2015 Disney Mom's Panel Search Opens Today

Thought I'd try it once for a lark. It's pretty clear from the beginning that they assume you are already a Disney savant. The questions in the first round seemed to be testing not only grammar but the ability to connect with people while writing. I've got the savant-thing down already, and I think my grammatical skills are up to the task. It's the whole people connection while writing thing that I'm sure will keep me from advancing.

Anyone else trying? You've got until the 15th. In case you're interested, here's the link.

I went for it! I love Disney, and I love writing, so I figured this would be a great opportunity. crossfingers

I applied for WDW. I mentioned that I have been to Disneyland and participated in some runDisney events. Don't know if would help but it certainly can't hurt.

Now we just sit and wait. This is my first year, so I figure no matter what it was fun to try. Plus there is always next year.

Anyone here move on from R1 or from R2? I did not make it past R1 this year, but I know the finalist emails went out this morning. I already have a qualifying trip for the 2017 panel, so I am going to try again yay

Is the Mom's panel open to men? Transgender men? Transitioning men? He-man type men, like me? Just curious.

It's open to anyone...just really poorly named. I belong to a group on Facebook of people who applied this year, and there are men, grandmas, aunts, people without any kids at all. I have heard they are going to change the name to reflect that a bit more. The final emails went out today like I said and so far 3 of the guys in our group made it to the final round.

Sounds fun! I'll have to remember this if we every have kids.

And a simple switch to "Disney Parent's Panel" would fix that right up!

You don't need kids to apply! The next panel will open next September. Keep an eye open for it!
