The day I came back from my Disney Vacation with my husband and toddler, I got this email. (Ironic, isn’t it.)
Yup. Rejected. Again.
This is the third time I have applied. I am not sure what I am saying (or not saying) that is not getting me to the next round, but I have to say, it stings.
While some local bloggers have stated that I am not a ‘big’ enough blogger to merit the attention from the likes of Disney, I thought it was more about my knowledge of Disney. Not sure what is the percentage of Disney Panel applicants that have been to Disney more than 30 times, have done every Disney tour possible and have even run 26.2 miles on Disney property, but I even took a trip with my 23 month old to keep up with the Disney happenings as it pertains to young children: took the time to talk to cast members, chatted with other Moms at the water parks or in the rider swap lines. So to say I was serious about my application? Totally.
So once again, the opportunity passes me by, and my hopes for getting an invitation to the Disney Social Moms Conference diminishes too. Though I did get an invite to attend the first Disney Social Media Moms conference, I was still post-partum and wasn’t cleared to fly. But the same blogging community also said that other ‘bigger’ bloggers’ should get invites before me to that event too.
So while I am not an official Disney Mom anything, I do know a lot and will be sharing my recent Disney experience with you all. I suppose this way I can be brutally honest and give you the good and bad of Disney based on my 30+ years of Disney experience. So stay tuned for some funny (and real) Disney Mom posts. Even if I am not a ‘big blogger’ or an ‘official’ Disney Mom.
So later gators – I’m off to look into a Disney Cruise….
