I’m invited! Last week I got a magical email, and I have been floating with happiness since! An invitation to Disney’s Social Media Moms “On-The-Road” Celebration! Since only so many invitees can attend the coveted Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Walt Disney World®, Disney is bringing the magic to four different cities around the country. Two on the East Coast-New York and Washington, D.C. and two on the West Coast-San Francisco and Seattle.
Honestly, I was a little surprised and grateful I received an invitation. I don’t have my own blog, and I have only been a contributing writer on this blog for a couple of months. However, I submitted my information on the Disney Social Media Moms website, crossed my fingers, and hoped for some pixie dust.
As the time is getting closer for the half-day conference, I am getting more excited and nervous. I have seen some of the other invitees, and there are some awesome bloggers out there! I’m keeping it real; I am intimidated. Janice told me I needed business cards. Umm, what? Sometimes I wonder what right I have being there. Well…I thought, I was invited! I am just excited for the opportunity to hear the motivational speakers and learn from the best! I can’t wait to be motivated, empowered, and emboldened and decide what steps to take next. Everyone has to start somewhere, right?
One of the benefits of the conference is to create an exciting network of influencers from the community. The possibility of new friends makes me giddy! I have made so many wonderful online friends from the application process of the Disney Parks Moms Panel; sometimes I feel my internet Disney friends understand me better than my “real life” friends. That’s why I love this whole Disney thing; the magic just extends to every place you let it. Thank you, Disney, for linking seasoned social media experts and newbies together!
If you are interested in attending a Disney On The Road event, I believe they are still accepting information here: http://www.disneysmmoms.com/disney-smmc-on-the-road/. It is not only for Disney bloggers. In fact most of the information isn’t about Disney. I will be attending the celebration in Washington D.C. (Maryland, actually) on June 7th! Look for me on Twitter-@Lolalambchops-as I tweet during the conference. Follow the hashtags #DisneySMMoms and #DisneyOnTheRoad and expect some fun!
