I have to thank Disney for inviting my family to enjoy the magic. My eldest son Will, came out of his shell on this trip. My daughter Kat was enchanted, and even Henry who was not feeling well the first few days, enjoyed himself. We were spoiled at every turn and even my husband and I were surprised to rediscover the magic that is Disney!
I also have to say that Disney really and truly "gets it". I've always admired Disney's pr and marketing, but on this trip I was able to see that they understand and respect the "social media moms". We were considered as members of the press and the professionalism with which we were treated went way beyond anything I've ever experienced as a blogger. As a professional I've always been able to see the stark difference between the way I am treated when I wear my blogger hat vs. consultant hat and it was just really refreshing and exciting to experience being respected as a blogger/social media influencer. I can't wait to sit down and share some of the exciting new things that Disney will introduce this year. I'll also be writing about the speakers we were treated to, the entertainment, and yes of course, you know that I'll be pulling apart and looking at the different observations I had from a business/marketing/pr sense.
