When I was younger I remember watching Family Matters the episode when they went to Disney. I remember that being one of my favorite episodes but Family Matters wasn’t my favorite show I actually preferred Full House who also had a Disney episode. At the time I didn’t realize that I liked the Family Matters episode more because I could see myself. #RepresentationMatters
Fast forward to my first child Azaleah I knew I wanted to bring her to Disney World for her 5th birthday! So I basically planned a trip for 5 years because I thought that would be the perfect age for Disney…wrong 🤣 her brother was almost 2 during that time and when I saw the joy in his face I knew I had been wrong all along. There is no perfect age for Disney because Disney is perfect for all ages in different ways. So after our first trip in January 2017 I had been bit by the Disney Bug we went back that same year in October. This is just my Disney story but there are so many more stories from family’s with Brown Skin and I want to share that.
So I have my blog and I share my trips but I thought wouldn’t it be amazing to type in a hashtag and be able to see all these beautiful brown babies enjoying the magic of Disney in one place! #BrownBabiesinDisney Not only that what if we became a whole sisterhood! Out of my friends I’m the Disney one and none of them truly understand why I keep going back but if you are a Disney Mom you know exactly what I’m talking about and I thought it would be great to have a community of Disney Moms of color behind the hashtag.
A few years ago my best friend told me a student of hers said that only white people go to Disney and that hurt my heart to hear a child think that way. Black families do go to Disney, travel and have the ability to enjoy whatever makes their heart happy! So if you know any Disney moms go share the page and tag them! If you are a Disney mom come introduce yourself! I can’t wait to see all of our Brown Babies in Disney 🤎
