Tiana’s Palace Restaurant Set to Open in Disneyland

The Enchantment of New Orleans Square

For the lovers of fairy tales, a new culinary paradise is set to open its doors in Disneyland Park. Prepare to be swept off your feet by the charm, elegance, and exquisite taste of the Bayou at the eagerly anticipated Tiana’s Palace restaurant. Inspired by the one Princess Tiana created in Walt Disney’s enchanting film, “The Princess and the Frog”, this eatery is ready to take you on a journey through the rich flavors of the Crescent City.

The Regal Experience: Exterior Brilliance

Stepping into Tiana’s World

From the moment you approach Tiana’s Palace, you are welcomed by an emerald green wrought iron railing and awnings dyed in vibrant yellow and green, reminiscent of Tiana’s beautiful formal ball gown. The lit marquee that reads “Tiana’s Palace” seems to sparkle above a metallic gold balcony, capturing the essence of Mardi Gras in its colors and ambiance.

An Expansion of A Fairy Tale

The opening of Tiana’s Palace is more than just a restaurant; it marks the next step in a larger narrative that began with Eudora’s Chic Boutique featuring Tiana’s Gourmet Secrets last year. The story will continue to unfold with the opening of the Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction in 2024. This growth serves as a loving tribute to Princess Tiana’s story, paying homage to both her fictional journey and the real cuisine of New Orleans.

Inside the Palace: A Culinary Wonderland

A Taste of Tradition

Inside Tiana’s Palace, you’ll find a collection of elements that tell the story of Princess Tiana’s life. From lilies represented on signs and plaques to frog porcelains, cookbooks on shelves, and her father’s favorite gumbo spoon, there are countless touches that hint at Tiana’s rich past in New Orleans. Every detail is a chapter in her story, an invitation to relive the tale.

From Screen to Reality

Interestingly, the restaurant’s design itself is inspired by the French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square, which featured in “The Princess and the Frog.” The iconic silhouette of the restaurant has been faithfully replicated, making this not just an eatery but a real-world extension of Tiana’s animated world.

A Menu Fit for Royalty

Culinary Creations and the Return of the Mint Julep Bar

A royal feast awaits at Tiana’s Palace, where the menu is crafted to represent Tiana’s story and honor the unique flavors of New Orleans. Ingredients are thoughtfully sourced, even directly from Louisiana when possible. Plus, the return of the Mint Julep Bar ensures that refreshing cocktails are part of the package.

And for those who can’t wait to dine at this regal venue, the Disneyland app will enable mobile ordering for these new dishes once the location opens.
