Walt Disney said that, boy was he right! I thought it would be impossible to work at The Happiest Place on Earth, but I was wrong. And golly, is it fun.
So, last we chatted I was about to take my PA I think.
Well, I passed! Woohoo! I am now qualified to push buttons!
Just kidding. There is a lot more to it than that.
I have been operating by myself for a few days now. The first day was TERRIFYING but everyone was very kind and helpful.
And so now I just continue on as a regular cast member.
I started my Disney class, Marketing You, this week.
Disneyland college programers are required to take at least one Disney class. I am taking Marketing You and Leadership Speakers Series (starting next week).
Marketing You is all about networking and promoting your self brand. I’m really excited to see what will come of this class and if it will help me set a more concrete plan for my future.
We took one of those aptitude tests for class–the ones that tell you what job you should consider. My top 5 were all things I have considered:
1)Performing arts–acting, singing, directing, PR (my major!)
2)Creative arts–investigative reporter, film/TV director, newspaper editor
3)Behavioral sciences–psychologist, sociologist (if you look at earlier blog posts, you will see I considered minoring in sociology for a while), linguist
4)Hospitality–Hotel manager, event planner
5)Visual arts–interior design, set designer, illustrator
Right, those all make sense. However, if all else fails, I have my top 6 choice.
6) Transportation. Including, but not limited to: truck driver, airline pilot, sailor, helicopter pilot, bus driver, taxi driver.
I think it’s funny, but it is probably because I want to travel. Oh well, it’s nice to have a solid backup plan. And besides, I would look AWESOME in a trucker hat.
So, needless to say I am excited to plan and see what my future brings.
And now it’s time for…
Cute/awesome/funny moments in Disneyland so far–
–Rupert Grint (aka Ron Weasley) and Tom Felton (aka Draco Malfoy) were in my jeep the other day. Tom smiled at me. We’re in love. It’s no big deal.
–A little girl asked me to sign her autograph book.
Oh, the feels.
–I tried to give a button to a guy who rode Indiana Jones 30 times in a row. It said “I’m celebrating riding Indy 30x.” He rejected it.
So there you have it. That’s all I can think of at the moment. I start work in about 6 hours which will be awesome and I have friends and family coming to visit in the next two weeks! WEEEEEE!
Now for the pictures:
I will try to add more, soon!
Words for the day: If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.
