After lots of anticipation, it is finally here.

Right now, both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are currently in the progress of adding numerous new Princess and the Frog additions to the Parks. Fans of the movie are absolutely thrilled that it is getting so much representation inside the Parks.
