Disney Social Media Moms conference Post #2- Thursday

After resting up for the evening at Disney's wonderful Polynesian resort, we were up and ready to begin our adventure on Thursday at 7 am. The first part of our morning was a talk at Epcot's American Adventure Pavillion. We got to enter Epcot via the back entrance. This was both exciting and depressing; I'm still trying to block out seeing the "behind-the-scenes" details of Epcot in order to keep the magic alive. :)

Our speaker for the morning was Guy Kawasaki- founder of Alltop. Guy Kawasaki is a fabulous speaker. He spoke to us about how to effectively use Twitter to promote you and your business. And of course, like everything Disney does, the breakfast was amazing (even if we did only get one cup of coffee all morning).

After breakfast, we went to a special celebration for Disney volunt'ears' and a special announcement. At the announcement, we saw several celebrities, including Carter Osterhouse (SWOON!).
Disney had built the world's largest canned good structure, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. The big reveal was done by none other than Ty Pennington.
After the big reveal, we were on our own in Epcot for a few hours. We got enjoy some of the rides and then a wonderful meal at Le Cellier.

In the afternoon, we joined up with Lou Mongello of WDW Radio. Lou taped a live podcast with nine of us Disney bloggers at the conference (see the names, Twitter handles, and blog links below). It was an experience we will never forget!

That evening, we were treated to a dinner prepared by Robert Irvine from Dinner Possible and a private concert by Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato.

It was another AMAZING day by Disney, who proves they completely understand social media, and also that they know how to treat their guests!

And yes- this is the evening that I got stuck on Space Mountain. That's a separate post coming soon! :)
And here is the wonderful group of Disney friends that participated in the podcast with me. If you don't already follow them- DO IT!
