Tis the Night Before WDW…
…and all through the house — OK, I’ve already lost interest.
Anyway, this is Post #1 of our March 2012 EarMarked Conference Trip Report. It’s almost midnight on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 and when I hit “POST” I’m also going to hit the sack. We’re up at 6:00am tomorrow, for an 8:00am flight from Indianapolis to Orlando (which, oddly, have the same daytime temperatures right now).
For those of you just joining us, Kayla and I (Tom) have been honored with a complimentary trip to the 2012 Disney EarMarked Conference. It’s a gathering of all the Disney travel agents where we learn about new products, new marketing tactics, and gather information that will help us to better serve you – our clients.
This year is extra special, because after our 2 nights at Coronado Springs, they’re taking us on a 3-night cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy! We’ll set sail on Friday (March 23), with a stop at Castaway Cay on Saturday, a day at sea on Sunday, and disembarkation on Monday.
During our trip, we’ll be touring the Disney Reservation Center, where the magic literally starts. We’ll also get to tour some of the Resort Hotel construction sites. Once onboard, we’ll take a ship tour and also a stateroom tour.
We promise to take lots of photos (when they’ll let us) and also some video with our new camera. If I can figure out all this new fangled technology, we’ll have some clips up on our YouTube channel when we get home next Wednesday.
Meanwhile, check back here for (hopefully) nightly updates (except while we’re on the cruise, because we ain’t paying no buck a minute to browse the interwebz). I’ll also be tweeting while on land, or near American soil, so follow us there if you want.
Otherwise, we’ll catch everyone next week!
Tom (and Kayla)
