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).

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.

Normally, I love snow as much as anybody else, and flight cancellations and delays don't cause me much panic. However, the Disney Social Media Moms conference is scheduled to start on Wednesday, and my mom is scheduled to fly into Philly on Monday to watch Matthew for the week. So- I was carefully watching the weather and the flights and panicking. Luckily, after the snow (finally) stopped, the sun came out and flights started moving in and out of Philly. Ok- it looks like that crisis has been averted.
So, at this point, it sounds like all is good- right? HAH! Looking at the extended weather forecast, it showed ANOTHER snowstorm coming into the area on Wednesday (the day I'm suppose to fly out). There is nothing that will keep me from this conference, so I started looking at options. Luckily, USAirways was fabulous! I called them and told them where I was flying out of and when, and they switched my flights so I can fly out on Tuesday- with no hassle and no charge! All it took then was a quick hop on Expedia to book a night at Disney's Pop Century Resort and I am good to go.
So- in two days time, I will be arriving in Orlando for the Disney Social Media Moms conference. I am so excited about this, and can't wait to start sharing what I have learned!
