Calling All Walt Disney World Vacation 'Know-It-Alls': The Mouse Searching for 16 Parents for 2009 Moms Panel

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - Disney Parks announces its search
for a group of park-savvy parents to be named the 2009 Walt Disney World Moms
Panel, following in the footsteps of the first-ever online Walt Disney World
Moms Panel which has been fielding and answering thousands of vacation
questions in 2008.
    The quest is for 16 parents who pride themselves on being Walt Disney
World "know-it-alls" and have an undying passion to share their Disney
knowledge with others at From now through Sept. 19,
interested applicants can visit to apply for the
panel. The application process begins with a series of questions and three
brief essays - about their family, why they are a great Walt Disney World
vacation planner and their favourite Disney vacationing tip.
    "The first-ever Disney Moms Panel has responded to more than 9,000
questions from vacation planners this year. They have offered our guests
countless tips to plan a magical vacation at our resort," said Meg Crofton,
president of Walt Disney World Resort. "We thank the 2008 panel for their
contributions and look forward to working with a new group of parents."
    Since the launch of in January 2008, the current
12-person panel has responded to questions covering just about anything from
how to sign up for a character dining experience to what items are allowed in
the parks. In exchange for serving up their Disney expertise online in 2009,
the expanded, 16-person panel will each receive a 5-night, 6-day vacation at
Walt Disney World Resort for four people.
    "For me, being on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel is all about helping
other people make their dream vacations become a reality and to make it as
stress free as possible," said Brigitta Noer, a panellist and mother from
Nanoose Bay, British Columbia.
