Saturday morning of Disney Social Media Moms there was a lovely breakfast at the conference center and then we were invited to attend Merida’s official coronation in the Magic Kingdom. The crowning took place at Cinderella’s Castle and a large crowd was there to welcome her warmly as she became the 11th Disney Princess.

After the coronation, we had time to spend with our families until a special advanced screening of Monster’s University. We spent the late morning and early afternoon at Downtown Disney.

Disney Social Media Moms Monsters UniversityMonsters University is coming out on June 21st, 2013 and we found it to be a cute, funny, and fun movie that we’d recommend seeing to Mike & Sully fans.

That evening we attended a wonderful dinner party in Fantastia Gardens Mini-Golf Course. I was worried about how it would go because it was pouring buckets when we arrived, but there were two covered dining areas offering plenty of space and decorated delightfully.

They did a great job teaching the kids new dance moves and held had a hula-hooping contest. We were surprised to see Goofy come out and perform remarkably well on the drums with the Jamminators!

Who knew Goofy could drum so well?

We also had the chance to play mini-golf as well. It was a fun course with lots of Disney themed obstacles and surprise water features.

The kids crashed early and the adults stayed up for a few hours chatting. It was wonderful family time filled with so much laughter our cheeks hurt at the end of the night.

Sunday morning was Mother’s Day and we were invited to attend a Garden Party themed breakfast for the whole family in the Contemporary Resort Conference Center. It was a lovely set up and they used the multimedia screens to display topiaries, flowers, and butterflies.

Disney Social Media Moms Mothers DayWe were pleasantly surprised to have Soleil Moon Frye as the breakfast keynote speaker. She chatted with Gary Buchanan about her days as Punky Brewster and how it prepared her to be a parent. She had many wonderful things to say about how parenting is wonderful insanity and all part of the magic.

We were excited when a group of impressive singers serenaded us with a medley of Disney songs with a beautiful Mother’s Day narrative thread running throughout. It brought a tear or two to the eye of many moms in the room and the kids were captivated.

There were thank you’s all around, good-byes made, and many hugs shared. We checked out of the Contemporary Resort wondering how it all could have gone so quickly.

It was an incredible event that gave us memories as a family that we’ll never forget and I can’t thank those that organized it enough for everything they did to make this an unforgettable and fun-filled few days that we’ll cherish forever.

As participants in the Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2013 we paid our conference fee, which includes hotel accommodations, park tickets, meals, and other gift items. I was not required, or asked, to write about the conference, events, or speakers. The honest opinions are my own and that of my family.

    Punky Power..we named our first dog Brandy! I love that this conferance was educational, productive and family friendly. It’s one thing to bring your family with you, it’s says another thing when they can actually sit and attend the conferance. So nice that they could see what mommy does and that she is surrounded by other professionals too
