Tiana's Bayou Adventure

More Critters and New Attraction Poster Revealed for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

It is getting closer and closer to the opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Resort. Soon, guests will be taking the plunge into a musical adventure with Princess Tiana as she seeks out musicians for her party. As was shared recently, musicians (specifically a band), were the missing ingredient that Tiana is in search of for her big party that she is putting together. The most recent introduction of musical creatures showed some furry friends who play Zydeco music. Now, Disney is sharing about some more critters. These critters like to march with Rara!

Rara is a musical tradition from Haiti that is often found at festivals and street processions. It is very much a part of the melting pot of New Orleans and its musical history. The genre includes some unique instruments that bring out some beautiful and distinctive sounds. Below are some new characters that will be found in Tiana’s Bayou Adventure that will play Rara!

Octavia the Bobcat – Octavia plays the vaksin, a single-note horn instrument popular in Rara music. She’s an adventurous bobcat kitten, and she loves climbing and hanging out in trees almost as much as she loves performing. This daredevil almost never gets scared.  
Pawpaw the Bobcat – Not only is Pawpaw Octavia’s devoted grandfather, but he also taught her how to play the vaksin! Pawpaw lives to make Octavia smile and has the view that everything has a way of working itself out – he’s seen it all but isn’t jaded.  
Claude the Louisiana Black Bear – Claude is a salt of the earth kind of bear (or, as they say in the bayou, “salt of the mound”) who plays his horn along with the other members of his family. He’s a tinkerer who loves to create with things found in the forest, and is frequently funny without intending to be, especially when it comes to his home-grown creations. 
Bernadette the Louisiana Black Bear – Bernadette loves to enjoy life, from splashing in the waters of her bayou home with her cub, Sebastián, to playing the horn with her mate, Claude. She’s a clear thinker and is warm and supportive. Bernadette loves to sink into the bayou waters and munch on plants (so long as Sebastián is clearly within sight). 
Sebastián the Louisiana Black Bear – Though he’s definitely a “mama’s cub,” Sebastián charted his own musical course as a drummer, despite his parents being devoted horn players. He’s happy to follow his friend Octavia’s adventurous lead as they explore and play, and is fascinated with the small details in the bayou, like the insects and mushrooms. 
Phina the Gray Fox – Phina’s enthusiasm extends beyond her drumming, as she’s constantly thinking of new ideas with optimism and energy! This imaginative fox is continually starting new projects with excitement, and her friends accept and celebrate her unique thinking. 

Along with introducing these new characters for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, it was revealed that they will be a part of the attraction’s new poster.
