Meet the New Critter Musicians of Tiana's Bayou Adventure

by Mommy Frog on March 29, 2024

Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Universal Orlando Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood and other theme parks.

Weekly Roundup - Tiana's Bayou Adventure Critters

  • Introducing the new critter musicians in Tiana's Bayou Adventure! On the new ride coming to Disney World in summer 2024 and to Disneyland later in 2024, you'll encounter some critter musicians playing “Gonna Take You There” from "Princess and the Frog." Who are these characters? We'll tell you!
    • Byhalia the Beaver helps build musical instruments from materials found in the bayou. This strong-willed percussionist is the heartbeat of the band.
    • Rufus the Turtle is an adventurous turtle who is quick to jump into rhythm with his harmonica.
    • Apollo the Raccoon can transform abandoned objects into works of musical art, like his squeezebox.
    • Gritty the Rabbit is willing to "dig a little deeper" to help others. She plays the washboard (made from a license plate) with a high-energy flair. The overzealous Gritty digs to relieve her nerves.
    • Timoléon the Otter is the oldest band member, but he finds inspiration for playing the fiddle by the youngsters in the bayou. He's known for his storytelling.
    • Beau the Opossum, with help from her dexterous tail, plucks out the low notes with her upright gourd bass.
