The Princess Tiana character from The Princess and the Frog is taking on new roles at Disneyland starting this week.
Beginning today, Princess Tiana will greet visitors at the Disney Princess Fantasy Faire in Disneyland an area where visitors can learn about being a princess and meeting the characters.
Before, Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen met guests at the Court of Angels in New Orleans Square. That meet-and-greet area closed Sunday, said John McClintock, a Disneyland Resort spokesman.
A new atmospher show featuring Princess Tiana is scheduled to start Friday in New Orleans Square. The show, called Princess Tianas Mardi Gras Celebration, is set to include jazz musicians and five parade performers doing music and songs from the movie.
The show will go on between five and seven days a week, depending on the season.
