During D23 Expo, Imagineers revealed more details about the story of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, opening in late 2024 at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom.
The attraction will follow Tiana venturing into the bayou to find animal friends. She’s hosting a party for the people of New Orleans, but it’s missing a special ingredient.
Some of the original cast will be providing their voices to the attraction, including Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Bruno Campos (Naveen), Michael Leon Wooley (Louis), and Jennifer Lewis (Mama Odie).
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will have new characters, animation, lighting, and mist effects to turn it into a completely new experience. The attraction is set to look especially gorgeous at night. It’s a love letter to New Orleans and it was important to the Imagineers for it to be authentic.
Anika Noni Rose came on stage to sing “Almost There” during the D23 Expo presentation.
