Ray's Berets and Louis' Critter Club will join Tiana's Bayou Adventure at Disneyland

Mar 18, 2024 in "Disneyland Resort"

Posted: Monday March 18, 2024 1:41pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney has announced that Tiana's Bayou Adventure, which is coming later this year to Disneyland, will include two reimagined merchandise locations.

The first location, Ray's Berets (currently The Briar Patch), will be the best place for guests to shop for headwear, apparel, accessories, toys, and more with firefly Raymond and his firefly kin in the coziest cabin in Critter Country.

Traveling further into the land, you'll come across Louis' Critter Club (currently on the left-hand side of Pooh Corner), where the friends of Tiana's Bayou Adventure call this local hot spot their home away from home. Louis' Critter Club is the place to go for apparel, accessories, home decor, and more, featuring some of your favorite critters and Princess Tiana.

The treats side of Pooh Corner will remain as a destination for must-have merchandise from Hundred Acre Wood, including beloved sweet treats like Tigger tails.

Critter Country will temporarily close on May 1, 2024, to make way for these land enhancements.

There is no word yet on which merchandise locations will be coming to Walt Disney World's version of Tiana's Bayou Adventure, but we should expect at least two.

Is that Italian?

Yes, but they can reserve multiple days at a time. If I just want to buy a ticket and go to the parks, it becomes a nightmare. This has been happening slowly, as I remember even before reservations, I bought a ticket at the parks and the lines moved so slowly because everyone in line was buying APs, so each transaction took forever due to having to go through the contracts and such. I just wanted to give them my cash and get my ticket, but that was no longer the priority.

Tiana's Copacetic Frog Adventure

These blog posts are so friggin weird. "He’s very copacetic and accepts what comes, a trait as steady and reliable as his drumbeat." Pure Disney magic. Good for Mondo the Frog. Yeesh.

The keyholder reservations always run out before tickets do from everything I've seen. That's part of what the magic key lawsuit was about.

Yeah, I'll be watching as well. If it were something I were "jazzed" about (pun intended), I might try to avoid watching, but in this case, living in Chicago, not planning a trip until at least summer 2025, I just want to see what they did. I think I'm most interested in seeing what the differences between the two versions are, since the rides were always quite different before. I'm sure they're trying to minimize that now, since it's cheaper to make two copies of the same thing, but certain things probably have to be different still.

I'm fortunate to live 30 miles from Disneyland, so I will experiencing Tiana spoiler-free. That said, it's going to be difficult to avoid spoilers during the period between the Orlando and Anaheim openings. Might need to take a break from Disney theme park online stuff for a bit.

I normally refuse to watch POVs of U.S. rides I haven't ridden (e.g., Remy's and Tron), but the exception for me will be Tiana's Bayou Adventure. Overall, I am not a fan, but I do plan to ride both versions at some point in time. Most of the animatronics look good, but it's that darn gumbo mural and yellow barn that gets me every time.

I’ll definitely be riding it. I’m too invested haha and both of my kids enjoy the movie. I just wish it resembled the movie. I think that there will be certain scenes that are more stimulating due to the new tech and effects. I think a good amount of charm will be lost. Music will be fine but obviously a downgrade. I expect the finale and the lift hill to be the biggest downgrades. Only thing left to find out is if it feels like there is enough life and if there is any element of suspense/ conflict. Overall I expect the reception to be similar to Mission Breakout. Diehards will still prefer Splash. GP will love it for music and the ride system alone. I don’t think we’ll be hearing a lot of “instant classic. More like a lot of younger generation fans saying or feeling like it’s a worthy replacement. People like us will always lament Splash is gone but I’m willing to give it a fair shot. From what I heard though it doesn’t sound like it’s going to check all the boxes for me. Then some of execution on Florida facade and queue is pretty bad. I’m open to it coming together in a way I don’t expect but also fear I’ll be disappointed. Also worried about what they do to the set up in the queue with all this “main office” business and them trying to do too much with the outdoor portions of the ride.

I’d like to. I’m going to try. I’ll try to stick to spoiler free threads. Might be hard to do for 4 -5 months

I am, but that's because I don't visit the parks as often anymore due to the pricing and reservations prioritizing Key Holders over folks buying day tickets. And I want to see the effects working rather than how the attraction ends up after a few months. Looking at you Rise cannons!
