Our Afternoon at #CarsLand in Disney’s California Adventure

Today was a big day for Disney – it literally “just got happier” with the opening of CarsLand and Buena Vista Street.

And we got a sneak peek!

We first visited Radiator Springs and Rte 66…

But, somebody got very cranky.

Radiator Springs Racers is a ride you won’t want to miss!

Look who’s happy now…

I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Kathleen, a Disney Imagineer… Stay tuned for a video of my ride with Kathleen.

I even filmed a fun webisode, complete with an appearance from Mater! You won’t want to miss it, so check back soon.

Of course my afternoon would not have been complete without a visit from Mickey…

And, becoming an honorary candy maker was quite the treat!

Ben and Noah were excited to see Donald, while I was hard at work… having fun!

Are you planning to visit CarsLand this summer?

I can’t wait to share all of the fabulous footage I got from this magical place. And I’d love to hear about what you think of CarsLand after you visit!

A Grand Welcome

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been away for a bit. At least I hope you’ve noticed. Well, last Thursday began a fabulously long weekend of learning, growing, and playing in none other than magical Disney World during the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.

Most of the weekend’s festivities took place at the breathtaking Grand Floridian, where we were welcomed on that first day as esteemed guests.

More to come as I share the highlights from my time away. Stay tuned!

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration

I am still recovering from a magical time in sunny freezing-cold Florida at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, aka #DisneySMMoms… Home with my kiddos has never been so sweet!

Being one of the small percentage of moms attending the conference sans family (not by choice, mind you… I wish we could have afforded for all eight of us to spend a week at Disney World together), I was able to enjoy some fun girl-time with some of my fellow solo mom friends – Tara, Sue, Audrey, and so many more.

Plenty can be said about this fabulous conference/celebration, and I will get to all of that, but for now I hope you’ll enjoy a glimpse into my play time.

I always regret not taking more pictures while with my friends at events like this… For more, check out the Disney Social Media Moms Flickr stream, a picture of two of my closest friends and me, and one of some lucky moms with Chris Brogan. Can you see Alyssa and Colin peeking from behind in that last one? Miss you already, girls!
