they had a hand in creating. Many of our panelists feel it is an
honor to assist travelers from all over the globe in making memories
that will last a lifetime.”
“For the past two years I have been blessed with the opportunity to
share my love and appreciation for the most ‘Magical Place on Earth’
as a member of the Moms Panel,” said Marisol Lopez, bilingual
panelist and Disney Cruise Line specialist. “Disney has provided my
family with countless pixie-dusted moments we will never forget. I
literally become emotional as I write my answers because I feel as
if I am planning a trip for my family for each guest. Fun does not
even describe it. It has truly been a life-changing experience for
me. I encourage anyone who wants to share their Disney passion to

been given this amazing opportunity.”
