You don't! That's why all the Panelists and past Panelists say to be yourself. That's all you can do

I am so excited to be a first year applicant! I'm a first year WDW Disney Moms panel applicant (I've wanted to for a while, but hadn't personally gotten to go to the World since my honeymoon) and didn't figure out if cruising DCL "counted" if you applied as a cruise specialty panelist until after the due date last September.

We enjoyed three lovely cruises out of Galveston over this last season (one an eight night with a stop at WDW for a day!) and I am so excited to be joining the WDW Moms Panel search!

I'm back too!

After spending a couple of years being pretty active on these pages, I became more of a part-time lurker last year and it turns out that I missed you guys! I may not be very vocal but I'll be checking in on everyone just the same. Sometimes it's just so stinkin' hard to keep up when you log off for a day and 10 pages have been added! I love the support and encouragement here and I'm gonna need it! This will be my fifth application process!

When are the applications being taken? I looked on the board, but didn't see a date, just that it's coming. Admittedly, I looked really quickly, lol.

No specific information has been released yet. We all get a little antsy well in advance! In the past, the process has begun during the second week of September (or around there).

What are the qualifications? Must you have visited WDW within the past year? What about Disneyland or DCL? Does anyone have any of those guidelines?

Previously, it's been a trip within the last calendar year.
The qualifications aren't published yet.
The teaser says "you and your family" must have "experienced numerous Disney Parks vacations" as well as considering "yourself a 'go-to' person who is always on the lookout to help a friend plan a magical Disney vacation."

Hope that helps!

In the past, they have required you to have traveled to the Disney Parks (WDW or DLR, depending on your specialty) within the last 12 months from when the application process begins (September).

I'm sure I will be lurker on this thread again. I'm hoping 4th application is the charm?

I'm so thankful that our 8 night cruise last April included a stop at Port Canaveral for a Disney day! We managed to take the two kiddos for their first trip to the world, hit three out of the four parks and enjoy all of the wonder of that experience without sacrificing or substituting our first love, Disney cruising!
It was indescribably magical.
Keep dreaming those pixie dust dreams, moms panel applicants!
After all, a dream that you wish...
