A new tie-dye Tiana Spirit Jersey is available on shopDisney and will likely be at Disney Parks soon.
The Spirit Jersey has an all-over tie-dye print in two different shades of bright green. Across the front is a screen print of two water lilies — like those on Tiana’s wedding crown — made of dark green linework. Princess Tiana herself is on the back among more flowers and fleurs-de-lis.
“Princess Tiana” is autographed beneath one of the water lilies on the front. Tiana has a bob haircut with a feather tucked into it.
“Love what you do… do what you love” is also on the back next to Tiana.

More “The Princess and the Frog” representation is coming to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, with Tiana’s Bayou Adventure and Tiana’s Palace.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Coming Soon
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure picks up after the events of “The Princess and the Frog,” and will be coming to Disneyland and Magic Kingdom as a replacement for Splash Mountain. In 1927, Tiana founded the Tiana’s Foods co-ops, which is located in a salt mine, where cultivators grow crops along the waters. During Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, Tiana and alligator Louis venture into the bayou to find animal friends. They’re preparing a special Mardi Gras celebration for the people of New Orleans.
The scene depicted in the above concept art is “the thrilling moment you first drop into the bayou and encounter some friends both new and familiar.” Louis and a band of animals will be playing zydeco music, a blend of rhythm and blues that was created in Louisiana. The band of animal friends includes an otter, a rabbit, a raccoon, a beaver, and a turtle playing instruments made from natural bayou elements.
The ride will feature 17 new characters, including Prince Naveen’s younger brother, Ralphie. The Splash Mountain track will remain, but the attraction will get new set dressing and audio-animatronics. There will be multiple Tiana audio-animatronics, and she will have a new adventuring outfit.
The queue and attraction music is being arranged by award-winning artists PJ Morton and Terence Blanchard, who will mix classic songs from the movie with New Orleans classics and original compositions. The scent of beignets is also set to be pumped throughout the queue.
Some of the original cast will be providing their voices to the attraction, including Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Bruno Campos (Naveen), Michael Leon Wooley (Louis), and Jennifer Lewis (Mama Odie). Concept art shows Mama Odie in the crow’s nest of her crashed ship home, with bottle lights hanging around her.
French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland is also being transformed into Tiana’s Palace. Eudora’s Chic Boutique featuring Tiana’s Gourmet Secrets is already open in New Orleans Square.
A restaurant called Tiana’s Place — which was the original name Tiana envisioned — is on the Disney Wonder cruise ship. It features appearances by Tiana, live jazz music, and Louisiana-inspired, Creole, and Cajun food.
