The first thing I read in my blog reader: It's almost time for the 2011 Moms panel search! A few years ago, I passed a minivan driving around Ashburn (my home turf) with a WDW license plate and a magnet saying "WDW MOM." I thought "oooh I want to be a WDW mom one day!" I didn't even know what that meant at the time, but I liked the idea of being a Mom that loves Disney. Though I'm the self-appointed WDW NCOIC (for those of you not familiar with all of our acronyms, that's the Walt Disney World Non-Commissioned Officer In Charge) at work and really enjoy blogging, I love the idea of being "official."
Now, after much research and time spent online, I've learned that the Moms Panel is a hand selected group of people with a ridiculous amount of knowledge about Walt Disney World. Everyone has their own niche, some know more about fine dining, while others will know about the resorts. I'm not quite sure where my niche would be - probably somewhere along the lines of Disney with a baby? Hey, I've only been once with the baby, but I feel like a pro! Or, I have much knowledge about doing the parks in a day. I've "done" the parks dozens of times in a day. Somehow, with the help of friends, I've conquered all the big rides and pretty much everything else easily in jam-packed and fun-filled days.
I definitely think that Moms Panel needs more info about doing the parks with babies. Before our trip, I researched everywhere and even the Moms Panel didn't have much information about taking babies. There were lots of questions and answers about babies tagging along with the older siblings, but so little to encourage parents of infants.
That's where we will come in. Take your babies! It's free for them and as a parent of an infant, we need some fun and relaxation and there is almost nothing better for that than a good WDW vacation. Think that's a good motto?
Well, I've got some time to work on it.
Let me know what you think!
