Precisely. Why do we need “Millennium Falcon” and “Smugglers Run” in the title? Pick one and move on. Someone at WDI is obsessed with colons.Have you ever taken them on Star Wars Land's Galaxy's Edge, Batuu: Blackspire Outpost's Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run?
Here's the new look for Tiana from the EssenceFest panel this afternoon -
"From researching prevailing trends of the 1920s – the era in which our story takes place – to looking through family archives, the team ensured Tiana’s look was historically accurate and authentic to the character. “Tiana was equally at home in the bayou as she was at a banquet,” Muldrow said. “We wanted her look to reflect that, and be a compliment to the story’s setting.”
Attendees heard about the creative process as well, and the considerations taken in developing a unique hairstyle for Tiana. The team placed emphasis on the versatility of Black women’s hair and its significance to our identity across geographies and generations.
There’s an important story about the Black community that needs to be told, and to be able to do it at ESSENCE Fest is something special. Ida shared in our intention and enthusiasm for revealing this concept at ESSENCE Fest. “Our efforts are a tribute to the beauty and dignity of all the proud Black women who came before us,” Muldrow said. “And to their great-grand daughters joining us on the journey today, we’re celebrating with you.” Our team has spent a great deal of time to ensure our representation of Tiana is authentic, and giving festival goers a first look at that research proves we’re doing something right."
I do find it fun that Tiana's Bayou Adventure and Ariel's Undersea Adventure will be in the same park... it secretly makes me want then to rename 7DMT to Snow White's Gem Mine Adventure, Peter Pan's Flight to Tinkerbell's Neverland Adventure, and Magic Carpets of Aladin to Jasmin's Agrabah Adventure...
If only they had of gone with Ms. Ariel's Crazy Clams as a tribute to Mr. Toad.I hate to be that person, but you're thinking of the copy/paste version in Disney California Adventure. Magic Kingdom's is Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid (a nod to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea that was in its footprint).
I'd imagine that a good portion of the people who do not want this re-do would not be happy with the beloved name "Splash Mountain" left in the title.What a bad name. How can you get ride of the Splash Mountain name? Why not name it Tiana's Splash Mountain if you want her name in there somewhere

The actual title of the other ride there is “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.” Why does Disney feel the need to tell us the source material before the name of the ride?
How do you make a perfect ride better? You just cant. & i dont wanna hear look at todays version of it bc Disney let it rot. Im talking in its glory days.I think Disney have the opportunity to make the attraction better. I am just hoping for the same quality of attraction. Please don't go all screens and projections.
