This year’s Direct Selling Association Annual Meeting ended on a magical note at one of Orlando’s biggest attractions, Walt Disney World’s Epcot Theme Park.
After a welcome from one of the park’s resident superheroes, the evening kicked off with dinner and live music—Disney classics, of course. Dinner featured a visit from some very special characters, Frozen Princesses Anna and Elsa; Mickey and Minnie Mouse; and Mr. Incredible and Frozone of The Incredibles.
Guests had the opportunity to meet the Disney stars and take photos, an experience that in the case of Anna and Elsa would normally involve a three- to five-hour wait, according to a recent Fox News report.
From dinner, guests headed to an exclusive terrace at the park’s World Showcase, where visitors can explore the culture and cuisine of 11 countries. There they enjoyed a sampling of desserts and Epcot’s award-winning fireworks show, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.
A trip to Disney World isn’t complete without a ride, and for the DSA’s guests that ride was Soarin’. The Epcot favorite whisks riders 40 feet in the air for a “hang-gliding” flight over California. Projected onto a 180-degree IMAX dome, the adventure includes breathtaking scenes from Napa Valley, Yosemite’s Half Dome and the Golden Gate Bridge.
If the happy faces filing out of the park were any indication, Disney and direct selling are a good match.
