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.

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.
