Disney Parks Moms Panel 2014 Search Coming Soon

2 Aug

It’s almost that time of year again. The Disney Parks Moms Panel 2014 Search is coming soon….

Help Spread Some Vacation Pixie Dust – Coming Soon!

Have you and your family experienced numerous Disney Parks vacations? Do you consider yourself a “go-to” person who is always on the lookout to help a friend plan a magical Disney vacation? If you answered yes to these questions, we’d like to hear from you!


In 2008, the Disney Parks Moms Panel was created to serve as an online forum of vacation advisors. The advisors were everyday people who would answer questions and offer advice to families in the process of planning a trip to Walt Disney World® Resort.

Since then, the panel has become a valuable resource for thousands of Disney Parks guests. It’s also grown in breadth since its initial launch. Now, Disney Parks Moms Panelists not only help plan magical vacations for guests heading to Walt Disney World Resort, but also answer guest questions about Disneyland® Resort, Disney Cruise Line®, Disney Vacation Club®, runDisney® and ESPN Wide World of Sports® Complex.


When I first applied back in 2008, I hadn’t visited the Walt Disney World Resort since 2003. Needless to say, I did not make it past the first round of applicants. Since then, however, I have visited Walt Disney World at least once a year. I’ve also applied to be on the Moms Panel every year. It may seem crazy to some, but I know that I should never give up on my dreams.

I’ve shared parts of my roller coaster journey in a few blog posts, which can be found in the WDW Moms Panel category, but my family and close friends have heard the most. All of the stresses, the excitement when I get an email telling me I am moving on to the next round, and the devastation when “my year” didn’t come once again. I’m happy that I’ve been persistent though, and that I keep on believing the dream that I wish will come true. I’ve been in the second round of applicants for the past three years. And last year was my first year making it all the way to the round three phone interview.

What will my sixth year of applying hold? You’ll have to follow along with me to find out!

Everybody neat and pretty? Then on with the show!

In less than 12 hours I will be on one of the most important phone calls of my life…. What an amazing journey it has been during this year’s Walt Disney World Moms Panel search! It has taken me five years to make it to the final round of the selection process and I already feel so incredibly blessed. Out of the literally thousands of moms and dads who apply each year, I am one of the few who have been selected for a phone interview. This is the final step before the 2013 Moms Panel is chosen.

Pixie dust wishes to all those in Round 3. May our phone interviews go well this week, and each of us feel a sense of pride and relief when it is all over. Thank you to my dear friends for your kind words of support! You’re the best chEARleaders I could ask for! ºoº.•:*¨¨*:•.ºoº

It’s a Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Day!

It’s a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day indeed! I am beyond excited to say that have made it to Round 3 for the 2013 Walt Disney World Moms Panel selection process! 😀 The phone interviews for this finale phase will begin next week. Thank you for all of the thoughts, prayers, support, and pixie dust. ºoº.•:*¨¨*:•.ºoº Congratulations to everyone moving on as well!

After submitting my Round 2 essays and video, the past two weeks have seemed to go by very slowly. I know we’ve all been waiting anxiously, especially after last week’s #WDWMoms fun on Twitter.

I appreciate all of the texts, privates messages and posts from my wonderful Disney friends. Sorry for the delay in letting everyone know I made it. I was waiting to get my boys to bed before I started the social media announcements. 😉 I meant to write this post much earlier, but was delayed responding to everyone. Thanks again for all of the support and encouragement! 😀 

To those of you who did not make it, never give up on your dreams! It has taken me five years to make it this far. Always keep moving forward! ºoº.•:*¨¨*:•.ºoº
