M-I-C, See you real soon. K-E-Y, Why? Because we like you. M-O-U-S-E
Do you recognize this song? I sing it every time I return HOME to Walt Disney World in Florida. I have been lucky enough to be able to visit Disney World just about every year since I was 12. Without giving my age away; I have had a Disney obsession for almost 20 years.
I am a planner at heart so I frequent Disney’s website a lot. I MEAN EVERY DAY A LOT. I like to see what’s happening at the parks, the resorts and catch up on the blog posts. I receive daily emails from all sorts of Disney related subscriptions and follow just about every thing Disney related on Social Media sites. That being said I was super excited to read about the Disney Parks Mom Panel. Not sure what this is? Well let me give you the 4.1.1.
Disney Parks Mom Panel is a question and answer forum where online moms, dads and grandparents offer advice, respond to questions and provide tips about Walt Disney Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, Disney Vacation Club, Disney Cruise Line, team sports at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and runDisney events. This panel is made up of independent contractors and are not technically employed by the Disney Company.
While I was searching the questions that have already been answered by this amazing panel of Disney Fans (just like me); I also noticed that the search for the 2015 Disney Parks Mom Panel was about to open. Since I am a planner, I marked it on my calendar and so began the wait!
After doing some research it appears there will be 4 Rounds in which qualifiers will be asked to perform certain tasks or challenges to advance to the next round. When the day finally arrived, I made sure I was ready. I submitted my Round 1 application and sprinkled my self with “Pixie Dust” (figuratively of course).
Social Media has played an outstanding role in keeping the anxiety of the Round 2 notification at bay. I have made some new friends and learned a little a few things about Disney that I may not have know before. Finally, the day myself and many others had been waiting for had arrived. My Twitter feed was already blowing up with news of other Disney Parks Mom Panel hopefuls had made it to Round 2. As I went to log into my email account, I found the email I was waiting for…
So thankful to have been chosen to move on and can not wait to see what is in store for all the Disney Parks Mom Panel hopefuls. I’ll keep my awesome readers updated as the next round is set to open Tuesday October 21st, 2014.
Wish me luck and Pixie Dust!
