    Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee coming to the Magic Kingdom

    A new live show event will begin at the Magic Kingdom starting October 26th called Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee, themed to the new Princess and the Frog film. According to the LA Times, it will feature a live Mardi Gras style ‘musical cavalcade’ that will pass through Frontierland and head over to the Liberty Belle dock where they will board the riverboat, along with a few lucky guests. The boat will move forward a bit and then stop to perform a brief show along the river’s edge several times each day at both Disneyland at the Magic Kingdom theme parks.

    I find it hard to believe it's going to be at WDW too because MK doesn't have a New Orleans Square.

    Agreed. It sounds pretty cool but a mardi gras parade marching through Frontierland? A bit baffling.

    Believe it, here's the article from the LA Times, courtesy of the Disney Blog. In regards to theme, I'm betting that the showboat idea was conceived for New Orleans Square in Disneyland, where it made sense, and it was then cloned and shoehorned into Frontierland / Liberty Square at WDW.

    At least it's a big in-park promotion, more than Bolt ever got.

    Interesting. I bet this will screw with the Riverboat rotations and Ops. I wonder if they are implementing a second steam person help keep the boat from High Pressuring during this show...either that or allowing them out of the cage before TSI.

    Now I am curious. I mean it could be worse, at least this (coming to both parks) could be quick and fun. I'll go see it.

    I think they should have it at Port Orleans French Quarter. Makes sense thematically, but they would never put it at a resort.

    Re: Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Though I was just thinking...Disneyland's waterfront is open. Florida's is not. Its a tree-lined waterfront in Frontierland. That boardwalk is going to become mighty crowded during a busy day.

    And if this becomes a normal thing...I shutter to think of what they'll do to our beautiful waterfront. You can say "it is only temporary"...but so was Cinderellabration...and those changes are still around.

    What could they possibly do to the waterfront? As long as they have a sound system I don't see why they would need anything else to put on the show.

    Also, I think Cinderellabration's set additions actually improved the Castle stage... it made it feel less like a bland platform and more like an actual stage. It definitely goes down as a plus in my book.

    So what if they don't have a New Orleans section, the parade or celebration could move through Tomorrowland for all I care, as long as it is new entertainment in the Magic Kingdom.

    Cut down trees for improved viewing a la Cinderellabration.
