Where to See “Homeless” Tiana at Disney World

As Splash Mountain is being converted to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure over the next two years, there is no ride in which to see her. Guest and fans of Disney princesses can, however, see an audio-animatronic Ariel at Journey of the Little Mermaid, meet Belle and her friends at Enchanted Tales, and even snag a glimpse of Snow White at the end of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. But until the new attraction featuring Tiana debuts in 2024, she has no official “home.”

So where can The Princess and the Frog (2009) fans meet the leading character?

Princess Fairytale Hall

The first location would be Princess Fairytale Hall. The spot near Cinderella Castle is a signature attraction that lets little ones (and adults) meet and greet Disney princesses. Guests can get a great photo op and autograph of the former frog princesses while also meeting other characters.

Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen can be spotted (in their human forms) on a float featuring several Disney princesses in the Magic Kingdom’s Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. You won’t get the same one-on-one interaction as with a traditional meet and greet, but it still provides a fantastic opportunity to snap a photo of the popular princess.

The most entertaining option until Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens is Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire, which takes place at Cinderella Castle. Fans of The Princess and the Frog (2009) can dance and sing along with Princess Tiana, Prince Naveen, and Louis. Excerpts of songs and music from the film include Down in New Orleans, When I’m Human, and Dig a Little Deeper.

It will be exciting to see a fully functioning audio-animatronic version of Princess Tiana on the reimagined Splash Mountain. But in the meantime, her loyal subjects and fans can still plan to meet the princess in multiple spots within Magic Kingdom.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
