I caved. Disney Moms Panel Application Complete

Screen grab of my Confirmation page

Alright, yes, I am weak. I hereby acknowledge that I am a weak person. After going on and on to myself and any of my followers who care to read my twitter feed yesterday, that I was not going to apply to the Disney Mom’s Panel, I gave in an quickly applied this morning. I know I have no hope of getting chosen. They allow you 100 characters to tell them how much you love the Disney theme parks. What can they get from 100 words for goodness sake? I am resigned to being a Disney Mom’s panelist for my friends and family and never one for The Mouse itself. So, why did I apply?

First, I followed a link from the disney themed blog Chip n Company on their facebook page, to the Mom’s panel application page. Disney opened the applications up yesterday, September 12th, and will be closing them on September 16th or when they reach 20,000 applicants, whichever comes first. I deliberately stayed away all of yesterday, on purpose and because I was extremely busy, so I figured that they’d have reached that 20,000 by now for sure.

Nope.

When I logged into my disney account, the mom’s panel application boxes came up and I was invited to apply. I guess that’s what made my decision. It wasn’t yet closed, so perhaps it was a sign that I should set aside my negative feelings and just fill in those little boxes.

Even if I am not chosen (which I won’t be), I love Walt Disney World. The hubby and I have taken our kids their every year of their lives (sometimes twice) and everything about the magic of WDW is a part of me. I love the pixie dust, the attention to detail, and the way that being there makes you want to be nice and kind and spread the magic yourself. If I never win anything Disney I will still be my local WDW expert and disney nerd. I will still go to the parks once a year, at least. I will still love hanging out and looking at all the tiny touches the imagineers have put into this or that attraction or land. All of this because the Disney magic speaks to me. I get it. I can’t help it.

I am weak? Maybe, I am just full of Pixie Dust.

RSM.
