I was wondering that too! The process already seems different this year, with the mystery of "watch this page every day in September"! I'm almost afraid to go to sleep in case I miss something!!

I think Laura and her team have a very talented group waiting in the wings this year - I don't know how she'll be able to choose, so we'll just all have to be 2013 Moms Panel members!!

So true!!! I have to admit I got very emotionally involved last year and promised myself not to do that again. It's hard not to though! I think with anything Disney, emotions always run a little high (especially the older I get )

The only thing getting my mind off the MP selection is finalizing the details for my girls-only Food & Wine weekend... now I need to think of a gift for the girls. I was thinking of putting together special lanyards & ordering the "Minnie & Daisy bff" trading pin ~OR~ I could order a customized Disney Tervis Tumbler. At least with the tumbler, we'd use them more often.

What do you think?

Good morning everyone!

I saw that Laura tweeted that she was on her way to L.A. to "meet with her Disneyland Peeps". Perhaps a west coast Moms Panel Pow Wow for 2013 search strategy???

I think things are heating up!!

to all - have a great day!

Laura

Me too!! Perhaps next year at this time we'll actually be there ourselves!!!

Walt Disney said "if you can dream it, you can do it", so let's all dream it!!

to all,

Laura

Good morning all my fellow "We are anxiously awaiting the day we can apply for the Disney Mom's Panel" Disers! I'm trying to keep my mind busy by planning our 18th trip to WDW which will include my 79 year old mother, our daughter and her husband, our 15 year old son and my husband and myself. Three generations going to Walt Disney World together! You may have noticed my 2012 trip report name.....yeah, there's no telling what kind of hijinks we may get into in May, 2013.

We too have 3 generations going! We are taking my MIL, who has never been before, my parents are meeting us, my youngest will be experiencing his first time as well, and I will be 23 weeks pregnant! Should indeed be a fun and exciting trip!

It sounds like ya'll will be having just as much fun as we will! It's so neat to see Walt Disney World through a first-timer's eyes. My mother went to Disney World with us back in 2000 and didn't return until 2010 so it was like a whole new "world" for her.

I think planning is half the fun! What a great time you're going to have! My 81 year-old Mom travels with me too and will be my "roadtrip co-pilot" for our trip later this month. She's really amazing - and is proof that Disney magic never fades (actually I think it gets stronger and more emotional as we get older!!)

If I didn't have my trip reports to write and the planning of our next trip, I'd have a major case of Disney blues.

Isn't it wonderful traveling with your mother? Our road trip to Disney is between 14 and 16 hours (depends on how many stops we make so that my mom can stretch her legs) and, while some would think we'd get tired of each other, we never do. My mother was diagnosed with arthritis in both feet and we are unsure if we will need to rent a scooter or wheelchair for her this trip. I'm thinking we'll play it by ear on a day to day basis.

I agree planning is 1/2 the fun! I am busy planning a trip for our family in November. We are going with my inlaws and my sister in law and her family. Her husband and 4 kids have never been to Disney! Between us we will have 8 children under 9 and 6 adults! It is going to be a blast!
