LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Disney “world” of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel is growing in 2012 to include not just panelists who help plan magical vacations for people heading to Walt Disney World Resort but also for folks wanting to take a Disney Cruise Line cruise, an Adventures By Disney excursion, visit Disney beach resorts or Disneyland Resort … and more.

Candidates for the panel — made up of Disney-loving guests who are the “go to” person for anymore seeking information and advice about “all things Disney” — can apply beginning Sept. 12, 2011, at 9 a.m. ET at The application period concludes Sept. 16, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Guests chosen for the panel are off-the-charts fanatics about all things Disney. They love to share what they have learned over their years of “doing Disney.” That’s why the panel was created in 2008 as an online forum of vacation advisors made up of everyday people who answer questions, offer advice and address specific concerns of families in the process of planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Five years later, the panel has become a vacation planning phenomenon.

If this application period is anything like every previous one, competition will be fierce, with applications coming from thousands of candidates all over the world. More information is available at
