November in a Nutshell

Hey there friends!

This is a super delayed post and I apologize, but the end of November/beginning of December was super busy! I still wanna get this up before December is over, because I know it's nearly January already lol. So without any further ado, here is my November in Disney!

I can't believe November is already over and long gone. I only have a few days left of my college program. Things are getting real! I am trying to do as much as possible, all while still getting a decent amount of sleep. I have finally settled in here, and by settled, I mean I am comfortable at work, I have found great friends, and I am used to the idea of living here away from my family and friends. 

Let's take a peek at all I've been up to in November!

There's So Much to be Thankful For

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but this year will obviously be really different. Rather than spending it watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning and then enjoying a delicious feast with my big family later in the day, I'll be working at Magic Kingdom, serving guests and making their Thanksgiving a magical one. As much as I would rather be back at home with my loved ones for the day, I have come to realize since I've been apart from them that I've been blessed with so much.

This year, I am extremely grateful for so many things. I have been given the opportunity of a lifetime by working for the Walt Disney Company. But there's so much more to it than that. Since I've been here, I've been able to think deeply about all that's happened since I've moved away and all the changes I've gone through, and realized how it is shaping me as a person. 

I'm so thankful for my family, especially my parents. They have been extremely supportive of my dreams to do the college program, even if it meant that I had to take a semester off of school and wouldn't be able to spend the holidays with them. I'm also really fortunate that they will be coming to visit me at such a special time at Disney. Not everyone's parents have been as supportive of their kids' dreams. My family has been there for me through all my emotions while I've been away (me being the dramatic girl I am, they've dealt with a LOT of emotions hehehe), about being homesick and other obstacles I've faced during my program. Without their endless support, I'm not sure how I could've dealt with everything properly. 

I'm thankful for all of my friends back home. Thank you guys for doing your absolute best to stay in touch despite all of our busy schedules. At this point in our lives, now that the majority of us are done with undergrad (except for me, womp womp), it's really hard to stay in touch with people. People are going in different directions, traveling down new paths, which often means leaving the past behind them and going forward to fulfill their needs. Despite doing their own thing, I'll always be grateful that I've been able to stay in touch with all my friends back home, and blessed to be surrounded by those that have been so graciously loving and understanding during my hard times, and endlessly happy for me as I live my dream.

I'm thankful for all my friends here at Disney, and my amazing co-workers. The people that I'm friends with here are experiencing this magical life with me (and sometimes not so magical) and I'm happy I have great people to share these memories with. I'm really thankful to have people to relate to about all the things we are going through on my program, and also especially thankful that I have people I can dork out about Disney with and they actually understand! haha. Without the friends I've made here, my program certainly wouldn't be as special. 

Lastly, I am thankful for the opportunity to work at Disney, even if it's just for a semester. I'm living out my dream and it all still feels like a fantasy. I may complain a lot about the weather and talk about how badly I can't wait to go home, but I will always and forevermore be thankful to be here. The experiences I've had here are memories I will always carry in my heart, the lessons I've learned will allow me to grow as a person, and the magic I'm surrounded by each day will live on with me. 

Although I can't be with my family this year on this holiday, I'm sure that it will still be a good one. 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! 

Love, Lindsey

October in Disney

Oh, autumn. One of my favorite times of the year. I love the crisp feeling in the air when the weather finally starts to cool down, watching the leaves change from green to orange, yellow, and red, going on hayrides with my friends, preparing for Halloween by decorating, getting costumes together and watching Halloween movies, and finally getting to wear leggings and boots. What's not to love about autumn?

This year was kind of different if you ask me. I still got to celebrate Halloween by watching movies, eating candy, and (kind of) dressing up. But the humidity and high temperatures didn't make it feel like it was October! In fact, in my mind, it still seems like summer, except stores are starting to sell seasonal items and Magic Kingdom is decorated for Halloween.

Here is how I got to celebrate the fall down here in Florida!

Dealing with Homesickness

Woah, I'm posting something within the same week of another post? Crazy right?! I actually had a day shift today, so I have the night off and I'm taking the time to do some laundry and getting my life together.

Like I've said before, life in Florida is pretty great. It still feels like summer because I'm not taking any classes and the weather is still warm. I have the opportunity to play in the parks whenever I want. I get to live on my own. I'm meeting so many new people. The list could go on and on about how awesome things are here!

