“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!

Meet Frances from Disney Vacations by Distinctive Journeys!

Hello My Dreams of Disney Fans! I’m very excited to introduce myself. My name is Frances Hedrick and I’m a Disney Vacation Planner. My history with Disney goes back to my childhood. I had the honor of being a cast member for Disney at the Disney Store as a Store Manager. One of the many perks of being a manager was a Silver Pass to Disney. It was basically an annual pass. I could bring myself and 3 friends to Disney for free with very few limitations. Needless to say, I took full advantage of it. I took family trip, girls trips, couples trips and romantic getaways a plenty.

I left Disney almost two years ago to help take care of my terminally ill father. I love my dad and don’t regret leaving Disney to be with him for one second. But I was having Disney withdrawls. I went from going to Disney 5 or 6 times a year to zero in the near future.  I started helping friends plan trips to get my Disney fix and one of them said to me “You should go into business doing this.” So here I am, over 1 year later as a Disney Vacation Planner and loving it! I’m able to create magical memories for each of my clients and love every minute of it! I’m here to help you plan your next magical vacation as well. My client Kelly C. named me her “Disney Best Friend”. That name has stuck and I would love to be your Disney Best Friend as well.

Here is what a few clients have said about me.

Kelly C. ~ “You are my Disney best friend! I don’t know what I would have done without you!”

Karen V. ~ “Wow! If I had only known how easy you would make planning this trip, I would have contacted you sooner.”

Lisa H. ~ “I can’t believe that you would change my reservation to save me money. I loved getting the new confirmation in my inbox this morning.”

Richard & Susan M. ~ “Thank you for making our honeymoon unforgettable! The dining reservations that you made us were perfect! Our favorite part was watching the fireworks from EPCOT and the California Grill from our dining tables.”

My team and I are here to help plan your magical vacation one memory at a time as well. Our services are complimentary for our clients.

Peace & Pixie Dust,
