Mommy and Me Monday – Disney Summer Social

There are few moments in your life that are truly magical. To me, Disney defines the term magic. I have so many happy memories from childhood through adulthood that revolve around Disney and trips to Walt Disney World.

This past weekend I had an opportunity to experience a little bit of Disney magic with my family right here in Atlanta. The Disney Summer Social was held at the W hotel and a hosted by the lovely, dynamic duo of Leanne Jakubowski and Jennifer Wilkes.

Upon arrival, we found ourselves amid a sea of pirate, princess and traditional hats of Mickey ears. There were tables offering coloring, crafts, face painting, balloon animals and assortment of toys to inspire creative play.

I tell you what.
Disney throws a fun family party.
They had the wide variety of age groups covered so all the children could easily participate in the activities. Baby loved trying to hula hoop, and Jed could barely be torn away from the assortment of Cars2 toys and colorful bowling sets to eat his lunch.

The kid friendly lunch of sliders, chicken skewers, pizza triangles and fruit kabobs was a huge hit, but the dessert really knocked our socks off. Assorted mini cupcakes and plentiful Mickey themed treats were awesome! Everyone enjoyed nibbling on the variety of ears available.

We spent a wonderful day playing and connecting with other local bloggers and their families. Thank you so much Leanne, Jill and Disney for hosting such a memorable event.

To see more pictures of the festivities, please feel free to visit my blog’s fan page here. There is even a picture of me sporting the most coveted set of magical ears this side of Orlando.

Disclosure – I attended the Disney Summer Social event with my family. I also received some fun Disney surprised when leaving. I received no other compensation, nor was I asked to blog about the event. I chose to do so on my own out of my personal love and appreciation for Disney. All opinions expressed are my very own.

    We had a great time too. Hope to be at another event with you in the future so we can meet. I stood in line for face painting for a large part of the time. It was worth it since my girls were overjoyed with their paintings.

      We definitely need to chat some next time. Between the line and quick pick up of chicken at your place, we really haven’t had any time. 🙂
