Disney Social Media Moms Conference Day 2 (Part 1)

Our Morning started at about 8am (mine was a little later)

Disney supplied us with a breakfast at Citricos's (I had my usual coffee!!) the food looked really good though!!

Then we went into the conference room.

I have been to conferences before, but wow this hall looked more like a wedding reception or a party, then a meeting room!!

Our first speaker of the day was Meg Crofton- President Of Disney World!!!

Meg gave us some great information about Disney and even some fun trivia (see bottom of this post!!)

The second speaker of the day was Matt Jacobson- Head of Marketing for Facebook.

I haven't seen The Social Network yet, but I was wondering which guy he was!!! lol

Matt let us know a lot about himself- He has 2 twin 15 yr olds, and he is not on Twitter!!!

He was very, very funny, and answered ALL of our questions (there were lots)

One heart whelming story he told us, was about a lady who used Facebook to turn $93 into $93,000 for Charity.

One fun fact about Facebook- One Billion Photos are Uploaded Onto Facebook Each Day!!!!

Our third speaker was Rene Syler from

Rene has had an interesting life. I don't want to say sad, because I don't think she sees it that way.

Rene used to work for the Morning Show on CBS until she was fired.

Shortly before she found out that she had breast cancer. She had to go through a mastectomy to prevent the spread of cancer. Unfortunately she lost her hair in the process.

Rene soon became very depressed. She couldn't even get out of bed.

One day, she realized she couldn't live like that anymore, and she changed her life.

She runs her site, and has written a book (same title!!)

Rene's talk was very inspirational. She brought tears to our eyes.

She was a pleasure to listen too!!!

Before we broke for lunch, we had a special visitor. The Fairy Godmother stopped by to award to one lucky blogger, a night in Cinderellas Castle!!! (I didn't win :( )

After lunch,(supplied by Disney at Citricos) we were introduced to Fran Capo, the worlds fastest talker (Guinness Book of World Records!!)

She was very funny, and boy does she talk fast!!!

(To be continued.........)
