My First Disney Social Media Moms Celebration!

Happiest Blogger Meeting On Earth!

I'm currently serving as a 2017 Disney Parks Mom Panelist, a contract position with Magical benefits

Like many moms in Southern California, I have a blog and I cover Disney stuff on my blog. 

But I had never been invited to the annual Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. 

I did, however, get selected to become a Disney Parks Mom Panelist, which was way beyond any Disney honor a Disney-loving mom could ever receive. In my designation as a mom panelist, I've had amazing opportunities to visit the Disneyland Resort for different events. Since I answer plenty of guest questions seeking Disneyland vacation advice, the more visits to the Happiest Place on Earth, the better for me since there's always something new at the resort.

Nonetheless, receiving an invite to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebrations was just so cool!

It was amazing because I was there as a blogger/online media editor (see www.MommyInLosAngeles.com) but I was also there as a Disney Parks Mom Panelist which suddenly reminded me how soon this experience is coming to an end (panelists serve for one year)! 

The Disney Social Media Moms Celebration included helpful workshops and inspiring speakers. It also gave us the opportunity to meet other influencers and explore the Parks.

The idea is that Disney recognizes the importance of spreading the love. If bloggers and social media influencers cover fun and unique Disney stories, our readers and followers will learn about Magical happenings!

Disneyland with no kids and a bunch of mommies with social media obligations was incredible and I plan on sharing awesome news and updates regarding the Disneyland Resort on a regular basis.

For now, I want to thank the organizers of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration "on the road" for coordinating such a memorable day (Thank you Jodi, Courtnee and Lisa). I'd also like to share some photos of this very happy day!

 City Hall at Disneyland is still your one-stop shop for birthday & "first-time visit" buttons, a list of horse names at the King Arthur Carrousel, times for Character Meet & Greets, Disability Access Service registration, among many other things!

 From now until the Holiday season, guests can indulge in this moist, creamy and delicious classic Strawberry Shotcake dessert at the Plaza Inn, inside the Disneyland Theme Park.

 I had the opportunity to meet Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers, directors of Olaf's Frozen Adventures, an upcoming featurette which will be in theaters on November 22, 2017. They shared many fun details about what it was like to work on this film, including hints about hidden Mickeys within the film!

 Best of all, I had an opportunity to hang out with other amazing mommy bloggers including Paulina and Bricia Lopez (Super Mamas) and Jacqui Saldana (Baby Boy Bakery) pictured above.

On a final note, many moms have asked me how they can receive an invitation to the next Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. To be honest, the only thing I can offer is-- continue being genuine and honest in your coverage of Disneyland and Disney-related products and events. Personally, I'm still not sure why I received the invitation. It could have been my involvement with the Disney Parks Moms Panel, it could have been the "Disney Love" section on this blog or simply because someone checked out my Instagram and Twitter Feed and liked what they saw.
In the end, moms who decide to delve into the world of blogging don't really know if their venture will be successful but we do it because we simply love to share our experiences and have a creative outlet. Everything that happens after that is complimentary.
I would encourage you to keep being you and pixie dust will follow...
Thanks for reading!

Xo,
