Tiana’s Palace Disneyland Princess & Frog Restaurant – Opening Period, Details
Disneyland is adding a new restaurant themed to Princess and the Frog. Tiana’s Palace is replacing a classic Disneyland restaurant in New Orleans Square.
The addition of the restaurant comes alongside the creation of the new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction that is replacing Splash Mountain at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
The new restaurant will be a counter service restaurant and is expected to reopen later this year.
What is Tiana’s Palace replacing at Disneyland?
Tiana’s Palace will be REPLACING French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square before Splash Mountain is transformed into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
This new transformation will feature elegant fixtures reminiscent of Tiana’s life and friendships along with the same flair as the restaurant from the film. Tiana’s Palace will serve authentic New Orleans food inspired by the film in this new quick-service style restaurant. This won’t be a character dining location but we can expect to see Tiana roaming New Orleans Square.
The menu at the previous French Market Restaurant will “expand on current favorites” plus explore seasonal flavors and offer New Orleans classics. Disney Imagineers will partner with Disney Animation artists from the original film to transform this long standing restaurant into Tiana’s Palace.
When did the French Market Restaurant Close to Begin the Change to the Princess and the Frog Restaurant?
Construction began on February 17 2023. Currently both the French Market Restaurant and Mint Julep Bar are closed at Disneyland. Don’t fear, the Mint Julep Bar will be reopening as itself and still serving the iconic mint juleps and Mickey beignets.

While the French Market and Mint Julep Bar at closed, the mint juleps and fresh beignets will still be available at Disneyland at the Royal Street Veranda and the Hungry Bear Restaurant. Guests are able to order at the widow or Disneyland mobile order these favorite treats.
When does Tiana’s Palace open at Disneyland?
An official opening date hasn’t been confirmed although Disney has said Tiana’s Palace will open “later in the year” followed by Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opening in Disneyland in 2024.
No official closing date has been announced for Disneyland’s Splash Mountain quite yet but I anticipate we’ll get one very soon since they plan on opening this new attraction next year.
No word has been given yet on a potential Tiana’s themed restaurant at Walt Disney World, but many fans are speculating that the Magic Kingdom will also receive a new Princess and the Frog restaurant to go along with their Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
