Disney College Program: Excitement Abounds!

Only seven days until I depart my hometown. Eleven more days until check-in!

What is my life?!

I’ve decided to document the things I am most excited about here on my trusty little blog. I’ve been stalking the #DCPspring2016 hashtag on Instagram while subsequently getting little butterflies. Two groups have checked in for spring, and I believe there are three more to go.

It’s almost my turn! How does the song go?

“Look at the world, so close, and I’m halfway to it. Look at it all, so big, do I even dare?” {Rapunzel from Tangled}.

Oh. I dare.

Here is what I’m most excited about for the Disney College Program:

  • Finding out my work location! I cannot tell you how anxious I am to know where I get to work for the next six months. My role is a global position, but I’m so excited to call one park truly “home.”
  • Seeing the “Symphony in the Stars” fireworks at Hollywood Studios. I’m a newly-minted Star Wars freak, so I am so pumped to see this show.
  • Meeting the Star Wars characters for the first time.
  • Walking down Main Street as a cast member for the very first time.
  • Seeing the Castle as a cast member for the very first time. There will be happy tears, I guarantee you.
  • Traditions! I’m so excited for the official initiation to the Walt Disney Company.
  • Meeting characters I haven’t ever met: Tarzan, Baymax, and the Mad Hatter to name a few.
  • Creating my first “magical moment.”
  • Memorizing the words to “Dream Along With Mickey.” This was the show that really introduced me to Disney magic, so I know I’m going to be a die-hard fan girl and see it an innumerable amount of times.
  • Character dining–I want to eat at all the places and meet all the characters.
  • Receiving my name tag. Goosebumps.
  • Meeting my roommates and knowing which complex I am going to be living in. I’m going in “random,” so I do not know who I will be living with yet. It’s going to be exciting, I tell you!
  • Meeting the boss–aka Mickey Mouse–for the first time as a cast member. I can’t wait to give you a big hug, Mickey.
  • Going to the water parks. I’ve never been, so I can’t wait to give them try.
  • Experiencing Disney magic each and every day.

As this week goes by, I’ll have nervous/excited butterflies in my stomach, Disney song lyrics on repeat in my head, my puppies on my heels as I pack, wondering why I’m moving all my stuff.

I’m sorry, puppies. I’m going on an adventure! “Adventure is out there!” 

“I can go the distance!”

“I’m almost there!” 

“Tell everybody I’m on my way; new friends and new places to see. With blue skies ahead, yes, I’m on my way. And there’s no where else that I’d rather be!” 

You get the point.

I hope you have a magical day, with “blue skies and sunshine, guaranteed.” 

Ok, enough with the Disney song snippets. I’ve got some packing to do.

  1. HAVE AN AWESOME AND AMAZING TIME! I am so insanely jealous, seeing as I just finished up my Disney College Program earlier this month. It is the most amazing experience in the entire world, and I loved every minute of it. Take every minute in, because I promise you it will fly by. I cannot wait to read about your journey and live vicariously through you! 🙂
