disneyland-princesses

Okay, Disney, I’ve had a bone to pick with you for a while

Where the hell is “Tiana’s Place”? Don’t get smart and say New Orleans, I mean for real. Why have you not made a Tiana’s Place at one of your parks?

I see no possible reason why you wouldn’t have built a restaurant like this yet. It’s cute, classy, and would be totally fun. You could serve creole food (as well as just plain american fair for the less adventurous.)

It would be pretty as hell inside

It would be fun for kids and adults, you could have dancing and a band playing. You could have a magician (bonus points if he’s dressed liked Facilier. Or train your Faciler face person to do short tarot card readings! Or get a mama Odi!)

The face characters could come in and out, but there’s always a set time Tiana and Naveen would be there (and if they aren’t you can say their in the kitchen cooking up a storm!) Jazz music! Lots of Jazz and swing. You could have workshops with Tiana for kids to learn stuff like the charleston, or cooking!

And then night or during the day a couple times a week you could have a second line (small New Orleans style jazz parade) with a brass band and Tiana and Naveen leading it, all the way to the restaurant.

And Oh my god, do you consider how many people would love a place like that to get married at the park! Having a wedding second line too? How fun that would be?

Disney, you are really missing out by not playing up the fact you have a character that opened their own restaurant (outside of Remi from Ratatouille but that’s another rant) and I’m really sick of The Princess and the Frog being among your more ignored movies. Put it at Epcot near the river or just anywhere! Heck, I know I stayed at a New Orleans style resort area of yours when I was like six! (Is that still around? I don’t remember what it was called, but there were Gator statues with instruments that would tie in really well…)

Anyone who knows me well knows how important Tiana is to me, so when I boarded the Mark Twain at Mickeys Halloween Party yesterday dressed up as Charlotte and heard the news that Tiana was on the riverboat you can guess how excited I was!!! I was expecting just some quick shots alongside her in her meet and greet area but God did I get so much more. I get to her meet and greet and we click just like that, we instantly start cracking jokes and laughing over everything and before I go I get the biggest hug and swear I was about to cry in that moment.

Later on when the line diminished for her meet I was standing a little ways away and she made her way over to me and asked me if I’d want to take more photos with her, we instantly started joking about how the roles have reversed and she was the one asking for the pictures now. Long story short I got to wander the mark twain with Tiana and formed such a close bond with her in that short amount of time that I felt like I was just hanging out with a close friend. I honestly felt all my dreams come true and her compliments meant the world to me (especially the ones for my dress, I put soooo much work into it and the reaction I got made everything worth it). She told me I was her favorite and called me a cutie so many times.

I’m still so excited over this and honestly this moment was the prime example of the magic of Disney being there no matter your age. Sorry for the beyond lengthy story time but I’m so damn happy 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