However, life here is also really bittersweet. I'm having a great time here, but I also get hit with waves of homesickness. Not everyday, but there are days when I wake up and just feel sad.

Alright, alright. I'm being a tad bit over dramatic here, especially with the sad little Stitch gif. I live in Disney World! But I am a really big homebody--I thoroughly enjoy being home. It brings me a lot of comfort and even after having fun living away at school, I always enjoy coming home for the weekend. Home>anywhere else. And the hardest part about being homesick in Florida is that I can't just go home as I please.

September Update!

Yikes, I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. Totally did not mean for that to happen. I guess it just means I'm having too much fun to sit down and write something. But what's even crazier is that I can't believe it's been over a month since I've been living in Florida! I feel like I was accepted into the Disney College Program just yesterday, and now I'm living the dream. 

Sunday, September 6, 2015



So Thursday, September 3rd was my Traditions. When starting any new job, its newest employees must go through an orientation of some sort before they can begin training. Disney has an orientation too, except it is so much more than that. At Traditions, Disney introduces you to the heritage and history of the Disney company, what they expect of their cast members, how we all play a part in the future of Disney, and welcoming you to their big family. 

I can't really share too much of what happened but Traditions was a very emotional experience, especially for a huge Disney fan like myself. It kept hitting me while I was sitting there at Disney University that I am now a part of this amazing company. 

Disney's newest cast member! 

Check-In, Casting, and More!

Good morning everyone! 

Monday, August 31, 2015 marked the beginning of my Disney College Program! My check-in time was at 9:30 am. Check-in was super smooth despite the thick Florida air we endured while standing outside in line. We were given program guides as well as our housing information and where we will be working! I got all the roommates I wanted and I'm so incredibly happy about that. I also found out that I will be working at MAGIC KINGDOM! More specifically, Main Street USA! I am the happiest camper -- Magic Kingdom is exactly where I wanted to work, so thank you Disney for making my dreams come true! 

I was able to move into my apartment and settle in before I had to move on to Casting. My room comes with its own bathroom and a walk-in closet. I plan on taking pictures/videos when everything is all cleaned up and once we're completely moved in. It's slowly starting to feel like home! 

Casting went smooth as well; there, we filled out important paperwork such as I-9 forms and got our fingerprints and our first schedule for training. It was very exciting to be at Casting because they have really nice pictures all over the place of characters and of people that work for the company loving their job.

First Full Day in Florida

Good evening everyone!

To spare you with the long details of our 15+ hour road trip down to Florida, I'll sum it up really quickly. After getting set back from some traffic, we were put a bit behind schedule and had to spend the night in North Carolina rather than South Carolina. Not a bad thing, it just meant we had more driving to do on Saturday. We made it to our hotel, Disney's Pop Century, around 7:20 on Saturday, August 29th and we pretty much just checked in, ate dinner and relaxed in the room.

The adorable Pop Century Resort! 
Today, Sunday August 30th, was our first full day in Florida. Kelsey and I woke up at 5:30 am (after getting about only five hours of sleep) to meet up with her family at Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. I purchased my preferred annual pass which is good for an entire year -- I get to visit the parks anytime I want and also get some discounts and free parking with it. Definitely has its perks!

Off to Neverland


When there's a smile in your heart, there's no better time to start...

Today is the big day! The moment I've been waiting for my whole life. I leave the comfort of my home, a place I've been familiar with for 22 years, to head to the Most Magical Place on Earth for four months. It's time to begin a new chapter in my life, one that will be filled with new experiences and emotions. It has been crazy hard saying "see you later" to my loved ones, but I know that in just four short months this will all be over. In about less than an hour, I'm going to head down to my roommate Kelsey's house, and from there, we will begin the long roadtrip to Orlando. I have no idea how long it'll take to get there, but we plan on spending the night in South Carolina and then continuing our way on Saturday. 

This is probably the last post I'll be making until I'm in Florida. I can't wait to update everyone on my travels. I've never been on a roadtrip this long before so wish me luck on my sanity! 

Have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon!

Hey guys!

It is unbelievable how quickly this past summer has gone. In just eight days, I will be checking in at Vista Way (the center of Disney housing) and beginning my Disney College Program. It's amazing to think that it's already been over six (very long) months since I first got accepted, and now check-in is right around the corner.

Magic Bands!

Hey guys! Look what came today! 

