Disney Celebrates Social Media Moms (That’s ME!)

Posted in Blog | 2 comments

 

The SuperFamily is embarking on our first life-sized family vacation in just a few short weeks!  In true “I’m a blogger, it’s part of my life” style…. it will be a hybrid family vaca and social media extravaganza.

For the third year in a row, Walt Disney World, in conjunction with Resourceful Mommy Media, Mom Bloggers Club, Mom Select and 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL.  This awesome combination of Disney Magic, Social Media Bliss and Family Adventure is happening April 26 – 29 and this year, attendance is by invitation only.  You can imagine how excited I was when those first invitations went out on January 25 and I found one in my email.

How amazing is it that I get to be a part of this conglomeration of cool?!

I am waiting anxiously to hear what the conference has in store for us this year….past years have seen speakers like  Renee Syler, Chris Brogan, and Guy Kawasaki.  I get to spend 3 days with some of my favorite people in the blogosphere (I’m not going to name them…less I miss any!)….and I get to meet their families!  In these interwebs and at conferences we do form amazing relationships with other bloggers….people who “get” what we do.  Those people are in large part who they are because of their families….to have this opportunity to meet this other part of their lives and to share mine with them?  Extraordinary.

I’m not going to even try to play cool when it comes to the fact that I get to take my kids to Walt Disney World.  I mean:  WALT DISNEY WORLD!!  I have been there once before….for one day….when I was in college.  That’s it.  I can only imagine what is in store for us….but what sits in the front of my mind is the look of sheer amazement and joy on the faces of all three SuperKids when they see that castle looming before them….or when walking down the street towards them is:   Mickey Mouse!  Not a lot in this world can make me happier than sheer joy emanating from my children.  Shhhhh…We aren’t telling them where they are headed until we arrive at the park!!

Like the crazy adventurous people we are, SuperDad and I have decided to road trip our little ol’ family down to Florida.  That’s right:  2 adults and a 6, 4 and 2 year old in the minivan….headed for fun.  Sounds sort of Griswoldian, doesn’t it? (I blame Shannan for making it sound feasible).

I’m planning like a mad woman.  I’ve researched tricks and tips for car travel with the kids (and by researched, I of course mean I scoured Pinterest).  I rest comfortably in the knowledge that even if everything goes to hell in a hand basket out the window, our disastrous misadventure will at least make for good blog fodder.  I may be blogging for my sanity.
