We are goin’ down the bayou, goin’ down the bayou, goin’ down the bayou, taking you all the way…All the way to Walt Disney World, that is!

During the Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products panel at D23 Expo this Sunday, it was officially announced that Tiana and the gang will finally get their very own bayou-themed restaurant.

This all-new restaurant is coming soon to Reflections — A Lakeside Disney Lodge, the all-new unique hotel and proposed Disney Vacation Club resort at Walt Disney World located adjacent to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Since this new hotel and resort is inspired by wonders of nature and artistry of Walt Disney, it’s only fitting for it to be the new location of a “Princess and the Frog”-themed restaurant, since that film features stunning animated sequences of the natural beauty of the bayou.

Though we don’t know too much about what this restaurant will involve, we can still get excited and ready to celebrate!

“The Princess and the Frog” is one of Disney’s most beloved films and features the first ever African American Disney Princess on a journey to make her (and her daddy’s) dreams come true. But of course, Tiana runs into a few bumps in the road when she meets Prince Naveen and soon they both find themselves on an adventure through the bayous to seek the help of the powerful “voodoo lady.” The movie is filled with fun surprises, amazing songs, relatable characters, and of course stunning animation, so we’re excited that it’s influencing an all-new Walt Disney World restaurant.
