Things We Saw Today: Disney Shares Details About Princess and the Frog Ride Coming to Theme Parks

News of the Disney’s Splash Mountain ride being revamped to make it a Princess and the Frog ride was met with a mixed response from some. For me, I love Tiana, and I’m just glad to see her get more attention from Disney.

Disney’s Parks division shared Monday a new piece of concept art and story details for the planned ride. We get to see an image of Tiana (in pants!) while she plots a one-of-a-kind Mardi Gras celebration with Naveen and Louis in tow. Well, I guess her husband and talking animal friend would be coming back … we are allowed to dream.

EW shares:

Riders will float along colorful canals as original music inspired by the movie soundtracks the adventure, with Tiana — who’s also set to star in her own Disney+ TV series — leading the path to the party that’s filled with both familiar faces from the film and new characters.

I am excited about that new series because I’m ready for Tiana’s story to continue in a way that prioritizes her.
