Rock ‘N’ Roll Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith… and Linda

Sharing is caring!

It’s been a little over a week since I returned from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.

I think I’m ready for a reunion.  Is now a good time for everyone?  Ha.  Just kidding.


One treat we received were legit backstage passes to ride Rock ‘N’ Roll Roller Coaster.  We had the opportunity for a private ride early before the park opened… and to have the whole thing filmed.


The ride & experience was super cool, of course.  But this story is more than just riding a roller coaster.

What I love about social media is – well- it’s social.

I’ve talked to many of these ladies for months and years online and developed relationships with them.  But living states away can mean I will never actually meet them.

One of the people I really hoped to meet someday was Linda Scruggs from Unboxed Mom and MOMtility.

I finally got that chance thanks to Disney Social Media Moms.


I adored Linda online… but I fell in love with her on a roller coaster.

You know when you find someone you just click with?  That is Linda.

Side note:  there was a time when I was refused to even consider riding this roller coaster- or any coaster for that matter.  I was TERRIFIED.

Fast forward to the DisBroads getting me onboard.

Obviously I’m having a blast. HA!

See- those people you meet online can talk you into anything!

Roller coaster scardy cats: clearly I know what I’m talking about when I say it gets better.

So there’s your backstory.

Forward to conference day and Linda.

We lined up backstage waiting for our limo to arrive and I saw a little of the old me in Linda.

Ok, a lot of the old me.

She was calmly creeping away from her spot in line, looking through the gift shop to the door.  Basically, she was freaking the heck out.

I totally knew that feeling.

I did what any good sponsor would do:  I offered to ride with her.

She took the offer of a rehabilitated coaster phobic and took the plunge.

Here’s the video from our ride and the interview we taped before we got on.  It’s pretty epic.


Okay… do you see why I love her?!

We bonded, big time, over Aerosmith.  I can’t think of a more magical experience or a better person to share it with than Linda.

Thanks for bringing us together, Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.

Do you love the Rock ‘N’ Roll Roller Coaster like I do?  Or are you more like Linda…?

I was invited to attend the 2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.  As an attendee, I received park tickets and a discounted room as part of my conference fee.  I was not asked to write anything in exchange, but you know me, I HAD to tell you all about it!
