What’s Your Pixie Dust Level?

Members of the 2011 Walt Disney World Moms Panel

Are you the person who is so passionate about Disney vacations that you plan them, not just your family, but for friends, coworkers – absolutely anyone who asks about all things Disney?

In just a few months we will begin the search for the next group of vacation-planning magic makers to join the online and media celebrities on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel! The competition is fierce among thousands of Disney-loving guests who send us applications from all over the world. If you think you have the right stuff to be considered for a coveted spot on this very special website, we’d love to hear from you!

With more than twenty resort hotels, four theme parks, two water parks, shopping, dining, entertainment and more, planning a Walt Disney World vacation can leave some visitors feeling a bit overwhelmed. That’s why in 2008, we created the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, an online forum of vacation advisors made up of everyday people who answer questions, offer advice and address specific concerns of families in the process of planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort.

Five years later, the panel has become a vacation planning phenomenon and now the panelists help plan magical vacations for people who are not just heading to Walt Disney World Resort, but for folks wanting to take a Disney Cruise, an Adventures By Disney excursion, visit our Disney beach resorts, Disneyland Resort and more!

We will be looking for passionate, knowledgeable and exuberant enthusiasts who love:

The application period begins after 9 a.m. EST on Sept. 12, 2011, until Sept. 16, 11:59 p.m. EST. Many will apply, but only a handful will have the perfect mix of pixie dust, passion and knowledge to make it to their new online thrones. For those who love Disney Destinations, this is your way to share your passion with the world. Good luck to all who apply and I will be meeting some of you soon!


  • I want to add my thanks for this great opportunity! I am so excited to apply again this year. I’ll have to wait until I return from our trip to WDW to do so as we’ll be there Sept, 8-15. My “call” seems to be to educate couples and singles that Disney is NOT just for families, but for them too. Many tell me that they never considered a Disney vacation until hearing me recount our trips with such enthusiasm. Sending pixie dust to everyone–good luck!

  • I am sure my HUSBAND will want to apply this year, as his hobby is Walt Disney World. He helps plan vacations for his friends going to WDW, and most of the favorites on his computer are Walt Disney web sites!

  • I look forward to exciting the “older generations,” (maybe Grandparents?) to come to the parks. I’m older myself. I asked a good friend, “before you met me did you think Disneyland or Disney World would be a fun place to vacation?” She said, “no.” Now she waits with bated breath to get there, as I do. We are going to Disney World in four weeks…FOUR WEEKS!!!..The countdown has begun.

  • I’m so excited to apply again this year! I can’t wait to hear more details!!

  • Everyone thinks all of the boxes in my house are filled with clothes, dishes, you know, stuff. Nope. They’re filled with PIXIE DUST! So excited to apply for the Mom’s Panel again.

  • Can’t wait! This will be the first time I entered! Just got back from my vacation first time with my two boys! Love Disney <3

  • I think the Mom’s Panel is a genius idea! I applied last year and am looking forward to another opportunity to dream the big Disney dream of making the panel. I, too, truly enjoy “talking Disney” with friends and family. I am confident that everyone who wants to visit the WDW Resort can get there with some help. 🙂 The amazing thing about WDW is that just when you think you might know just about everything there is to know, you learn something new! That is a beautiful thing. It seems there is always a new dream on the horizon and that is exactly what keeps us all fascinated, committed and returning over and over and over. Thank you Laura and Disney for this chance to live the dream! Pixie dust to all.

  • My pixie dust level is very, very, very, very, very high – I plan WDW vacations for myself, my family, my co-workers – in fact, anyone who is stupid enough to mention the word “Disney” within my hearing range! Just today I gave a small presentation at work on Customer Service, citing Disney park Cast Members as a wonderful example of Customer Service at its best! (And my new tattoo is a Hidden Mickey!)

    I will definitely be applying again in September – you need more representation from the UK!

  • Disneyland moms like me have been waiting for this for a long time! I can’t wait to apply!

  • So SUPER excited!! I LOVE all things Disney. I plan vacations for friends and family just to feel those butterflies of excitement in my belly in between my trips!! Good luck to everyone!!!

  • Oh my gosh! My pixie dust level soars to another universe! I would love to do this!! We have been to WDW every year since my girls have been born and I give as much advice as I can to friends and co-workers that are going. Can’t wait to apply!!

  • Excited to see that you are adding a Disneyland panel!! Is it still a requirement that you have been to Walt Disney World within the last 12 months to apply for this particular addition?

  • My Pixie Dust level is to the moon!! I’m so excited to apply for a spot on the Moms Panel again this year that I may just explode into a poof of Pixie Dust right here in my living room!!! 🙂 Can’t wait for September!!

  • Planning family trips to Disney is a year long day dream for me. I love reading and hearing about what is going on in the Disney family. I am a fanatic about runDisney and plan all of our visits around races at WDW. The races provide a perfect balance with fun and food at the parks. I can’t wait to apply for the panel this year. Until then I will continue to plan our next trip for the Princess Half and help others who are planning trips to Disney however I can. Thanks for sharing!

  • Very exciting. Where should those interested go on the specified dates to complete an application?

  • My Pixie Dust level is super high! I would love to be on the panel! Except i’m not a mom.. and i’m still technically a kid (especially at heart :)). I wish they had a teens panel…. :/

  • Thanks for the head’s up. I’ll definitely be trying again this year!

  • Me! Me! Pick Me! What a wonderful opportunity and I look forwarding to applying in September. Thank you Disney!

  • Looking forward to this….and I am assuming you can be a ‘dad’ and still be on this panel.

  • Pixie dust level = High! I have planned vacations for friends and relatives in addition to my own family for the last 20 years. The Disney Mom’s Panel was a fantastic idea – keep up the good work!

    • I can’t wait to read all your applications! Well, I will need some eye drops, but I’m excited still the same! Good luck everybody!
