6 Ways to Celebrate Princess Tiana at Walt Disney World

With only a few days left until opening day, the excitement is palpable as we eagerly anticipate the debut of our newest attraction – Tiana’s Bayou Adventure! We couldn’t be more thrilled for guests to join Princess Tiana and that jazz-loving alligator Louis in throwing the biggest bayou bash Magic Kingdom Park has ever seen.

To mark this special day, we’ve cooked up the top six ways to celebrate Princess Tiana’s story at Walt Disney World Resort when Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens on June 28 and all summer long. From food to merchandise, entertainment and more – guests can expect magic, joy and a whole lot of fun.

1 – Ride Tiana’s Bayou Adventure on Opening Day

By now guests may have heard that Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will use a virtual queue! Guests can request to join through the My Disney Experience app at 7:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. It will also be included as a Lightning Lane entrance in the Disney Genie+ service.

2 – Visit Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts

Guests can find a little piece of Crescent City right here in the heart of Central Florida at Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts.

From the New Orleans-inspired architecture and the horse-drawn carriage rides along the waterfront, to the swingin’ jazz scene at the Scat Cat Club Lounge and the seasonal beignet flavors at the Scat Cat Club Café … guests will be sure to pass a good time in true Louisiana style, just like Tiana.

3 – See Princess Tiana Take the Stage

If guests are at Magic Kingdom bright and early, they may see Princess Tiana as she drops on into the Let the Magic Begin Welcome Show in front of Cinderella Castle.

And of course, there’s the quick-stepping, tap-dancing New Orleans fun in the celebration of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “The Princess and the Frog” during Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire on the same stage. Then, guests can’t miss waving to Tiana and Prince Naveen as they visit Main Street U.S.A. during the Festival of Fantasy parade!

4 – Meet Princess Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall

If guests have ever wanted to dig a little deeper with Princess Tiana and ask her all about her famous beignet recipe, now’s their chance. Swing by Princess Fairytale Hall at Magic Kingdom to say hello.

Tiana is always thrilled to meet new friends in between her many adventures around the park, especially ones with dreams as big as hers!

5 – Dine with Tiana at 1900 Park Fare 

Guests can check out the newly reopened 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for a magical dining experience with beloved characters who bring wishes to life! Guests’ taste buds can embark on a bayou adventure when they sample Tiana’s delicious gumbo at the buffet for dinner.

6 – Enjoy Some of Tiana’s Famous Beignets

From savory to sweet, salty, and spicy – our culinary teams have crafted some Bayou-inspired dishes to enhance guests’ visit. And of course, no opening day is complete without something sweet!

For those craving a bite of something sweet, swing by Golden Oak Outpost from June 28 through Aug. 8 to savor Tiana’s Famous Beignets: light, sweet, and fluffy beignets dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled with honey.

We’re eagerly looking forward to welcoming guests to Walt Disney World to celebrate the debut of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, along with all the exciting ways we’re celebrating Tiana this summer. We’re looking forward to seeing guests drop on in!
