Each year, Disney opens up applications in search for the most knowledgeable Moms, Dads, and experienced Disney Parks guests and fans from all around the world, to become part of the Disney Parks Moms Panel. And each year, thousands of eager panelist hopefuls give their best shot at becoming part of the magic!
The Moms Panel is a group of Disney experts chosen by Disney that help answer questions online for guests planning vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disney Vacation Club properties, and Disney Cruise Line.
According to Disney, “the perfect “Mom” doesn’t have to be a mom at all – our ideal panelist simply has a passion for sharing their tried and tested experiences from planning their own Disney Parks vacations.”
To be selected, potential panelists must have completed at least one visit to the Disney destination or area of expertise they are applying for within the last year for Disney World and Disneyland, and within two years for Disney Cruise Line.
Because of the unforeseen circumstances and theme park closures worldwide due to the health pandemic, this year’s search has been canceled.
Here is the announcement Disney shared in the Disney Parks Moms Panel website:
Disney Parks Moms Panel Annual Search Update
Our Disney Parks Moms Panelists are passionate about helping Guests make the most of their Disney vacation. Sharing their real experience and heartfelt advice, they help families create memories that will last a lifetime.
Each year, we search for new, enthusiastic and knowledgeable Guests to join this group of vacation planning pros. Since 2020 is unlike any year we’ve ever experienced, we are extending some of our current panelists for another year to provide stability to the program in an unstable time. As a result, we will not be seeking new panelists this fall.
We know this will be disappointing if you were planning to submit an application this year, but we are looking forward to receiving your application in the future. Until then, our current Disney Parks Moms Panelists are here and are as eager to answer your questions about your next Disney vacation as we know many of you are about returning to the magic with your family, friends and loved ones.
Make sure to visit the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news on the phased reopening of Disney Parks.
Disclosure: Search dates and eligibility requirements are subject to change without notice.

While disappointing for hopeful panelists, especially considering 2021 is the Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary and possibly the most magical yEAR to be part of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we understand why Disney had to make this decision and wish all the current and active Panelists the best moving forward into next year.
