“Pixie Dust Alert!” for the Walt Disney World Moms Panel Hopefuls!

For days, those of us that have been waiting, watching, and hoping for an email to tell us that we made it to the next round of the 2013 Walt Disney World Moms Panel search have been doing our best to stay distracted and be a functioning part of society.

Today, there was even some confusion, as some people went to the recruiting page, and found out that it appeared that they had made it to round 2!  I was one of those, in fact!  However, at that point, we still didn’t have any official word, so the reliability of that information seemed questionable at best.

But then Laura Spencer, the head of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, sent out the tweet “Pixie Dust Alert!” — and the chatter just went crazy!

Everyone started checking email, including me, and guess what?  I made it to round two!  The time is now here to answer several questions and record a video, and I have until Monday night to get it done!

For all of you that didn’t make it to the next round, my heart goes out to you.  I know that there are a ton of people that are well qualified to fill the panel’s chairs.  Have faith, though, if you try again next year, you might be able to make it then!

Applications end tomorrow!

Just a reminder if you haven’t filled in your application yet for the 2011 Walt Disney World Moms Panel, tomorrow today at 11:30 11:59 PM is your deadline!  I suggest that you do it tonight or tomorrow morning because the site may be packed if you wait too long.  For more information, check out my previous blog post.


Good luck!

My application

Well, I’ve done it — I have officially applied to become a “Mom“!  I have read a lot about the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, and everyone that is on the panel felt like they didn’t do well on some part of the process.  Well, I feel the same way!

However, today was not so much about getting onto the Moms Panel — I won’t know until November 8th if I even make it to the next round — it was more about reliving some classic Disney moments.

I would be incredibly honored and humbled if I were to be chosen for the Walt Disney World Moms Panel — but for me, the honor really lies in being able to apply in the first place.  Walt Disney has, as always, really done a lot to continue the Magic for those even when they aren’t at any of the parks.  By opening up a piece of Disney Magic to us, the fans, even when we aren’t at a park just continues our drive towards the next time that we are able to enjoy Disney in person.  So, for now, I’ll keep up the hope of reaching the second round, and know that if I don’t get in this year, there is always next year!

The 2011 Walt Disney World Moms Panel

Tomorrow morning, at 9:00 AM Eastern time, the Walt Disney World Moms Panel will begin accepting applications for the next round of “Moms”.  In case you aren’t aware, the Moms Panel consists of Moms (and Dads) that have knowledge of Disney World, and are willing to help out those that have questions that need answering.  The Moms Panel started in 2008, and has grown almost exponentially since the launch.  This current year consisted of 24 “Moms”, with two Dads on the panel.  In the past, though, there have been six other Dads on the panel.

Since I found out about the Moms Panel I have been really interested in it.  I have been fortunate enough to actually get three of my questions answered, which you can see here, here, and here.

The beauty of the Moms Panel is as a knowledgebase — a repository of information, links, and all sorts of juicy tidbits for the Disney fan in all of us.  Tomorrow, I plan on applying for the panel, in the hopes that I can help out those that need help as I have been helped.  To all that read this and apply, good luck to you!
