    Hi Erin. Your help is invaluable, and so glad you are still part of the Panel (for a while at least). One answer mentions that Kim is now the DCL Specialist. Can you share with us which of the new Moms/Dad are the "Expert" in which category?

    Thank you so for your kind words. They mean so much to me!

    The focus of the Moms Panel is answering questions about travel to Walt Disney World in Florida. Over the course of 2008, a number of people wrote in to the Moms Panel with questions about Disney cruises and land/sea packages. Because of this demand, Disney decided to expand the scope of the Panel in 2009 to include the ability to answer questions about the Disney Cruise Line as well as Walt Disney World. 

    While many of the 2008 panelists had been on Disney cruises, Kim had by far the most DCL experience, having been on several DCL excursions recently (and she's going on another cruise in about week). This made her the perfect candidate to continue on the Panel as the DCL specialist.

    None of the other Moms/Dads on the 2008 or 2009 Panels has any special status or designated focus on the questions they will be answering. You are always welcome to direct your question to a specific Panelist based on their biographical information (found in the "Meet the Panelists" section). For example, you can find in Kay's biography that she is a grandmother. If you have a grandparents-at-Disney question, you might direct it to her. If you have teens, you might want advice from a mom of teens. If you have a special needs child, you might want advice from a special needs mom. Or you may have an affinity for someone who is from a particular geographic area.

    But really, all the Moms and Dads on the Panel are experts in the vast majority of Disney World related topics. We can all answer questions about the rides, restaurants, hotels, planning, budgeting, shopping, transportation, celebration, etc.  I think the "Niners" (as the 2008 Panel now affectionately calls the 2009 Panel) are doing a great job. I've been reading their answers right along with you and I feel confident that the Panel is in great hands.

    Happy reading!
