What is the Disney Mom Panel?
The Disney Mom Panel is a group of panelist that are selected by Disney to help answer questions. Questions can be about the Disney parks, resorts, shopping, restaurants. They have multiple panelists with areas of specialty. The areas/categories are Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Vacation club, runDisney Events and Disney Cruise Line. One thing to note, The Disney Moms panel is made up of both moms and dads. They take people with a variety of backgrounds, which aids in the user experience when they ask questions. If you have questions that they can’t answer, they will have the resources to find them.

The expectations for the panelists are that they provide 10-20 written responses per week which they estimate about 20 minutes per question. This is the same as requirements for the 2018 panel. Moreover, This can be quite a bit of work for a trip to Disney, but worth it. Panelist provide their own opinions, feedback on Disney vacations and Tips. This can be as broad as which rides family members can go on to best way to have groceries delivered and everything in between.
If you are looking at giving back to the Disney community, then this would be a great opportunity. Most noteworthy, ror the participation in the mom panel, panelist are provided a trip to Disney and up to 3 family members. Which is a great bonus for helping out the Disney community.
There are thousands upon thousands of applicants for the Disney Moms Panel for a handful of spots (I believe there is 40). During the selection process there are 3 different rounds which can be nerve-wracking. It is difficult to be selected for a panelist position; however, you can reapply the following year. It is a difficult process; nevertheless, you have nothing to loss by applying. If you are one that likes to help others out, then this would be a great opportunity. Finally, for those that are applying this year, good luck!
