Celebrating My #DisneySide at Disney Social Media Moms on the Road Philadelphia #DisneySMMoms

June July 2014 051

Way back in May, I received an email that literally made me jump out of my seat. “You have been invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms on the Road event in King of Prussia PA”. Just the idea of attending a Disney related event would have been enough to make me giggle with glee, but knowing that this was an official Disney event right here in our neck of the woods just put me over the edge! The Disney Social Media Moms on the Road Celebration is  an exclusive event held in three places in the U.S. with the goal of bringing together social media mom bloggers and enthusiasts in an effort to share, learn and network while experiencing the magic and wonder of Disney.

Without another thought, I sent back my response and from that point on, I cannot tell you how excited I was leading up to the event.

The event was held bright and early last month in King of Prussia. Normally the thought of battling morning traffic would have put a huge damper on the idea, but thanks to the magic and the excitement that comes along with all things Disney, despite some traffic and a few delays, I made that entire ride there with a huge smile – and not an ounce of frustration! Goes to show – we could all use a daily dose of Disney in our lives, right?

The event was filled with many familiar faces as well as many new. I felt right at home mingling as I waited in line to enter the conference area. It was fun seeing many Disney inspired outfits and accessories. Leave it to these awesome bloggers to display some gorgeous Disney inspired fashion!

As we overflowed into the room, we were greeted with décor that made us feel like we stepped right into Disney! Every ounce of space in the room shined with #DisneySide inspired décor. There were plenty of photo opps, props and backdrops – and even a pin trading session to get the conversations started among the crowd!

The speakers at the event were so inspiring and really made me reach into my heart to think about what it is that I really want with my life – as a Mom, as a career, as a dreamer, for myself.  I found myself asking what can I do better?  How can I be the best me that I can be while still finding my own happiness and self worth?  From the inspiring panel of Mompreneurs, who have not only built their businesses from the ground up but have also done so while balancing work and family to the incredible Disney Social Media team that assures that all things Disney are accessible via social media while still incorporating the love, the magic and the laughter that we all love so much about Disney – each and every presentation had the entire room totally captured and engaged.  One thing is for sure – Disney believes in family.  It made me stop to really think about what my priorities are – and a gentle reminder that although all things in life can be balanced, family and self must always come first.

All in all, the event was exciting, enjoyable and incredibly informative. As I arrived home, my kids were jumping with glee asking when we can begin planning our next trip to Disney. It’s been about 4 years since we visited – I am thinking it is definitely time to start saving for a well deserved magical family getaway!

Many thanks to Maria Bailey and the BSM Media team, all of the speakers and Disney Social Media team for all of their hard work. I had such a blast and I am so very grateful for this unforgettable opportunity!

And last but not least, BIG thanks to Mickey Mouse for taking the long trip to Philadelphia to hang out with us!!  Hope to see you and all of your Disney friends soon!

Me & Mickey
