This hasn't been bumped in a while but I just had to post how much I loved this Jo. I am curious though about how you felt during the year you were a member. Was it a lot of work? Personally, I don't think I could do the trip like you had because it would devastate my son. Like serious, deep depression would result if I got to go on a trip like this and he didn't. I am so envious of your stay in the castle and would love to find some fireworks glasses with Mickey heads. Do you think they started selling them yet?:3dglasses

    Another very later reader but SOOOO enjoyed this TR! :lovestruc Your details and the pics you took are so expressive of the time you had! I would have been just like you in the Castle! Jumping on beds and taking a bzillion photos! But I would've had the same reaction you did after you had the initial OMGoodness I am in the castle!!! moment and would have thought how much my family would enjoy it too......:cloud9:
    I am considering applying this year and am a bit daunted by the 20,000 applicants! :eek: I know that everyone here is probably the most devoted Disneyphile in their circle of friends and family-I am! But how did you manage to convey that to the Moms Panel?
    Thank you for your report! It was Magical!! :flower3:

    The chocolate horse and carriage is beautiful - looked too good to eat (well almost!) Certainly a memorable trip when you were treat like a star :)
    I had a great time thanks although it was so long ago now I still have very fond memories :goodvibes

    Hi Carla :wave2: I loved my year and really enjoyed helping lots of people, I answered 1,200 questions so hope I helped lots of guests :goodvibes I don't think they ever sold the glasses though :sad2:

    Sorry for the very late reply, did you ever apply? I think my year was much easier as there wasn't very much social media about and we had no idea what to expect so we all just answered the questions straight from the heart. Good luck :thumbsup2

    Love this report! Great job!!!
    Thanks :love:

    Hey Jo! I don't know why I haven't read your report before now. Blame it on...blame it on....hum, I don't really have an excuse. :rotfl: I sat and read every single bit of the report and loved it. It sounds as if the trip was magical from the minute you arrived until the minute you left. Disney really knows how to treat a Disney Mom!

    Hi, I am jumping over from Em's report. Not sure when I will start reading. I told myself I have to many threads I am trying to read that I am not suppose to start any new reports, but couldn't resist reading about someone who sat on the Cindy's loo. Can't wait to read about your trip.

    Wow, just WOW! I am so happy I came across this trip report. What an amazing experience for you. I am totally going to apply for the mom's panel next year. How did you enjoy once you went live?

    I'm so pleased you enjoyed it, I was so lucky to experience lots of once in a lifetime treats.

    I remember being incredibly anxious, excited and impatient regarding going live on the panel :rotfl2: It's such a nice feeling knowing you're helping bring some magic to other peoples vacations :)

    In the past the Moms Panel search has taken place in September so be sure to keep an eye on the website then. Good luck :goodvibes

    I will keep my eye on the website for sure. Thanks so much. :) Have you ever thought of being a Cultural Representative for the UK at Epcot? I would love to do that, but for Canada. Maybe once the kids are older. :)

    Sorry my message above sent too soon! As I was saying...

    I really enjoyed your report (even though I am a tad late though!) it has totally inspired me to apply for next year. I had heard about the panel before but had not thought people from the uk could apply so that is totally cool. Will probably never happen but hey you never know if you don't try.

    Thanks for the inspiration!!
