Disney has revealed a first look at a new mural that will be part of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in Disney World and Disneyland.

With each new update, we are getting more and more excited for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure! The upcoming Princess and the Frog-themed ride will be opening in late 2024 at both Magic Kingdom in Disney World and at Disneyland Park. In anticipation of the new ride, Disney has been sharing sneak peeks and details of what guests will be able to enjoy when it finally makes its debut. Today, Disney shared a first look at a mural that will serve as part of the ride.

First Look at New Mural Coming to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

Walt Disney Imagineering has worked with Louisianian artist Malaika Favorite to create a beautiful mural that will decorate the walls of part of the queue for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at both Disney World and Disneyland. In her artwork, Malaika took inspiration from murals and art that decorate building exteriors throughout New Orleans. Malaika’s art can be found at the Baton Rouge Gallery, a collection of work that “explores the cultural heritage of African Americans and who we are as a people.”

Malaikea has a long history of creativity, with her artistic talent first developing when she was old enough to hold a paintbrush. By first grade, teachers were paying Malaika to commission pictures and posters!

Malaika’s mural for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure features a collage of scenes displayed on two of the building’s exterior walls as you enter the indoor queue. The scenes are supposed to represent and highlight Tiana’s professional journey and the creation of Tiana’s Foods. They reflect the elements of what Tiana and her father find most important: family, friends, food, music, art, and bringing folks together.
