    THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE: The Ultimate Disney Experience is an exciting extravaganza that will feature—for the first time ever—all nine of the Disney princesses (including the film’s Princess Tiana, Disney’s newest princess), as well as exciting Bayou games, movie archives, how-to presentations from Disney animators, Studio tours and more. The Experience was created as part of a special engagement which invites guests in Los Angeles and New York to see the film Nov. 25-Dec. 13, 2009, at the Walt Disney Studios Theater in Burbank, and in Clearview’s historic Ziegfeld Theatre in NYC. ABOUT THE MOVIE: Walt Disney Animation Studios presents the musical THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, an animated comedy set in the great city of New Orleans. From the creators of “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin” comes a modern twist on a classic tale, featuring a beautiful girl named Tiana (ANIKA NONI ROSE), a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana. THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG marks the return to hand-drawn animation from the revered team of John Musker and Ron Clements, with music by Oscar®-winning composer Randy Newman. Rated G, THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG opens nationwide Dec. 11, 2009.
