If there is one thing about mom blogging it's this: It's always chock full of surprises! Mom bloggers are reviewing free products at stellar rates, helping companies shape products, earning extra money with banner advertising, and every once in a while some mom bloggers are invited on branded trips courtesy of companies that believe in reaching those of us who talk to other moms on a daily basis and that's precisely what a group of us did this past weekend. We were invited to a Disney World Mixer in Orlando, Florida where we learned about everything Disney World has to offer to families who are looking to take an unforgettable vacation.
This trip, I must say, was a first-class excursion to one of the best family destinations in the country. We were treated to wonderful meals in fabulous restaurants, given a backstage glimpse at one the most anticipated new attractions at Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Mania!, which officially opens just in time for summer, and given a whirlwind tour of some of the most attractive options the parks have to offer such as thrill rides, water rides, fine dining and casual eating options, shows, parades, and more. Without a doubt, there is something for everyone at Disney World. We saw first-hand how seriously all of the Disney employees take their job from those who work in the corporate offices to those who play Disney characters, all the way down to those who keep the parks immaculately clean and safe for visitors.
Disney World also offers a wide range of topnotch accommodations such as the Disney Beach Club Resort where we stayed. And there are a whole host of other resorts you can choose from depending on how much you want to pay, how close you'd like to be to the parks, and the type of accommodations you're looking for, from spacious villas to all-inclusive resorts.
We all had a fabulous time, met moms whose blogs we've been reading for years, and are quite frankly, ready for a reunion -- already!
This Disney World Mixer event is a notable example of the opportunities you have as a mom blogger. If you take your writing and your audience seriously, you may also find yourself on a wonderful free trip with other mom bloggers who you'll remember your entire lifetime.
