Is there a therapy group for consistently rejected applicants?! I really was hoping this was my year, but it was not to be .

I sure needed some happy news today. Guess its not meant to be.....

That's the same boat we are in! I would have been 36 weeks pregnant for training and in January will have a newborn and a 20 month old.
It was also my first time applying and I am planning our first cruise so I will have a little more to add next time!

Thanks and good luck to everyone who's made it to round 2.
Congrats!

My understanding on the training: the trip is fully paid for the Panelist. Flight, lodging, and food. They do not recommend your family going because while having an amazingly good time, you are there to WORK! My understanding is that it's a pretty packed schedule and they keep you moving and learning and entertained. Your family would probably not see you much. I have heard of folks who have their families arrive on the tail end of the trip and stay after training for a little while, but not during the training itself.

HTH!

I still cant post PM as this is post 9. I made it to Round 2!!! I was in a dead zone and could just get emails. So excited! For those who did not make it, keep trying! I've applied every year and made it to round 2 the first year and this time. Here's wishing we make the cut to Round 3!

Thanks DisFan!

I have not changed anything that I know of for my login info.

I have the email, so I am not going to panic...yet...!!

I have logged in and out several times, and I still get the "cannot verify info page. "

Guess I will just wait a bit and see if I get a response from tech support.

Well the Pixie Dust is a flyin' in here! Woohoo! Congrats to those who will continue on in the journey to join the panel and BIG hugs to those who did not hear the news they so dearly hoped for today. Please do not give up on your dream. I myself, have received the dreaded "not this year" response but I picked myself up and tried again. Imagine where we'd be today if Walt Disney would have given up on his dream!?

Representing Disneyland on this year's panel has been the most amazing experience and I look forward to finding out who will be joining our family in the next few months!

As you prepare your Round 2 submissions, remember, as the Genie once said, "Beeeeee Yourself" and let that true Disney passion shine through!

Once again, many congrats and best of luck as you continue toward making your dream come true! Now go out and celebrate...but not too much... you've got videos to shoot!

-DL Mom Amanda

Question Nervous about the video!

I have the essays nailed! I have some great ideas, I just have to tweak the wording and get the words under 100! But, the video...what to wear? what background? do I want Disney stuff nearby? Timing...60 seconds is not very long! Do I do the same wording as the 5th essay, or do I change it up? I don't want to sound scripted, but I also don't want to stumble on my words. And smiling! How much is too much! Anybody have some advice or words of wisdom? oh- and I am watching the videos on the Moms Panel website of the moms giving planning advice, I thought that would help inspire me! Good luck everyone!

Moving on to round 2! Third year to get this far, but have got to figure out a way to make a stunning video. Any ideas? Because I think mine must stink!

Congrats to all moving on, and lots of love to those who aren't, I know that feeling well! My grandpa always told me " you never win if you don't play", so just keep on playing!

Pineapple! Even though I love the orange too!

Forgot to say that I am WDW, pineapple, and 2010.

Aso to the dueling memories in R2, for WDW the written is just a "disney memory", while the video is specifically a "disney parks vacation memory".

For me, cruising on the Dream this summer provides the favorite disney memory, but that won't do for the video since it is not from the parks, so mine will have to be different.

If all my memories had been from the parks, I'd probably still pick two different ones.

I made it to round two! Sixth time trying, and only made round 2 once before. PRAYING for round 3. I have the essays nailed, but I am so nervous about the video! I know I should be myself. But, what should I wear, and where should I shoot it? I thought it should be somewhere in the house where there isn't much on the walls, maybe a Disney family photo. And a simple, but tasteful, solid colored top and pants? I want them to focus on me and what I have to say, not on all the stuff on and around me? Thanks so much Amanda!

Hooray!!!! I posted right away when I found out I made it to round 2, but just realized I posted it on our first thread. So, count me in the group with those of you moving on.


I feel for those who didn't get the same email we did. Please know that all of you have been a great support for all of us here. Don't leave us! I can't wait to continue this journey with each of you!

Now, off to work on essays and video ideas. It's going to be a fun weekend!!!
I still can't believe it!
