When we arrived at World Showplace, I was in awe! I couldn't believe we were fortunate enough to be involved with such an amazing event. There were lots of people already seated & we followed the signs to the media section. A woman holding the Disney Social Media Moms sign said "follow me", so Lynne & I followed her over to the other side of the room where we were seated along with Kristen right in the very front row!!

The entire stage was surrounded with white balloons & a colored Mickey balloon every so often:

The Jammitors came out & did a performance for us:

Tom Staggs, Chairman of Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts, came out & spoke to us & also had a little chat with special guest, Kermit the Frog!

Then Ty Pennington from ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition came out & spoke to us about volunteering:

It was awesome because he took out his megaphone & asked us all to help him say "move those balloons" & when we did, they all raised up to the ceiling

& revealed an unbelievable structure made up of more than 115,000 cans! I wasn't able to get a fabulous shot of the structure with my camera because of everything going on in front of us, but if you check out the Disney Parks Blog, you can watch the video of it being assembled!

It was such a treat to be present for the unveiling of this structure! I found the props around the park to be a big treat as well, Disney always does things BIG!


  1. Oh my gosh! I had no idea you were in the front row! Lucky!!!!

  2. Aww, I remember that day! It was so much fun, and yummo! Ty Pennington! Great pictures, by the way! Love ya!

  3. How cool is that? We're famous now. Can I have your autograph?

    It was so nice to meet you both. I only wish we got to spend even more time together. Great post, Jackie!
