I am having dreams nightly about Disney stuff, being at WDW helping people.°O°
I check on my phone every few minutes even though my phone vibrates when I get mail. Then I go on my laptop and check even though I have already checked. Lol slightly obsessed now ;0)

Of all weekends, I lost my iphone on the train ride home on Friday , so I've been basically "house bound" since then! I've got every computer in the house open to email, Disboards, Facebook, and Twitter, so I won't miss a thing!

Today, we are having our (Canadian) Thanksgiving dinner and I just put 2 pumpkin pies in the oven! Loving the smell already...

Continued luck and pixie dust , everyone! Maybe today.....

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you!!! I hope you have a great day with family!! I love the smell of pumpkin!!!

Good luck to you too and to everyone else!!! Hopefully today will be the day!!!!

I guess we're all still waiting!!

Does anyone know exactly how many they are accepting onto the panel? I'm just curious to know what my actual odds are. I know it's not great, but I'm just wondering! And do you know how many go onto round 2? Is it a lot?

Oh, and by the way, I finally changed my disboards name, so I'm back to square one with posts, so I can't change it myself on the official list, but you can certainly change it for me if you want. It was MWinKY and now it's MagicalPix.

Good luck to everyone!!

Yesterday we attended a family wedding which helped take my mind off things. We went cosmic bowling in between wedding & reception. My son with moderate autism (Aidan) was all dressed up (shirt & Mickey tie) and was DETERMINED to dance with me. My aspie has no social anxiety and is a dancing fool! I was really worried my feet would flare up & I wouldn't last long, but the second the dance floor opened up, Aidan took me by the hand and said "come on old girl."

Long story short, I DANCED MY FACE OFF ALLLLL NIGHT LONG!!! If someone would have told me six months ago I would dance all night, I would have never believed them. It was one of the happiest moments in my life- to have that much fun dancing with my boys.

Afterwards, I couldn't help but wonder what got in to me. Normally, I dance some, but not like last night. Then it dawned on me, I wanted my kids to experience dancing. Aidan would not have danced with anyone else, and I wanted that experience for him. I wanted my older son to dance with his mama and remember that I am crazy fun mama, not the shell of his mom that couldn't walk good for 3 years.

Last night was a turning point for me. It was the first time in three years I did not feel disabled. It makes me soooo excited for our WDW trip over Thanksgiving. We have had so many special moments there, and now I feel confident that I can keep up, ride rides, and make many more unforgettable memories!

I just wanted to share a story of hope and perseverance while we what for the possible. I wish we all could make it. I know no matter what happens for me I will keep on swimming

I'm going to tuck my phone away & try to enjoy the day and not check every 10 minutes!

Julie - what a wonderful day! I can hear the excitement and happiness in your voice as you describe all you did yesterday. I am so glad for you that you were able to share such a fun occasion with your family. I know you must be beyond excited about your upcoming WDW trip and all the wonderful memories that you'll make there!

Thanks for feeling my pain! I'm hoping to get my own phone back, actually. I know where I lost it, it fell down under my seat. It was funny because for the first 24 hours or so, I was able to track it using the "Find my iphone" app on my DH's phone! Battery must be dead because now it says it's "offline". I'll check with Lost and Found on Tuesday... Back to the waiting.....

Every year it's different. Depending on who's leaving and what the needs are.

Last year they only took 1 rundisney applicant. I would expect them to add 2 more (ok, total guess in my part- lol!). I have no idea if they will but its becoming more popular every year do its not unheard of

I think only one mom from UK was taken they year I was a finalist.

They have taken 12 panelists or 20 + in the past. Just depends on need!

I believe there were 33 finalists in 2010 and were chosen. (But can't remember for sure, those are ballparks)

Ok on phone. That didn't make sense! 33 and 12 were taken- ballpark figure

Going from the list on the first post from last year's thread:

There were 152 people who had accounts on the DisBoards who made it through to Round 2;

Of those 152, 19 were selected to move on to the Round 3 phone interviews;

And of those 19, 10 made the WDW Mom's Panel (and I believe there were 15 new Panelists overall).

As far as how many people total move on to Rounds 2 and 3, I have no idea; but you can see that 2/3 of the people who made the Panel last year were a part of our thread!
