A new show featuring Princess Tiana, the leading character in Disney's Princess and the Frog movie, has launched at the Magic Kingdom and is on its way to Disneyland.
Tiana's Showboat Jubilee is designed to promote the December 11 release of the animated movie. It opened on October 26 at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and will kick off at Disneyland on November 6.
Princess Tiana, Disney's first African-American princess, is joined by Prince Naveen and other characters from the movie. The Magic Kingdom's ten-minute show includes songs from the film's soundtrack, and sees the characters parading through Frontierland before boarding the Liberty Square Riverboat. Pre-selected guests from the audience take part in the final section as the boat sails around Frontierland towards Splash Mountain before the show ends with a burst of fireworks.
Tiana's Showboat Jubilee will run at the Magic Kingdom for 10 weeks, showing three times daily at 12.15pm, 2pm and 3.45pm. In addition, guests can meet Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen behind the Liberty Square Christmas shop.
Disneyland's show will be similar, beginning with a Mardi Gras-style jazz procession around New Orleans Square. It will then continue onto the Mark Twain Riverboat. It is set to run four times daily at 11:15am, 12.45pm, 2.45pm and 4.15pm though to November 30.
Disneyland and Walt Disney World are both offering discounted child tickets to see The Princess and the Frog movie from select locations in the parks through November 22.
