The Best of #DisneySMMC Day 1 in Pictures {Disney Social Media Moms Celebration}

Disney's Yacht Club Resort at Walt Disney World

Once a year Disney pulls in a gaggle of “mostly” mom bloggers to the Disney theme parks for a few days of promotion, learning and fun and a whole lotta social media updates are sent out over the three day event. Here’s a look at my favorites on Instagram from Day One.

Yesterday hundreds of moms packed up and hit the road with their families headed to the most magical place on earth. For some it was like returning home. For others…their very first trip.
