PHOTOS: Mint Julep Bar Reopens With New Lanterns Ahead of Tiana’s Palace at Disneyland

Mint Julep Bar in Disneyland has reopened after an over six-month closure. The bar was closed while the attached French Market Restaurant was transformed into Tiana’s Palace. Mint Julep Bar remains relatively unchanged, although it has been repainted with new lanterns hanging over it.

Mint Julep Bar serves mint juleps, of course, as well as coffee, tea, cocoa, and sodas. They also serve Mickey-shaped beignets in packs of three or six. There is mobile order available.

The panels are decorated with black leaves on curling stems, like what you might see in a bayou.

Tiana’s Palace will have its grand opening on September 7. Disneyland Resort shared a recent look inside the new restaurant, which is directly inspired by Tiana’s restaurant at the end of “The Princess and the Frog.”