I'm so excited! My roommate Kelsey and I are staying on Disney's property before our DCP check-in. We booked our hotel just last week. I just received the magic bands that we'll use for our stay!

For those that don't know what magic bands are, or don't know how they work, they are pretty much an all-in-one device that makes your Disney vacation a heck of a lot easier. They help you connect all the things that you plan out for your trip from My Disney Experience. My Disney Experience is your online Disney vacation planner -- your reservations, accommodations, itinerary, Fast Passes, etc are all booked and found on there.

Once your My Disney Experience is connected to your magic band, the magic band works as your resort key, tickets to the parks, Fast Passes for rides, and you can even connect your credit card on there to buy merchandise and food. Super nifty!

From my past two experiences with the magic band, I have found them to be quite comfortable and easy to manage. You can adjust the size of the band and can customize the colors online. At the parks, you can buy cute accessories to decorate your magic band with if you so choose. One of the greatest things about the magic bands are that they're water proof! Don't worry about getting caught in a Florida downpour while wearing one -- and don't even bother taking it off before taking a dip in the pool! They're called magic bands for a reason LOL.

I'm so excited to wear my latest magic band to Disney and hope to collect all the colors they offer!

I hope you have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon!

30 Days Pre Check-In Thoughts

Hello everyone,

Today is August 1, 2015. In 27 days, my roommate Kelsey and I will begin our roadtrip to the Sunshine Stage. And in 30 days is the Disney College Program check-in date for August 31st arrivals!

Now that I'm in the final month of being home surrounded by the people I care about, it's really beginning to sink in that I'll be leaving very soon. It's unbelievable how fast time has flown the past couple months. I feel like I'm in a mad scramble to see as many people as I can before I leave and spending as much time as I can with the people closest to me. It's crazy that I've already said some goodbyes to people, like some close college friends that live far from my hometown that I won't get to see until next year. There's no time to waste because before I know it, it'll be time to load up the car and head south for the fall.

I'm experiencing a mix of emotions at this current state. I'm so excited to begin my journey with Disney and ready to experience all the magic and find out my work location/meet new friends, nervous about the unknown and the uncertainty, sad to leave people I care about behind and not being able to see them for a long time, overwhelmed with how little time I have left to prepare, a little scared to live completely on my own (I don't count my experiences dorming at school), and a lot more. I guess these are all completely normal things to feel and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.

So for now, I will continue to spend a lot of time with the people I care about, eat as many Jersey bagels, pizza and disco fries before I go, and slowly (or maybe quickly) get ready for Disney.

I hope you all have a magical day, and I'll see ya real soon!

We've Got A Lot To Do!

...Is it one lump or two?

Thanks Mrs. Potts for my post title.

Hello all!

Today, I checked my Disney College Program countdown and realized I have 65 days until check-in! SIXTY FIVE DAYS. Which means in 62 days, my roommate Kelsey and I will be making the road trip down to Florida! 62 days sounds like a lot of time left, but with my busy summer schedule, I'm beginning to worry that I won't have nearly as much time to prepare as I would like. I work Monday through Friday for 11 hours each day. When I get home, I either pass out or have plans immediately after work. And on the weekends, I try to maintain my social life by going out with friends.

So what exactly do I even need to do to prepare?

Obviously I need to pack. But there's tons of things I need to buy -- my Traditions outfit, professional clothing, my Halloween costumes, things for the apartment, new clothes and possibly a new camera. Then when everything is bought, I have to organize them and get them ready to take down. All while packing as lightly as possible so everything can fit into Kelsey's car.

Am I stressed? You could say that. But excited for sure! I guess I should start!

I hope you all have a magical day, and I'll see ya real soon! :)

Disney College Program Fall 2015 Application Process

Hey lovely people,

I have many family and friends wondering about how I applied to the Disney College Program, or perhaps there are some Disney College Program hopefuls out there that want to apply to the program that want to hear about someone's application experiences. I'm more than happy to share my application process here!

You can read about the Disney College Program extensively here to save you all some time: I will mainly be discussing my process in this post. This was the first and only time I have applied for the Disney College Program, so this is my only experience applying.

