Disney Princesses Then & Now

Not much has changed within the realm of royal roles! From the Middle Ages to today, take a look at how Princess Tiana (from Disney's The Princess And The Frog) fits in with a long line of Princess pageantry and practices!


No. 1: Food

Princesses Then: Princesses then, enjoyed delicious desserts called "subtleties." Made of sugar and jam, subtleties were sculptured in the form of animals and heroes.



Princesses Now: Princesses today cook up any number of tasty dishes. Tiana’s beniets are tasty treats that cap off any meal especially when it’s Tiana’s gumbo or jambalaya!


No. 2: Music

Princesses Then: Music was played as a princess enjoyed her evening meal. After the meal, there was often entertainment, including acrobats, animal trainers and storytellers.



Princesses Now: Jazz music is served up regularly at Tiana’s Place. With Louis The Alligator on trumpet and Prince Naveen on ukulele, Tiana’s court and her patrons enjoy the best New Orleans entertainment imaginable!


No. 3: Parties

Princesses Then: In the Middle Ages, princesses often enjoyed great festivities and banquets that were occasionally celebrated by hundreds of guest and sometimes lasted for days.



Princesses Now: Celebrations and festivities never go out of style – especially in New Orleans. Princess Tiana often resides over balls and banquets throughout the many days of Mardi Gras celebrations!


No. 4: Fashion

Princesses Then: Princesses of the middles ages enjoyed beautiful clothes, and their garments were often made of linen, silk and velvet. These beautiful gowns were often adorned with braid, embroidery and fur.



Princesses Now: As a master seamstress, Tiana’s mother Eudora often made clothes for Tiana and Charlotte from the finest cloth imaginable. Ribbons, lace and fine details shape the gowns of today’s princesses.


No. 5: Fun

Princesses Then: In the Middle Ages, little princesses enjoyed playing with toys. Playthings might include ceramic dolls or miniature cooking utensils.



Princesses Now: Little princesses today, still enjoy playing with toys. Cooking utensils were definitely a favored toy for Princess Tiana as well!
