Even though I don’t fit the standard demographic (I’m a married, childless, twenty-something male), I still think I might apply. Seems like a cool and rewarding experience!

 

Laura Spencer on September 2nd, 2010 at 11:06 am

So many excited and passionate folks! I hope you all apply and it’s fun just to meet up on the blogosphere with other Disney Parks fanatics.

Good luck to y’all!

It sounds awesome and I definately fit the profile:) But, what about a Disneyland Moms’ Panel?

Pamela from MD on September 1st, 2010 at 1:11 pm

That would be GREAT for me. I am 26 years old and I have 2 girls. we have been to disney the past 5 years in a row. I always book everything myself i do not go through a travel agent because I always find it to be cheaper. I knwo so much about disney and some of the best places to eat and I have had a few people also ask em to book their trips for them and they loved it…Im so excited and I cant wait for more details.

Patricia from NY on September 1st, 2010 at 1:12 pm

Cool! I will definitely be back on the 13th. I LOVE Disney and always plan everyone’s itinerary for them.

Lisa on September 1st, 2010 at 1:12 pm

I would LOVE to be a DISNEY Mama I feel as if I already am you can ask family and friends! Home/Family and Disney are my thing any day of the week! Even if you don’t pick me I will ALWAYS be a Disney Mama because it is my other home!

Carrie from MD on September 1st, 2010 at 1:15 pm

I’m not a Mom, but I’m definitely the Disney planner in my family. I planned both of our last trips from beginning to end, including ADRs and what we were doing when. So can I play? Please?!

Julie from FL on September 1st, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I would love to join the Disney Mom’s Panel. Our Family loves Disney.

Fabiola from IL on September 1st, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I would absolutely be delighted to be part of Moms Panel :), and I have commented before you guys need some moms who speak spanish as well. I think the Moms Panel is a great resource and I have use it several times and LOVE it, but I know moms who wish this would be available in their language and could benefit from it. Think about it, people from ALL over the world plan their vacation at WDW :) just a hint :)

Sarah from ON on September 1st, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Of course the application process is when I am in Disney World! I love everything Disney and everything Disney stands for! I love helping people plan their dream Disney vacation. I read the books and know lots of silly information! My license plates do not say DISNYMUM for nothing. :)

Melanie from OH on September 1st, 2010 at 1:19 pm

I wasn’t selected last year – I’ve been to WDW 7 times in the past 5 years and I LOVE it! I’m the one all of my friends, co-workers & family go to (and send their friends to) for tips on visiting WDW!

11

Sheryl on September 1st, 2010 at 1:22 pm

This is my calling. I have been to Disneyland over 100 times and Disneyworld 5 times. I am planning vacations for 3 of my coworkers and planning my 6th Disneyworld vacation for January 2011. I love everything Disney.

12

Kandice on September 1st, 2010 at 1:22 pm

I would LOVE to be a part of this! I have had many friends & family ask for help planning & I LOVE TO RESEARCH!

Peter on September 1st, 2010 at 1:26 pm

I would love to be a Disney Mama! My husband and I have been going to Disney for the past 10 years. We don’t have our own children so we bring our niece for 7 of those years. We have seen her grow up on the Disney property and have learned a thing or two about best dining place, rides, planning the days at the parks, services, accomodations, fitting in naps and even how to get medical care when she got sick. The best part about experiencing our Disney adventures has been helping my family and friends plan their trips. I think I would be a great asset to the Moms Panel and would love the opportunity to help others make their vacations magical.

Heather from GA on September 1st, 2010 at 1:27 pm

Pamela If you find a real Disney travel agents pert you’ll be better off. The price is actually the same if you’re comparing apples to apples. If you find an agent that goes annually and is up on their continued education you’ll get more inside tips then you could ever imagine. There job isn’t just to book the trip but start the magic before you ever arrive. I suggest asking anagent if they are a Disney college of knowledge grad and up on their courses.

15

Kelly on September 1st, 2010 at 1:29 pm

I would love to do this. We have been visiting every year for the past 9 years and yes, every time someone I know gets ready to go, I help them plan and give them some insight. I actually keep an updated Disney folder with new information.

16

Michelle from GA on September 1st, 2010 at 1:30 pm

We are a BIG Disney family! I fell in love with the parks on my first trip in 97- since then my husband and I have had annual passes! We are lucky enough to live 4 hours away so we try and make a trip to visit the Mouse about every 6 wks! We have had the pleasure of assisting many people with their plans…it is so much fun to introduce the magic to others!! I’ve never applied to the Mom’s Pannel before – but I plan to this year! BTW – going to see Mickey tomorrow!!!

