Disney World’s Splash Mountain Replacement, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, Opens In June And It Smells Good

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, the ride that replaces Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World, will open on June 28, it has been announced. The ride closed for good in January 2023 as part of an effort to redesign the iconic water ride after it was criticized for stereotypes about black people and the glamorization of the American South after the civil war. Water from the original ride hit eBay for more than $150.

Functionally, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is similar to Splash Mountain in that guests will ride a boat through a dark area before plummeting five stories down into the water with a big splash. Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will feature characters from Princess and the Frog, including Princess Tiana, Mama Odie, Louis, and “all-new friends.” The ride will feature jazz music and aims to capture the essence of a “New Orleans celebration.” It also has Disney’s newest impressive animatronics, which you can see below.

The ride features cute critters like an otter, rabbit, raccoon, beaver, and others who are playing instruments made of natural materials local to the bayou. The music will be a blend of Zydeco, Rara, and Afro-Cuban tunes, as well as new, original music and songs from the movie.
