So excited to share my experience at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2015!
Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2015

I was so happy to be invited to this magical conference over Mother’s Day weekend. Being a food blogger, I hadn’t heard much about it other than it’s a massive honor to be invited and there are magical surprises around every corner. Needless to say I couldn’t even wait for the trip to come!

The boys and I left Phoenix bright and early Thursday May 8th and arrived in Orlando about 4pm. We met some of our best friends from CA at the Magical Express. We were so anxious to arrive at our hotel.

We pulled up to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. It was like a breath of fresh air with the Disney magic already starting. We had to drop off our bags and head to our opening dinner.

We were a little late arriving to the dinner party since because of our late flight, but we walked through Epcot’s World Showcase doors and couldn’t even believe it. There were neon lights, buffet tables around the entire building, Disney Characters to take photos with, a DJ playing fun music, lemonade slushy machines and so much more. It was like overload to all of our senses. Took a few minutes to take it all in, seriously. We started with the food. There was mac and cheese, chicken fingers and mashed potatoes served in cones, cheeseburger egg rolls…those were just a few fun options.

Before the sun went down we ran over to Epcot’s France to grab a Strawberry Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich. Mmmm 🙂

After dinner there was a dessert party and private viewing area of the Illuminations Show. We had 3-D glasses that made every light look like Mickey Mouse ears. The boys thought it was the coolest thing ever. We had a long day of travel, so we headed back to our room and crashed.

Saturday morning….I’m talking 6:30am we headed to Hollywood Studios to make a video riding The Tower of Terror! It was such a blast.

Right after we got done with this taping, we got to see a sneak peek of Pixar’s Inside Out. Seriously adorable. Wait until you see the “short” right before the movie. It’s called Lava. I literally loved it. Even teared up like a total baby, lol! So So cute!

We spent the rest of the afternoon at Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. What a treat!