When I decided that I wanted to seriously apply and participate for the Disney College Program, I researched which program would be suited best for me. Applicants have the option to choose from four programs: Fall, Fall Advantage, Spring, and Spring Advantage. The Fall Advantage and Spring Advantage programs include the summer months. I knew I didn't want to work during the extra months because 1) I felt like that would be too long for me to be away from home and 2) I have a summer job that I love and have been working there for some time now, and wouldn't want to be away from that job. So I then had to choose between Spring and Fall. I wanted to choose Fall because there is so much going on then -- they have the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and more unique festivities. That all sounded like a lot of fun for me, especially since I've never been to Disney for the holidays. But knowing that I'd be away from home for the holidays had me thinking, maybe I should just do the Spring program instead. I eventually talked myself into deciding that although I'll be homesick for Thanksgiving and Christmas, participating in the Fall Program would be the most exciting for me.

Applications for the Fall/Fall Advantage program usually drop in late January/early February. So the semester before, I did tons of extra research on the application process and started gathering practice interview questions incase I made it to the phone interview. This definitely helped me a lot by preparing a few months early a little at a time.

Sometime in January, I joined the Disney College Program Fall/Fall Advantage 2015 Facebook group to stay in the know about all things DCP Fall 2015 related. I wanted to know right away when the applications dropped because I wanted to apply on the first day.

Applications dropped on January 26th, a week earlier than I thought it would. Of course, I applied right away. About an hour later, I got my "Thank You For Applying" email. It was getting real!

An hour after I got that email, still on January 26th, I got the email that I was selected to participate in the web based interview. Everyone is required to participate in the WBI before moving on to a phone interview. This web based interview checks to see if you are a strong enough candidate for the program.

I remember freaking out in class as snow was falling from the sky, too excited to pay attention and so happy that I was selected just to fill out my WBI. I raced back to my dorm after class and in a quiet environment (thanks to my roommate for leaving the room so I could answer the questions in peace!) took my WBI.

After taking my WBI, which took about 20 minutes give or take, I saw that I had passed and was moving on to the phone interview! I was shaking with relief and also nerves - the real deal was about to happen! That same day, January 26th, I selected the date of my phone interview, which I chose for January 30th at 11:15 AM. I figured the sooner I had the interview, the better. It meant less time for me to sit anxiously thinking about it.

The next few days, I anxiously prepared myself for the interview. Special shout out to my friends and my parents for keeping me sane during those moments, and for doing mock interviews with me. I probably would have lost it without you!

The night before my phone interview, I wrote some of my favorite inspiring Disney quotes on post it notes and hung them above my desk where I would be sitting during my interview. I thought that it would help calm my nerves a bit during my interview, and I can say it did! I also tried to go to bed at a reasonable hour, but I mostly ended up tossing and turning in my sleep.

I woke up way before my alarm went off that morning because I was so nervous. I went over all my questions a few more times to refresh my memory. I listened to some Disney music that morning too, to remind myself why I chose to do the program in the first place. An hour before interview time, I just sat in my desk, waiting.

My interview happened a few minutes after the time I selected, which had me freaking out because I thought they forgot about me haha. Obviously that wasn't the case. When my interviewer called, I made sure to write down their name right as they told me so I could refer to their name during my interview and wouldn't forget. That's probably one of the best DCP phone interview tips I can give -- make sure you write down their name and call them by name during the interview! It's professional and respectful to the person who is interviewing you.

Around midnight on January 31st, I got the Thank You For Interviewing email. And that was the last email I got for awhile because now it was time to play the waiting game.

On February 19th, at 4:48 PM, I got my acceptance email! I was sitting in the student center eating dinner before my night class when I found out. I was in such disbelief. The second wave of acceptances had happened that day but I thought it all ended after lunch. I figured I wasn't going to be a part of that acceptance wave that day. So I was clearly not expecting to get this glorious acceptance email!

It is honestly the best email I've ever gotten to this day. 

So there you have it! My very first time applying to the Disney College Program and I got in the first try. I honestly feel so blessed and certainly very thankful for this incredible opportunity. I can't wait to share my memories with everyone along the way! 

Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon :)

Where Have I Been?

Hello family and friends. Hello lovely people of the Internet. And hello to myself, because I think I'm probably the only one reading this!

I've gone MIA yet again from this blog, and I didn't really mean for that to happen. To be honest, nothing much has happened recently that is Disney College Program related. Since my last post, my spring semester has ended, my school year job ended, I started an online summer class, I've been desperately trying to find work before my full time summer job begins at he end of June, and I've been trying to hangout with my home friends as much as possible.

