As you enter the queue for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, the festive atmosphere is buzzing – it’s Mardi Gras in 1927, and Tiana’s throwing a bash for the whole of New Orleans! But a hitch in the party plans has thrown everything into a tizzy. Twixt those catchy tunes playing over the company radio, the announcer throws in an urgent plea: Prince Naveen and Louis somehow forgot to book a band!

While you wait to join the search for musicians, soak in the sights and sounds of Tiana’s bustling headquarters – Tiana’s Foods. Her office and kitchen are filled with personal touches, like framed newspaper clippings and photos of Tiana and her friends, even a glimpse of them loading ingredients for the party! Her to-do list hangs prominently, everything checked off except one crucial item – finding a band!

Keep your ears peeled for the radio! Award-winning musician Terence Blanchard, who brought the magic to “The Princess and the Frog” soundtrack, has cooked up brand new New Orleans-inspired tunes. Between the toe-tapping music, the radio host will be spreading the word about Tiana’s need for musical merriment. Will you be the hero who helps make this Mardi Gras bash unforgettable?

The search for the missing ingredient – a band for Tiana’s Mardi Gras bash – is on! Following Louis’ lead, you’ll hop aboard log flumes and venture deep into the heart of the bayou. Keep your eyes peeled (and ears open!) for the musical critters who call this lush landscape home. Using instruments crafted from natural materials, these talented creatures play lively Zydeco, Rara, and Afro-Cuban music.

Eureka! Tiana discovers the perfect ingredient – the infectious music of the bayou critters! Dozens of brand new Audio-Animatronics figures bring the scene to life, including your favorite characters from the movie – Tiana, Naveen, Louis, Mama Odie, and more. Even the voice cast reprises their roles, making it feel like you’ve stepped right into the film.

Mission accomplished! With the musical marvels secured, it’s time to boogie back to the party. Luckily, Mama Odie has a magical shortcut that whisks you straight to the heart of the celebration. Get ready for a toe-tapping, thrill-filled ride as you race back to join the Mardi Gras fun!

After a heart-pounding 50-foot plunge, your log flume bursts into the heart of the celebration – a vibrant New Orleans street party at Tiana and Naveen’s place! The scene explodes with color and music. Familiar faces like Mama Odie and the musical critters mingle with the excited crowd, creating a truly immersive experience.
