About me

Let’s start at the beginning: My name is Scott Gustin.

I’m the Digital and Social Media Executive Producer at MyFOX8.com, the website for the Fox affiliate in High Point, North Carolina. And I love Disney. Luckily, I’m married to a fellow Disney geek that shares my love for Walt Disney World.

I have always had an interest in Disney. As a kid, most of my favorite movies were Disney movies. However, it wasn’t until high school until I found a real passion for Disney and Disney World. Without boring you with the details, after a visit to Walt Disney World in 2000, I was hooked. Ever since, I have found myself constantly checking Disney websites for the latest news from Disney World.

I spend most of my time online reading tech news, Disney World news and on Twitter (@ScottGustin).

Now, the real question: What the heck is this blog going to be about? Disney has increased its social “awareness” over the past few years with the Disney Parks Blog, various Facebook and Twitter accounts and multiple social efforts within the parks. However, Disney is also often critiqued for their social media strategies and efforts. The primary topics on this blog will include existing social media projects, upcoming projects and new strategies coming from Disney Parks.

Just so I’m clear: This blog will never be a Disney bash-session – there are plenty of those around the internet (see most forums). I want to take a look at the good the bad, what works and what doesn’t, the successful and the unsuccessful.  The goal of the blog is to discuss ways Disney can use new technology and social media to provide a better overall experience for its customers and fans.

  1. Hi Scott, my name is shelley and I just happen to stumble on to your site while looking at plancast. I like you have self diagnosed my condition and I am ok with it and if others dont understand they need to have their inner child checked.

    My 1st visit to WDW was in 2005, my hubby & I taking our girls for the very 1st time and seeing their faces opened a place in my heart that got shut away long time ago and that is the child in me. I like you surfed the net for anything related to Disney that I could not concern myself with the seriousness of life, it was just the pull and magic of disney that keeps me hooked. Since then we have become DVC’s members, I go at least 3 times a yr and I just recently decided to become a travel agent.

    Most of all I really love meeting others that share and understand what Walt Disney created and why he created it.
