I'm Going to KeyCon!

Well, it's finally official!  I'm registered for KeyCon 2014!!!  Woo-hoo!!!

And... you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.  That's ok, because I'm going to fill you in!  Last fall, I became a travel agent with Key to the World Travel.  KeyCon is our annual travel agent conference!  This year, it's taking place at Walt Disney World!

I'm incredibly excited!  As you'll see from the KeyCon video below, we're going to have a lot of fun this October!  I'm going to get 3 fun filled days of training, learning, meeting my fellow agents, team building, and Disney fun!!!

I'm most excited about all of the training we're going to get!  For most of us, this is our first time being a travel agent.  I'm not afraid to admit that I have a ton of things I'd like to learn more about.  I'm really looking forward to the marketing and social media sessions. 

The other thing I'm really excited about is to finally meet my fellow agents.  I've "met" many of them online, but it'll be nice to finally meet each other in person!  I'm sure it will make collaborating and sharing ideas a lot more personable.  I'm also excited for team building and Disney fun in the parks together!  What better a way to meet each other than at the place we all love?  A few of us have already made plans to check out the Food and Wine Festival.  Those brave enough might also do a group photo on Tower of Terror!

I'm also really excited about the VIP Show.  I'm not-so-secretly hoping for Fantasmic since we did the VIP IllumiNations Dessert Party during our Disney Wedding.  But I know I'm going to have a ton of fun no matter what we see!

The most daunting part of this is going to Disney World alone for the first time.  It seems a little depressing to me since going to Disney is such a family oriented vacation for me. However, I keep reminding myself I'm not really going to be alone.  I'm going to be with my Key to the World family!  I'm going to make new friends.  I can do whatever I want in my free time.  I can ride my favorite rides over and over and over if I wish.  And finally, no one will be there to judge me if I decide a Mickey ice cream bar, Dole Whip, candy apple and ice cream is an acceptable dinner.

Besides, I'm going to Walt Disney World again a few months later in January 2015 for the WDW Marathon Weekend.  I'll still get to visit Disney World with my family for our races. (Speaking of running, maybe I should re-think that whole dinner arrangement...)

Plus, I can't deny my excitement to see the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride!  I'll probably also end up attending one of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties if my trip falls during one.  I absolutely love the "Boo To You Parade" and "HalloWishes" fireworks!

Overall, this KeyCon trip is going to be amazing and I really can't wait until October.  Let the official Walt Disney World countdown begin: KeyCon 2014, here I come!!!  °o°
