It trended on Twitter. Posts popped up all over Facebook. Instagram showed some a-maaazzing swag. Social media Disney fans are drooling and asking what exactly is the
and how can we be part of it?
Well done, #DisneySMMoms, well done. You got our attention and our interaction!
What happened 10 days ago was the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, a conference devoted to the power of social media. First held in 2010, this has been THE coveted E-Ticket attraction for Disney social media fans.
How do you get an invite? Yeaaaahhhh… I wish I knew. I’d tell y’all, I promise!
I can tell you that it’s a big deal. A BIG DEAL, y’all.
A couple months ago squeals of delight were “heard” around the internet as bloggers opened their emails to discover Pixie Dust. They received the Golden Ticket, were called up to The Show. Even I, a baby blogger, knew this information was BIG and it thrilled me to see many of my Twitter pals get the invite.
What it is:
An event held to discuss and encourage social media with a Disney twist.
A convention with meetings and events held through out the weekend to motivate and inspire the social media crowd.
What it’s not:
An all expenses paid trip to Disney. You are invited to the event, but still pay your conference fee. You also get discounted rooms, tickets, dining, etc, and the option of bringing family, but it is not all expenses paid.
But man, where else would you get to see this? Go Mickey, Go Mickey, get your groove on!
Some additional highlights:
One attendee won a night in Cinderella’s castle! You have to read OC Mom Blog to see all the great pictures she posted! SWOON! Did you see the potty?! Amaaazzzinnnggg.
One of the cool things the bloggers learned about was the new Disney Story app. Bob, with MagicalDaddy.com Shared his first day of the conference through the new app. His kids are way cute!
Ashley from Fiddle Dee Me has a few posts up as well. She’s also a runner and participated in the fun run- check out her adorable video on why you should stay at a Walt Disney World resort!
The conference is over for 2013. However, the magic is not gone. Disney is taking the social media show on the road this summer!
Stops include New York, Maryland, Washington, and California this June. More details on how you can become part of the social media celebration can be found here.
And watch your emails next spring. The 2014 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration will be held in April… at Disneyland Resort! Mark your calendars and get your ears ready to travel!
