Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration: On The Road
Did you get a sense of enthusiasm from the title? If not, let me tell you, “WE’RE SO EXCITED!!!!” And not just a little bit excited, but “We’ve found one of the 5 winning, golden, Willy Wonka tickets” kind of excited. Now that my friend is serious excitement.
If you’ve been around the blog for awhile, you know we are big Disney fans here at Parenting In Northern Kentucky. Until now, our most exciting Disney blogging experience was our #DisneySide @Home Celebration”. It was so much fun and we were honored to have been chosen to be a part of it.
In April, Disney hosted their Social Media Moms Celebration at Disneyland, CA. How one is invited to this is a bit of a mystery. Disney seeks out those they wish to invite and does so. Needless to say, it’s a pretty huge deal to be invited. The next best thing to the annual celebration is the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration – “On The Road”. Leaving the Disneyland homestead, Disney is venturing out to 3 US cities: Phoenix, Chicago, and Philadelphia. For this event, bloggers wishing to attend are given a small window of time to submit an application. Once an application is submitted, one sits back and patiently (or not so patiently) waits for the date when those chosen receive invitations. May 12th was the invitation date this year and if you are a blogger, you didn’t miss it. Social media kind of blew up with excitement as the lucky few opened their in-boxes to find invitations. We are one of those lucky few!!
Being the newer blog that we are, we had
coins to throw in fountains, rabbit feet hanging from the computer, 4 leaf clovers framed, and our fingers crossed but were also realistic that there was a good chance we wouldn’t be chosen. So, when we opened the invitation to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration – “On The Road”, Chicago, we were ecstatic (and still are)! So, on June 17, you will find us experiencing one of the most exciting opportunities offered to us since starting this blog. And don’t think for a minute, you, the awesome readers will be left out. We will be tweeting and sharing all the excitement with you!
