Tampa, Florida - So you're planning a Disney vacation and it all seems a bit overwhelming. Disney has expanded a panel of experts; moms who know how to get the most out of the Disney experience and some are from the Tampa Bay area.
Deborah Bowen is an English and communications professor at USF. She holds a Ph.D. and now the mother of two young boys -- 7-year-old Benjamin and 6-year-old Frederick -- holds a new position. She sits on Disney's Moms Panel.
"The people run the course... attorneys, university professors, beauty coaches, stay at home moms. There's no such thing as the typical Disney mom," says Bowen.
All 45 members share one thing: a love for all that's Disney.
Bowen says, "I can't articulate what it is. It's a feeling, nostalgia, warmth, that everybody who loves Disney gets."
