What’s the Walt Disney World Moms Panel you ask? It’s a forum where Moms (and dads) answer your online questions and offer advice about vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort. The site is a forum led by real, park-savvy parents who assist with the vacation planning process based on their own experiences.
And it’s not easy getting onto the panel. Literally thousands of applications submitted earlier this month are currently being reviewed to find 10 new panelists who will join the elite roster of “moms” who currently sit on The Walt Disney World Moms Panel.
“We realize moms and dads are online now more than ever, engaging in social media to research tips, connect with others and identify what’s best for their family. The Moms Panel provides an online space where they can interact and receive feedback from parents just like them,” said Meg Crofton, president of Walt Disney World Resort. “And the response has been phenomenal – more than 25,000 questions have been answered to date. With each new question asked, we look forward to 2010 as our moms continue to help create and share the magic of Disney with others.”
Launched in January 2008, the Web site became an instant success. Due to the popularity, in its second year we added four more positions. The 2010 panelists will be part of the biggest panel to date as they join veteran panelists and begin answering vacation-planning questions in January.
Panelists are independent contractors and are not employed by Disney Parks. Panelists are free to give guests their advice and honest opinions based on their own experiences. Be sure to check the Disney Parks Blog for updates on the new search and other unique stories from our now famous panelists.
