Now Disney has announced plans to celebrate the phenomenom of social media. National Social Media day is held annually on June 30th. And while Disney did not have any official observance of that day this year, they did announce big plans to celebrate Social Media Day in 2016.

From June 1st through July 31st of 2016, Disney will host a number of special events celebrating the different forms of this unique medium.
