Disney Parks TikTok Princess Tiana shared her new outfit, which will be featured on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure ride at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland. Watch the video below.
The outfit was first revealed in concept art last summer.
While Tiana will be depicted in voice-over form during the ride, it is assumed that she will appear in this outfit elsewhere in the parks.
Tiana Bayou Adventure
Bayou’s adventure from Tiana picks up after the events of “The Princess and the Frog”. In 1927, Tiana founded Tiana’s Foods Cooperatives, located in a salt mine, where farmers grow crops along the water. During Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, Tiana and Crocodile Louis venture into the bay to find animal friends. They are preparing for a special Mardi Gras celebration for the residents of New Orleans.
The scene depicted in the concept art above is “the exciting moment you first drop into a cubicle and meet some new and familiar friends”. Louis and a group of animals will play Zydeco, a rhythm and blues mix created in Louisiana. The set of animal friends includes otter, rabbit, raccoon, beaver and tortoise, which is made of natural elements.
The ride will feature 17 new characters, including Prince Naveen’s younger brother, Ralphie. The Splash Mountain track will remain, but the attraction will get a new set of clothing and audio electronics. There will be many voice animations for Tiana, and she will have new adventure outfits.
The exterior landscaping was designed to look more like a Louisiana bayou.
The queue and catchy music are arranged by award-winning artists PJ Morton and Terence Blanchard, who will mix classic songs from the movie with New Orleans classics and original compositions. The beignet scent is also set to be pumped all over the queue.
Some of the original cast will provide their voices for the attraction, including Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Bruno Campos (Naveen), Michael Leon Wooley (Louis), and Jennifer Lewis (Mama Odie). Concept art shows Mama Odie in a crow’s nest in her shipwrecked home, with bottle lights hanging around it.
