WDW Wednesdays - Disney Social Media Moms on the Road

So this is what happens when I try to schedule a post... it never posted! So all this time I thought this was out there and it wasn’t. Shame on me for not double checking. But I still wanted to share how much fun I had at the event and thank Disney for the invitation. Better late than never. At least Toy Stoey Land is officially here and Star Wars Land is closer to being open! PS: I realize it is not Wednesday, LOL.

A few weeks months ago I was able to attend the Disney Social Media Moms on the Road Conferences. I cannot tell you how excited I was to be invited. My family and I love all things Disney, so it was great to be surrounded by other like-minded persons. The conference was a great learning experience. We were treated to breakfast and swag bags.

We also got to listen to multiple speakers who told us how we could reach our audiences on a higher level. I paid close attention as I want to grow my audience and deliver content that you will want to read and engage in. I’ve found that Disney is a topic a lot of families like to read about, and that I love to share. I’m not by far a Disney expert, but I will most definitely share my experiences with anyone who wants to know about them. I hope that you learn from my travels and can use them to your advantage.

I was able to hear Sarah Domenech speak about families, and how she has focused on the movement of Familia First, #FamiliaFirst. As a first generation Latina, I’m excited to see Disney reach out to the Hispanic community. As a child all I could dream of was going to Disney World, so when my 15th birthday came around I opted for a vacation as opposed to a fancy Quinceanera. Best decision ever!

Going to Disney World really can be achieved with planning and budgeting, which we all know describes me to a T. And of course I can only hope to get some pixie dust one day where my family and I can be part of the big celebration!

What is Disney Creator Days?

I’ve recently started spotting fellow bloggers that I follow mention that they were invited to Disney Creator Days. Usually around now one would be hearing about Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. So this has me wondering if this a replacement program.  I think if it is, it’s a great name choice as it includes all walks of life: moms, dads, grandmas, all around Disney fanatics.

Not too many details have been revealed, but as soon as I hear more I’ll be sure to share. From some of the posts I’ve seen it does sound like a small group of invitees but I hope this means that they are doing multiple events for creators, like they did with Disney Off the Road. Which I know I was excited to be invited to last year.

We know Disney is a great company and the event shouldn’t disappoint. I can’t wait to see what other creators experience at the event! Disney Mom forever!

Don't Forget Your Photo With Santa

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And what better way to get ready for the holiday season than with a visit to HGTV's Santa HQ. We recently had the opportunity to return to Fashion Outlets of Chicago, located in Rosemont, IL, right near the O’Hare Airport. This year the girls really enjoyed using the app on the phone and iPad where they could point at an image and have it appear in 3-D, and show the elves doing activities. Technology can be so much fun!


There were also two new friends, elves, that were there to interact with the kids. Very cute! Both Madeline and Olivia were measured for niceness/naughtiness. Olivia was pretty high, and Madeline, well, lets just say she just made the cut, LOL. I did like that it varied and was different measurements, making it a bit more realistic so mom and dad could put in a word or two of advice for getting that nice meter up. There were other activities where you could turn yourself into an elf and email/text the photo to yourself.

We really liked Santa this year. He was so jolly and attentive. The photo package is great. You get one printed photo, and a couple of downloadable photos from the online website. It was great having a couple of different poses with the big guy. Santa HQ is located right next to the food court. It’s a one stop spot for shopping, eating, and visiting Santa. Plus you can walk around the mall and see some great art being displayed. To make a reservation you can click here.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
