GDP Special Pictorial: Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee


Today we have a special pictorial of a short lived show at Magic Kingdom, that everyone I talk to, and I mean everyone wishes it would return, Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee. Running from mid October 2009 to December 2009, this musical show took place on the Lilly Belle Riverboat that sailed around the Rivers of America in Frontierland. The boat stopped in front of the Thunder Mountain Bridge and the cast, along with a special group of guests, performed various songs from the Princess and the Frog. This short lived show was more of a promotion for the film, and many thought it would return for the DVD/Blue Ray release of the film, but it did not.

Disneyland also had Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee, but it ended when Magic Kingdom’s did, but it appeared again, on land and with a new name in New Orleans Square.

After the performance, the boat went on a tour of the Rivers of America and got a personal meet and greet with the characters from the film.

In my opinion, it was one of the greatest pieces of entertainment that have been in the Magic Kingdom in years.

  1. I completely missed Tiana's Showboat Jubilee! The showboat performance looks like it was a great Magic Kingdom experience. I wish it were still in MK today. :'(
