By the time you read this, the Chief Mouse and I will be well on our way to Walt Disney World for the 2012 EarMarked Conference! What is the “EarMarked Conference” you ask? It’s a meeting of a select group of Authorized Disney Vacation Planners hosted by Disney each year and this year it includes a 3-night sailing aboard the brand new Disney Fantasy!
Today we check in at Coronado Springs Resort – the conference resort – and then head to Magic Kingdom to check out the new Storybook Circus changes (hello, Dumbo) and the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom role-playing game, and dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern to finish off our re-check of every Magic Kingdom area dining venue. I know, it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it…
Tomorrow we start the day with breakfast at ‘Ohana with Lilo & Stitch, Mickey and Pluto – the Chief Mouse’s favorite breakfast and my favorite character (Stitch). Later, we will tour the Disney Reservations Center where we’ll get to meet some of the folks we talk to every day, check out their training facilities and more. A couple of hours at Magic Kingdom before we’re back to the Polynesian Resort for dinner at Kona Cafe and then early to bed! (if we don’t go see Wishes)
Thursday is the opening day of the conference where we’ll find out all of the new and exciting things happening at Disney resorts all over the world and Friday we board the Disney Fantasy for a 3-night cruise stopping at Nassau & Castaway Cay.
