This is the photo taken of the 2009 Walt Disney World Moms Panel during our training weekend. It was and always will be one of the most amazing times of my life.
I know there are many of you who are disappointed that you haven’t gotten the coveted round 2 e-mail today, and I wanted you to know that it doesn’t mean you don’t have the magic required. There were so many people who helped me gain the knowledge I have of Walt Disney World, and many of them have applied year after year for the panel without success. You are all equally as qualified as each one of us standing in that photo. Sometimes, though, that pixie dust gets caught in a gust of wind and lands where it may. Next year, I hope the wind is blowing ever so slightly in your direction!
For those of you who are celebrating – and nervous – CONGRATULATIONS!! I know what it’s like to be in your shoes (although I have to tell you, when I got my round 2 notice, I was wearing knock off Ugg boots from Target – you probably have better taste in footwear!) . You’re probably a bundle of nerves and a barrel of excitement – and it’s all good!
Best wishes as you move on in answering the next round of questions and recording that video message that will let the folks at Disney see the real you shining through! If I can be of any help with words of encouragement, you certainly know where to find me.
