Well, Mickey Mouse didn’t call up attendees but the invitations are out nonetheless! 🙂
And if you can’t hear the squeals from excited bloggers online then you surely can’t be tuned in to the Disney Social Media Moms channel!
The Disney Social Media Moms hashtag on Twitter says it all. Enthusiastic bloggers are broadcasting their excitement over being invited to the social media conference. Invitations were sent out on Tuesday, inviting selected bloggers to the Disney Social Media Moms conference May 9th-12th at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, known as a sleek, ultra-modern Resort hotel with white-sand beaches, spectacular views and dazzling pools.
At the conference, social media savvy moms and dads meet for a family-friendly conference and network, learn, get inspired and share inspirations.
And I am proud to announce that I have been invited to this year’s 2013 Disney Social Media Moms conference!
Whoo-hoo! I am packing up the whole family and we will once again head to Orlando! I learned so much from the Powerhouse speakers last year and I took that information, amplified it and raised the bar on my blog and my business. Not only that but I challenged myself like the speakers urged and in a few weeks will launch a new (unofficial) Disney blog called DisneyDoodah that will be a place for families to converge who are CRAZY about Disney like me and my family!
I am excited about this year’s conference and the speakers slated to speak as well. This year’s conference host is Good Enough Mother herself, Rene’ Syler! She’s funny, witty and down to earth! (I took a pic with her at last year’s conference!)
