Critter Country will close at Disneyland on May 1, as the theme park prepares the land for the opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

In addition to converting the former Splash Mountain to a “The Princess and the Frog” theme, Disneyland announced today that it will retheme two of the merchandise locations in Critter Country.The former Briar Patch will become Ray’s Berets, featuring the firefly from the Disney Animation film. The shop will sell themed headwear, toys, and other apparel.

That store will offer a wide range of “The Princess and the Frog”-themed merchandise, including apparel, accessories, and home decor. The remaining half of Pooh Corner, containing the sweet shop, will retain its current name and theme.
