It was the email ding heard around the world– DISNEY WORLD that is! And it all had to do with pixie dust, a magical parade and the Moms Panel!
On Friday, moms around the world, including myself, clutched our pearls and waited patiently for an email to pop up announcing who made it through to the second round of the Disney Moms Panel search. And in whimsical Disney style, it was done with class and magical kisses and emails were timed to be sent-in-sync with the 3’oclock “Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.”
And I waited… heart pounding, mind hopeful, feet pacing and praying to hear the ding that could change my destiny and put me one step closer to living out a dream.
And it was the sweetest DING I ever heard!
Yes I advanced to round 2 of the Disney Moms Panel search!
I’m humbled, excited and thankful to be considered to move forward in the Moms Panel search!
For those who don’t know, the Disney Moms Panel is a big deal, not only for panelists who are everyday, enthusiastic Disney moms like me, but for the millions of people around the world searching for answers to their most pressing Disney questions. If you’re planning on visiting the big Mouse House, then you want to prepare for all the awesomeness that’s there. That’s where the panelists come in, a personal concierge of sorts, to answer questions about anything from where to meet your favorite characters to how to get special food requests for a kid who has allergies to what hotel boasts the most amenities catered to your kids! There are so many questions for so many different aspects of Disney from questions about their cruise-line to their ESPN Wide World of Sports Center. Who better to ask than a panel of moms and dads who’ve navigated through the golden gates enough times to help you plan a more personalized and detailed vacation for you and your kids!
Since 2008, millions of visitors have accessed the immense library of questions and answers at disneyworldforum.disney.go.com that have helped Disney guests plan the perfect Disney vacation. Guests can also access personal tips from both panelists and celebrities alike through the dozens of videos live on the site that cover a wide-range of topics including fun and “insider” tips. Park-savvy super Disney fans assist guests in creating memorable Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Aulani/Adventures by Disney, Disney Vacation Club and runDisney vacations.
It would be a huge honor to make this panel but I’ve got a few more steps to go and another phase to get through. But just like Walt Disney said himself, I’ve been up against tough competition all my life and I wouldn’t know how to get along without it! So I meet this challenge with optimism, enthusiasm and the get-er-done gumption that makes me just me. We’ll see how it goes and I’ll keep you guys posted on round 2! Whether I make it through or not, you know I’ve got the Disney goods and you can always come back here for the latest on what’s happening at the Happiest Place of Earth!
Talk to you soon and GOOD LUCK to all my friends who made it to the next merry-go-round!
I’ve got my fingers, toes and eyes crossed!
