Disney Mom's Panel - has anyone ever been on the Disney Mom's Panel?

Has anyone ever been on the Disney Mom's Panel? Is the "compensation" equivalent to a part time job?

Ha! I was just on there, and I was wondering the same thing! I wonder if any DISers are 'Mom's Panel' advisors.

No first hand knowledge, but I remembered reading about the two "Dads" on the Mom's panel and found that article again and this is what it said about compensation:

Alomar’s duties, which began earlier this year, include answering 25 questions a week on the forum. His compensation, like all panelists, is a week’s vacation at a Disney park with his family, but that doesn’t seem to be Alomar’s reason for applying.

Interesting reading about all he had to do to get selected also:

Hi there! There are lots of us on the Moms Panel that are also DISers! I joined the panel in 2009 (after making it to the top 24 in 2008) and I love it! The application process will begin again on 9/12 - you should all consider applying!

I made it to round 2, too! Congratulations to everyone else who is moving on. Last year, our video was something along the lines of sharing our favorite Disney memory. Can't wait to see this year's questions!

I too got my "we're so sorry but you didn't make it" email. LaDonna...I don't think being a frequent visitor was considered because we are Premier Passport Holders who visit WDW at least 4 times a year....oh well...maybe next year.
