The search for the next round of special Disney experts known as the Walt Disney World Moms Panel will begin in September! When I saw the blog post mentioned on Facebook, immediately I got excited, because this is a special time! So many people work really hard to try and prove to the Moms Panel judges that they have what Disney is looking for. While this is a nerve wracking experience for us to go through, it’s a good one also, and I look forward to being able to apply!

For me, this will probably be the last year that I apply. When I applied in 2010, I was excited and honored to be able to do this, but I didn’t do well on my answers, as my rejection letter proved.

In 2011, I was determined to do better, and I did! I made it to the second round, I interviewed my good friend Amanda, who was a Mom on the panel and lives in the same area I do, and I recorded my interview video. However, I didn’t move beyond round two, which I found incredibly difficult and more emotionally draining then I thought it would be.

So, for this year, I want to move further along then I did last year. I would love to be selected for the Moms Panel, but in this instance, I’m a realist. I know that there are thousands of other people that are more qualified then I am to be on the panel. Still, Disney Magic is a powerful thing, and I I’m a dreamer, so I’m going to keep dreaming, and hope that Walt Disney and my good friend Ken Brown are smiling down at me from Heaven, talking about how good I’d be on the Panel.
