I'm going to veer off of my personal Disney story to tell you about the most fabulous event I just attended. I was lucky enough to be invited to Disney's very first Social Media Moms Celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL.
Social Media has recently become a very important & successful way of communicating for businesses all around the world. I had the opportunity to hear some very influential people speak about their social media experiences, both personal & professional. I'll talk about each one in future posts.
The first event of the 3-day celebration was a tailgate party at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. I had heard of this but had no idea that it was so big! It was a real treat to see it. We got to learn about what was up & coming for the complex. Very exciting! Here is a video covering the relaunch! We also learned more about the upcoming Fantasyland expansion including the Electric Light Parade move! I'm so very excited about it!
We had a great dinner of hamburgers & hot dogs & all the trimmings. We played & interacted with fellow mommy-bloggers & their families as well as with several Disney characters all dressed up in their sports attire.
We met & chatted with Leanne Jakubowski, Director of Social Media at the Walt Disney World Resort. Below is a picture of me, Minnie, Traci, Leanne, Debbie, & Jennifer down in front!
We also were able to meet one of my personal idols, Laura Spencer, another Social Media Manager at the Walt Disney World Resort. I asked Laura my very first question way back at the beginning of 2008 when the Walt Disney World Mom's Panel made its debut & find it fascinating that she is now in charge of the panel! Here is a picture of Lynne, Debbie, Traci, JL, Laura, me & Jennifer.
This was just the beginning of what was in store for us! Leanne & Laura did such an amazing job of planning this spectacular event for us! Thank you! :)
