Disney Social Media Moms Celebration — What a RIDE!

by Janice

A Magical Mix — A Fabulous Ride!

On March 17th, Mom Bloggers gathered in Walt Disney World for the second Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort — a magical mix of networking, learning, and celebrating the world of social media + moms. And oh, what a fabulous ride it was!

Networking

Every time I kiss my kids good-bye and board a plane, I remind myself of the value of face to face networking. It “costs” a lot to attend conferences and events, but the ROI of relationship building is infinite — and a lot of fun!

But the best part of Disney Social Media Moms is that I don’t HAVE to kiss my kids goodbye — they come with me AND they bring a whole new generation of networking! I love when my children get a chance to meet my blogging friends’ kids — and I find it brings us bloggers closer when our children become friends too.

Learning

The best conferences are the ones that not only bring you valuable networking opportunities, but equip and inspire you to be better at your craft.

Once again, Disney gave us a day of top quality speakers — Matt Jacobson – Head of Market Development for Facebook, Rene Syler – author of Good Enough Mother, and Chris Brogan – New York Times bestselling co-author of Trust Agents and President of Human Business Works.

Celebration

Disney celebrates. It is what Disney does best — celebrating the magic in life.

And Disney Social Media Moms Celebration did just that — it gave us a chance to celebrate our lives in social media. So we danced with Donald, sang with Belle, and drank in the magic in the place where dreams really do come true…
