The Walt Disney Company has introduced a new program in its Anaheim Disneyland, California, on Friday that features Princess Tiana, the heroin in its soon-to-be-released animated movie "The Princess and the Frog."

This is the second time that the Disney's latest creation was included in the "Tiana's Showboat Jubilee!" that also features appearances of Prince Naveen, Louis, and Doctor Facilier, at any Disneyland. On Oct. 26 the same show debuted in the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

The show begins with festively dressed, bead-tossing revelers leading Disneyland visitors from New Orleans Square to the Mark Twain Riverboat dock, then continues onboard the Mark Twain paddlewheel boats.

It was described by critics as a rousing and colorful procession that also includes daytime fireworks and puppetry. It will be presented four times daily through Jan. 3, 2010.

"The Princess and the Frog," which opens on Nov. 25, marks a return of traditional hand drawn animation after nearly 6 years since Disney gave up this technique in favor of computer technology.

The storyline centers on young Tiana, a waitress and aspiring restaurant owner living in the French Quarter of New Orleans during the Jazz Age, and a prince named Naveen who has been transformed into a frog by the evil voodoo magician Dr. Facilier.

Tiana will be the first black princess in the Disney Princess franchise. She will also be the ninth Disney Princess.
