To celebrate the opening day of Tiana's Bayou Adventure at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney Records has released the attraction's full soundtrack across all streaming platforms, including Apple Music and Spotify.

Among the standout tracks is the all-new, original song "Special Spice," written, produced, and performed by Grammy-Award winner PJ Morton, with vocals by Anika Noni Rose, the original voice of Princess Tiana and a Disney Legend.

Fans of "The Princess and the Frog" will hear new renditions of beloved songs from the film, including "Gonna Take You There" and "Down in New Orleans." These tracks have been revitalized for the attraction and the queue area by renowned musician Terence Blanchard, alongside PJ Morton.

Recorded in New Orleans, the soundtrack features an array of artists who have contributed their talents to the ride experience. Notable performers include:

  • Anika Noni Rose – The beloved voice of Princess Tiana returns, singing vocals on "Special Spice."
  • Jon Batiste, Jon Cleary, and Trombone Shorty – Grammy-award winning musicians who bring their unique flair to various songs throughout the attraction.
  • Tarriona "Tank" Ball – A New Orleans native who performs a new rendition of "Dig A Little Deeper."
  • Dirty Dozen Brass Band – Playing and singing "They All Asked for You," a song well-known in New Orleans.
  • Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Contributing to tracks like "Louisiana Fairytale," "Tailgate Ramble," and "Bourbon Street Parade."
  • Leah Chase Kamata – Singing "Do you Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans" in the queue area.
  • Charlie Gabriel – The 91-year-old icon provides lead vocals and clarinet on "Tailgate Ramble."

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:
