Ultimate Disney Vacation Unboxed

I’ve been asked many questions both publicly and privately about the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Although I have no understanding of the who/what/where/how/why that surrounds the highly coveted invites, I’m happy to share my family travel experiences during this conference/celebration! It’s been a privilege to attend twice, and this year I discovered the Ultimate Walt Disney World Resort Vacation. It includes a land adventure and sea extravaganza aboard Disney Cruise Line.

During this social influencer/blog event like no other, we were treated to a magical itinerary that included family members, special events, inspirational speakers, insight into Disney attractions and upcoming entertainment, and lots of great family fun. The tricky part is upon my return, I’m challenged with how to properly express my enthusiasm.

Well, sometimes pictures are worth a thousand words. With that spirit, here is my extended vacation video and heartfelt reactions that unbox my Disney Parks and Disney Cruise Line family travel experience.

Busy freelance writing and blogging, an unexpected invite magically appears in the inbox, and it involves family travel to the happiest place on earth.

Checking the email 50 times, looking around to see if this is a practical joke.

Realizing there is so much to experience during a Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line vacation, that you should have extended your trip a few more days.

Perhaps this blog post has truly captured the full range of emotions that I was hoping to share by attending the 2017 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. I’d love to hear what you value as a blogger and your Disney travel experiences. I’m grateful to be involved with a forward-thinking community full of strong, smart, fun, and supportive women.

Family travel gives us the opportunity to expand our perspectives and nurture our creativity. Something a classroom can never give. It’s a blast to explore with kids and encourage their curiosity to grow. Here is my Ultimate Walt Disney World Vacation Unboxed video.

Disclosure: I was invited to attend the 2017 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and on Disney Cruise Line for a 3-night cruise to the Bahamas. I paid for transportation for myself and my family, as well as a conference registration fee. This included lodging, park tickets, some meals, special events, and entertainment. I was provided with some complimentary items. I was not asked to write posts by Disney or other sponsors for this event. As always, opinions are 100% my own.
