A few short weeks ago the announcement came out that this year’s search for new members of the Disney Parks Moms Panel had begun. I shared then that I’d thrown my hat into the ring again this year, hoping for an outcome different than all years past. While time’s passed, Gary Buchanan has kept the Twitter “waiting room” entertained with clues throughout the process.

This week Gary finally announced that Friday would be THE day that an announcement would be made to let hopefuls know if they’ve moved on to Round Two of the process or not. It’s not going to be the easiest day for so many checking emails. Sadly so many will receive news that their journey ends here for this year being part of the process. Of course, they will still chEAR on friends who move through the process because that’s what Disney Moms do.
Even when things are rough, we still support each other and are happy for their happiness. Although I’ve never made to the Panel, watching others on their journey has been so exciting. The friendships that have come from my attempts at joining the Panel are unspeakable. I’ve met some of the most amazing people through the process. Knowing that gives me a little peek into the challenging task the selection committee has trying to narrow down the hopefuls in each round of the process. So many possess the love and knowledge of Disney that I can’t believe the choices the Panel make throughout the rounds.
Wishing everyone the best of luck today. May your email be filled with pixie dust!
