LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Jan. 9, 2018 – With January kicking off a busy vacation planning season, Disney Parks today announced its new class of panelists joining the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The 11 new panelists, carefully selected from thousands of applicants to provide honest and relatable vacation tips, are committed to making the planning process easier by offering personalized guidance to help turn dream Disney vacations into a reality.
The Disney Parks Moms Panel is an online resource for individuals thinking about planning a Disney vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line or with Disney Vacation Club. The panelists leverage their vast experiences from their own Disney vacations to provide authentic answers to guests seeking advice – whether for an entire family vacation or for guests traveling without kids.
“The magic of the Moms Panel is our collective experience and our diverse backgrounds,” said Jerry M., one of the Disney Dads on the 2018 Disney Parks Moms Panel. “There is so much Disney to see and do that it’s tough to experience everything in a single visit. But what if you had a trusted friend who in fact did experience everything? Wouldn’t it be great to get their advice? That’s the magic of the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Taken together we’ve just about done it all. And like your best friend, we want to see you enjoy yourself.”
