Today, Disney unveiled new concept art for a reimagining of one of the park’s most popular rides, Splash Mountain! The ride, located at both Disneyland and in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, will be updated with an exciting adventure featuring characters from The Princess and the Frog. Guests will join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure as they get ready for their first Mardi Gras performance.

The backdrop of Tiana’s story takes place in New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou so it will fit perfectly into the theming of New Orleans Square in Disneyland. New Orleans Square was the first new”land” that Walt Disney himself opened, so it almost makes it even more magical. At the Magic Kingdom, Splash Mountain is located in Frontier Land so it will be interesting to see how Disney’s Imagineers tie the rethemed ride into its surroundings.

The Princess and the Frog is one of my all time favorite Disney movies and I am super excited to see how the Imagineers bring it to life. I can’t wait to enjoy the music and go on this adventure with Tiana and Louis. Stay tuned for more details!
