Recently I attended the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On the Road in New York City.  This was my first Disney Social Media Moms event. I was incredibly excited to join Gary Buchanan of Jennifer Labit, Gary from Disney Parks Social Media and his team for breakfast and the morning of speakers.

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On the RoadI loved the Disney Monsters University centerpieces!  I also loved hearing from Gary Buchanan about all of the wonderful new things happening at the Disney parks.  My family has never been to either Walt Disney World or Disneyland, and I personally have not gone since seventh grade.

The New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World sounds amazing, and in a family with four sons and a somewhat geeky hubby the Star Wars Weekends sound absolutely right up their alley!  As avid Disney Cars fans (the little boyz have their room done in a Cars theme) the Cars Land in Disneyland was so stunning to look at.  And I loved the new Mickey and the Magical Map production!

The morning continued with Jennifer Labit, the founder of Cotton Babies & creator of bumGenius, Flip, and Econobum, worldwide leading cloth diaper brands.  She spoke of entrepreneurial spirit and grit.  Of creating a company and not taking no for an answer.  I loved that she said you need to define who you are and what is important to you, and not to sway from that.  Sometimes being a stay at home mom and a blogger working from home I am pulled in so many directions.  This was great advice that I have taken to guide my decisions!

Continuing with the women owned businesses, there was a panel of women entrepreneurs who spoke of and answered questions about what it takes to be successful.  It was a great collection of women with fire and passion, and they offered great advice.

Finally, Michelle Stepney, PR Content Director at Walt Disney World, spoke to us.  She had a great presentation about using traditional media to further our social media businesses.  As someone who has ventured into radio to help promote Momma D and Da Boyz in my local community, I really valued what she had to say.

I was amazed at how much punch this morning conference packed!  They really delivered top notch speakers and great content.  I am so happy to have participated in this event.  If the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On the Road is coming to a city near you, I highly recommend it!

 

 

I received no compensation for this post.  I was invited to attend the event at no charge.

  1. That is so awesome! I was hoping to attend the Disney Social Media Moms / Disney on the Road event in San Francisco, but was unable to drive up. However, I did follow along and participate online and felt so inspired afterwards!
