Do you love planning Disney vacations and sharing your thoughts with others?  Well you are in luck!  The Walt Disney World Moms Panel is accepting applications now through September 16, 2011 11:59pm or when 20,000 applications have been received.  Check out http://www.disneyworldmoms.com/search2012 to apply.

I submitted my application yesterday and I’m keeping my fingers crossed.  I love all things Disney and travel – I’d love to help other families plan their dream vacation to Walt Disney World. Here’s the scoop directly from the folks at Disney!

How to Apply

Disney Parks will accept applications for the 2012 Walt Disney World Moms Panel from 9:00 a.m. EDT on September 12, 2011 until September 16, 11:59 p.m. EDT., or when 20,000 applications have been received. Those interested should visit www.disneyworldmoms.com/search2012 to enter. The first steps of the application process begin with a series of written questions and submissions. The final round of applicants will participate in a brief phone interview. Once the search is complete, the top candidates will be named to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel in January 2012. Panelists must be available to attend a training session at Walt Disney World Resort in December 2011.

About the Walt Disney World Moms Panel

The Walt Disney World Moms Panel is an online forum where guests can get tips and insights for a Disney vacation from real moms, dads, grandparents and even an aunt who have mastered the art of planning Disney vacations. Guests can pose questions to the panelists, as well as gain access to other vacation-planning tools for booking a Disney vacation. Featuring just 12 members during its inaugural year in 2008, the panel now boasts 43 park-savvy panelists as a result of the popularity of the site and an ever-growing number of questions submitted by curious parents. For more information and to meet the panelists, visit www.disneyworldmoms.com.

Have you sent in your Walt Disney World Moms Panel application?   I’d love to hear your thoughts on the application process!

    I applied for the first time this year. I’m thinking there are a lot of people with a lot more Disney trips under their belt then me but I’m hoping my mad planning skills, writing experience and overall enthusiasm gets me in the door!

    • Carrie with Children

      This is my first year sending in my application too, Jennifer! I figured it was worth a try! Good luck to you!

  • DisneyMacAddict

    This is my first time applying. I figure the chances are pretty low but if you don’t apply the chances are zero. When do they notify those selected to advance on? Hoping they need another Dad on the panel. Good luck.

    • Carrie with Children

      That’s exactly how I feel – Never know until you try! Good luck to you! I’m not sure what the timeline is for selecting those that move on to the “next round”. Will keep you posted if I hear anything!

  • Jessica

    Good luck to you Carrie! I also applied (I know it’s a long shot), it would be such an honor to represent Disney!

    • Carrie with Children

      Yay! I’m so glad you applied too, Jessica! With a cap of 20,000 applications being accepted – it’s a long shot for everyone, really! It would definitely be an honor to represent Disney! Keeping my fingers crossed for you – it would be neat to have a local as a panelist! 🙂
