#FlowerandGarden2015

Walt Disney World hosts a variety of events each year that makes the magical theme park even more of a dream experience. From the Food & Wine Festival to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween, each event boasts additional excitement for anyone planning to attend at that time.

From March 4th through May 17th Walt Disney World’s Epcot will be hosting the 2015 International Flower & Garden Festival. Though I am far from ever being a social media specialist for Disney, below is my attempt at planning out the month of April for a few of Epcot’s social media sites (which means this list of posts is 100% hypothetical and should not be taken seriously).

Note: FB= Facebook post and Tw= Twitter post

Monthly Goal

This month our goal is to increase engagement with consumers as well as increase Twitter and Instagram likes by trending #flowerandgarden2015. Our objective is not only to drive guests to the International Flower & Garden Festival this year, but to share pictures that will increase engagement and drive new guests to attend in future years during this annual festival.
