Disney's Grand Floridian ~ Disney Social Media Moms

In just two short weeks my family and I will be traveling to Walt Disney World, AGAIN!  It is no secret that we love going to Disney World, but this time I have an actual purpose behind the trip.  I am attending Disney's Social Media Moms Celebration.  I attended last year when I had first started my journey into social media.  It is very fun to be returning this year with more experience and knowledge under my belt. (translation-this year I will understand more of what Chris Brogan is saying!)

We are staying in one of my favorite resorts in Disney World, the Grand Floridian.  We have been lucky enough to stay there a couple of times and now I am dreaming about our return.

Beds at the Grand Floridian
The comfortable beds

Day Bed at the Grand Floridian
The beautiful couch that turns into a comfy day bed

Desk and TV Hutch at the Grand Floridian
The desk and TV hutch.  The desk has a little table that rolls out, and the hutch has drawers and a small refrigerator.

Mickey Lamp at the Grand Floridian
The Mickey Mouse lamp that lives on the desk.

Double Sinks at the Grand Floridian
The convenient double sinks in the bathroom (yes I take pictures of bathrooms!)

Turndown at the Grand Floridian
Turndown service in the evenings.  And yes, that is almost a full box of chocolates.  My kids became good friends with the Mousekeeper and she was very generous on our last night!

VIew out to Seven Seas Lagoon at Grand Floridian

Water Pageant from Grand Floridian
Watching the Electrical Water Pageant every night!

Beach Pool at the Grand Floridian
I hope it will be warm enough to swim in the Beach Pool!

The view over to the Wedding Pavilion where our celebration will start!

I could probably post Disney pictures all day and all night because I am so excited about this trip.  I hope to have a lot of pictures to post and stories to tell from the conference so stay tuned!

I have paid a greatly reduced rate to attend the upcoming Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, however that will not influence my opinion or determine what I choose to post.

Your pictures are SO lovely! I love your insights and seeing The Grand Floridian through your eyes makes me over the moon excited to be there in just a few short weeks. I've never been so now I will be just that more familiar. Thank you!!!

That hotel is one of my husband's favorite places. I can't wait to take my boys there when they are older. Your pictures are beautiful - have fun on the trip!

I am so jealous! I love all things Disney! I've never stayed at the GF before so I enjoyed seeing your pics of the resort and rooms! I know y'all will have a fabulous time at the conference!
