To me there’s nothing more magical than Disney. When pixie dust is sprinkled and you take flight into a Disney Blogging Conference you know it’s going to be a great day and Disney Social Media Moms on the Road – Philly 2014 was awesome.
Last month I attended a Disney Social Media Moms On the Road conference in Philly. To say I came home with some magical tips is an understatement. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by friendly Disney enthusiasts who were just as excited to be a part of the day as I was.
Once the doors opened we ran to our tables to see an adorable theme and some fun treats. Breakfast was served, and the ice breaker of swapping pins began. What’s even better is I got to meet Motherburg someone I had known for a while but never met despite all our trips on the L train.
Then it was down to business and I loved all they had to share and teach us.
Gary Jerry told us about some fun new things at the park, It’s a Small World is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary. There’s a new parade Festival of Fantasy and the latest attraction is Seven Dwarfs Mine. I also learned about RunDisney. Did you know you can run a half marathon at Disney? I’m no runner, but I’m thinking about checking this out.
It was Jen Fickley Baker who really had my attention as she gave some awesome tips about the social media aspect of blogging and Disney.
-Tell stories in a creative new innovative way
-Try a series as it can give you an identity
-If you have an idea; chase it. Maybe you’ll come up with something you like
-Encapsulate your blogs value
All great tips to think about when working.
Then Victoia Lim shared some Visual Guidelines for photo and video
-clean your lens
-Try Different angles
-Zoom with your feet (the resolution will be better)
-Hold your phone horizontally not vertically
-Be purposeful in shooting
-If your filming turn your phone on airplane mode (this way if someone calls it won’t interrupt)
It was such a great day and there were so many remarkable moments. I came away with a lot of information and some new friends.
