BREAKING: Walt Disney World and Disneyland Re-Imagineering Splash Mountain to “Princess and the Frog”
Today we are thrilled to share the first glimpse of a project Imagineers have been working on since last year. Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland in California and Magic Kingdom in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined. The new theme derives from an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.
Be Our Guest Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom to Reopen as Table Service Only for Lunch and Dinner with Prix Fixe Menu; Breakfast Discontinued
Upon reopening, the restaurant’s popular fast-casual breakfast and lunch service will not return. The restaurant will only offer table service at lunch and dinner with a 3-course prix fixe menu served at both lunch and dinner time. Each meal costs $62 for adults (ages ten and up) and $37 for children (ages 3 to 9) plus tax and gratuity.
