We hope you had a truly magical day! Tomorrow starts early for those of you who pre-registered for the fun run brought to you by GoGo squeeZ.

Following the short run to Epcot, you will have time to get changed and head to breakfast.

Breakfast begins at 8:00am in Yacht and Beach Club, Grand Harbor North & South, and is open to entire family. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Incredible Second Day!

We know we kept you busy today, but we truly hope you had a wonderful time learning from some of the best social media influencers in the business. We were all inspired, motivated and definitely entertained. Your tweets, posts and photos kept us trending throughout the entire day, and what a way to end the evening with Mickey’s Beach Bash! Now it’s time to get some rest for another magical day.

Tomorrow many of you will head out early for ride mount filming opportunities. Please make sure you review your personal itinerary to know when to meet the bus. Transportation will begin as early as 6:30AM and buses will depart promptly from the Yacht and Beach Club Convention Center. Please be sure to be on time!

As you heard from Jonas Rivera this morning, you and your families get to see a sneak peek of Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out.” A grab-and-go breakfast will be provided for you to enjoy during the film and transportation will be provided for the screening, departing at 8:30AM from the Yacht and Beach Club Convention Center. Please remember no cell phones or cameras will be allowed in the theatre. You may leave your devices in your room or you may check them with security at the movie theatre.

After the movie, we will offer transportation to the hotel, or you may head straight to the parks on your own. This is your time to enjoy the wonderful fun that awaits you and your family! We have ordered up a beautiful day of weather and hope you enjoy the time with your family creating lifetime memories at Walt Disney World Resort.

Have a great night, and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Great First Day!

We hope you enjoyed your first evening at the 2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Those first moments together, meeting and networking with new friends and colleagues, will be memories you will treasure for a long time.

Tomorrow is a jam-packed day starting early with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. in the Convention Center, Salons 1 – 4. From there we move right into the General Session where you will hear from inspirational speakers throughout the day on topics to help build your brand and motivate you to greatness. Reminder: Breakfast and General Session are limited to the conference attendees.

While you’re soaking up all that information and knowledge, your family can head to the Theme Parks to find their Disney Side. Will they seek out their favorite Princess or Pirate or hurry to New Fantasyland to find the million diamonds on the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train? There is so much to experience including the final days of this year’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, a must-see for the entire family.

Tomorrow at the conclusion of conference day, we have a special surprise for you and the family at the Yacht & Beach Convention Center. Bring your cameras for a private photo opportunity with some of your favorite characters. It all takes place from 5:15 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Ohana means family and tomorrow’s family dinner will be held here at the Yacht Club Resort along the beach starting at 7:30 p.m. Bring your appetites and be ready for delicious food and lots of Disney pixie-dust and entertainment.

We’ve got a lot going on tomorrow. Can’t wait for the magic to begin!

Welcome!

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Walt Disney World Resort.

Since the very beginning, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has been creating special places where families and friends come together to share magical experiences, making memories that last a lifetime.  Being focused on families is what drives us to create experiences the whole family can enjoy, and that’s why we love hosting one of the only family-friendly social media conferences.

This is an exciting time for us, and we’re looking forward to sharing with you some of our newest family experiences and giving you a glimpse at what’s on the horizon.

Here in Orlando, we’re busy working to bring the world of the blockbuster film AVATAR to life, completely reimagine our retail, dining and entertainment district with Disney Springs, and create a brand new Frozen attraction in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot.  And around the world, we’re preparing to open Shanghai Disney Resort next year, add our first Marvel-themed attraction in Hong Kong, and, of course, celebrate Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary later this month.

I know that a fun weekend is ahead of you, and I hope you enjoy your time at Walt Disney World.

Sincerely,

bob

Packages have been sent to your homes and emails will be arriving in your inbox soon, filled with information about the upcoming journey you’re about to embark on with your family.

We have a TON of information to share with you in the next two weeks. Most of this will be to help customize your experience at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.

A few tidbits from past conferences that may be helpful:

  1. Dress comfortably, especially with your footwear. If you’re participating in the Fun Run, don’t forget to pack your running clothes and shoes.
  2. Your credentials will be needed for ALL conference events. Your family will need credentials to get into the dinners and other activities. Don’t lose them.
  3. Be ON TIME! We have tight schedules and will need everyone to be at locations at the designated times. It will all be listed in your itineraries.
  4. If you have any issues or concerns, let our event team know so they can help to try to resolve it.
  5. It rains in Florida. We have a rain back-up plan for the outdoor events and will relay that information to you if we have to implement it.
  6. Some event transportation will require you to travel separate from your families, due to different start times for some activities. Please be sure to read your itineraries carefully.
  7. Enjoy all the new friends you’ll be meeting over the next few days. Some of them may turn out to be lifelong relationships.

We want everyone to have a great time and enjoy the best of Walt Disney World Resort!! The countdown clock is on!
