What’s your #DisneySide? You know, that side that embraces fun and laughter, and comes out to play when you step inside of a Disney Park. Earlier this month Disney invited Social Media All-Stars to show their #DisneySIde, and the response was overwhelming. Social Media artists from YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Vine and Instagram used their creative style and specific medium to show the magic that happens to each one of us inside a Disney park at the World Premiere of #DisneySide.
The event launched in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, where more Instagram selfies are taken than anywhere else in the world. Crowds of fans showed their #DisneySide, wearing Disney character ears, joining the Social Media All-Stars and Disney characters for the “world’s largest selfie.”
After the selfie extravaganza, ABC’s Cameron Mathison hosted the Premiere at Fantasyland Theater. Each of the All-Stars was introduced and unveiled their #DisneySide, opening with a performance of “It’s a Small World” by YouTube singing sensation Tiffany Alvord. Following the Premiere was a meet and greet where the fans could meet their favorite Social Media All-Stars. Grumpy Cat of YouTube fame was the paws-down favorite; the line of Grumpy Cat fans waiting for an opportunity to meet the favorite feline was longer than many Disney attractions.
TravelingMom had boots on the ground to cover the #DisneySide event and scored interviews with several of the social media all-stars. Here’s a snapshot:
