Disney Day 1 {Thursday}

Yesterday I wrote an overview of what we experienced at Disney. Today you get to read about our first day. I’m not trying to be too cliché, but the word that comes to mind is magical.

Thursday, after a super-easy check-in at Disney’s gorgeous Contemporary Hotel, I left the kiddos and Shane in the room to rest up before the evening’s festivities while I went to register.

That evening, conference attendees were treated to a welcome reception at Epcot’s World ShowPlace Events Pavilion. While we were there, Shane and the girls wondered around Epcot before the TRYit! Family Celebration.

We were able to interact with several members of Disney’s TRYit! campaign. They sure had a lot of energy!

Trying a variety of new foods and fun moves is part of living healthy. That’s the message of Disney’s TRYit! campaign. From inspirational messages on-air and online to a special TRYathlon event and road tour, kids and families are being encouraged to take action to be their best. Go to Disney.com/TRYit to find inspiration to be your best or to stay up to date on local events, contests, and other ways to participate in TRYit!

This party was definitely Shane’s favorite. He loved seeing the all-digital band playing their iPads.

Mickey even made an appearance, and the girls got to meet some of their favorite heroes and heroines 🙂

After the awesome party, we headed to the Worldview Plaza for the IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth firework and light show.

It was an incredibly awesome night. And what a blessing it was to watch all of our kiddos playing and having a good time together!

Magic of Healthy Living

Disney Magic of Healthy Living partners with parents to inspire kids to lead healthier lifestyles. Through engaging content, useful tools and unique experiences, this company-wide initiative helps parents by making nutritious eating and physical activity simple and fun.

In 2012, Disney introduced the Mickey Check, a tool that makes it easier to identify nutritious choices in stores, online, and while on vacation at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Look for the Mickey Check on kids’ menus at Disney’s domestic parks and resorts, on various Disney-licensed food products sold at retail locations across the country, and on qualifying recipes at Disney.com, Family.com and Spoonful.com.

Disclosure:  I attended the Disney Social Media Moms Conference and received discounted rates, accommodations, and tickets to various events and attractions. All opinions are mine, all mine.
