Pixie Dust Baby: Starring Princess Regina Luongo!


Some of my favorite articles to write have been the Disney Fan features! When deciding to re-vamp this blog back up, I thought I wanted to bring that back, but then decided an awesome twist would be to do a Pixie Dust Baby feature! Who doesn't love seeing cute babies, right? Even better when they are all decked out in Disney!!! I knew exactly who the star had to be for my very first Pixie Dust Baby, Regina Luongo! I met her mom, Angela, through her Disney Fan Facebook Group, Disney Fans and Friends, and fell in love with her and did a Disney Fan Friday post on her two years ago! (which just so happened to be one of my most read articles so I am not the only one to love her!). From the time she announced her pregnancy, I have loved following her journey into motherhood!
The posts and pictures of Regina are always so adorable and filled with so much love and joy, you cant help but smile back!
I hope you enjoy getting to know this sweet Princess as much as I do!




HOW OLD IS HE/SHE AND WHEN IS HER BIRTHDAY? She turned 1 on September 15!


HOW MANY TIMES HAS SHE VISITED DISNEY ALREADY?
3 trips as of right now. Once when she was 3.5 months old and 7 months old. For her 1st birthday we went to Disney World and on a Disney Cruise




DID YOU HAVE ANY FUN DISNEY BABY ANNOUNCEMENTS?
Yes.
We first announced we were pregnant with a set of baby disney ears that said Baby Luongo and took a nice family photo to announce we were expecting a new set of ears to our family:

When we found out we're having a baby girl I had a photo done with Mickey & Minnie holding a baby girl disney onesie and a photo in front of the castle saying we are having a girl


DID YOU HAVE A DISNEY NURSERY THEME FOR HER BEDROOM?
Yes, Regina's room is a pretty hot pink with a large tiara over her crib. It has a Disney Castle photo and tons of little disney trinkets throughout the room. It's a very girly bedroom fit for a princess.





DOES ANY PART OF HER NAME HAVE ANY SPECIFIC DISNEY MEANING?
Yes, Regina in Italian means Queen and fit perfectly for our little girls personality . I also am obsessed with Once Upon a Time and fell in love with the name Regina when I heard it on the show. It was such a unique name and I wanted something you don't hear often for a girls name





WHAT MAKES YOUR CHILD STAND OUT AS A DISNEY BABY?
Regina stands out as a Disney baby because she already loves visiting Disney as much as we do. People always say babies are to young to appreciate Disney but Regina really enjoys it. She is already into meeting characters and seeing the parades/shows. She loved the fireworks as well. She gets very excited when she sees the characters and squeals with excitement. We enjoyed every moment we spent with her at Disney and having her dressed like me makes it that more magical.





TELL US ABOUT A SPECIAL DISNEY MOMENT WITH YOUR CHILD?
A very special moment with our daughter was when we took her on her first trip and we were all in matching outfits. We spent a lovely night together at the Magic Kingdom and we watched wishes for her first time. Just standing there with her as a family was everything. It was something I always dreamed of and now it was a reality. It was just perfect.




ANY FUN DISNEY COSTUMES OR OUTFITS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?
As many people know I am obsessed with Disney outfits. I love to match from head to toe and now I get to match with Mommy and Me Disney outfits.





DOES SHE SHOW FAVORITISM TO ANY DISNEY CHARACTERS YET?
Minnie Mouse she is absolutely in love with. She adores her. Her little arms and legs flapped like crazy when she saw Minnie and held on to Minnie so tight. It was precious.



DOES SHE HAVE A FAVORITE DISNEY MOVIE OR DISNEY SHOW?
She loves to watch Mickey Mouse clubhouse and so far has seen bits and pieces of several princess movies like Frozen, Moana and Beauty and the Beast.





TELL US ABOUT ANY DISNEY DREAMS, HOPES, AND/OR GOALS YOU HAVE FOR HER FUTURE
For Regina I hope she enjoys Disney as much as I do. Just to have that special bond with her and something to share with her will be a dream for me. I would love to eventually live in Florida and really get to enjoy all the magical times with her but for now our 2-3 trips a year will be perfect for us.


We are also someday going to Disneyland and Aulani but not for a few years.

I am looking forward to seeing who she chooses as her favorite Princess and how much she loves the rides and characters.
Would love to see her working for Disney someday .



We could not help but share some more adorable pictures of Princess Regina!
These pictures fill our hearts with so much joy and happiness and hope they do the same for you as well!
