For this week’s post, I will discuss my recommendations for Disney’s Magic Kingdom Facebook and Twitter accounts, specifically for the month of August 2014. The recommended posts on this blog are hypothetical and for academic purposes only.
While the main attractions of Disney’s Magic Kingdom are the rides, the park has many other amenities. The main goal for the month of August (last month of the summer) is to increase traffic at Disney’s Magic Kingdom by creating awareness about other park features like parades, character meet & greet, special events, photo passes, tours, and dining. This will be achieved through posts during that period on Twitter and Facebook, which will include valuable information, photos and links to the Magic Kingdom website. This will also direct traffic to the website and to the Disney blog, as well as increase sales of tours and restaurants at the park.
