Disneyland, known for making dreams come true and renowned for its captivating sights and delectable dining food, produces another magical experience with the new addition of the restaurant, Tiana’s Palace.

In New Orleans Square, Tiana’s Palace pays homage to Disney’s first black princess, Tiana, from “The Princess and the Frog.” Tiana’s Palace provides guests with an unforgettable culinary experience and a heartfelt tribute to the inspirational journey of Princess Tiana.

Princess Tiana, an energetic young woman aspiring to open her own restaurant, embarked on a memorable journey throughout the New Orleans bayous. Given that Princess Tiana taught us that with dedication and a sprint of magic, desires can come true, it is perhaps no surprise that her restaurant is filled with delectable menu items that encapsulate Tiana’s Palace’s flavors, atmosphere, and spirit. Situated within the heart of Disneyland’s New Orleans Square, this eatery transports guests to the colorful and flavorful you could imagine from the movie.

The culinary offerings at Tiana’s Palace are not anything short of excellent. Pulling from menu items and the culinary vision Princess Tiana had for herself during the movie, the refined and delectable taste of New Orleans showcases a mouthwatering array of Creole and Cajun dishes. House Gumbo, House-filled Beignets, Cajun Spiced Half chicken, Beef Po’Boys, Buttermilk Cornbread, and more, all prepared to perfection, are just a sample of the fantastic flavor of what awaits diners. The gumbo is a standout, with its robust flavors and authentic Creole spices, and remember the cornbread.
