Today marks the third crop of Disney World Moms debut into the world of answering the questions of other theme park guests and vacation planners. If they’re anything like the first two it should be another bang up year. I like when Disney uses social media in new and interesting ways and this certainly qualifies. Especially when the wdw moms take it to other channels (like twitter and facebook).
One thing Disney has done differently this year, however, is to have some of the moms on a part time basis. That means they currently have around 40 people answering questions now, including more men than ever before (I count 5 on the list).
Of course, The Disney Blog’s own Oh Amanda is on the panel this year. Hopefully we’ll hear reports on her experience from time to time/

Inspired, no doubt, by the Australian promo where one lucky soul is paid to spend a year living on an island paradise and using social media to tell the world about his experience, the Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau has come up with a very similar idea. One lucky couple will be paid to enjoy 67 days of fun and excitment exploring everything the Orlando area has to offer.
The Orlando CVB says the selected pair will do everything from roller coaster riding to hang gliding, swimming with dolphins, golfing, shopping, gator wrestling, museum exploring, theatre-going and more.
As the winning pair, you’ll be expected to report on your experiences using cell phones, a digital video camera and still camera supplied to you and share your 67 Days of Smiles with the world through social media tools like blogs, Twitter and Facebook.
The “67 Days of Smiles” will begin this year in late August and end in early November. Both people in the pair must be over 21 and pairs can be any combination of friends, family, or co-workers. All pairs are required to complete a personal profile; submit 500 words in English regarding why their smiles should be chosen; and upload a 60 second or less video in English of both applicants along with photos of both applicants at VisitOrlando.com/67DaysofSmiles by June 30, 2009.
