What about the Moms Panel? Is it still in existence? Seems to have disappeared, never hear anything about it anymore.

Yes, of course!

We swear by these Disney features every year – we order the awesome maps which are terrific! It’s fun to pick and choose our rides – granted we love them all. Dining reservations are a snap! The My Disney and Fast Pass selections only add another whole dimension to planning! Thanks Disney!

Every time try to go to customized maps it will never open the page. Is it because I’m from Canada?

It would be good if the planning DVDs and customised maps were available to those of us outside of the US and Canada. We like planning too!
