Original post:

There seem to be two new events brewing for D23 Gold Members that will celebrate both the Princess and the Frog film’s 15th Anniversary and the new attraction it inspired opening in Magic Kingdom Park. D23 has teased a few of the details, noting that one will be held in Disney Springs, with a special anniversary screening of the movie, accompanied by goodies from Gideon’s Bakehouse. While the second portion of the update remains a little more vague, D23 states that a separate ticketed event will allow D23 Gold Members the chance to be among the first to experience the new attraction, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. The details are not yet available of what, when, and how this event will take place, though the wording implies that guests will have multiple opportunities to ride before enjoying food and entertainment afterward. Here are all the details that we have so far:



New Tiana's Bayou Adventure D23 Gold Members Preview Event CR4299_D23_Princess_and_the_Frog_Screening_iris_v1_Florida-1-1024x576

This summer, fans of The Princess and the Frog (2009) can celebrate the rich legacy and exciting future of this treasured story with D23 Member events at the Walt Disney World Resort! A 15th Anniversary theatrical screening of the film at Disney Springs is first on the menu, where fans can enjoy the feature on the silver screen, accompanied by a special Mardi Gras-inspired cookie from the fan-favorite Gideon’s Bakehouse.

In the evening at a separately ticketed event, D23 Gold Members will have the opportunity to be among the first to enjoy the new Walt Disney World attraction, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, at Magic Kingdom Park. D23 Gold Members will be able to ride the attraction again and again, then take some time to enjoy the enchanting evening ambiance of the bayou with live jazz performances and tasty treats available during this celebration of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
