Tiana’s Bayou Adventure to Replace Splash Mountain by Late 2024
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
Walt Disney Imagineers have been spending a lot of time in Louisiana conducting research to ensure Tiana’s Bayou Adventure preserves the heart and soul of Tiana's story.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure has been described as a love letter to New Orleans. The ride will take you on a musical adventure picking up where the film left off. We will see Princess Tiana, Naveen and the jazz-loving alligator Louis on an adventure through the bayou as they prepare to host a one-of-a-kind Mardi Gras celebration where everyone is welcome. The ride will travel through the bayou to original music inspired by songs from the movie as they're brought into the next chapter of Tiana’s story.
More Benefits for Hotel Guests of Disneyland Onsite Resort Hotels
While some guest hotel perks have been removed at Walt Disney World, they're being added over at Disneyland Resort. Here are some of the most notable new guest perks.
New summer pool parties will take place for 30 minutes daily at all three Disneyland Resort Hotels from July 1 – Aug. 31, 2022. The Disney poolside squad will be on deck to lead games like the water sponge relay and a fun floaty toss, and play high-energy music for dancing the Pluto doggie paddle! Disney characters will stop by the pool to join in the fun.

Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course Undergoing Most Extensive Redesign Ever
As part of a long-running collaboration with Arnold Palmer Golf Management, Disney is currently redesigning part of the Magnolia course. There will be four holes – No. 14, No. 15, No. 16 and No. 17 – that will be reimagined with innovative layouts and landscaping.
Also, the course’s 18 greens will be upgraded to create even more pristine putting surfaces. Plus, holes No. 16 and No. 17 will be connected by a new, wooden cart bridge through the forest and several fairway and greenside bunkers are being installed along with more challenging tee boxes.
The new-look Magnolia course will debut later this year.
