As I yelled out into the Universe in January 2019, I have been dreaming of getting invited to the 2020 Disney Creators Celebration! One fateful afternoon, sitting in a coffee shop with my kids, I got the email!
I was invited by Disney on behalf of my blog to the Disney Creators Celebration!
What is Disney Creators Celebration?
Maybe you have no idea what I’m talking about and why I’m so excited. Well, years ago Disney used to host an event called Disney Social Media Moms Celebration where they invited top bloggers to come and learn about the media industry and what secret projects were coming to Disney Park, Disney Studios and beyond! Bloggers got a sponsored vacation, Disney got their projects advertised and everybody wins.
But over the years this celebration evolved to be more inclusive, focused and mutually beneficial. So this year the name has changed and the itinerary is a bit different from the early days. In the past this annual event has been called Disney Social Media Moms, Disney Creator Days and now Disney Creators Celebration!
To get a little bit more of a background on previous events like this and a deeper look at Disney Creators Celebration, come read this article I wrote last year.
This Years Disney Creators Celebration
This year Disney is hosting creators (bloggers and influencers) of all kinds to a Land + Sea adventure. Everyone will arrive February 18th and stay at Disney Worlds newest resort Disney’s Riviera Resort. We will spend a few days meeting with the best Disney partnered brands in the world, checking out exclusive Disney Parks experiences and a few surprises along the way.
At some point we will hop aboard the cruise ship The Disney Dream for a 3 night Bahamian Cruise! I will never stop repeating my theory that a Disney Cruise is the most relaxing way to “do Disney”. If you don’t believe me, hop over to this post: The Complete Guide to Disney Cruising.

How Do I get Invited to Disney Creators Celebration?
This is the million dollar question! My best advice is to excel in your media creation first. Learn the industry, maximum your channels and put out quality content for years. You don’t have to be a Disney Blogger or have a Disney Instagram to get invited to these. I have met plenty of creators at these events who are chefs, lifestyle bloggers, beauty bloggers or fashionista influencers.
Disney wants to partner with creators who are killing it, honest and want to be invited to Disney! So keep working hard, increase your reach and you may get some pixie dust in your inbox real soon!
When I Open the Disney Creators Celebration Email
As I said, I was sitting in a coffee shop with my kids. We were grabbing lunch between school, piano lessons and some errands. I opened my email and immediately started crying! The older woman sitting two tables from me came over and asked if I was “ok”. I told her they were happy tears and I just cry for everything! She laughed. I laughed. And then I called my husband in an excited panic! He immediately scheduled the time off and came over to meet me in the coffee shop so we could celebrate!
Here is my crazy announcement on Instagram to announce my invitation. Yes, It’s what it looks like and yes, I’m crazy.
