Disney Moms Panel Monday – Ari

Straight from my heart – A glimpse into what makes my fellow Panelists so very precious to me.

The Walt Disney World Moms Panel welcomed 15 new Panelists in 2012. Among those were 2 Disney Vacation Club Specialists, 1 Adventures by Disney Panelist and 1 Disney Cruise Line Mom. In addition, for the first time ever, runDisney added a Specialist and Disneyland added 2 Panelists. Ari, will forever hold the title of the first Dad chosen to represent Disneyland on the Panel.

Ari and his family call southern California home. He and his wife are raising 2 beautiful princesses and they thoroughly enjoy making memories at Disneyland together as often as possible.

When I first arrived at the BoardWalk Inn last December to welcome the new Panelists, Sue, Ari and Amanda F were already there. Along with Marisol, Leslie and Deborah, we spent some time getting to know each other as we waited for more new family members to arrive.

Here we are at the BoardWalk Concierge check-in desk…

Soon we were back down in the lobby where Bernie was waiting and we all welcomed Scott as well.

For lunch, we walked over to Captain’s Grille. Ari jumped right in and helped push the stroller for Leslie. 🙂

The next morning, we met up with some of the new Panelists briefly on Main Street. We snapped this photo of 4 of the Disney Dads – Ari, Chris, Scott and Doug.

Later that evening, Laura hosted a Cocktail Party for all of the Panelists. Marc took this photo of Ari and Ashley on the way over there.

We all had a wonderful time that evening. It was awesome to have 5 out of our 12 Disney Dads in attendance.

Ari has been an attorney in California for over a decade. He enjoys watching sports, and is a big fan of the Raiders.

We have some incredible Dad’s on the Moms Panel and Ari is certainly one of them. While I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with him last December, I am really looking forward to seeing him at the Moms Panel Reunion Weekend this September. I knew within moments of meeting Ari that he brings a fantastic sense of humor and a wealth of Disneyland knowledge to the Panel. If you are planning a vacation to Disneyland, be sure to stop by and ask Ari a question, he would love to help you plan your magical trip!
