Disney Confirms Previews for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

Earlier today, Disney leaked the opening date for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in Magic Kingdom. During tonight’s American Idol broadcast, Ryan Seacrest confirmed what we all knew. The attraction is opening on June 28 in Walt Disney World. Immediately after, Disney Parks Blog shared more details about the opening, including the fact that previews are planned for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure:

We all expected this news. After all, you have to soft open these rides before making them available to the regular public. Ride closures on opening day would be a PR nightmare for Disney. It’s also a nice perk for Cast Members, Annual Passholders, and DVC members.

Tonight’s American Idol broadcast also featured Jenifer Lewis, Terence Blanchard, and Louis performing Dig a Little Deeper from The Princess and the Frog. It took Mama Odie herself to bring me back to Idol. I haven’t watched it since season 2!
