As a travel writer, I have had the privilege to preview and review many outstanding destinations. In 2011, our family spent almost an entire year in an RV - visiting museums, theme parks, non-profits, parks, libraries, and more. Even after all of that travel, Disney remains one of our top picks for family vacations.
As such, I couldn't be more thrilled to let you know that I have been selected as one of the attendees for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, an invitation-only conference for social media minded moms and dads. The professional conference will take place over Mother's Day weekend at the Walt Disney World Resort.
One of my favorite aspects of the DSMM is that it is created specifically as a "family-friendly conference." It's designed so that conference-goers can network, learn, and share their knowledge of social media WHILE simultaneously experiencing the magic of Disney with their families. As an entrepreneur, I am keenly aware of the benefits of attending events with other leaders in my field. At the same time, I don't like spending time away from my husband and our three young daughters. It's fabulous that Disney World combined the two. I'd love to see more conferences follow suit.
Be sure to follow along here at Metropolitan Mama for photos of the conference, tips and tricks of the trade for planning an affordable and memorable Disney vacation, and fun videos with some of your favorite bloggers. I'm also a contributor to Disneyed.com and Trekaroo so you can watch my coverage there as well.
I'd also like to thank Ergobaby for sponsoring my conference experience. Our family has been to a Disney park at least once per year ever since our first daughter was born - and we always bring our Ergo carrier along. It's a comfortable and convenient way to carry a baby or young toddler through the parks. Here are some photos from 2009, when we spent Halloween and Christmas in Anaheim.
This year, I'll be carrying our newest little one in the Ergo. Stay tuned for more fun babywearing pictures in the parks!
