It’s almost time again! The Disney Parks Moms Panel search will begin this year on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 and if you’re not sure whether to apply or not, you’re not alone. I’m having the same struggle and am still undecided, but it’s like that for me every year. Yes, I’ve applied more than one time before. So far, I’ve only made it to Round 2 in the selection process, which is probably all the more reason I should apply again this year, right? If you’re not sure what exactly the Disney Parks Moms Panel is, let me fill you in a little bit. The Disney Parks Moms Panel search is an annual selection process, originating back in 2008, where Disney searches for new moms, dads, grandparents and other family members to join this group which serves as an online resource for Disney guests. The panel is hand-picked, diverse and knowledgeable and each member exudes a passion for Disney and has a love of helping others plan the ultimate Disney family vacation of their dreams with helpful tips and heartfelt advice about Disney. Whether guests have a question about a theme park, restaurant, service, shop, hotel or activity, the Moms Panel is there to help with that planning.
Each of the chosen panelists specializes in one of these categories:
- Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
- Disneyland Resort in California
- runDisney events
- Disney Vacation Club
- Disney Cruise Line
Applications for the 2019 Disney Parks Moms Panel search will open at noon EDT on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 and round one closes at noon EDT on Wednesday, September 12, 2018.

I think the fact that you’re here reading this blog post is already a sign that you should. I’ve met a few of the past and present Disney Parks Moms Panelists and if you ask any of them, they will always tell you to go for it! I mean, what do you have to lose?In case you’re still not sure if you should, I put together a fun list of “10 Signs Telling You to Apply For the Disney Parks Moms Panel This Year”.If you can relate to any (or all) of these things, I think you need to apply this year! Here they are:
- You love Disney.
- You see “Hidden Mickeys” everywhere you go
- When you’re out shopping you spot things, like outfits, that would “be perfect for your next Disney trip”
- You have a pet with a Disney-inspired name
- You prefer Mickey-shaped foods.

- You have a “Disney Bucket List” somewhere.
- You know what Club 33 is.
