Disney Parks, Experiences and Products is looking for experienced Disney Parks guests to apply for a chance to become a 2022 planDisney Panelist.

planDisney is an online question-and-answer forum for planning Disney vacations. For more than 13 years, thousands of hopeful candidates apply annually to become part of this diverse panel to help future guests plan their most magical Disney getaways. This year, the application window opens Thursday, Sept. 9, at noon EDT and runs through Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021, at noon EDT. Apply online at planDisneySearch.com.

Formerly known as Disney Parks Moms Panel, planDisney launched in 2008. planDisney Panelists are actual guests, not Cast Members or Disney representatives, and they provide tips and recommendations based on their experiences at Disney destinations.

"There is so much Disney to see and do that it’s tough to experience everything in a single visit. But what if you had a trusted friend who has experienced everything already? Wouldn't it be great to get their advice," said Jerry M., one of the dads on the 2020 planDisney panel. "The magic of the planDisney Panel is our collective experience and our diverse backgrounds. Taken together, we've just about done it all – and like your best friend, we want to see you enjoy yourself."
