For this episode, we discuss Disney’s official POV video of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure which was released on Saturday, June 2, 2024. Disney posted their own POV video before the attraction began previews pre-empting any videos made by social media influencers. However, they did not post the scene 1, the queue. Perhaps, they wanted to leave a little something for the influencers. What do you think about our discussion? Let us know at show@magicourway.com.
