‘The Princess & The Frog’: Tiana’s Palace Restaurant Opening at Disneyland This Fall

by admin
Tiana's Palace

Disneyland is set to unveil Tiana’s Palace, a novel quick-service restaurant, in place of the previous French Market Restaurant on September 7, 2023. The establishment, situated in New Orleans Square, draws inspiration from Tiana’s culinary skills as showcased in the much-loved animated movie, The Princess and the Frog.

The interior of the restaurant will feature refined yet understated details reflecting Tiana’s rich New Orleans heritage. The decoration will include elements mirroring her elegant ball gown and Mardi Gras colors. An emerald green wrought iron railing, yellow and green awnings, and vibrant seating arrangements will contribute to the ambience.

The menu will celebrate the flavors of New Orleans, with an emphasis on procuring ingredients directly from Louisiana when feasible. Guests will be able to order via the park’s mobile app once the restaurant opens. Inside, visitors will find intricate references to the movie, including a large bayou mural, lily representations, frog decorations, Tiana’s collected cookbooks, her father’s cherished gumbo spoon, and more.

The Disney Parks Blog has provided a glimpse into the beautifully themed interior, rich in symbols of Tiana’s story, such as letters from her father and neighbors and a childhood photograph of Tiana herself.

This new dining experience is part of a larger movement to extend Tiana’s presence within the Disney Parks. The transformation of Splash Mountain into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, addressing its earlier controversial context, will also materialize. This attraction will undergo a comprehensive revamp to include new narratives, surroundings, characters, and music, all in harmony with The Princess and the Frog’s storyline. Both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney World will launch Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in its renewed form in late 2024.
