DisneySMMoms Celebration 2011: Private Party Along the Shores of The Grand Floridian

DisneySMMoms Celebration 2011: Private Party
Along the Shores of The Grand Floridian

 

Have you ever been riding the monorail and noticed that sandy beach area next to the Wedding Pavilion just before the Grand Floridian stop? Well, that is where our dinner party took place on the first night of Disney Social Media Moms. If I tell you it was amazing, that wouldn’t even begin to describe it!

Disney had a sand sculptor make a sculpture of the DisneySMMoms logo! How cool is that?

The food was amazing! They had these great little salads served in cones and they had watermelon in them! YUM-O!

Since this event was not only for the conference attendees, but the families as well, of course there was lots for the kids to do! There was a carnival set up on the other end of the beach with games and characters roaming around in their carnival attire. My kids both won a bucket load of prizes including a fabulous sandcastle-shaped bucket with a matching shovel! They had so much fun!

There was also live music!

My daughter was very chatty with the musicians and HAD to have her picture taken with them. She really enjoyed listening to them!

The people of Main Street were there too, having a great time chatting with everyone.

We had plenty of casual time to walk around and connect with some of the bloggers we’d interacted with prior to the celebration. I was really excited to meet Ashley, Lori, Amanda, and many more of my tweeps! It was so much fun to not be rushed and our kids were having the time of their lives with the characters and games. What a wonderful experience!

We could have gone to a park after that evening’s festivities but we decided to watch the fireworks from the shore and just soak in everything the Grand Floridian had to offer us that evening. It was amazing.

Disclosure: I paid to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. In exchange for my registration fee, I received deeply discounted rates on hotel, park tickets, events, meals, and swag. I am not required nor was I asked to write about the events by Disney or any other party affiliated with the event. Thoughts are 100% my own.

  1. Thanks for sharing – not that I wasn’t already coveting an invite to next year’s Social Media Moms convention LOL! That sand sculpture is amazing :)

  2. I love that you added a picture of the salad cones. I thought that those were the coolest presentation of a salad I could imagine! I ate two, salad cones rock.

  4. I so wanted to be there this year, but I chose the Dream Christening Cruise instead. Hopefully I’ll make it to next year’s SMM event!

      I so wanted to be there this year, but I chose MY SON’S STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS instead. (Boy, the Dream Christening Cruise was quite a consolation prize for you!!) Hopefully I’ll make it to next year’s SMM event! WITH ANY LUCK, I’LL SEE YOU ALL THERE!
