Disneyland is enhancing its New Orleans Square by bringing Tiana’s Palace to the resort later this year.
Just as Tiana transformed an old sugar mill into her dream restaurant in the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, “The Princess and the Frog,” soon the French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland park will be reimagined into Tiana’s Palace!
The menu at Tiana’s Palace will expand on many of the current favorites served in the location, explore seasonal flavors and, of course, offer some New Orleans classics. Tiana’s Palace is sure to be a gathering place for friends and family to enjoy great food and celebrate together, just like Tiana and her father James dreamed of.
Tiana’s Palace will open alongside the new Eudora’s Chic Boutique featuring Tiana’s Gourmet Secrets, a shop Tiana opened with her mother in the movie.
Disney Imagineers are working with Disney Animation artists from the film to bring the essence of The Princess and the Frog to Disneyland. “Within its peach-colored walls and fancy green wrought-iron balconies, you’ll find elegant fixtures and appointments reminiscent of Tiana’s life and friendships,” the blog wrote.
The Disney princess’s character was based on New Orleans own Leah Chase, founder of Dooky Chase’s located in the Treme area of New Orleans, La.
