We are beyond excited about this unique, hybrid mom/family conference at Walt Disney World! And we are honored to be co-hosting the event with Walt Disney World, Resourceful Mommy Media, Mom Bloggers Club and Mom Select.

UPDATED TO ADD:

By the way, you do NOT need to bring your family.

There will be several of us moms who are not bringing our families and we’ll have a great time hanging out together and enjoying some fun mom-ME time. So, if you aren’t able to afford to bring your family, or you just want to enjoy some time with blogging friends, you can hang out with Christine, me (Susan) and others.

IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND:

If you are interested in attending, please email us at 5minutesformom at gmail dot com with DISNEY CONFERENCE in the subject line and we will send your email on to Disney.

We’ll be tweeting about the conference with #DisneySMMoms

UPDATE: The conference is now full, as of January 11th, 2010. If you are absolutely desperate to attend, email us and we can try and get you added to the wait list.


Please Note: We are co-hosting this event with WDW. We will however not be earning any money from this conference or from conference fees. We just adore Disney and are thrilled to be involved with this innovative conference. Susan and my travel and conference fees are covered by Disney, but our travel for our families is not included, in case you are really curious. :)

Actually it’s more than $350 if you have more than 4 people in your family. It would cost us $500 (plus travel) and as amazing of a price as that is for Disney (Disney!!!), right now it may as well be $5000 for us. I SO would love to go, and take my family but we just can’t afford it right now. I wish it were another few months out so I could have some time to try and save up. :(

My son with autism(I mention this because it is relevant) asks every single day to go to Disney World, but he simply doesn’t understand the concept of money and that as a family we can’t afford it, even this awesome deal. So sad and bummed. I have not attended a conference yet and would have LOVED for this to be my first!

Just finished my registration, I am so excited this is my first conference! I got my invite through Amy via a tweet she sent out yesterday. My husband is a bit skeptical thinking it’s too good of a deal, he thinks it’s a scam but I told him with big names like 5MfM involved it’s bound to be legit. Can’t wait!

Do the other three people have to be family, or can they be non-blogging buddies?

And to be honest, while I always enjoy mixing and mingling with other bloggers, I am taking advantage of this as a great family vacation.

The price and perks are unbeatable!

Sent you an email! This sounds like so much fun. I started my blog as a way to keep family & friends informed, plus my own personal journal per se. I’m thinking of changing the direction of my blog, or maybe just starting a new one. This may be just the boost that I need.

Hoping we can go!!!

41 Toni January 11, 2010 at 9:33 am

Do you know when the info is going to be sent out? Last night, I was looking into getting an extra night at the resort so we can fly in the day before – the rate was $267 per night and OVERNIGHT it went up to $411! Every day is costing us more so I hope the info comes soon.

I’m sorry I can’t make it this year! I love the idea of attending a Disney-sponsored conference…and including the whole family is positively brilliant! I hope more conferences follow suit.

Have a wonderful time! I can’t wait to read your re-cap of the event.

P.S. I hope the next conference is at DisneyLAND. I love that place…and it would be much more doable for an Arizona mama like me! :)

I’m beyond ecstatic about attending this conference. I will be leaving my precious kiddos at home due to having more family members than are included in the price, but I’m am looking forward to the Mom-ME time (as ya’ll so aptly put it). There will be so many incredible women there. My hope is that I’ll be able to form some incredible friendships without distraction.

Those numbers are having a huge effect on the Mexican economy.
With an online discussion, you get that politician uncensored (to a degree).
With each new job, the hospital may require you to pass a competency exam or they can terminate your employment, for those
who do not test well, this can be very stressful.