So, with my DCP check-in being 87 days away now (!!!!!!), I decided I want to start taking my blog a little more seriously, as well as my YouTube channel. I want to become a more active blogger and vlogger. My goal is to make a post once a week on here, and to upload one video a week on my Youtube Channel (search LindseyDCP on YouTube to find me!). I really want to capture everything before, during, and after my program. There's no better time to start than now!

You can expect to see my next blog post sometime next week! Sorry this post has been really boring, but I promise they'll get more interesting (especially once I'm down in Florida!).

I hope everyone has a magical day and I'll see ya real soon!

Walt Disney World Spring Break March 2015 Day 5

Hello everyone,

Well, it's been about a month since my last post. I did not mean to disappear like that! I'm so sorry! School has been pretty crazy, and when I'm not in class or doing homework, I'm at work or trying to relax. I'll do my best to post not as spread apart like this. Not that anyone is probably reading this anyway lol. I just really want to have something to look back on from my program so I'd better practice posting more often!

Day 5 was Epcot! We went during the Flower and Garden Festival. The park is gorgeous enough, but with the beautiful plants and flowers they add, it's even more beautiful.

I met Mickey at Epcot and let me just tell you, it was an emotional time haha. I had my "I'm celebrating my DCP" button on and Mickey was SO excited. I said I'd be working for him really shortly. He started jumping up and down and gave me the biggest hug. I told him I would see him real soon (pun intended) and I wanted to cry from the Disney feels lol. Mickey is the best. 

Marina and I spent most of the day "traveling around the world" at the World Showcase. Definitely my favorite part of Epcot and the reason why I love coming back.

We ate dinner at one of my favorite Disney restaurants, Beaches and Cream! I got the grilled cheese and you're probably thinking, wow, out of everything they had, you got a grilled cheese? NO. This is the BEST grilled cheese I've ever had. It was a blend of six cheeses and was just so soft and delicious. I can't wait to go to Beaches and Cream on the reg during my program. 

We then watched Illuminations at one of the best spots in the World Showcase, JAPAN! 

And then we saw NSYNC which was the most perfect end to a perfect day at Epcot! Anyone who knows me knows I am OBSESSED with NSYNC. (Yes. Still obsessed. Don't judge.) 

Stay tuned for Day 6 and the last day of my spring break trip! Once I'm done posting about my Disney World spring break adventures, expect to see some posts about my interview process for the DCP and other CP related things! 

I hope you all have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon!

Walt Disney World Spring Break March 2015 Days 3 and 4

Hey guys!

Thanks for giving this blog some attention! I am excited for my program to actually start so I can document some really awesome stuff. In the mean time, here's some more from my Disney World spring break trip!

Day 3 was a day off from the parks and a day to rejuvenate at the pool/hotel. It was honestly much needed! Day 1, I was running on three hours of sleep and then Day 2 consisted of a full day at Magic Kingdom. So clearly I had some resting to do! I enjoyed sleeping in and tanning by the pool.
Here is the piano pool! I tanned by the bigger pool, but how cute is this?! 

It was so refreshing swimming in a nice pool with the Florida sun shining down on me. I got some much needed Vitamin D and a nice tan.

Cooling off with a delicious Mickey bar! 

After getting ready, we headed to Downtown Disney for some shopping! 

Then we headed to Fort Wildneress because we had reservations at Hoop Dee Doo Revue for dinner! I'd never been to Fort Wilderness before so it was really exciting checking out this part of Disney's property. It is a campground, so people can bring their campers with them or sleep in cabins. There is horseback riding, trails for hiking, volleyball courts, playgrounds and more. Although it is a campground, I still felt like we were on Disney's property and could feel the magic there. 

Dinner was awesome! For those that do not know, Hoop Dee Doo Revue is one of Disney's most popular dinner shows. You can expect to enjoy a night of entertainment and delicious food here! The actors put on a great Western themed show with slapstick style comedy. There is singing, dancing and lots of audience interaction. Dinner is all you can eat salad (not pictured), barbecued ribs, fried chicken, corn, beans and mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious! Hoop Dee Doo was well worth my money and I plan on returning here during my program! 

Day 4 of the trip was Hollywood Studios! Fun fact, sometimes I still call it MGM. I didn't really start calling it Hollywood Studios until my trip there last year; I was just so used to calling the park MGM! 
It was a fun filled day of going on rides! 

