Mama Odie’s Bayou Tale

Aptly nestled between the Rivers of America and Fantasyland is Mama Odie’s Bayou Tale.  Explore the Louisiana Bayou and visit Mama Odie’s tree house to hear the tale of Tiana and Naveen’s magical transformation and happily ever after.

The soon to be iconic entrance to the attraction features yet another sub-species in the grand tradition of the Disneydendron semperflorens grandis, a towering cypress tree with a dilapidated shrimp boat cradled precariously in its branches.

Guests queue through the shady outdoor bayou, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the story.  At night, this area comes to life with the flickering of fireflies and enchanted pools.  After entering Mama Odie’s tree house, guests are transported through time and space to 1920’s New Orleans, where our tale begins…

Along the trail between Frontierland and Fantasyland, guests can find Red’s Backwoods Bar-b-que, which will be the new home of the well loved bar-b-que offerings from Big Thunder Ranch.

The inside queue is themed to the port of New Orleans in 1920, where we see Naveen arriving and disembarking from his ship.

After exiting the ride, guests will have the opportunity to partake in some southern hospitality at Tiana’s Palace, an all new restaurant offering table service, as well as an exterior quick service option.
