Wow those pics from the article look absolutely terrible. Hoping the ride turns out better than what was shown.

Well, if the bayou was 5 miles across and the frog had a torso diameter of 7 miles, the frog would overhang the bayou by a full mile on two sides! This seems unlikely. However, if the volume of the of the bayou was 1e12 cubic feet (used Bartholomew Bayou and assumed an average depth of 2 feet) and the volume of the average bull frog was ~ 0.02 cubic feet (calculated in two ways, 0.5 feet *0.2 feet * 0.2 feet or 17 oz (typical bull frog weight) to cubic feet, these are both rough approximations that don't take into account specifics of the bullfrog shape or the bullfrog's specific density). Anyway, that would imply that the maximum number of bullfrogs in the bayou would be 5e13 and that no more would fit. That's a LOT of frogs. However. it does assume that the frogs are packed in the tightest formation possible. A closest froggy packing structure if you will. So, I would say something like 1e13 would be the actual max number of frogs in this particular bayou and no more would fit. So, the implication is that unfortunately there will be a maximum number of that would fit in Tiana's bayou. Another thing that is not taken into account, is that an attraction actually used the maximum number of frogs (sculptures and animatronics in this case) would probably alienate people who had frog phobias or people who wanted to see main characters from the movie. However, the characters could appear many times in frog form, but this would be weird for all but one character. Even then, you'd have to be at the correct point on the story timeline.

Majority of people who will eventually go on this ride (after it calms down) aren't Disney Parks super fans, let alone Splash Mountain superfans, such as those on this site. They will not notice or care that the trees have been reused from Splash Mountain. The two pictures side by side, Tiana's ride is actually more visually appealing. Can't comment on animatronic emptiness as we really haven't seen anything yet.

Fishing is allowed in Louisiana bayous. They sound too blue to fly.

So they replaced the no fishing sign with a hidden static armadillo? Personally I’d take the sign. It stood out more, and the armadillo is much uglier.

Finally, an accurate depiction of my deltoids from lifting up a pencil so much. I feel seen.
