On our second to last day in Florida we hit the kids with another major surprise. This one was courtesy of Mimi and Dano. They took all of us to Universal Studios Orlando to explore the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. This is a dream come true place for Eva. Both she and Andrew were blown away with the park and being in the Wizarding World was so much fun. Continue reading Questing in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

A Multi-Generational Magic Kingdom Day

Family Time at Walt Disney World

When I learned that we would be attending Disney Social Media Moms Celebration I looked into staying a few days after the conference so that we could spend more time in the parks. I also wanted the kids to be able to spend time with their grandparents in the parks. Eva has been to Walt Disney World three times so far and this would be her fourth trip. Andrew has never been and this would be his very first trip to the Magic Kingdom. I saved this park so that we could all share in his enjoyment and excitement of the park.

Our family had the unique opportunity to be invited to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at Walt Disney World and on board the Disney Dream. This is a conference that we paid to attend. During the Celebration we received experiences and gifts that were beyond the scope of a typical Disney vacation. I will mention those as I discuss them to properly disclose any of those extras. I also have affiliate links in this post.

We wanted to make the most of our trip to Florida and so we tacked on a few days after the cruise to spend time in the parks with our family. Today was the day when we returned from the cruise and the official end day of the conference. We started the morning making sure that we were ready to get off the ship. We needed to get off in one of the earliest groups and so we could not have breakfast at The Animator’s Palate. I would have loved to have done that but what can you do, if you are trying to catch a bus back to the hotel you do what you have to do.

Out of all the days during the Disney social Media Moms Celebration I was looking most forward to our trip to Castaway Cay. This is Disney’s private island that is full of fun and exciting things to do. You can rent boats, kayaks and more. You can even get those bikes that pedal on water that they used to rent at the beach back in Falmouth when I was a kid. We did a lot while on the island and probably would have spent much longer there if we hadn’t wanted to pop back to the ship to ride the Aquaduck, but we avoided over-exposure to the sun by making it an early day.

On our second day of cruising on the Disney Dream we had another beautiful day on the ocean. The ship docked in the port of Nassau but we did not get off the ship. I was in sessions for the morning learning about more things that were coming up from Disney as well as some social media tips and tricks from the social media team at Disney. We also got another session on Disney’s Corporate Citizenship and more of what they do behind the scenes. It was even more tear-filled than the previous session. There are just so many things that Disney does to help communities. Things that are not highly publicized. These things were a complete surprise to me.

We started off the morning having a family breakfast at Cabanas. Allison and the kids went to the pool for a while and then the kids went to the Oceaneers Club while she went to a massage at the spa. I went to the theater to attend the days’ sessions. Continue reading Pirates and the Universe on the Disney Dream at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration
