New Orleans — One of the most popular and iconic attractions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World is getting a new name.

Disney officials announced on Friday that Splash Mountain will be renamed Tiana’s Bayou Adventure after a makeover of “The Princess and the Frog” in late 2024. USA Today and Newsweek reported.

The announcement was made at the Essence Fest in New Orleans.

According to Newsweek, “The Princess and the Frog,” released in 2009, is Disney’s first animated film featuring a black princess.

According to Disney, plans to change the theme of log flume vehicles have been in place since 2019.

Splash Mountain is based on the movie Song of the South, which has been attacked by critics with racist stereotypes since it opened in both parks and was released in 1946.

The updated version of Ride features the characters “The Princess and the Frog” and has a story that picks up where the movie ended.

Jeff Tavss of KSTU first reported this story.
