Tiana's Bayou Adventure Virtual Queue
Posted: Friday June 28, 2024 7:27am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The virtual queue and Lightning Lane for Tiana's Bayou Adventure quickly reached capacity early this morning as the Magic Kingdom's newest attraction begins its first official day of operations.

The virtual queue opened at 7 am this morning, with the Magic Kingdom at capacity for Annual Passholders but still available for date-based tickets.

Capacity for the 7 am virtual queue distribution was reached in just under 3 seconds, which is typical for virtual queue attractions including TRON Lightcycle Run and Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind. A second opportunity to join the virtual queue was available at 1 pm, and that reached capacity in less than 2 seconds.

Guests with Genie+ found that the Lightning Lane was also at capacity by 7:01am, restricting its availability to resort guests only.

Based on the Annual Passholder previews, we expect a progression rate of around 5 minutes per boarding group for guests in the virtual queue.

My Google Photos map of the area around Tiana’s Bayou Adventure — 2,750+ photos and videos. The bright red areas line up. 😅

Planning on a follow up as I have ridden it more since my first ride on Wednesday. It has definitely grown on me. The music throughout the attraction is excellent. And the awkward timing issues were not an issue this time, making the movements and actions of the A1000s much better. And the screens, especially of Mama Odie, have to be some of the most crisp, clear screens I have seen. Overall, I still give Splash the nod, but this is much, much closer now in terms of enjoyment and overall ride experience.

My best guess whatever company they use to make merchandise probably reused the Splash Mountain molds for the log since the ride vehicle outside of Brer Rabbit being there is the same. It's cheaper to reuse that. Also keep in mind the original model showing of what Tianas Bayou Adventure would look like did have Brer Rabbit still on the logs. Toys are made so far in advance they could have used that as a reference.

Thank goodness they made a better poster. A few weeks ago I felt this was one of the elements of the attraction they were lacking on. The initial “official” poster is horrible. This looks like something worth framing and has a lot more detail to it Now if only they’d address why some of the merch items still have Brer Rabbit on the front of the log…like why would they let that slide?

The exterior before passing under the train station is all remote bayou. It doesn’t need complementary New Orleans elements surrounding it any more than Splash needed scenery from elsewhere in Georgia framing it. That’s not to suggest that Pecos Bill will be around long term, but it’s been a southwestern restaurant sandwiched between southeastern attractions (Country Bears and Splash) for a long time.

I thought you meant to say where. My bad

Probably just ignore it. You should have a meal with an imagineer and see how they explain it

I am aware that there  are rumors. I was sort of hinting that there still are.

Pecos Bill retheme thread It's unconfirmed if it'll be Tiana, but it's still in development apparently:
