But I don't want to have the same experience (not so good,tho it was totally my fault) as last year, so... this year, I had a new plan...I just whipped out my answers, made a quick video, and sent it off. Last year I planned, typed and retyped, video'd about 20 times till I got it "right", planned out what I wore, where I was, etc. This year, it's different! My submission was completed and sent off at 4:45pm today, and I read the email at about 3:20 pm. If my passion for Disney doesn't work this year, no amount of planning will help. Good luck to you all! And for those that didn't make it, you are still amazing!
Lol, oh how I envy you! I'm going to channel some of your enthusiasm and stress a little less over this then I did last year

I am so jealous!! I would love to have mine all done. I received my congrats email, ran my sister to the emergency room, came home and am now packing to leave at 4 am for Disney World. I will probably be up all night figuring out what to take to make that video.

Hi, all,

I made it to Round 2 again this year (first time making it that far was last year). Very thrilled to get the opportunity to go further, but I know how huge the odds are to go on to Round 3, so I'm being realistic.

Congratulations to everyone else who moved forward, and lots of to those whose journey ended this afternoon. I've applied every year since the panel's inception (save for the year my son was born only a few days prior to the application), so I've definitely had far more rejection e-mails than not. Keep dreaming!!!!

Excited to read about who else will be going forward. I recognize some from last year, and some new names, too. True to my word, I didn't lurk on these threads too much this year to save my sanity - don't know if that will hold as the R2 madness begins. Although the turn-around time for submissions is quick, I'm somewhat thankful. Let's keep this ball rolling!

Pixie dust to all!

Oh, and I'm Lindsay, I applied for the WDW panel, and I'm Team Pineapple!

Well, I am not sure it is the BEST way to go about it, but I had to do what was right for me. Last year I was truly a mess, and I hated being not happy about something Disney. I almost cancelled my annual pass...well, for about 5 minutes! We should all be on the panel! Do what is best for you!

Interesting.

Does anyone know estimates on how many got through to Round 3 for the phone interviews in the past? About twice what they choose in the end, you think? Curious.

Either way, numbers aside, I'm thrilled to be one of however many they chose to move on!

Hey Lindsay, I am Allison L (Tiggsntx) and a fellow DFW area gal who also made it to Round 2. Good luck and pixie dust!

Just checked my e-mail and I'm not moving on...a little disappointed because I made it to Round 2 last year. In no way did I think it was a given to move on, especially knowing that there must be only a handful of Canadians that do...and there has normally only been one Canadian selected for the panel each year, but like everyone I was hopeful. That stated, life goes on!

Congratulations to everyone who has moved on - Good Luck with your videos and whatever comes after this...I will certainly be rooting for those of you who are in our waiting room!

The Moms Panel would be lucky to have any of you guys.

Thanks for these words...it was just what I needed to read. I'm working my way backwards in this thread (so many pages since I checked in earlier today). I knew I would see great messages of excitement and consolation and I completely agree with you on how you feel about the community. I'm not heartbroken at all (just a little sad), and I credit the great people I've interacted with here with that. I think that many of us would love to expand our online friendships with face-to-face ones...and the panel would give that plus so much more combined with the opportunity to give back.

I would have guessed way more than 200- I feel like I've seen over 200 just here on the thread this afternoon!

I'm tickled to be going on to Round 2! I feel so honored to be looked at for a 2nd time. No matter whether you are moving on this year, or are hopeful for the future... Keep celebrating our love of Disney!

Joining in!

Got my email today, my first year making it to round two!
Not sure why I made it this year, perhaps it's because I have been making annual trips for the last 3 years? Whatever the reason, it's very exciting. Now I just have to figure out how to approach the video...

Oh yes, I applied for Disneyland, and have no idea what you guys mean by pineapple and soft serve. lol
Was that a question on the WDW application?

I must say that I am truly humbled to have been chosen to go through to R2. Between the posts I'm reading here and those others on the Super Mom's FB page, I am blown away by those who I thought were shoe-ins but didn't make it. I have no idea what they're looking for and how they measure it, but I do know that when it comes to Disney passion, this group has it in spades. And that passion is only matched by the experience, knowledge and kind-heartedness that we see in every post. So for those of you who have been disappointed today, please keep the faith. No matter what color jacket we wear-- we are all true Disney Moms and Dads!
