Panels aren't supposed to be that visible - unless you want the user to see where it is - and so it doesn't "show" in the designer, except as a dashed border. They only "disappear" completely if you try to move it outside the actual form.

There are two ways to make it more visible:
1) Give it a BorderStyle property other than "None". You (and your user) will be able to see it at all times.
2) Select it by name from the drop-down list at the top of the Properties pan. You will be able to see it (temporarily, you won't as soon as you click on anything else)

To move a panel, select it, and use the four-way arrow that appears in the top right.
