Starting Oct. 26, Magic Kingdom guests will be treated to first-ever appearances by Princess Tiana, star of the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures animated feature film “The Princess and the Frog.”
Besides meet and greets with guests, Princess Tiana, Prince Naveen and other characters from the motion picture will star in “Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee!,” a rousing, colorful parade with a jazz-filled Mardi Gras theme. The good times are guaranteed to roll as festively-dressed, bead-tossing paraders lead Magic Kingdom guests to the Liberty Belle Riverboat dock.
The party moves onboard as the Liberty Belle paddlewheels her way along the river to singing, dancing and all that jazz. Songs from the film will add to the show, which will be performed 3-4 times daily.
“Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee!” also will be performed at Disneyland, beginning Nov. 6. The experience will run through Jan. 3, 2010, in each park.
Princess Tiana as she will appear in Disney parks was recently sneak-previewed for delegates to the National Association of Black Journalists convention in Tampa.
A hilarious movie adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana, “The Princess and the Frog” will open in limited release in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 25, 2009, before expanding nationwide on Dec. 11, 2009.