A great day for eating... (we went to Pizza Planet, Sci-Fi Dine In and I got a popcorn bucket wahoo!) 

And bought the cutest pair of ears EVER! All of Ariel's sea friends from The Voyage of the Little Mermaid told me I needed them, so I listened and bought them. 
It was an overall successful day at Hollywood Studios! I have a huge love for this park. Maybe because I love the whole behind the scenes feel of Hollywood, but it's really just such a fun place. I think it would be super cool place to be placed for work there. Some of the costumes I saw were super cute and I sincerely love the atmosphere of the park!

Anyway, stay tuned to read about the last two days of my trip! I'll probably break those into two parts but we'll see. Thanks so much for reading my post and for following along with my Disney College Program journey (or the beginning of it, at least). 

Have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon soon! 

Love, Lindsey :)

Walt Disney World Spring Break March 2015 Days 1 and 2

Hello everyone!

I took a trip to Walt Disney World for spring break this year! Back in January, I was really bummed I didn't have any plans for spring break. We've had a really cold winter and I really wanted to get away from that and escape to somewhere warm for a week. I had gone to Disney on my spring break last year and since I knew I was applying to the DCP, I thought that maybe I should visit somewhere different this spring break. I thought really hard about a few different options, but realized the places I wanted to go to would be extremely expensive or would be difficult to get around because of transportation since I'm not old enough to rent a car. So my friend Marina and I decided to go to Disney!

We stayed at the All Star Music Resort!

Last year we stayed at All Star Movies. I just need to stay at All Star Sports to say I've stayed at all the All Star hotels! I've developed a special place in my heart for these hotels. They're so fun and brightly decorated, and best of all, affordable. If you're looking to take a trip to Disney World and would like to stay on property, definitely check out one of the All Star hotels. I could honestly just stay at the hotels and still have a fun time! There were two pools at All Star Music, an arcade, picnic areas, a bar, a food court with tons of options, and fun recreational activities like pool games and movie nights by the pool! We actually caught Monsters Inc at All Star Sports one night!

Our first day consisted of going to Downtown Disney, eating at Earl of Sandwich and Ghiradelli's, shopping, swimming, and eating pizza and wings from the hotel for dinner.

The next day was Magic Kingdom! It is always super emotional going to Magic Kingdom -- it just is the image of pure Disney magic and I always feel so happy when I'm there. It makes me feel like a child again and I honestly feel so carefree when I'm there. This time was even more special because I have now been accepted to the Disney College Program so I know now that I get to work for this amazing company in the very near future.

So many magical things happened that day. For one, I tried my very first Dole Whip! After years of going on vacation to Disney, I have finally tasted it and now LOVE it! I was celebrating my birthday on this trip, and the people at Aloha Isle saw my birthday button and said the Dole Whip was on them. So magical! It made me so happy to have been recognized like that and it made my first Dole Whip a lot more special. I really appreciated that. I will be eating plenty of these on my College Program!

(mine is on the left)

I met Princess Tiana for the first time and she was the sweetest! She saw my DCP Acceptance button and said, "Welcome to the family!" It really hit me in that moment that I was getting to work for Walt Disney World. She said that she hoped she would see me around more often, and I told her I would definitely be visiting her a lot when I come back in August!

Couldn't complete a trip to Magic Kingdom without lunch at Peco's Bill!

I don't want this post to get too long so I'm going to stop here and continue talking about the rest of my trip in another post. I just thought it would be fun to share about my most recent Disney trip, and I'm happy to have this blog so that I can look back someday and remember all my wonderful Disney memories!

I hope you all have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon :)

Hi everyone!

My name is Lindsey and I have been accepted to the Disney College Program for Fall 2015! My role is Merchandise and I am so excited to be a part of the magic at Walt Disney World this year!

On this blog, I plan on posting updates before, during, and after my program to help better capture memories and the emotions I'll be feeling during this whole process. I have well over 100 days to go so it might seem silly of me to be starting this up now, but I want to be able to remember everything about this one of a kind opportunity. This will also be a great way to update my family and friends back home when I am on the program, as well as reaching out to current, past, and future CP's!

In the mean time, make sure to check out my DCP Instagram: @lindseydcp, as well as my YouTube account: LindseyDCP. I know, I'm super creative with the usernames haha. I haven't posted any videos to the account yet but I'll be working on a few soon!

I hope you have a magical day and I'll see ya real soon!

<3 Lindsey
