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
Day 3 was the last day of the land part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and one of the days with conference sessions. The day started early with a family breakfast, sponsored by Alamo and with opportunities for pictures with characters.
After breakfast, my son went to the hotel room to complete some of his homeschool assignments and I stayed at the conference rooms to learn a lot about new things happening at Disney parks and upcoming Disney movies.
First we heard from chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Bob Chapek. We learned about new things happening at the parks such as:
David Roark, Manager of Creative Photography at Walt Disney World Resort shared with us how the photographers at the park are able to get their incredible shots and tips to taking better photos
Then it was a great session about SEO by Terry Cox, Manager of Search Engine Marketing
With SEO being one of the most important topics for our blogs to do great with search engines, it was awesome to hear from the experts. Here is some of the things we learned about
We also heard from Amy Stanford. Senior Editor Babble on how to take your content to the next level
Then it was time for the super top-secret topics, where we needed to turn off our phones and computers. We heard form the team of Disney Animation about the movies
John Breckow, Director of Corporate Citizenship for Walt Disney Parks & Resorts had us not only motivated to volunteer but also in tears with all the amazing stories of wish granting and Make a Wish partnership. Did you know that to date there have been more than 10K wishes granted and it usually takes around 200 people to grant 1 wish? Disney just makes an amazing job at sharing the magic with those in need.
We also attended an expo with lunch and the opportunity to connect with the sponsors of the conference and share some time with other bloggers. Then we had family time at the parks and time to go packing for our cruise part on day 4 to 6 of the conference.
