In less than 30 days, my family and I will be attending one of the most coveted experiences of any family blogger. We have been invited to the Disney Social Media Moms Conference. We’d gotten the good news back in March, but its taken me this long to finally get a grip around what a blessing this is for me, and for my family. Even my Mom, Dad, and sister are tagging along for the ride to really make our very first family vacation as special as it ever could be.
If you haven’t heard about the Disney Social Media Moms Conference, it’s an invitation only event at Walt Disney World in Florida. A Disney Parks sponsored event, this conference is centered around social media minded Moms (and Dads). This year is extra special because the conference will be held during Mother’s Day weekend. It’s also extra special for us because once the conference is over, we’ll be driving to Georgia so my husband and children can meet my 90 year old Great-Grandmother for the first time. Her health isn’t great, so we want to use this time to finally get that picture of us together. So, this experience really will be a life-changing event, at Disney and beyond.
The kids didn’t know about our big surprise until Easter weekend when I showed them this video:
This is how they reacted to the news:
While both kids are so excited, I’ve seen our 2-year-old Duchess really get into everything Disney lately. Every day she asks when we are leaving. It’s the cutest. We’ll also be taking our first REAL road trip, driving from New Jersey to Florida. So, stay tuned for posts about how we’re planning for that trip and any great tips, tricks and techniques I discover about road-tripping with young kids. I also want to say thank you to everyone. For reading, for commenting, and for checking into 4 Hats and Frugal. I appreciate you all and I can’t wait to share what I learn at Disney Social Media Moms Conference with you.
