According to recent, multiple service mark applications, the Disney Parks Insidears website will feature advice and information, news and commentary in the field of travel as well as the field of entertainment. Sound familiar? Except this time, the advice will evidently come directly from the source (or the Moms Panel could simply be facing a name change, but that makes for less of an interesting story, n’est-ce pas?)
