We have packed the family up, hopped on a plane, and jetted off to sunny Florida. We have been counting down the days until this trip and now it’s finally here! We are here at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration where we paid our conference fee to attend and it’s been and going to be such an unforgettable trip that we are excited to share our experience!
We arrived at the Contemporary Resort and checked in bright and early. We were thrilled to see our room was ready just after 8 am. The hotel is amazing and Kora & Logan can’t get over that the monorail runs right through it. We opened the door to our room and were amazed at magnificent view!
Next I registered for the conference and was excited to meet and see again the members of the Disney Social Media Moms team. They are all so friendly and excited for everyone. I was excited to see that our name tags are so cute and the blogger lanyards are sparkly this year.
Then we were off to explore the parks. We rode the monorail right out of the middle of the hotel and headed off to Epcot for the day. I love Epcot this time of year because of the International Flower & Garden Show. It adds such dramatic and beautiful color to park all the while infusing everything with lighthearted whimsy.
We rode some of Kora & Logan’s favorite rides including Test Track, Soarin’, and Living With The Land. We then tried to make our way around the countries but it was slow going due to the heat and afternoon sun. It was still fun though and Kora & Logan and their cousins enjoyed playing the Agent P game in Norway and we stopped for ice cream often.
That evening there was a wonderful welcome reception and family dinner at Epcot followed by an incredible Illuminations fireworks dessert party. The dinner was delicious and featured Epcot Try It! healthy living initiative. There were also fun interactive games for the kids.
The entertainment was fabulous too. A band played using no instruments. All of the music was made using tablets, even the guitars had tablets in them that they strummed. I’ve never seen anything like it and it sounded great, the kids thought so too and spent much of the evening dancing.
We got back to the Contemporary and everyone was exhausted but happy after such a fantastic day so we crashed early.
I had a fantastic time on the run and although I was worried about getting up so early, once I was with the other bloggers excitement filled the air and it was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones along the way.
