Disney Social Media Moms 2014: the finish line

Remember how excited I was about the New Balance running shoes? Well, I don’t think I was as excited about getting up at 5:00am for a runDisney fun run. That was, until I met up with the other runners who also signed up. But, it’s not every day you get to participate is something so awesome. Running through the empty parks early in the morning with your new blogging friends is such a great feeling.


After we checked-in for the run, a New Balance representative gave us tips on running and we participated in a “good form” clinic. I actually learned a few things that might actually help me on longer runs. We also had a presentation by runDisney where they announced the bling for the upcoming WDW and DL park races. As much as I would love one of those medals, I don’t think I can run a half marathon. Nevertheless, we finished our 2 mile run very early that morning.


Once we got started, our families were on their way to Cars Land where they’d meet us for breakfast provided by Alamo rental cars. I don’t think my family had been in the park for five minutes before the girls were riding Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree — and all by themselves! Little did we know, Cars Land was closed for us until 9:00am. That mean over two hours of riding Radiator Springs Racers over and over and over again. It was the perfect way to end an already perfect trip.


I honestly can’t thank everyone enough at Disney for inviting us to this amazing event. I don’t even think my words can fully express the joy and gratitude I have for being a part of this event. Thank you for sharing the Social Media Moms Celebration with my family.
