Tiana’s Bayou Adventure has been under construction in Magic Kingdom since early 2023, but it’s set to open in just a few short weeks!


We’ve been keeping up with the ride’s opening date, how Annual Passholder and more previews will work, and brought you news that Tiana’s will use both a virtual queue and Lightning Lane when it first opens. A while back, Disney shared that new souvenirs would be coming to Magic Kingdom for the ride’s opening — and we just got an exclusive first look!

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is officially opening at Walt Disney World on June 28th, 2024! Not only that, but Disney announced that along with the ride opening, we’d be getting brand-new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure souvenirs, too. While we may still have to wait a while for the ride to officially open to parkgoers, we did get an exclusive sneak peek at Tiana’s Bayou Adventure merchandise coming to Magic Kingdom on June 28th!

Inside the store

We previously spotted new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure ears, but now we’ve got ANOTHER new pair to show off! You may remember seeing these ears — they are mostly navy blue with gold details and include artwork associated with the ride. They have a puffy gold bow with a water lily in the middle.

But now, there’s ANOTHER new pair of ears to check out! First of all, WOW. These silvery green ears are stunning. We love that Art Deco-inspired print, complete with Tiana’s tiara and some pretty lotus flowers. But there’s more! These ears have a special fluorescent glow, so they’ll really light up in the dark. We can’t wait to see what they look like when the lights are dim. There is also a beautiful new line of jewelry!

New ears and accessories

But, that’s not the only new piece of merch you’ll find when Tiana’s finally opens! You can rep the NEW ride with a classic adult Spirit Jersey

…or a Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Loungefly Mini Backpack featuring Princess Tiana, Naveen, Mama Odie, and Louis!

New Loungefly

Of course, there’s also a new pin to add to your collection! This one matches the Loungefly bag and Spirit Jersey.

After a ride down that BIG hill, you might want a Tiana’s Bayou Adventure-themed towel to help you dry off.

The Interactive Firefly loves to see other fireflies nearby and will light up when they’re near each other to say hello.

You can also bring home a Tiana plush doll ready for adventure in her new outfit or a Louis Cuddleez Plush.

We especially enjoyed this light-up Tiana’s Bayou Adventure water bottle! It features tons of the adorable critters you can see on the ride.

It lights up!

Kids may also enjoy this cooking set with everything you need to make the perfect gumbo.

This will be fun!

There are also some new shirts for kids, like this Tiana shirt

…and this teal sweatshirt.

We especially love this NEW Tiana dress!

It’s so pretty!

Don’t forget the gorgeous Tiana’s Foods tower figurine featuring Tiana, Naveen, and a few critter friends. Or save your money for keepsakes in the Restaurant Fund Coffee Can — but be sure to enjoy the sweet chocolate coins inside first!

For the first time, spices from Leah Chase’s family restaurant, Dooky Chase, will be sold outside of New Orleans for the first time…

Lots of spices!

…and you can add more Tiana-inspired items to your kitchen, like the Tiana’s Foods mug or spice rack.

New Mugs!

There’s a LOT of new kitchen merchandise throughout the shop, including a Dooky Chase cookbook, new apron, oven mitts, and more. 


Here’s a peek at some of the new apparel inspired by the ride! There’s a new zip-up sweatshirt, a white t-shirt, a graphic tee, a dress, baseball hats, bucket hats, socks, and more.


Did we just find a new best friend? Look who we spotted — it’s a firefly that sits atop your shoulder!

How neat is this?!

For all your collectors, pick up a new ornament before the holidays!

If you loved those new Art Deco-esque Minnie ears, we’ve got good news. There’s even MORE merchandise in the collection! We spotted a new tea set, decorative pillow, and purse!


Of course, there’s also a new MagicBand+ with the Tiana’s Bayou Adventure logo and Louis!

It’s so blue!

…Princess Tiana dresses, candy, and other pre-packaged snacks and drinks throughout the store.


Disney has shared that Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will pick up the story of The Princess and the Frog “after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.” 


So, what exactly DOES happen “after the final kiss”? Well, when the film itself ends, Princess Tiana makes her dream come true when she opens her very own restaurant, Tiana’s Palace (just like the one that recently opened in Disneyland)!

The story of the attraction, as Disney shares, picks up during New Orleans’ Carnival season, and Tiana is hosting a Mardi Gras Party for the people of New Orleans — the community that has supported her successful restaurant. (The storyline is set about a year after the movie.)

But Tiana realizes that the party is “missing a key ingredient” and she needs help finding it…And YOU will join Tiana, too, as Disney Imagineers have shared that guests will be active participants coming along with Tiana on this adventure!
