Have a passion for planning unforgettable Disney vacations? Know how to organize the ultimate team sports events at Walt Disney World Resort? Disney Parks today announced the 2013 Walt Disney World Moms Panel call for entries, featuring the search for its first-ever Sports Team Moms. The best draft picks for this position will have experience organizing team travel to sporting events at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex while incorporating the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Disney is also seeking bilingual panelists and international travelers to provide valuable expertise for its visitors. Visit disneymomspanelsearch2013.com through September 14 to apply.

Kicking off its sixth year, the online trip planning forum’s park-savvy super Disney fans assist guests in creating memorable Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Aulani/Adventures by Disney, Disney Vacation Club and runDisney vacations. Since 2008, millions of visitors have accessed the immense library of questions and answers that have helped our guests plan the perfect Disney vacation. Guests can also access personal tips from both panelists and celebrities alike through the dozens of videos live on the site that cover a wide-range of topics including fun and “insider” tips.

“We are excited to continue the expansion of the Moms Panel this year, adding a new Sports Team Mom specialty and bilingual panelists to our team of Disney vacation planners,” said Leanne Jakubowski, Director, Social Media; Walt Disney World Resort. “This diverse panel of Disney fans has helped countless guests turn their vacation dreams into a reality. Some families return from their trip and respond to the panelists, thanking them for the magical vacation 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 apply. I still have ‘pinch me’ moments and cannot believe I have been given this amazing opportunity.”

How to Apply

Disney Parks will accept applications for the 2013 Walt Disney World Moms Panel from 9 a.m. EDT on September 10, 2012 through September 14, 11:59 p.m. EDT., or when 14,000 applications have been received. Those interested should visit disneymomspanelsearch2013.com to enter.

About the Walt Disney World Moms Panel

The Walt Disney World Moms Panel is an online forum where guests can get tips and insights for a Disney vacation from real moms, dads and grandparents who have mastered the art of planning Disney vacations. Guests can pose questions to the panelists in both English and Spanish, as well as gain access to other vacation-planning tools for booking a Disney vacation. Featuring just 12 members during its inaugural year in 2008, the panel now boasts 40+ park-savvy panelists as a result of the popularity of the site and an ever-growing number of questions submitted by curious parents.

-- Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Offers Happy Haunts for 23 Nights --

Ghouls and goblins gather at Disney for a bewitching Halloween spooktacular during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party beginning Sept. 11 at Magic Kingdom.

A pumpkin-orange glow and light fog along with ghostly silhouettes dancing atop the roofs of Main Street, U.S.A create lots of delight and not so much fright during this family-friendly, after-hours party. Guests are invited to dress up in favorite Halloween costumes for trick or treating and more from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. for 23 select nights.

In addition to trick-or-treating, meet and greets with Disney characters donning Halloween costumes, and entertainment unique to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, many popular Magic Kingdom attractions – including, of course, The Haunted Mansion – are available to experience (but beware of hitchhiking ghosts).

Nightly entertainment features the twice nightly “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade” led by the infamous Headless Horseman, followed by “HalloWishes,” a green and orange fireworks display complete with Disney villains.

New this year: Main Street, U.S.A will be the place to be for some monstrous pre-parade entertainment, “The Not-So-Scary Street Jam!” The new activity will take place after the Headless Horseman races down Main Street, U.S.A. and before “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade” begins.

-- 17th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Dishes Excitement Sept. 28-Nov. 12 --

For a record 46 days beginning Sept. 28, Disney guests can taste their way around the world during the 17th annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival presented by Chase at Walt Disney World Resort. The culinary event, named one of the Best Food and Wine Festivals by the Travel Channel, runs through Nov. 12 and includes daily Eat to the Beat pop concerts plus one extra day of festival fun.

This year’s foodie celebration introduces a new chocolate tasting experience, fresh Florida Local flavors and the first marketplace with vegan cuisine, TERRA. The festival also introduces its first Watermelon Patch and brings back for a second year the popular “Discover the Cranberry” Bog experience and weekend HGTV celebrity home-design seminars.

Festival chefs are firing on all burners with menus designed for every palate and a new Marketplace VIP Access Chef Tour geared toward the foodie who wants the inside culinary scoop.


<< Conclusion >>

Will you answer the call of the Panel? Are you planning a trip to catch the Halloween parties and the Food & Wine Festival? We sure hope so! We'll be back in a few weeks with more reviews and tips to make a Disney vacation great on both coasts! See ya real soon!
