Disney’s Re-Theming of Splash Mountain to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
Disney’s recent announcement that they will be re-theming the Splash Mountain ride at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom has caused quite a stir among fans of the popular attraction. The new ride, called “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure,” will be based on the 2009 animated film “The Princess and the Frog,” and will give guests a chance to experience the culture and music of New Orleans, where the movie is set.
This decision to re-theme the ride was made in response to criticism that the original Splash Mountain ride, which is based on the 1946 film “Song of the South,” has racist themes and characters. Although the ride has been a favorite among guests for many years, it has also been a source of controversy.
The new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure theme will feature characters and settings from the film and will be a chance for guests to immerse themselves in the world of “The Princess and the Frog.” Fans of the movie will finally get a chance to see Tiana, Naveen, Louis and other beloved characters come to life on the ride. The ride will also showcase the vibrant culture and music of New Orleans, allowing guests to experience the city’s unique atmosphere and charm.
Many fans of the original Splash Mountain ride may be disappointed by the change, but the re-theming of the ride is a step in the right direction for Disney. It shows that the company is willing to listen to criticism and make changes to its attractions in order to create a more inclusive and respectful experience for all guests.
The new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is expected to open in the coming years, and it will be a great opportunity for guests to experience a fresh, new take on the popular ride. This new attraction will not only be entertaining but also a great representation of diversity and culture. It’s a great opportunity for Disney to showcase the importance of representation and cultural appreciation in their theme parks.
Overall, Disney’s decision to re-theme Splash Mountain is a step in the right direction for the company. It shows that they are willing to listen to criticism and make changes to their attractions in order to create a more inclusive and respectful experience for all guests.
We can’t wait to see what Tiana’s Bayou Adventure has in store for us and we are sure it will be a great addition to the Disney’s theme parks.
