The Walt Disney World Mom’s Panel is approaching the end of a successful second panel. That means only one thing… they’ll soon be accepting applications for the 2010 Walt Disney World Mom’s Panel. Those selected will join Disney’s online forum of vacation advisors and answer questions, offer advice, and address specific concerns of families in the process of planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort.
Disney receives somewhere north of 15,000 applications to join the panel and they choose between 12 and 16. In my meetings with this year’s Mom’s panel I found that Disney was looking for people who had experience doing some sort of marketing/public relations, were out going (type A personality), and had extensive, but a little specialized, experience planning vacations to Walt Disney World. In short, people like themselves. There’s no indication that the criteria will change for this year’s panel, but your mileage may vary.
There is no pay, but a trip to WDW for training is included. Plus you’re expected to answer 15 questions a week, at a minimum. Applications will be accepted here beginning September 10th.
If you plan to apply or have used the Mom’s Panel in the past, please leave comments with your experience.
