If fireworks dessert parties and private cabanas aren’t exclusive enough for you, Walt Disney World will offer another extra-cost experience inside the Magic Kingdom when Tiana’s Riverboat Party Ice Cream Social starts in Liberty Square on November 29. [Read more…]
A host of Disney characters welcomed Princess Tiana this morning following her horse-drawn carriage ride to Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom. Tiana is featured in the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures animated film “The Princess and the Frog” which marks Disney’s return to traditional 2-D hand-drawn animation.
Today’s special welcome was a one-time event in honor of Disney’s newest princess making her way to Walt Disney World’s most magical theme park. Here’s a video of the welcome ceremony:
Shortly thereafter, the official premiere performance of Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee took place. Following a jazz-filled procession through Frontierland and Liberty Square, Princess Tiana, Prince Naveen, Dr. Facilier, and Louis the alligator performed with dancers, musicians, and even park guests in a live musical production that takes place on board the Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Belle riverboat.
Here’s video of a complete show of Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee, including the processional beforehand:
