Live the magic in August!
July 12, 2014

Before I begin, I would like to say that this entire blog is based on a class assignment and has no affiliation with Disney. My goal is to communicate ideas which I believe could enhance Disney’s Facebook and Twitter during the month of August for the Magic Kingdom.


The goal for August 2014 is to drive user engagement by measuring “likes,” “favorites,” “shares,” and “retweets,” as well as increase our followers on both Facebook and Twitter by 0.3306% (about 4,000 people). We would also like to drive ticket sales during Extra Magic Hours where the park will remain open longer for the standard price of admission.
