Disney Social Media Moms conference Post #1

Oh- my- goodness!!!

I arrived home yesterday from the most amazing three days I think I have ever spent at Walt Disney World. And believe me, I have spent lots of amazing days there! The Disney Social Media Moms conference was more amazing than I could ever have imagined! Of course, it didn't hurt that I missed the "Blizzard of 2010" while I was gone :)

I learned far too much at this conference to put it into one blog post. So, I will be splitting into several posts over the next few days. And yes, I will devote an entire post to being stuck on Space Mountain and the rescue by the Fire Department :)

The first day of the conference was Wednesday. After checking into the Polynesian and getting the AWESOME swag bag prepared for us, I met up with several other Disney bloggers, including Jackie Gailey, Traci Curth, and J.L. Knopp.

We puttered around the Magic Kingdom for a little while before we headed back to get ready for the evening's fesitivities at ESPN Wide World of Sports.

We were treated to a presentation by Meg Crofton and several other high-level WDW executives who went into details about "What's Next, What's New". The biggest excitment was generated by the annoucement that the Electric Light Parade would be making a comeback this summer at the Magic Kingdom. It will have both familiar floats, as well as some new favorites. There will also be a new drop sequence for the Hollywood Hotel Tower of Terror and a new summer fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom.

After the annoucement, we were treated to an amazing party. There was TONS of amazing food, character greetings, and dancing. I got to meet many of my personal celebrities, including Laura Spencer, Leanne, and Lou Mongello.

Let me tell you- Disney sure knows how to throw a party! We partied and ate until we were ready to go back to the (amazing) Polynesian resort and rest up for the next day of the conference.

  1. Jackie and I took the same, very small, plane down and back and didn't meet each other until we were on the plane home! I think I may have missed you as well - the names & faces are such a blur in my post-WDW haze.

    Thanks for the great recap. So much fun was had by all!
