The Road To Disney: Part 6

7 days until I leave for Florida and 12 Days until I check in for my Disney College Program! I have signed up for two classes, Exploring Disney Heritage and Exploring Guest Service. I have also completed my hire documentation which included a ton of reading that you think you wouldn’t have to do. I spent five weeks of my summer cleaning bathrooms in the morning then lifegaurding in the afternoon. I have find a quick way to do toilets. Which I hope to use while working in Disney since toilets and bathrooms are part of the job. I also took out some trash which has semi prepared me to do it in Disney. I get a cart to haul around all the trash I pick up. So I feel way more prepared after working my summer job then I did before.

Now I have to pack my clothes and make final preparations for this move as much as I can. I also have a bunch of money saved up until I get my first paycheck. I wish I could of had more but things happened and now I have less. Since I’ve gotten back to my house, my parents have let me use there money to pick up things I need and things I want.

Its Back!!!!

Star Wars weekends has returned to Hollywood Studios. It is the first weekend and some of my friends are enjoying it as we speak by getting pictures and autographs with their favorite Stars Wars characters! Also if you haven’t rode it, ride the all new Star Tours attraction. They have added more sequences to the ride so you can ride it a bunch of times without having the same story twice. If you are in the Walt Disney World neighborhood these next few weekends, stop by Hollywood Studios to celebrate Star Wars!

Every photo has a story.

There’s a lot of interest in the Disney College Program lately. Many people dream of getting jobs at Walt Disney World, and what better time than your college years, when you’re young and up for an adventure? I talked with Mouze Kateerz fan Carrie Grooms of Camillus, NY, about her experience as a Disney College Program participant. Among other things, she told me what she considers to be the greatest College Program job there is.  After she gives her reasons, and by the way, I think she’s on to something, we’ll see if you agree!

Carrie, thanks so much for giving Mouze fans some College Program info. from a real participant. To start off, where did you work during your time with the Disney Company? 

I graduated the College Program in ’92 in Magic Kingdom Custodial.  I moved on to Parking and drove trams, which actually scared me to…

The Road to Disney Part 5

Image

So I now have 82 days until I check in for my program. While some of my friends are checking in now, its makes me wish that I applied for the fall advantage program because I could be checking in relatively soon instead of in August. But I can’t change the past and I have found some really awesome women to live with for my program along with the best roommate because we have a lot in common which makes us compatible. 

I have officially graduated with a B.A. in journalism! Grades finally came out and I did better then I thought which is great. So I should have my physical degree either later this month or next month. So now all I have to do is have a great summer before I move to Florida and start my career with The Walt Disney Company. I couldn’t be more excited to start this chapter in my life.

The Road to Disney Part 4

So I just finished up my last week of classes and Monday begins my finals then I’m done on Wednesday. I have a couple days to myself before I graduate that Saturday. My boyfriend is coming down Friday and staying the night. I plan on packing up all my stuff in the car Friday night so I can have an easy graduation day and just check out that day in between my two ceremonies so I can leave after my campus wide ceremony at 1:30. Then in June I go to Laurel Mountain Christian Camp to work as Kitchen crew and Lifeguard for five weeks then its only a couple weeks after that I go to Disney and Florida permanently.

I had my boyfriend apply to The Walt Disney Company as a bus driver so that way he can have a pretty decent full time job since he doesn’t like his current jobs. He currently has three part time jobs and doesn’t make a ton of money plus these jobs are not his future careers and getting a job at Disney would be a step for his career. So hopefully we will work together while I’m in Disney.
