Disney replaced the Splash Mountain attraction with the Princess and the Frog theme in 2020, replacing the controversial "Song of the South" film. The move aimed to remove references to the film and maintain Disney's popularity in theme parks.
Magic Kingdom's Splash Mountain closed in January 2023, but Disneyland Park will soon open a new ride, Tiana's Bayou Adventure, inspired by Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.
Princess Tiana dreams of owning a restaurant in New Orleans. After a final kiss with Prince Naveen, she opens her restaurant, Tiana's Palace, and embarks on a Bayou Adventure. During the hunt, she encounters swamp critters and jazz-loving alligator Louis, preparing for a Mardi Gras bash.
Disney has revealed the backstory of the new attraction, Tiana's Foods, which focuses on Tiana's empire since The Princess and the Frog. The attraction features a bustling farm and kitchen, where guests can learn about Tiana's collaborations with the community. The attraction also includes a quest to find the key ingredient to ensure the celebration doesn't go sour.
