Disney Parks Moms Panel: What It is and Why You Need ItPilar Clark
The newly renamed Disney Parks Moms Panel – otherwise known as the best, free (!) vacation planning resource on the internets – is an online forum where guests can get all kinds of Disney info from real moms, dads (don’t let the Panel’s name fool you), and grandparents who have mastered the art of planning Disney vacations.
Need to know if almond milk is available at the parks? Want to know how a few crazy lucky guests get to spend the night in Cinderella’s Castle? Done and done.
All you have to do is head to www.DisneyParksMomsPanel.com, and ask a question in English or Spanish – multilingual panelists are an exciting new addition to the group – and, while you’re on the site, you’ll get access to other free planning tools for booking a Disney vacation. Browse answers to previously asked questions too, and check out helpful video how-tos.
“The Moms Panelists have been giving trip planning advice and opinions on the entire suite of Disney Parks vacations for a while now,” says Jackie Gailey, Walt Disney World Moms Panelist. “In 2008, the inaugural panel only discussed Walt Disney World vacations.”
A little backstory. Surprisingly, there were just 12 members during the Panel’s inaugural year in 2008. There are now 47 panelists as a result of the popularity of the site and an ever-growing number of questions submitted by Disney enthusiasts.
Disney also announced the Panel’s 19 newest members today, with two Team Sports Moms among them. They’ll help guests with youth sports-related travel to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
And, whether guests are looking to find the best character dining experience, run through the parks with runDisney, or discover the world with Adventures by Disney, there is a panelist who can share opinions, tips and advice on almost anything.
That’s code for don’t be shy.
The new panel will be joined by select alumni panelists representing all previous panels to help answer mabillions of Disney vacation questions submitted to the site each week.
What’s more, Disney plans to pixie dust the Moms Panel website later in 2013. More benefits to you will be added blog content and mobile friendly options.
