Yup, that's me... your personal tour guide...

So, my non-Disney Geek friends and relatives... you've been asking:
"Just what is this Disney Moms Panel thing anyways??!?"
 Well, let me try to explain...

In today's world, with so little time to spend dedicated to being a family, those two weeks of vacation time per year are priceless - you really want to seize the opportunity to make it the best it can be! Not only that, but any vacation is a big investment of time and money (at least it is in our house)!

So, what do you do? You've decided you want to go to Disney World to experience a little of that special Magic. Well, if you're like me, you start to plan. Where to stay? Where to eat? How do we get from the airport to the hotel?? The list goes on ... and on...

Guide books are great. They give you a wonderful overview of what rides are in each park, what resorts are available to you. In fact, they've been around since just a few years after Disney World opened...


(Dallas Morning News 7/9/1978)

Disney World guidebooks still exist today. In fact, if you do a search on Amazon, you'll be able to choose from 27 different 2010 books. But, as great as those books are, sometimes they just aren't personalized enough. Maybe they don't answer the questions you have...

Maybe you need to know how to get around - I mean, the sheer size of WDW can be daunting! Its bigger than Manhattan, nearly 47 acres, 20+ hotel choices, and I'm not even going to attempt to count all the places to eat!

Speaking of eating, maybe you are a vegetarian, and need to know where to grab a snack or light meal in the Magic Kingdom - sure, you could scour the books, hoping to find out where to go or what to look for ... But, in this online world of ours.. there is an easier way. Yup, you guessed it! Thats where the Disney World Moms Panel comes in.

At www.disneyworldmoms.com you can submit your question and an amazing group of Moms & Dads will answer it. Specific advice given to you and your situation. They've been there. They've done it.

AND they are free to give you their best advice - honest advice. You see, the answers aren't required to give you a company line or to push you to spend more money. In fact, the Moms & Dads aren't employed by Disney. They are volunteers of sorts... sure they may get a reward for helping out... maybe a Trip to WDW or something similar.. but that's it.  So, if they don't think that a resort or restaurant fits your family - they'll tell you. Yup. Seriously.

So, next year that will be me! That's what I'll be doing... I'll be helping real folks, with real questions... giving real answers... Sort of a personal guide to the place I love so much...
