What exactly is planDisney? It’s a group of passionate and knowledgeable Disney Guests who share their insight on travel and Disney vacations on planDisney.com.  The application process consists of three rounds. First, you answer a series of short questions, then submit a video and, if selected, have a virtual interview.

“I like to think of planDisney as an online representation of the diverse people and families who come to Disney Destinations worldwide through its Panelists,” explains planDisney Panelist Prince. “Each day we research and share our experiences to make sure folks find the answers they’re looking for before they embark on their Disney adventures!”

What Does it Require?

The role of a planDisney panelist requires you to dedicate a certain amount of time each week to answer questions from a future Disney Guest planning an upcoming Disney vacation. This work is done remotely from the comfort of your home – and all you need to do is meet a weekly quota.

“My favorite part of being a planDisney Panelist is getting to share my Disney experiences with Guests in the same way I share my tips with my family and friends,” says Keri. “I love when I discover a fun tip or new experience on my own vacation and have a question that directly relates to that experience.”

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
