Splash Mountain's reimagining is finally happening!
The iconic Disney ride will become "Tiana's Bayou Adventure" in 2024 at both Disneyland in California and at Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Florida, in a makeover based on 2009's The Princess and the Frog.
Now, as Disney prepares to close the Disney World location on Jan. 23, 2023 in order to facilitate the transition, it's unveiling a first look at a new scene from the forthcoming re-theming, which features characters specifically created for the attraction.
The ride, which will remain a log flume, will also incorporate zydeco music, a blend of rhythm and blues that originated in Louisiana. A cast of critters will make up the band, including an otter, rabbit, raccoon, beaver, turtle and others.
