Ray gets his Evangeline at Princess Fairytale Hall

Most of Princess Fairytale Hall is stately, refined, aristocratic. There aren't that many inside jokes in this attraction. But the Tiana portrait in the main hall caught my eye for including two fireflies. One is clearly Ray from the movie. But the other, apparently meant as a companion, wasn't in the movie. The implication is that this is Evangeline, his impossible-to-attain love interest from the movie. For Ray to finally get his Evangeline here in this magical place just drives home the message all the more: everyone's wish is granted here!
