An Interesting Adventure Comes to an End

I've kept quiet about this, but I applied for the 2012 Walt Disney World Moms Panel for runDisney.  I made it through to Round 2 and just received the email that my journey is over and I didn't make it to Round 3.

Honestly, I think deep down I knew that I wouldn't make it.  It is still disappointing as I do love runDisney and having completed 17 runDisney races I feel like I have good advice to give to people.  Not to mention that I'll be doing pretty much all of the races in 2012 :).

I wish all those progressing to Round 3 good luck and can't wait to see who makes the final cut.

A little bit about the journey.  I applied for the panel and basically forgot about it until I received an email the day before I was leaving for a business trip.  Great, now I have made it to Round 2 and I was excited, but it also meant I'd have to do a video and answer the questions from a hotel room in order to submit everything on time.

I can tell you that these were not ideal surroundings to try to do a video showing your passion for runDisney.  I improvised as well as I could, but I know my video wasn't perfect.

It has been stressful waiting and wondering if I'd make it through to the next round and when the email came in tonight it was a bit deceiving in its wording...at first it makes you think you made it, until you read further.

The subject line read...You Are One Of The Very Few Who Made It This Far!

The body of the email said...
On behalf of Disney Destinations, LLC, thank you for applying for the 2012 Walt Disney World® Moms Panel!  Your application showed us the inspiring role Disney plays in your life.

We hope you will visit the site regularly and wish that you will consider reapplying for the 2013 panel!  Once again, we sincerely thank you for your application. 
Magically yours,

Not sure if I will apply again next year, I guess only time will tell...I really don't know that I could or would have changed anything I wrote and/or said in my answers and video.  If it wasn't good enough this year, I don't see how it could be good enough next year.

Congrats on making it past the first round! I've thought about applying, but haven't yet. You're one step ahead of me! I'm not sure what I have to offer that is unique, but I guess you never know unless you try, right?
