When I received an invitation to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I literally jumped up and down like a crazy mom does when their kids get a good grade, score a goal or clean their room without asking. But for once, this was about me. To be recognized and invited was such a wonderful surprise. It made all of the long hours and hard work feel worth it.
The coolest part of this the celebration was for the first time it was a Land and Sea conference. This meant my family and I would spend 2-days at Walt Disney World and the rest on the Disney Wonder 3- Night Cruise to Castaway Cay.
If you were wondering what this amazing conference is all about, I decided to break down the scoop for you by each day.
Don’t forget to watch each video! So many photos I couldn’t decide what to include.
Port Orleans Riverside was our home for the first few days on land. Disney makes things so special with its signature touches. The refurbished rooms whisked you away to the bayou and memories of The Princess and the Frog. Tiana was a princess on their list to meet. Would they get a chance?
After dropping off the luggage, I met with the team at the Hanes Personal Shopping Experience. While sipping Mimosas and nibbling on tasty treats, I got the latest fashion scoop on the newest styles for women, men, and children. Cool fabrics and the latest products were at my fingertips to touch, feel and shop. I can’t wait to show you my selections. Stay tuned!
American Tourister also provided me with this Star Wars inspired luggage. Can you guess which character? This carry-on bag filled with fun items for the trip came in handy during my week.
They also provided us with an amazing tote bag filled with goodies. You can check it out in the recap video below.
To kick-off the conference, influencers were invited to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Festival of the Lion King Theatre. Delicious appetizers and fun drinks were flowing as I mixed, mingled and reconnected with moms and influencers from all over the United States.
The much anticipated Pandora – The World of Avatar opens May 27, 2017. A miniature replica was on display for us to see and take pics.
After dinner and dance party in the Harambe Market area, the group was presented with The Rivers of Light show which opened on February 17th. It’s a spectacular light show. Read my “Rivers Of Light Debuts At Animal Kingdom” here.
As you leave the center of the park, the Tree of Life magically comes to life with its bright colors and animation. It lights up approximately every 10 minutes until the park closes. So plan accordingly with your little ones!
