Disney Baby Honors Military Families
Guest post by Romina Camilng of Just Another Hat
Last week, Disney welcomed the arrival of its newest member, the Disney Baby. Actress Alison Sweeney, Winnie the Pooh and friends, and expectant military moms celebrated the occasion with a big party, Disney style. Disney teamed up with Operation Shower to host this event to honor military families. Operation Shower is a non-profit organization that supports the military by throwing expectant mothers a baby shower to help meet their needs.
Throughout the beautiful lawn of The Americana at Brand, stations were set up for guests to enjoy. They got to design their own onesie to take home, fish for a prize, get pampered with a hand massage, and sample baby and toddler foods.
Guests were also treated to a delicious brunch which included Hundred Acre Wood themed foods. The desserts were especially tempting. I’m just glad they were in mini portions so I was able to taste a bit of everything. The Master of Ceremony did a fantastic job entertaining the crowd with Disney trivia games. (He was pretty funny.) One of my favorite parts of the shower was listening to the musical talents of Blue Sky Riders; with Kenny Loggins’ beautiful voice singing “House at Pooh Corner.” Another of course, was meeting Winnie himself.
It was certainly thrilling to watch the flagship of the Disney Baby Store get unveiled. Just like its older sibling, the Disney Store, it is a magical place for kids (and parents, too).
My son could not contain himself as he wandered throughout the store. He was getting quite attached to a Nemo plush toy. The Disney Baby brand is dedicated to providing parents all they need to create magical moments for their baby. The Disney Baby store offers parents premier products for the nursery as well as baby’s playtime, bathtime, mealtime, and first milestones.
Of course, there’s something for moms, too. A line of maternity nourishing care products, exclusively created for Disney by basq, are available at the store for moms-to-be.
Although many Disney Baby products are exclusively available at the store and the online boutique, select products are available at brick and mortars stores like Target, Sears, Babies R Us and online at Amazon.
Thanks to Disney for allowing me to share in this very special and magical moment.
