Event Description

Almost 15 years ago, audiences were first introduced to the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ classic The Princess and the Frog—all set in the magical city of New Orleans. To celebrate this marvelous modern classic, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club invites you to dig a little deeper and join us as we step into the story of The Princess and the Frog with D23 Down in New Orleans!

We’re leaping into the swampland magic of the Big Easy, with a jazzy party you’ll never forget, and a big-screen presentation of the film that started it all, all set against the backdrop of the storied city and cultures which inspired it. This Crescent City confab is a can’t-miss moment for any fan looking to take a delectable taste of what Tiana’s wondrous hometown has cooking!

Still from The Princess and the Frog film, featuring Tiana leaning out from a moving Trolley looking out into the French quarter of New Orleans. The Villainous Dr. Facilier is present in the shadows, fanning out a deck of Tarot cards. Next to the Trolley is a colorful “second line” parade processional of Jazz musicians.

What’s on the Menu:

  • D23 “Dreams Do Come True” Grand Finale at the New Orleans Jazz Museum: “Grab somebody, come on down! Bring your paintbrush, we’re painting the town!” Guests will journey on down to the New Orleans Jazz Museum for a taste of the food and the music of the Big Easy! You better believe this celebration is going to taste as good as it looks! Guests can sample from an array of locally inspired cuisine featuring creole classics like Mini Muffulettas, Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffee and of course some man-catching beignets!
    The New Orleans Jazz Museum is a treasure-trove of history and culture, recounting the conception of jazz in New Orleans and its impact on the world over. You’ve heard of Louis Armstrong? Mister Sidney Bechet? All those boys and their instruments live on in the exemplary exhibits of this Museum! Speaking of which, the magic of music will be flowing forth like the mighty Mississippi, as guests will enjoy a few more dreams coming true throughout the night—with live New Orleans jazz performances, other musical entertainment, and a few sensational surprises sprinkled throughout. You never know who might stop in! We’ve got a few friends on the other side…
