I am off to another Brandcation. Some of you will remember my posts from my last Brandcation to Bloggers on Bourbon in New Orleans. I had such a great time on that trip, getting to mingle with PR, being introduced to new products and having fun with a great group of blogging ladies, that I jumped at the chance to buy my ticket to this Global Getaway in Kissimmee.
Hosted by MomDot and Brandfluential, Kim at What’s That Smell? and Nicole from Good Golly Miss Blondie also helped plan and coordinate all of the events and sponsorships! This Brandcation is much wilder than the last in respect to the harm that may comes to my appendages, but hopefully I will make it out in one piece. If I never return to the blog though, you know what happened to me. Here is what is in store for me beginning tomorrow evening.
Arrive at Global Resort Homes and check out our amazing digs! All accommodations for this trip were provided by Global Resort Homes and a special thank-you goes out to Tara Salinas who made it all possible! These are some of the most beautiful resort homes I have seen in a long time and come complete with everything you would need from a big gathering of mom bloggers to a family vacation. They even have a Wii’s! Here is the house I will be in.
Friday Morning and Afternoon:
Okay, this is the part where I may die! No, seriously, I will more than likely fall to my death and if that doesn’t finish me off, the panthers and other wildlife waiting will probably do me in for good. Wish me luck, because we are headed to Florida EcoSafaris to do a 2 1/2 hour Zip Line Tour. With heights up to 55 feet in the air 7 zip lines, 2 sky bridges (that doesn’t sound good) and speeds up to 25 mph while dangling from a skinny line, I think I will just die now and save myself the trouble. If I happen to live, I am sure it will be the experience of a lifetime. Florida EcoSafaries will also be provided us with a delicious lunch while we are there as well.
When we go back to the homes to change and rest before dinner. Eversave will be putting on a reception for us and sharing about their website and monetization options for bloggers.
Dinner on Friday is being provided by Sleuths Mystery Dinner. This looks like a total blast. A mystery show with a comical twist and delicious dinner all rolled into one. What could be better? It beats watching little boys chew with their mouths open and toss peas at each other across the table any day!
Saturday we wake up bright and early to head out on a airboat ride through the swamp, compliments of Boggy Creek Airboat Rides! This should be an amazing experience as well and speeds can get up to 45 mph. With my luck, I will be the one that falls in and becomes bait for the gator show!
After the airboat tour, we head on over to Gatorland for some one of a kind experiences and I am told some surprises as well. I am always a little leery when I hear the words surprise and gator in the same sentence, but what the heck. They are also providing lunch for us on Saturday, so I love them even more.
Dinner on Saturday night will be from Arabian Nights. Every time I go to Disney World with the boys, I think about going to this place for dinner one night. I am so happy to be given the chance to try it out. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the entertainment there.
On Sunday, I will actually be heading home, but a bunch of the ladies will be going to Disney World for the day. Disney was night enough to provide them with free tickets for the day and that is awesome. I am not going for two main reasons. Number one, I do not want to tease myself with half a day of Disney and two, I just don’t think I could ever do Disney World without my boys. At least not while they are still little.
So there you have it. My weekend will be full of death defying tricks and an unlimited amount of fun. I am so excited to have the opportunity to market with brands in a fun and exciting way and to be able to network with some of the greatest ladies I know. Wish me Luck!
