Earlier in the week, INO Mommy was invited to attend Princess Tiana’s official coronation into the Disney family. It was amazing!! I dressed my daughter up in her Belle costume and off we went to The New York Palace to have lunch with celebrities including (are you ready for this?)…
Tina Fey, Melissa Joan Hart, Kelly Rutherford, Audra McDonald, Nigel Barker, Brent Zachary, Alesandra Ambrosio, Matt Walton, Amy Landecker, Jenifer Lewis (“Mama Odie”), Jennifer Cody (“Charlotte”) and Michael Leon Wooley (“Louis”) along with Disney Princess cast members Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, and Snow White and Prince Naveen.
Natalie died and went to Disney Heaven.
Anika Noni Rose gave a little speech about how it was always her dream to be the voice of a Disney character. She would have settled for being a little bug, but ended up the first African American princess to join the Disney family. It was truly an amazing moment for her. I felt so happy for Anika that she got to be part of something so monumental.
As Disney’s newest princess, Tiana will be grouped with other Disney Princesses in new merchandise this summer. Here’s a look at some of the hot new items:
