Jennifer and I landed today in Orlando for the Disney Social Media Mom’s Conference. The flight was great (we even got here 15 minutes early thanks to a hefty tailwind!) and Jennifer can finally say that she has ridden in an airplane! After making our way to the Polynesian, we headed straight for the Magic Kingdom in search of lunch. We ate a quick counter service meal, grabbed a map and navigated Main Street. It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain and Peter Pan were so much fun! Did I mention that we were given Media Fast Passes that allows us to instantly ride any Fast Pass ride at Disney? Sweet!
For dinner, we headed to ESPN’s Wide World of Sports for a “What’s New, What’s Next” presentation. We listened to all the amazing new things Disney has planned for the future. This Summer, Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade will be back to light up the night along with “Summer Nightastic” fireworks. And the announcement that really got my attention is the launch of a new addition to the Disney Cruise line, the Disney Dream. This ship will feature a waterslide on board called the Aquaduck which features a transparent tube which will give guests an incredible view of the Ocean. This thing is un-freakin-believable. Hey Disney, if you need someone to test out that new ship…I am your girl!
After the presentation, we were treated to a tailgating party complete with hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, cotton candy and more! This tailgating party turned into a dance party!
Jennifer and I are now back in our room and EXHAUSTED, but looking forward to Day 2!
