  • Welcome new Moms (and Dads)! You are going to rock it!

  • I agree with all the comments concerning the no seniors. My family and I having been visiting Disney World for the last 11 year for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, each visit 5 to 9 days on
    property. I have applied for the last 7 years. My visits are always with Grands that are now
    11, 13, 21. We don’t live in the State of Fl., which means we have had make travel plans to
    get to Disney.

  • We are going to Disney the last week of March and really want to attend the Frozen dessert party at Epcot, but not dates are listed yet. Can you guys post when the dates are available?

  • Congratulations to all the new moms on the moms panel and also to Jerry the newest mom’s panel dad! Where would we all be without the dads to haul the strollers.

  • I agree with Tasha. I am a senior and have applied almost every year. I bought the Dvc in its first year of operation. We seniors have a unique viewpoint.

  • I totally agree with Tasha! I applied for this on a couple of occasions, and had friends who encouraged me to do so because as a couple (over 55) who does quite a bit of Disney travel, they always come to me for advice. I really thought I had a good perspective to offer, but I guess not. I still enjoy giving information and advice to my friends though.

  • Disappointing that there are no seniors representing a large segment who love to bring their grand kids to Disney 🙁

  • Just out of curiosity, are there any Figment experts on the Panel? Thanks.

  • Welcome to all of the new panelist and welcome back to the veterans! Your answers are always helpful, I love reading them even when I am not asking the question. 🙂
