Thanks for the encouragement! It's nice to hear that an applicant doesn't have to be a blogger or high profile Twitterer (is that really a word? ) in order to make it to the Panel.

I sure wish that it was based solely upon Disney passion....I'd make it straight to the Panel. as would all of the other Disboard hopefuls.

I also don't tweet, blog, belong to any special Disney groups (except this one) nor are we passholders. We scrimp and save to go to Disney once a year- we live too far away to make it financially feasible to go more often. Give it to me straight, I don't have a prayer do I? [/QUOTE]

Please don't stress about this. Last year I applied for the first time and made it all the way to Round 3, I didn't blog, I didn't belong to the DISboards or any other Disney groups (except a UK planning website) and I only tweeted junk about my life! Despite all this, the peeps who decide who gets to go on the panel took me all the way to the final round.

We are not passholders either, we live in the UK so a trip across the pond is rather expensive and we can't afford to do it more than once a year!

Keep believing, there's enough pixie dust for everyone and maybe this is going to be your year to shine. xx

You sound just like me. Last Thursday, I was in Books a Million picking up the latest Birnbaum's Official Guide to Walt Disney World and ended up giving all sorts of travel advise to the cashier who had never been.

That's right, be excited! I truly think everyone has a fair shot at being chosen, and it will be fun to see who advances, both 1st timer and otherwise ;-)

So here is my two cents....I think if we don't hear today then we will hear on Saturday and it will open up on Monday morning like it did last year.

So I have pretty much convinced myself that I did not make it to round 2 this year. Each morning I wake up scroll through my email...see nothing....then make my way over here sure that I am going to see that the notices went out. But alas nothing here either. Each time my phone says it is downloading an email...I hold my breath thinking this might be it!

At least I have a trip to Disneyland in a little over a month to keep me busy. You know shirts to make, invites to print, spreadsheets to create. I am pretty sure my husbands family will think I am a true Disney nut after this vacation. My sister-in-law and her family have never been to Disney. My kids are so excited to show their cousins the Happiest Place on Earth

Hoping for lots of pixie dust today

And now, I have the bug. I will be applying every year (unless I've got the pixie dust this year of course ).

I think I agree with your thought process, unless they will have it open over the weekend to submit which could give people who work M-F more time.

So I think we are back at square one, clueless lol!
