Last week I was so excited, humbled, & honored, to have received an invitation to attend the 3rd Annual Social Media Moms Celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort! To be honest, the hubs and I have been talking for a few weeks now about making the trek back to the magical happy place again soon. William, our Kindergartener, spent his 1st, 2nd, and 3rd birthdays there and now, with this opportunity to attend this event, we will celebrate his 6th birthday there this April! The conference takes place April 26-29 but we are taking advantage of the passes we will receive through the conference in order to extend our stay! William's birthday is actually April 15th but I am sure if he's anything like me, he'll want to celebrate all month long!
This year the conference event is taking place at the gorgeously fun Yacht Club Resort, which is absolutely one of the most beautiful properties (IMHO) on Disney property. Back in 2009 during our last visit, we actually headed to the resort for their world-famous "kitchen sink" dessert.
I remember we fasted nearly ALL. DAY. LONG. in hopes that we'd be able to finish it. But, alas, it was not doable. Even WITH my hubs' insane ability to eat huge quantities of just about everything. Um, and yes, I was actually pregnant with Jacob during this trip so can you imagine what all that sugar did to my pregnant body? Maybe that's why he's the kinda kid that sneaks chocolate!
I'm having such a great time looking over our Disney 2009 photos and reminiscing. The kids have grown so much since then and I'm so excited to be able to take them back to experience it all again. Jacob was obviously in utero then and didn't really get to do much, so this should be SO magical for him especially!
Going off of our last visit there, I'd have to say my most favorite park to visit is Disney's Hollywood Studios. We were there just shortly after the new Toy Story ride opened up and I remember it was fun from beginning to end! There were fun things to look at and interact with while waiting in line to ride, and of course, the fun ride itself! I also think their Block Party Parade is the best and most fun out of all the parks! We also love all of the variety of characters at this park. These are just a few photos from Hollywood Studios:
I should also mention that I've hear tons of great praises about the actual conference itself. I'm looking forward to connecting with bloggers I've admired from afar for a while and reconnecting with those that I've come to know over the years both IRL and online!
