Hi all!
This will be my first time applying, I am
so excited to be a part of the process! I am a guidance counselor, wife and mother of 3... not necessarily in that order.

We are relatively new DVC members and always seem to have a trip in the works. Our next trip is in 10 days, it will be my one year olds THIRD trip!

I will be turning 40 this year and am seriously contemplating running in the Princess 1/2 marathon. Pretty scary considering I've been running for less than a year!!!

Can't wait for this...good luck to all

Can you adopt me? I'm 30 so you won't even have to change me! Haha!

I want to be able to walk the Princess 1/2. I don't know if 2013 is going to happen but if not 2014 for sure. It looks like so much fun and would be a great goal for me to work towards. The more I watch the videos on YouTube the more I want to do it!

We leave for our Disney World vacation Sept 9 and will be there through the 17. Hoping that applying from there will give me some extra pixie dust! Also, just committed to our first cruise for Feb 2014. Can't wait to start planning that trip!

Hi Laurali! I think you will have extra special Pixie Dust applying right at the source of the magic. We just returned from our first Disney Cruise (to Alaska). You are in for an amazing voyage.

Hey all.

It's almost that time again!!

I got involved in last year's thread. This will be my third year applying. We came back from an awesome cruise sandwich just about over a week ago.

A little about me. I am a father of two (DD 5 and DS 1). My wife is a teacher. DD is starting kindergarten this year, and DS just went on his first trip to WDW!! I work as a freelance television director and last year I was a SAHD with both kids. This year it looks like I will be doing the SAHD thing with just my son as DD will be in school full-time.

We live in Long Island, NY. (I say that like it's an actual town, but it's the easiest way to describe where I live.) We have been DVC members since 2007, and we just cruised on the Dream and stayed at BLT and BCV. Our future trip plans are to possibly do HHI next summer and WDW in the fall for MNSSHP!! We also loved the Dream so much we want to go back in the summer of 2014!!

I wish everyone the best of luck!! Can't wait to get the ball rolling and see who the next panelists are going to be!!

Hi All!
Back again for another try! The excitement, the trepidation, the heart pounding anxiety...why oh why do I do it? I suppose the reason we all do it --an overwhelming love for all things Disney!

So, I have never made it past stage one and I am determined to make it this time. With all of the applicants likely to be as smart, witty, and Disney-smitten, what do you suppose the key is to making it past that first round?

Also, what is the ETA on the opening of the application period?

Have a Magical Day!
Anne

I'm ineligible to apply this year, so I will just send the best vibes possible to all of the applicants.

I do have a question for the panelists, though. I figured that you each went to WDW once or twice a year for training and such, but really just worked from your living rooms and answered questions as they came in. However, everyone keeps talking about what a wonderful family it is. Could someone expand on what it is like to be on the panel?

I'm sure everyone will have an answer as to how it's a big family. You really only go once for training, and then you do work from home, but each year, we've organized a "family reunion" so that we can get together and spend some time with each other, and any time a Mom is headed down, we kind of let the other Moms know so that if any of our trips are overlapping - or for Orlando area Moms - we can try to get together. We support each other on a daily basis with things that go well beyond the panel. We've been there for each other through issues with family, health crisis, even through the very sad passing of one of our very dearest Moms. We text, we email, we phone call. It was like getting a whole big bunch of brothers and sisters! We've even met up away from Walt Disney World on numerous occasions!

So, there is so much more to look forward to than just answering questions!

Anna said it perfectly! I feel so blessed to have inherited so many new brothers and sisters through this process! You definitely forge genuine relationships with the other panelists! I can't imagine my life without these guys!

I'm not a mom, so I'd never thought of applying to the panel -- until last year. On a bus ride back to our resort, I struck up a conversation with a woman who turned out to be a Moms Panelist! We talked about the adventures that my group and I had already had this year, and she encouraged me to look into joining (despite the fact that I'm not a mom.) So, I am anxious to see what the rules are, and if I might fit in!

I am a nanny, and the planner for my group of friends. I was fortunate enough to do the "AP thing" last year, and went on half a dozen trips. It was a "once in a lifetime" experience, that was awesome enough we are planning a repeat in 2013. We have a plethora of food allergies in the group, so I consider navigating them at Disney an area of expertise, in addition to all of the normal planning pieces!

I may not post much, but I will be following this thread, waiting with baited breath for the application to go up.

Question for everyone -- how much time is there for the initial app to be completed? Is it like a race to click the button, or are there a couple of days to get things pulled together?

I look forward to riding the roller coaster with y'all!
