Asking the Moms 101

posted on June 15th, 2010 by Laura Spencer, Social Media Manager, Walt Disney World Resort

The Walt Disney World Moms Panel is made up of men and women just like you. They’ve fallen in love with Walt Disney World Resort and want to share their knowledge, passion and experience with everyone they meet! The panelists are there to answer your vacation planning questions and have years of their own family-tested advice to share.

Four of our panelists, Suzannah D., Joel K., Jonas L. and Amanda W. got together to give you their best tips for getting the most out of your Walt Disney World Moms Panel visit!

Amanda is a mom of two and actually uses the Walt Disney World Moms Panel as a resource for answering the questions submitted to her on the panel! She suggests using the search feature on the front page. She says, “Before you ask your question, try searching.”

Suzannah, a Florida resident suggests looking through the mom’s bios before asking a question. “Our moms are so diverse! Some of them travel with teenagers, others with preschoolers. A few know all about navigating the parks with a special needs family member. Some are Disney Vacation Club members. Find the mom that is most like you and ask them a question directly!”
Moms Panel 'Ask a Question'
Amanda says that she actually answers questions asked of her directly first, so you’ll usually get your answer more quickly than sending in a question to the main pool. And if you want more information after you ask a question, Joel suggests you just ask another question—all the panelists like to answer in depth!

It may be tempting to squeeze all your vacation questions into one big paragraph. Disney Dad, Jonas suggests breaking them up, “It doesn’t hurt to submit several questions. If you submit only one question at a time, we can answer you more clearly and fully.”

Joel says to do a little research on the basics before asking a question. Answers on pricing, resorts, attractions, etc are all on the main Walt Disney World vacation planning site ( Ask the panel those questions that will truly make your visit magical like, “how do I surprise my 6 and 7 year old with the news that we are going to Walt Disney World!”

Don’t forget to check your inbox. You will be automatically notified when your question has been answered. The Moms and Dads work very hard on answering the many guest questions they receive. They say to please be patient and they hope to get to everyone but don’t always. They suggest to keep checking back the site for updated information.

The panelists also suggest that guests watch the videos on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel site. The videos showcase some of what Walt Disney World Resort has to offer and many of the videos are hilarious!

Back when the Mom’s panel started I wanted to become a member to assist people. I love WDW with a passion. You can ask my family. I could not figure out how though to be a part of the panel. Is it possible to join the panel?

We will be looking for new panelists in the fall. Keep checking the site for the application dates and information. Good luck!

This is amazing that it’s getting such a low rating. I guess people don’t like help.

When is the Disneyland Resort Mom’s Panel going to start???

Suzannah, Joel, Jonas and Amanda W are some of the coolest and most knowledgeable Disney fans I know…and they’re technologically savvy, too. They’re also wonderfully passionate about what they do. They have been there, done that and want to share their wisdom and passion for Disney with you! Pay them a visit…you’re going to love my friends! :)

There doesn’t seem to be any way to provide feedback for the panel though – like when you sometimes give outdated or incorrect information.

Why isn’t there a Mom’s panel for Disneyland?
