You might be wondering what the Disney Parks Moms Panel is. Well it's a forum for Disney Super Fans! Once these super fans are selected to be part of the exclusive panel, they help answer Disney related questions from guests to help make their Disney experience truly magical. And don't worry...you don't have to be a mom! You can be a mom, dad, grandma, aunt, uncle, etc.
The application period opened on September 9th. I wasn't sure if I was going to apply or not. I practically didn't feel worthy enough. But then I decided to give it a shot. For the moms panel, I chose the runDisney focus. Answering the questions was fun because they gave me a chance to reminisce about previous runDisney races.
This week the hype was starting about the Round 2 emails being announced today at 3pm. Twitter was buzzing with #DisneyMP emails. Hopefuls were anxiously waiting by their computer or phone. Me? I was too afraid to check. And I was out running errands with my son, so I was a little pre-occupied at the magical hour. After waiting longer than I could take it, I decided to check my email. And there it was...the Disney Parks Moms Panel Search Update email. Would this update be magical or a bad dream? Turns out...it was magical!
I am moving on to Round 2. There will be more questions to answer and a 60 second video to record. I can't wait until Monday to find out the questions and theme for the video. This such an exciting time because it surrounds something that's in my blood...Disney and runDisney. It doesn't get any better than that!
Congrats to all the Super Fans that made to the next round of the Disney Parks Moms Panel! To the hopefuls that didn't make, keep believing in the magic. Your time will come.