17

Marie on September 1st, 2010 at 1:31 pm

As a grown Disney Princess :) I would love to be a panel mom!! I am THE go-to person for my family, friends, school alumni… It’s wonderful getting to share in the magic of helping to plan for the magic!! My first visit to Disney was at age 3, and have been coming every year since. We have been passholders for the last 6 years and visit often. Love ya M-I-C-K-E-Y !!!!

lisa on September 1st, 2010 at 1:32 pm

Before i was a mom my parents took me twice a year to Disney, so i know alot about the place. I became a mom in Feb 2009 and my son has been there once and we will be there when you are taking applications. I hope to get my hands on a computer while we are there. I would love to be a part of the moms panel.

Elizabeth from OH on September 1st, 2010 at 1:33 pm

My experience as former character entertainer at WDW and passion for all things Disney lead friends & family to me for travel information. As a STAH, avid baby-blogger and active coupon-cutter, I feel comfortable giving away advice, tips & tricks! I hope I’m selected!

20

Billie from NJ on September 1st, 2010 at 1:34 pm

If you have applied before can you apply again? I go to Disney at least twice a year. This year will be 3 times. I am all about Disney but am not a “MOM”. Last year I received an email to join the Mickey Mom’s Club. I proudly drive w/ my magnet on my car. :) I plan our trips & help with planning for family, friends & co-workers. I am all about Disney and have been since a baby.

21

Jennifer from MI on September 1st, 2010 at 1:36 pm

I fit this profile!!! I will definitely be back on the 13th! We go to Disney World every year (at least once) and obsess over the planning details for our trip! My sister and I will both hope to be selected!!!

22

Pam from NJ on September 1st, 2010 at 1:36 pm

I would love to be on the Moms Panel! I have been to Walt Disney World 26 times in my 36 years – and I haven’t missed one year since 1993! I am the person people turn to for advice on planning their Disney World or Cruise vacation (we’ve been on the Disney Cruise 5 times). I am also a writer – I have a humor blog about parenting called You Are Kidding Me!. I’ll be sure to check out the application when it’s available!

23

penny from LA on September 1st, 2010 at 1:37 pm

YES!!! I am going to be 50 next month- I have a 23 yr old daughter, a 12 year old son and a 5 year old grandsson! I have been to disney world so many times that I can’t even guess the # ( I go at least once a year…sometimes 2 or 3 times) and I have been on 5 Disney cruises- the last one in June to Gilbraltar, Spain, Portugal and the UK. I am going Sept 23rd to DisneyWorld for the Halloween party with a co- worker and I have 2 cruises booked for next year. We will be staying at animal kingdom lodge again before the cruise on the new Disney Dream in July ( water slide on board…yipee!!!) and we will be going to Disneyland in November after the Mexican Riviera cruise. I definately qualify to be on a “MOM” panel as everyone ask me the ins and outs of planning a Disney “DREAM” vacation. My aka is the Disney Dork and I am proud of it!!!! Would love more info on helping Disney to continue being the best vacation company EVER!!!

24

Kimberly on September 1st, 2010 at 1:38 pm

I love Disney World!! We just took our 2 kids there over Spring Break this year and I planned it all. I would love to be a Disney Mom!

25

lisa from FL on September 1st, 2010 at 1:39 pm

We go every weekend and know all the little ins and outs.I would just love to help others out!

26

Lorie on September 1st, 2010 at 1:40 pm

Oh what a wish come true that would be. I so love DisneyWorld, and everything Disney. I have been a fan since I was a little girl. After I had my daughters I could not wait to share the most magical place on earth with my two little miracles. I always plan our trips when we go and am working on our next trip for September 2012. I am always going on the Disney website to check out the latest happenings at the theme parks. I just everything about Disney, the entertainment, the food, the rides, just the feeling it evokes as you walk through the gates!! Ahhh it truely is a magical place!!!!

27

Jennifer from MD on September 1st, 2010 at 1:41 pm

My hubby and I do the planning as a joint venture but I manage the little details and he handles all the vacation club details. We have been to Disney 6 times since 2005 and we have also taken a Disney Cruise as well as staying at Vero Beach and Hilton Head DVC spots! We like to try different hotels and restaurants every time we go!

28

Antoinette from FL on September 1st, 2010 at 1:41 pm

I have been trying to get on panel since it began! My car magnet is still on my car (although faded) maybe this will be the year!

29

Tawny from FL on September 1st, 2010 at 1:42 pm

I love the fact that Disney understands the importance of helping those who have children with Autism get through the lines faster with the hadicap pass. I have 3 children on the Autism spectrum and there is no way we would last waiting in long lines. This will be our first trip next week to all four parks in orlando with our kids, I hope it all runs smoothly for us. :) We are all very excited :)

30

Colleen on September 1st, 2010 at 1:44 pm

I would LOVE to do that! My youngest just started 1st grade, I can’t go anywhere without talking about Disney! (Just ask my husband!)

