Annual Passholder Preview details:

This June, be among the first to experience Tiana's Bayou Adventure—a new attraction in Magic Kingdom park!

As a special thank you for being an Annual Passholder, you're invited to ride Tiana's Bayou Adventure before the attraction opens to the general public on June 28, 2024.

Passholder Preview Dates
Passholder previews will take place at Magic Kingdom park on June 13, 14, 16, 17, 18 and 20.

About Tiana's Bayou Adventure
Embark on an enchanting musical journey inspired by the Disney animated film The Princess and the Frog!

Tiana's Bayou Adventure brings you into the next chapter of Princess Tiana's story. Join Tiana and jazz-loving alligator Louis on a voyage through shimmering bayou waters as they prepare for a spirited celebration during Mardi Gras season. Along the way, you'll see familiar faces, make new friends and plunge into fun—while enjoying toe-tapping tunes that will transport you to a lush Louisiana marsh.

Park Reservations & Virtual Queue Required
A virtual queue will be in place for Annual Passholder previews of Tiana's Bayou Adventure. Here’s how it works!

  • First, make a park reservation to Magic Kingdom park on a preview date to have the opportunity to join the 7:00 AM virtual queue for that day. Or, you can make a park reservation to any theme park on a preview date to have the opportunity to join the 1:00 PM virtual queue.
  • On the date of your reservation, request to join the virtual queue by using the My Disney Experience app. There will be 2 opportunities to join each day of previews.
    • The 7:00 AM virtual queue will be available to Passholders with a park reservation to Magic Kingdom park for that day.
    • The 1:00 PM virtual queue will be available to Passholders with a park reservation to any theme park for that day. As a reminder, Passholders must enter the theme park where they have a reservation prior to visiting Magic Kingdom park. Or, on June 13, 14, 17, 18 or 20, they can enter Magic Kingdom park without a reservation after 2:00 PM.
    • Passholders do not need to have entered a theme park when they request to join the virtual queue.
Important Information
  • Passholders must have a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass with valid admission on the preview date. Applicable pass blockout dates apply. Park reservations are limited and subject to availability.
  • Each Passholder can request to join a virtual queue no more than once per day.
  • Passholders may hold boarding groups for the preview virtual queue and an attraction virtual queue at the same time, when available.
  • Joining the virtual queue does not guarantee the ability to participate in the preview. Boarding groups for a virtual queue are limited, subject to availability and are not guaranteed. Not all boarding groups may be called to return, based on availability of the attraction. Learn more about virtual queues.
  • Offering, dates and hours are subject to change or cancellation without notice or liability.

yep, someone ate the page.

I am slow and from all that verbiage -- it seems one can get in the park after two w/o a reservation -- one can join the 1 PM VQ w/o being in the park -- but I can't figure out -- I guess I need a reservation for any park to get in on the 1 PM VQ or can I join the 1 PM VQ w/o a RES and just go after 2 to the MK -- but if I get a RES to any other park to join the 1 PM VQ I then need to go to the other park 1st before hoping after two -- I am so lost on all of this -- why do they mention after 2? is that just so IO can go and join the VQ after two if it is still available.

Oh well, guess I should just try and make MK RES's for one or more of those days -- maybe get them all and then not able to visit on non good to go days for I can't hold that many RES's at once. Talk about blocking me out from eating lunch at the parks from time to time for the next month :grumpy:

I am not an AP, but I will be there with a friend who is one during the previews - do we think guests of someone with an AP will be able to join? I cannot find any language about this anywhere.

Can an AP Holder buy a 4 Day discounted ticket to get into the park for the AP Previews, then after riding apply the unused portion of the ticket to their renewal?
