Some of the destinations and events mentioned on this post were complimentary or a media rate was extended as part of my attendance to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration–an invite-only conference held by Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line.
The second day for Disney Social Media Moms Celebration was all about family time. One thing I loved about the event was that it was family oriented. We all know that to be successful you have to have a good balance between your professional and personal life. Being able to spend quality time and create memories with the family was a great way to gain a new perspective about what I want the blog to be in the future years.
We woke up really early to get on the private transportation provided for us and we headed to experience Animal Kingdom’ that was open just for us. Yes, you read that right. We had Animal Kingdom’s latest addition, Pandora: The World of Avatar to enjoy without anyone else at the park. Imagine being able to ride the very popular attraction that normally has waiting lines of 3 hours without any wait. We rode it multiple times because first it is that awesome and second we knew that probably would had never happen again.
Flight of Passage definitely has become my favorite Disney ride of all the parks. We enjoyed an Avatar inspired breakfast and we also rode the Na’vi river ride.
One of the coolest thing that I did not know before visiting Animal Kingdom is that you can adopt your own Banshee. At one of the stores located at Pandora: The World of Avatar area, you will find several Banshees available to purchase. They are so cute, and off course since we were celebrating my son's birthday we had to adopt one.
After enjoying Pandora: The World of Avatar and once the park was open to the public we decided to explore Animal Kingdom and use our magical fast passes provided during the conference. Another favorite at the park was the Kilimanjaro Safari. Hop on the safari bus and enjoy seeing animals while you feel that you are at a real safari at Africa.
We knew we were going to have another day at Animal Kingdom so we decided to head to Epcot Center to use our magical fast passes. So we did that. We went to Epcot Center, we rode 5 attractions and then we jumped on the Disney buses to head to Hollywood Studios because the conference had some activities prepared for us.
One of the coolest ones, was being able to meet Ryan Wineinger , Disney’s imagineer and learn about the development of Hollywood Studios’ Toy Story Land opening June 30th, 2018
Toy Story Land is one of those super magical lands that everyone in your family is going to love to visit. Here is what you should expect:
We ended the night with a great dinner at PizzeRizzo sponsored by GoGo Squeez. We had some pasta, drinks and sweets. Although we were supposed to watch the fireworks there were some technical issues so we missed those. As much as we wanted to go and enjoy the parks, our feet and bodies needed a break. So we decided to call it a night and get some rest.
In case you missed it, here it is Day 1
Stay tuned for Day 3 because it includes lots of updates about upcoming Disney movies!
