the mound”) who plays his horn along with the other members of his family. He’s a tinkerer who loves to create with things found in the forest, and is frequently funny without intending to be, especially when it comes to his home-grown creations.


Bernadette the Louisiana Black Bear – Bernadette loves to enjoy life, from splashing in the waters of her bayou home with her cub, Sebastián, to playing the horn with her mate, Claude. She’s a clear thinker and is warm and supportive. Bernadette loves to sink into the bayou waters and munch on plants (so long as Sebastián is clearly within sight).


Sebastián the Louisiana Black Bear – Though he’s definitely a “mama’s cub,” Sebastián charted his own musical course as a drummer, despite his parents being devoted horn players. He’s happy to follow his friend Octavia’s adventurous lead as they explore and play, and is fascinated with the small details in the bayou, like the insects and mushrooms.


Phina the Gray Fox – Phina’s enthusiasm extends beyond her drumming, as she’s constantly thinking of new ideas with optimism and energy! This imaginative fox is continually starting new projects with excitement, and her friends accept and celebrate her unique thinking.

Looks like they enjoyed it!

We truly can’t wait to meet these critters in person on the Bayou, and according to Disney, we’re going to be meeting even more 👀. We’ll be keeping our eyes out, so stay tuned to us at AllEars for the latest!
