If a trip to Disney World in Florida is in your future, Axios editor Ashley May has a few tips and tricks to help your vacation dreams come true.

  • I'm a periodic parkgoer but not a Disney diehard. I traveled with a group of nine, ages 4 to 80. We visited a park each day, Ashley writes.

🧳 Best item packed: Brita Filtered Water Bottles from Walmart.

🧒 Best kid experiences: Cinderella's Royal Table (lots of princess meet-and-greets) and Savi's Workshop's lightsaber experience (yes, we lugged a lightsaber back through TSA).

📝 Best plans: We secured meal reservations and experiences 60 days in advance — the minute options opened.

  • Go deeper: What to hit — and skip — at each park.

Attraction starring Disney’s first Black princess replaces ride based on film many viewed as racist

⚜️1 fun thing: Disney's newest ride
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.axios.com%

Axios Local editor Jeff Weiner got a sneak peek of Disney World's latest attraction, Tiana's Bayou Adventure, based on the 2009 film "The Princess and the Frog."

  • The New Orleans-themed log flume ride replaces Splash Mountain, though the bones of the Magic Kingdom mainstay remain.

🌊 Jeff writes: As my raft wound through the Louisiana bayou, the jazzy serenade of Animatronic musical critters almost lulled me into forgetting where this ride was headed. But soon, there it was: That familiar 50-foot drop — and the splash.

The vibe: Imagineers conferred with New Orleans-based artists and the family of famed NOLA chef Leah Chase, who inspired the movie's Tiana character. It shows.

  • The ride is a celebration of brassy music and Creole and Cajun culture.

The ride takes you on a quest through the bayou, led by Tiana and fan-favorite alligator trumpeter Louis, in search of musicians for a Mardi Gras party.

  • Among the recruits: a harmonica-playing turtle, an opossum bassist and a rabbit using a license plate as a washboard.

The ride opens June 28.
