2013 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Pictures {Day 1}

For the past three years Disney PR has put on a highly coveted event called Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.  The event offers influencers in the social media space, namely bloggers, an opportunity to learn and connect with other influencers while simultaneously vacationing with their family at the Walt Disney World Resort.  It’s quite the opportunity and invitations are dreamt about throughout the year leading up to the event. Attendees arrived at Walt Disney World yesterday and started feverishly tweeting with the hashtag #DisneySMMoms. Here are some of the highlights.

Be sure and give these ladies and gents a follow to stay abreast of all the #DisneySMMoms happeneings over the next couple days!

In advance of the conference, attendees were mailed an American Tourister suitcase and were told to #PackMoreFun. We think (@LoveDisneyRun) nailed it!
