There are SO many exciting things coming to the Disney parks in 2023.
New nighttime shows will premiere at both Disney World and Disneyland, the thrilling new TRON coaster at Magic Kingdom will finally open, and we just got some exciting new details about a NEW restaurant coming to Disneyland later this year!
At the 2022 D23 Expo, Disney announced that a NEW restaurant themed after The Princess and the Frog would be coming to Disneyland — and now we have some more exciting details! Tiana’s Palace will open in New Orleans Square in Disneyland Park later this year!
It will be the newest restaurant on Orleans Street, with “peach-colored walls and fancy green wrought-iron balconies” where guests can “find elegant fixtures and appointments reminiscent of Tiana’s life and friendships.” Disney shared that Tiana’s Palace will have “pizzazz and flair” with flavors inspired by Tiana’s friends and adventures in New Orleans in this quick-service restaurant.
The menu will feature an expansion on the current favorites served at this location, in addition to exploring seasonal flavors and offering New Orleans classics. And, although it’s not a character dining location, you might still spot Tiana out and about in New Orleans Square from time to time.
Disney Imagineers partnered with Disney Animation artists from The Princess and the Frog “to bring this story to life at Disneyland Park.” The film designers were actually inspired by the exterior of the original French Market in New Orleans Square when Tiana’s Palace was designed for the movie!
Disney shared that in order for this work to begin, French Market Restaurant (and Mint Julep Bar) will be closed beginning on February 17th, 2023, and will reopen as Tiana’s Palace later this year. But don’t worry — the Mint Julep Bar will reopen and serve its famous mint juleps and Mickey beignets later this year too!
We’ll keep an eye out for more details — so stay tuned to DFB!
