Well, maybe my fourth try will be the charm? Here's hoping those of us who didn't make it last year good luck for this year.

Now to spend the next two months agonizing over what the questions might be.....

Ugh. We only go to WDW once every other year. I made it to Round 2 last year, but can't even apply this year, as I will miss the "must have visited the park within the last 12 months" date by about 3 weeks.

Good luck everyone!

See you in the 2013 application process!

How exciting that the Panel will be diversified (and hopefully increased) with the various different categories this year!

I wonder if applicants will be limited to choosing just one of the categories, or if we will be able to apply to whatever categories we feel qualified to represent.

Can't wait to participate in this process once again for the 5th year!

Yawn. Another year, another time of not getting past round one.

(Sorry - it's been a bad dad kind of week - the Disney Parent Pulse survey assuming that the readers are all women, dealing with some "parenting" websites that are really "women-only" websites, and kids waking up in the middle of the night have left me a little cranky, and pretty disillusioned on the societal worthiness of SAHDs.)

To paraphrase Eric Idle . . . .

First you must answer me these questions three, ere the second round you see.

There will be three questions - time prohibits me from searching for previous years right now, but there will probably be one "tell us about you & your family" question, one about a previous trip or special memory, and one that is more advice oriented (ie, what attraction would you tell someone that they must try, and why?). Responses are limited to 100 words, and it is a hard cutoff.

Once the deadline passes, or they have a set number of entries (they announce that number at the outset - probably 20,000 or so), they begin the process of going through them. A select group of several hundred will get an email with 3 more questions, and several days in which to answer them. From that second group, a much smaller group, of 40 or 50, I think, will get phone interviews. Generally, we start hearing who made round two sometime in October, IIRC.

Thanks. This sort of thing happens probably five or six times a year - usually, it coincides with the beginning of the school year or a staff change at the Y or library, and I have to break in new people. (As in, no I do not babysit my kids - I parent them. It's not a special day with daddy - it's a Tuesday/every day is a special day with daddy. And yes, even though it no longer applies, I can certainly change a diaper, with one hand, while keeping an eye on the other who is using the potty. It's not special, it's just called being a parent, and I am not some sort of freak.)

Okay, that got a little rant-y there. I'm getting some time with friends tonight, and I might be taking the son to go see his first superhero movie on the big screen this weekend, so it should all turn out fine eventually. And, odds are good, by the time we can sign up for the Moms Panel again, I'll be enthusiastic, with only a little "Grr, why couldn't they have called it the Parent Panel?"

So excited

So excited to see the process start a-new once again! Will be keeping fingers crossed for all of you!

SAHDad, sounds like you are runner? Did you see the DisneyRun position? Maybe good for you? Personally I have only ever run one race (Expedition Everest 5K a few years ago), and it clarified the point that I will never be a runner!!!!!
