If you follow my blog, or watch my YouTube videos, you’d know I’ve been hinting at my new role! Better yet, if you follow me on Instagram, you already know! After spending 11 months in Disney’s Art of Animation Resort as a merchandise hostess and trainer, I’m moving on to a bigger kingdom! Drum roll please!
My new role is…………………….
Here’s a photo from my second day of training! They wanted us to see examples of magic shots. Since we were earning our ears, we were not allowed to take pictures of guests. So we got to be the models instead!
Even though I’ve been a merchandise cast member for about a year now, and that was my role as a CP, Photopass was what I had wanted ever since I applied for my college program in January of 2015. So after working through my CP, and continuing on as a seasonal cast member, I waited patiently for a transfer, hoping a spot would open up with my name on it. And lone behold, in July of 2016 it did!
As I’m writing this post, I’m currently in the midst of my training. The first day was a lot of classroom learning with a mini tour of backstage areas in Animal Kingdom. Day 2 was a touch more classroom learning, and then we were off for some touring and practice shooting of Hollywood Studios! The coming days will consist of some classes at Disney University, and then finally onto more hands-on training in my new home! The Magic Kingdom!
I’ve been waiting so long for this next chapter, andI couldn’t be more thankful for it. I felt myself falling into a rut here in Florida, and this is a very welcome and exciting change. It can be a little over-whelming at times, but I’m ready for it.
I’ll see you real soon Magic Kingdom!