31

Lou from TX on September 1st, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Jacqueline from Angus on September 1st, 2010 at 1:48 pm

I would love to be on the Disney mum’s panel, I have only been to Euro Disney twice but i have been to Florida’s Walt Disney World 19 times now, so you could say i am a bit of a Disney addict!! So i would love to do this :)Good luck to everyone!

35

Janene on September 1st, 2010 at 1:49 pm

I am thrilled that you are opening this up to additional moms. We are HUGE Disney fans and visit frequently throughout the year.

36

joni on September 1st, 2010 at 1:49 pm

me!me!me! definitely a disney addict!!!

37

Lisa on September 1st, 2010 at 1:52 pm

I would love to be a panelist. I have been going to Disney since I was a kid. The perks of having your father work for an airline. They when I had kids their first plane was to Orlando to go to Disney. Pick me Pick me!!

38

Mysti on September 1st, 2010 at 1:56 pm

I don’t fit the demographic at all. I’m single, childless and 33 but When ever anyone visits any Disney park or takes a Disney cruise I get a text, phone call or email, asking for advice, tips and sometimes even to plan their trip. I go to Disney world a lot since one of my brothers has for as long as I remember worked for an Airline. I will apply.

39

Nancy from NY on September 1st, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Love the Mom’s Panel! Have gotten some great advice on here! Good luck to everyone applying! Also, I love that picture of all the Moms (and Dads) with Mickey, Minnie and Pluto – Pluto looks so cute :)

kerry from NC on September 1st, 2010 at 2:00 pm

OMG! This is for me! Our family loves Disney! We’ve been to WDW 3 times since Thanksgiving ’09, and are already planning our next trip(this is gonna be our family trip befor my son goes off to the Navy-can’t think of a better place to make memories) And everytime I mention a trip, all my friends ask, when we are going, but never ask where because that is a given. And, I’m actually a unofficial “MOM” cause I’ve been contacted by friends of friends, who are in the Disney planning process, and I’m constantly recommending where people should go, and what they should do, and what will best fit into their schedule and their family dynamic.

41

Paula on September 1st, 2010 at 2:02 pm

I have been to Walt Disney World since I was born… 39 years ago! :0) My husband and I spent out honeymoon there, My family goes back atleast 4 times a year. Our vacation is spent there, we stay for 2 weeks every single year. My kids are growing up there just like my husband and I did. If anyone hears someone talking about going to Disney, they tell them to come talk to me.. lol This would be perfect for me. When I retire I want to go to work there…

42

Tracy from MI on September 1st, 2010 at 2:06 pm

I would love to help others experience Disney! We have been to Disney World every year for the last 8 years! We just love all things Disney! We are annual pass holders and Disney Vacation Club Members. It would be wonderful to help others make the most of their vacation. :)

43

Kevin from IL on September 1st, 2010 at 2:08 pm

I have tried for this every time, but so far have not made the cut. I love planning Disney trips almost as much as I love being at Disney, almost I said. I love it when people ask me for advice on what to do, where to stay, when to go, where to eat,…I just love it all and helping people get the most from their trip. Will try again this year, who knows maybe this will be the year.

44

Aimee on September 1st, 2010 at 2:15 pm

I would love to be a member of the Disney World mom’s panel. It seems whenever we get back home from a trip I am already planning the next one!!! We love it!!!

45

Coleen on September 1st, 2010 at 2:16 pm

I would love to be considered as a mom on the Mom’s Panel. Our family has faithfully visited Disney. Since 2005 we visit faithfully every two years.
Everytime we visit Disney we always find something new and wonderful. Being a mother of grown children (29, 25, and 29), and a tween (12), as well as being a grandmom of two children (7 & 4), I believe my experience can help others as they plan that wonderful Disney experience. As DVC members we only see our Disney experiences becoming more diverse. I hope you consider me as one of the mom’s on the panel. Have a magical day!

46

Kelley on September 1st, 2010 at 2:20 pm

This is right up my alley! I do the planning for groups every year! This is great. 33, 3 kids, and lots of friends who love Disney!

47

David from FL on September 1st, 2010 at 2:25 pm

Definitely something I would be interested in. I have been going to Walt Disney World since 1971 when they first opened. I have had a premium annual pass for several years and we are also a DVC member.

48

Brian on September 1st, 2010 at 2:29 pm

I am a Disney Dad and will be applying! See you in November.

leah on September 1st, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Nancy on September 1st, 2010 at 2:46 pm
