I paid a reduced fee to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Land & Sea Celebration. Although I received gifts, accomodations, park tickets, some meals and special perks from the sponsors and Disney, all opinions are honest and my own.
After spending eight days at the Disney Social Media Moms Land & Sea celebration I have over 700 photos of our adventures. Yes, you read that right, seven hundred.
This celebration was a beautiful, magical whirlwind of bonding, learning, networking, growing, making memories with family and of course, lots of fun. I have so much to share and since I can’t post all the photos at once, I decided to start off with this mini photo diary of some of the highlights of the celebration.
As a first timer to Disney and the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I was in complete awe of the level of planning, professionalism and meticulous attention to detail that was evident throughout the entire event. I was so excited about the cute “Minnie Vans” that I got to experience on my first day. These vans can be accessed via the Lyft app and are available for transportation between Disney parks and resorts for a flat fee.
Our week started off at Walt Disney World where we explored the parks, ate, had fun, conquered fears and made memories. While my Mom and husband did some exploring on their own, I attended the general session where I got tips and strategies to help grow my blog and business. We also got exclusive previews and sneak peeks of new park attractions, movies, destinations and more.
We got the first look and exclusive photo op with Minnie & Mickey sporting their new Pixar inspired outfits. Aren’t they cute?
Apparently you can’t go to Disney without having a Dole Whip so of course, we had to try it. It was tasty, refreshing and the perfect treat for the extremely warm Florida weather.
Bernetta & I at the general session. We had lots of fun in your new Pixar inspired hats.
Did I mention that we ate? I’m not a foodie but I definitely took the opportunity to try out lots of new foods while at Disney. We got our hands on the new, coveted rose gold madness cupcakes that Disney launched earlier this year. There were SO GOOD.
After our time at Disney World, we set sail on the Disney Dream for the sea portion of the celebration with stops in the Bahamas and Disney’s private island Castaway Cay. It was a blast and I loved that I could share this experience with my family.
This celebration and experience is something I will never forget. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend, and for the sponsors who did a stellar job at surprising and delighting us with exclusive swag, room drops and thoughtful gifts that made our trip even better.
In the coming weeks, I will be teaming up with some of my blogger buddies to share much more of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. We will be sharing tips on preparing for your Disney trip, what’s new at the Disney parks, must-see attractions, tips and tricks for a stellar Disney cruise experience, the scoop on Castaway Cay activities and more. You definitely don’t want to miss these posts.
