In this first look at one of the finished show scenes in Tiana's Bayou Adventure, here are a couple of amphibious friends who love to sit back, relax and catch up on all the gossip from around the bayou.

Gloria and Delores the frogs are best friends who love to observe folks as they float in logs down the bayou.

Also, keep an eye out for Lari the armadillo. This mischievous fella, while quiet in demeanor, seems to always show up where you least expect him to. He apparently has a habit of "borrowing" things that aren't his (although those things eventually make it into the right "paws").

In this final installment of the critter musician reveal, here is a first look at critters who bring the jazzy sounds and complex rhythms of Afro-Cuban music to life in the bayou at Tiana's Bayou Adventure.

Felipe the Frog – Deep among the cypress trees, you'll hear band leader Felipe making musical magic on the piano! Felipe is also the proprietor of an exclusive bayou night club, where the local fireflies love to dance the night away to a musical recipe of hot rhythms and spicy melodies. He's an old-school family guy, especially to his "family" in the band.

Mayra the Frog – Have you ever seen a frog play a flower blossom like a trumpet? You will when you meet Mayra; be sure to stick around for one of her toe-tapping solos. Mayra's the most ambitious of the four frogs and has been practicing her instrument since she was just a tadpole!

Mondo the Frog – Mondo is a natural on the conga drums, which he made as a happy accident when his favorite bottle cap got stuck on his second-favorite acorn. From there, the rhythm in Mondo's soul took over! He's very copacetic and accepts what comes, a trait as steady and reliable as his drumbeat.

Isabel the Green Tree Frog – Learning from Mondo's example, Isabel loves getting lost in the music playing her congas. She's the youngest member of the group, and there's nothing she loves more than "going with the flow" and getting to play drums all night long!

With this latest reveal, we still need an update on the opening date for Tiana's Bayou Adventure. For now, Disney is sticking to the "summer 2024" opening at Walt Disney World and later in 2024 at Disneyland Resort.

I assume it's probably because it's going to be sold all over Disney Parks. I equate it as she is the more recognizable character in their head to brand on the bottle and it will be sold with all of the other random food products that mildly relate like when you go into Candy Cauldron in Disney Springs and they sell "Simba's Sour Gummy Worms" and "Chip and Dale's Candied Nuts."

Why am I not surprised people are complaining about a hot sauce bottle on here lol. Cus everything sold at a Publix or Kroger has their logo stamped all over it 🙄

Agreed. Can’t stand that Tiana’s Foods logo.

The weirdest thing is that at the top, where it would make perfect sense if they were planning on doing this to put the flower logo over the barn entrance, they've done the work to create an entirely different flame logo and ornate filigree. Can anyone make out what that is between "Hot" and "Sauce"?

Whatever the rationale, the branding looks much better than the Tiana’s Foods version.

Yes, I don't see the logo anywhere and also find this confusing. It almost seems like they are not 100% confident in the quality of the hot sauce and so don't want it too closely associated with Tiana's life's work as depicted in the ride.

Where do you see that? Mama Odie's being a Tiana's Foods brand would make sense, but I don't see either logo -- the Tiana's Foods hexagon or the Tiana's Hot Sauce circle logo -- on the Mama Odie's bottle.

So it looks like it has the Tiana's Foods logo on it, so "Mama Odie's" in this context is just the brand within Tiana's Foods.

I don't think it necessarily has to be one or the other. It would be funny if she was laughing at us/ messing with us.

Hopefully it's a simple Louisiana hot sauce. Could go nicely with my Plaza Inn fried chicken.

I'd said before that Mama Odie sending us down the drop didn't necessarily need to be to help us, as she seems the mischievous type to just screw with us for no reason. But now I wonder if she's just trying to take out the competition. Begun, the sauce wars have.

Mama Odie has a storefront, too? Or do they just carry her hot sauce at Publix?

SilentWindODoom1 hour ago

That's... such an incredibly strange swerve. Why?

Yeah that's confusing, because there are actual graphics in the queue of what the bottle should be. Also, Lari's look kinda scares me. His features look harsh/angry not mischievous
