The Disney Parks Moms Panel is a separate section of the official Disney website. Its where future guests ask questions about their upcoming vacation to a hand-picked panel of experts. No question is too big or small for the Moms Panel to take on.
How it Got Started
The Disney Parks Moms Panel got its start in 2008 as part of the forums on the Disney website. Back then, much of the advice given was word-of-mouth from other guests. Today, it’s the go-to source for answers when it comes to questions about planning a Disney vacation.
Who are the Moms on the Mom’s Panel
The experts on the mom’s panel aren’t just moms, but also dads and other in-the-know individuals. Each panel member specializes in a field, such as Disney World resorts, Disneyland Resorts, Disney Cruise Lines and Disney Vacation Club. The panelists all share the love of Disney vacations and are dedicated to making your experience as magical as possible.
How to Apply
A spot on the mom’s panel is a coveted thing among Disney park enthusiasts. Because of this, there is a process that prospective panelist must go through to determine who gets the job. The first step occurs when the panel opens to sign ups, usually in September of each year. During signups, prospects answer a few questions about themselves as well as mock panel questions. If you’re still in the running after sign ups, you have to answer another round of questions as well as submit a one-minute video. In the event your video is chosen to move on to the next round of tryouts, the next step is a 15-minute phone interview. If the interview person likes what he or she hears, you’ll get a notification that you got a spot on the panel. Yay!
