Walt Disney Imagineering gave us a sneak peek Wednesday of the artwork coming to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland, and today, we’ve got new images and details to share about the beautiful mural guests will see on Tiana’s barn.
Artist Malaika Favorite’s beautiful artwork adorns the halls of the Baton Rouge Gallery with a remarkable collection exploring the cultural heritage of African American people.
Continuing the storyline from The Princess and the Frog, Malaika’s mural for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure features a collage of breathtaking scenes displayed on two of the building’s exterior walls as you enter the indoor queue. These scenes highlight Tiana’s professional journey and the creation of Tiana’s Foods. When Tiana was young, her father made her promise to ‘never, ever lose sight of what is really important,’ and the mural will reflect those elements: family, friends, food, music, art, and bringing folks together.Disney Parks Blog
