Magic Kingdom: A Month of Social Media Magic

Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom: A place that is all about magic and imagination….Let’s “imagine”, for the sake of this assignment, that I was the Social Media Manager for Disney’s Magic Kingdom. My goals, as Social Media Manager, would be to increase traffic to the Magic Kingdom portion of Disney World’s website by offering tips, event details, promotions, and interesting Magic Kingdom facts. My goal, specifically for the month of August, is to encourage consumers to: book a last-minute trip before school starts back and/or begin their plans for a fall or Christmas break trip.

Note: The following posts are hypothetical, and for the purpose of this academic assignment only:
