Tyra Banks has officially befriended Princess Tiana, who makes her silver screen debut Thanksgiving week in Disney's latest animated film, The Princess and the Frog.
Supermodel and Emmy Award-winning talk show host Tyra Banks made three little girls' dreams come true this week with a free trip to Walt Disney World, where Banks joined the little princesses and Princess Tiana for a royal tea party, according to the official Disney Parks Blog.
Banks will feature her visit to Disney World on The Tyra Show on Wednesday, November 25, the same day The Princess and the Frog opens at select theatres across the United States. The show will run a second time on December 11, the date the film opens nationwide.
Disney World and Disneyland have released a new line of Princess Tiana merchandise, including the Tiana gown featured in the photo at top left (photo (c) 2009 Disney Media), Tiana wigs and tiaras, princess handbags, shoes, and more.
