I know the last night at the See Ya Real Soon party they have separate lines.

Gorgeous Tiana on the Magic

One of our favorite character photos of our daughter from our last cruise (on the Magic) was with Tiana. She was walking around deck 5, dancing with whomever strolled across her path. She was absolutely gorgeous and its one of the first photos I share with people from our cruise. Plus, being from the south, I LOVE her southern accent.

I love her dress, I think it is actually one of the most beautiful and the detail is amazing.

I would also agree with the other posters who said it's probably not about race. My daughter is into some of the princesses but not others, and it's really about whether she liked their movies or not. She has no interest in Pocahontas or Tiana because none of our kids liked those movies at all (I didn't really like them, either) and she doesn't like Snow White because she's never seen the film. She loves Cinderella and Jasmine, though, and has seen those films several times.

I can't agree more - it is more about popularity - not race. I think it is wonderful that the children don't see color and go to their favorite for whatever reason they may have (favorite movie, dress, hair, whatever!!) Sorry, but by pointing this out does seem that you noticed the race eliment - not the kids.

We were on the magic this past Feb and there were separate lines for the characters. Tiana's line was short in the beginning but later grew.

Interesting! We were on the Feb 23 sailing and the single line for all 5 princesses stretched all the way to Parrot Cay (at least on the 1st sea day when we were there to see it). There were hundreds of people in line! Perhaps they separated them so that they could be shorter for crowd control purposes.

But, that's ok to notice. I think it's MOSTLY about popularity, but not all. Sometimes it's easy to dismiss something because you don't feel that way or because we want to believe that everyone has pure motives. That's not reality though. All kids are innocent, but not all parents. Just like the OP noticed, some of those other parents may have nudged them away from Tiana. I don't think that is the case, but I am not naive enough to believe that it's not possible. I'm reminded of some people's evil thoughts when I read a story on Yahoo and some kind of way, the comments turn racist. Please don't begrudge me for being open and honest about my and other black people's feelings. It's just thoughts, nothing more.

We were just on the Dream and Tiana's character was just as "full" as the others.

I'm not the OP, but as a black man, these are things that we notice. I think I saw about 20 black people on my Dream cruise in Jan. We are already the minority on the ship, so those things are noticed. With that said, I have never felt uncomfortable and the diversity of the crew really helps that. Even though times are better, there's always that thought about not being viewed in a positive light. It will never stop me, but I'm not oblivious either. To the OP, I will say that sometimes things can be racially motivated subconsciously but not racist. Some kids just gravitate to what they're used to. They're used to Cinderella and the other princesses because some may look like mommy or just because they've been around longer.

I can answer your question with one of mine.... who is Princess Tiana? What movie did she come from?

As far as race, I have another question for you. Is there many minorities on the cruises. I have been on 4 Disney cruises and could not tell you the race breakdown. Have never had a reason to think race on a cruise.

Wow, Odd title for the thread!
I agree, its about a classic princess, popular and timeless over a newer princess. We have seen Princess and the Frog movie and enjoyed it. But I will sayy, with "Cinderellas castle" being a symbol of WDW for us, we see her as more iconic same as we recognize Jake and Neverland Pirates but Mickey is by far more of a symbol of Disney and a character we would head towards.
