2017 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration Announcement

I am honored to have been invited back to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration!!! This is the first time it will occur as a Land and Sea Celebration. Disney Social Media Moms is an invitation only celebration for social media minded moms, dads and grandparents.

The celebration begins at the Walt Disney World Resort for 2-days. Then moves aboard the Disney Wonder for a 3-night cruise to the Bahamas and to Disney’s private island Castaway Cay.

Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island in the tropical waters of the Bahamas, reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. The 1,000-acre island offers one-of-a-kind areas and activities for every member of the family.

Families are also invited to join the fun during this event. My girls are 6 (almost 7) & 11 and they have never been to Walt Disney World or on a Cruise. To say they are excited is a BIG understatement. We live on the West Coast and visit Disneyland often. When the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World and go on a Disney Cruise presented itself we had to find a way to make it work. A Land and Sea Vacation has always been a dream vacation for us.

This will be my third time attending the Social Media Moms Celebration. My family joined me in 2013 at the 5th Disney Social Media Moms in Disneyland.

In 2015 I attended the event without my family when it was held at Walt Disney World. I had a blast but missed sharing the magic with my family.

My husband and I have been on a cruise once before, 16 years ago but it was not a Disney Cruise. I remember being in Port on the other cruise line and I watched as a Disney Cruise Ship pulled into Port, I wanted to pack my bags and jump ship to the Disney Dream.

Now I get the opportunity to sail aboard the Disney Wonder and I am so excited to learn all about the Disney Cruise experience. I have a feeling this will not be our last Disney Cruise.

Schedule of Events

While I don’t fully know everything we will be doing during the celebration I know it will be amazing. On the tentative schedule are Family dinners with VIP Experiences, a Social Media Family Challenge and fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Once on board the Disney Wonder will will enjoy the Golden Mickey’s,  Frozen, A Musical Spectacular, Pirate Night, and Disney’s Believe. Enhancements were just completed on the Disney Wonder including Tiana’s Place Restaurant, Marvel Super Hero Academy and more.

"The Golden Mickeys" is a Disney Cruise Line guest favorite and an award-style show celebrating the musical heritage of Disney animated films. This production showcases an extra sprinkle of glitz and glamour on the Disney Wonder with new musical numbers, enhanced technology and dazzling special effects.

Exclusively aboard the Disney Wonder in the Walt Disney Theatre, “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular” tells the classic story from the animated feature “Frozen” and is presented like never before with an innovative combination of traditional theatrical techniques, modern technology and classic Disney whimsy.

Family Time

The entire event takes place February 7-12, 2017, but we will be arriving a few days early to take advantage some extra magic at Walt Disney World before the celebration kicks off. 

On Sunday we will start at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to experience all of the Star Wars fun. Then on Monday we are headed to the Magic Kingdom Park, my girls are going to flip out when they see how big Cindy’s castle is. They are used to seeing our tiny little castle in Disneyland.

My youngest daughter will be celebrating her 7th birthday a few weeks before our trip and she has decided to not have a birthday party, but instead she wants to get pampered like a princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

I am already so excited about spending time with my family at the Walt Disney World Resort. I can only imagine how my family is going to be feel once we get there.
