We’ll be honest: we’re over here scratching our heads, wondering why Disney World has yet to add a Tiana’s Palace restaurant! A Princess and the Frog-themed restaurant was announced as part of the Reflections Resort, but we want Tiana’s Palace right now, Disney! It’s not every day a Disney restaurant presents itself so effortlessly, and with a Princess and the Frog-inspired makeover coming to Splash Mountain, now’s the time to fulfill ALL of our Tiana’s Palace dreams!
While we wait (kinda) patiently for Tiana’s Palace to one day become a reality in Disney World (in the meantime, there is a Tiana’s Place restaurant aboard the Disney Wonder cruise ship), we found some new merchandise over at BoxLunch that will at least help us imagine that the restaurant exists in real life!
You could say that the first item up is the shirt of our “gourmet dreams!” This Dip-Dye Long Sleeve T-Shirt is a great way to rep your love for Tiana’s Palace!
The long sleeve t-shirt is available now on BoxLunch’s website for $32.90.
You can often buy souvenir glassware from your favorite restaurant, so why not buy one from Tiana’s Palace? This Pint Glass features Tiana and says “Stirring things up cajun style.”
This pint glass is also available on BoxLunch’s website for $12.90.
Perhaps the idea of Tiana’s Palace is inspiring you to try your hand at cooking yourself! Be sure to stock up on the essentials, like this three piece kitchen set! Take a look at the tiny detail in this kitchen set: the pot holder says Tiana’s Place, which is the name of the restaurant her father imagined. By the end of the movie, it becomes Tiana’s Palace to emphasize her royal title!
You can come up with restaurant dreams of your very own with this set! It’s available on BoxLunch’s website for $19.90.
Finally, we found another apparel item to rock your support for Tiana’s Palace everywhere you go! This Coach’s Jacket features a logo for the restaurant on the front.
On the back, there’s a large design featuring Tiana and it says “The Best Food in New Orleans!”
If you’re as intrigued by this jacket as we are, you can pick it up on BoxLunch’s website for $59.90
So here’s the plan: we’ll all dress up in our Tiana’s Palace apparel and walk around Disney World. Guests will ask, “Oh, I didn’t realize they opened a Tiana’s Palace restaurant!” And then we’ll say back to them, “They haven’t opened one yet, but would that be awesome?” And then we’ll ALL have the idea in our head, and Disney World will have no choice but open up a new restaurant! That’s how opening a new restaurant works, right? Well, we can just keep dreaming for now!
