Welcome Princess Tiana!

It is official. Princess Tiana has arrived as a Disney princess in WDW. Tiana is the first African American princess that Disney has ever had and the new star of the movie "The Princess and the Frog" which will be released in November. And, let me tell you, what a welcoming she received this week.

Princess Tiana arrived in grand style at the Magic Kingdom, in her very own carriage ride and was welcomed warmly by the beloved characters of the Disney parks.

With her welcome into the Magic Kingdom, the Princess was also welcomed with her very own show, Princess Tiana's Showboat Jubilee. If you would like to see what the show is all about, and haven't seen it in the previous blog post, here is Disney's official video of the whole shebang, including the welcome show.

Louis the Alligator, Prince Naveen, and Princess Tiana, plus a cavalcade of others wind their way down the streets of Liberty Square, starting near the Diamond Horseshoe and make their way to the Liberty Belle where they all get on board for a rollicking good time.

To me, the show's main feature is to showcase some of the great songs from the movie. (And trust me, you will be humming some of them in your head later on!) And of course introduce you to the characters and some of the plot lines that go along with the movie. And I think they succeed quite well. Seeing the video clips (since I won't be able to see it in person before it disappears), it makes me very excited to see this movie when it actually does come out into theaters. It is all a very nice teaser for the newest Disney movie.

Another great introduction of the Princess this week is that little girls can now get their Princess Tiana on at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. The transformation can include a dress, a tiara, and more. This will be just another great opportunity for girls to get into Princess finest and feel like royalty themselves.

Also, guests who want to meet this new Princess and Prince will also get the chance to, at a special spot located in Liberty Square

So, grab somebody and come on down...and meet the newest Disney Princess, Princess Tiana.
