LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Disney Parks calls upon passionate Disney fans and seasoned trip planners dedicated to helping others create magical vacation memories to apply for a spot on the 2016 Disney Parks Mom Panel.

This year, Disney seeks bilingual panelists and savvy world travelers to share their valuable expertise with its visitors. Candidates can apply now through September 15 by visiting www.momspanelsearch.com.
Since its inception in 2008, the panel has grown to include a variety of enthusiastic and diverse Disney-loving experts, composed of moms, dads, grandparents, and even aunts.

“We are so encouraged by the excitement that surrounds our annual Disney Parks Moms Panel search and each year seek new ways to evolve and adapt it to best accommodate the needs of our culturally-diverse visitors,” said Leanne O’Regan, Director of Social Media for Disney Parks. “With the addition of more bilingual panelists, we hope to expand the panel’s appeal and influence further by lending fresh insights and unique perspectives in an engaging forum.”
In addition to being deeply knowledgeable and well-versed in all things Disney, the panelists always aim to keep communications with guests upbeat and personable, making for an efficient and fun trip planning experience from start to finish.
